The idea -- and the technology -- behind SOUNDY THINGIE is pretty amazing. There are so many ways to customize the sounds you create, all by simply drawing lines with your finger. However, without musical skill and knowledge, you're unlikely to be able to create anything akin to a tune. Most kids will simply enjoy creating a blipping, bleeping cacophony.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
