Is It Any Good?

Incorporating STEM into everything isn't always a great educational idea. Letters formed using mechanical parts are a cute abstract representation, but preschoolers learning to recognize and form letters are not going to benefit from approximations. The interface isn't very preschooler-friendly, either, with no visual cues or verbal instructions. The vocabulary in the spelling section also isn't on-target for this age range. While learning specific terms such as "fuse" and "axle" is great, words such as "tec" and "klic" (if they're actually even words) will confuse emerging spellers.

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.
