Relatable stories with silly characters offer a nice open canvas for parents and kids to get creative together. Animal Antics (for Families) isn't fancy, but it's easy to use and has great ideas for sparking thought and conversation. The story prompts lead caregivers and kids to focus on a theme, but they also have plenty of space to narrate the story in whatever way feels right. Open-ended questions are a great help, particularly when kids don't know what to say. In fact, parents may want to talk through all the questions before they or their kids pinpoint what they want their character to say. This app is meant to spark play and conversation for kids and caregivers -- or even siblings or other pairs -- and isn't meant for solo play. Even the turn taking feature can be important practice for the back and forth nature of conversation. Animal Antics (for Families) can great fun for loved ones to tell stories while talking about every day experiences -- together.

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.
