Is It Any Good?

These educational activities are pretty fun, and kids will enjoy the aliens' antics as they move around and make funny noises -- like "Oh no!" when one is moved incorrectly or "All right! Whee!" when they are placed correctly. Mastering all of the levels may not take kids very long, though, as there isn't much of a challenge involved and toddlers could even stumble into the correct answers by dragging and dropping indiscriminately.

The matching game has eight short rounds. The puzzle game and dot-to-dot games includes 18 activities each. And kids can choose from eight sticker scenes to embellish. Kids can vary their challenge with the alphabet and numbers, choosing either lowercase or uppercase letters or matching the lowercase letter to the uppercase letter for letter match and choosing numbers 1 to 10, 1 to 20, or 1 to 50 for number match.

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.
