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.

Great for preschoolers and up

It requires some coordination. We had to help our 4 year old to aim the remote, but once we did that he had no problems. He really enjoyed it.

I was suprised by this!

This is a must Buy game for kids! It's fun, and Educational! I never thought those two would meet! The Story and explore modes are over quickly, but man, oh man, do they make you use your brain! Yes, there is a bit of Violence, like when a character gets hit with a Bomb, Laser, Hose, ETC. But they don't really get hurt. The one reason why I'm saying it's for kids 9 or Older, is because the puzzles can be kind of difficult. The stage creator ends almost limitless replay value and Posablitys, and a Parent must by this for their child!
