This augmented reality app fits the bill if you want your kid to learn some basics about what happens at the White House in a unique way. As the dollar bill's components begin to spin and swirl on the screen, it's amazing to watch 1600 transform the image into the White House. Created by the White House Historical Association and Nexus Studios, this app is intended to help kids gain "a better sense of the institution and its purpose." It does this but only at the most surface level. If you're looking for an in-depth understanding of the history and functions of the White House, this isn't that source. But for a free app that requires nothing more than a dollar bill and a little patience, this is a fun way to explore 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

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.
