Blatant Frozen rip-off is inappropriate for small kids.

A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

The app literally tells you what to do next: A flashing arrow points to the next tool to use, and the app only allows you to use the tool in the prescribed way.

Violence

Players cut Anna open while performing a Caesarian section to remove the baby. No blood.

Sex

Kids might have questions about how Anna got pregnant. 

Language
Consumerism

Although the characters are very obviously based on the ones from Frozen, the app isn't authorized by Disney. It also plays streaming ads mid-birth. 

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that although Anna Giving Birth might seem like a continuation of Frozen, it's a strange, blatant attempt to cash in on the movie's fame. The app likely will prompt younger kids to ask about how Anna got pregnant and could horrify and confuse them, as they're instructed to cut her stomach open during a C-section. It also contains streaming ads that you can't skip or control. This isn't an app for the younger fans of the movie, and it has questionable value for older ones.

Review

Should be for your adult because Anna is giving birth and that is the right age for them to play.

What's it about?

In ANNA GIVING BIRTH, you'll have to sedate and perform a C-section on a pregnant character who looks strikingly like Frozen's Anna, who's married here (we presume) to a character who's a dead ringer for Kristoff. After an arrow directs you to use a heart monitor, you'll drag it over Anna's belly to hear her baby's heartbeat. When a heart icon is fully filled, an arrow will direct you to a syringe; an "x" on Anna's arm marks the spot, and you click on the plunger. When Anna is asleep, you'll follow the magic arrow and use various tools to freeze her belly, cut her stomach (the cut is a hot pink line), and magic away her incision (there's no blood). Floating hands then whisk the baby away to be weighed and swaddled. There's no variation or goal to the game, as each action can only result in one outcome.

Is it any good?

Anna Giving Birth isn't just bad, it's terrible. It will appeal to young kids still locked in Frozen-mania but is entirely inappropriate for them. Although tweens may be better able to handle the content, it still has little value. There's nothing original about this game, from the blatantly stolen characters to the Kenny G-inspired soundtrack. If it manages to withstand a certain cease-and-desist order by Disney attorneys, it will hopefully be quickly forgotten.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can -- and may have to -- talk about how babies are created. What do your kids already know about how women get pregnant?

  • Families can -- and, again, likely will have to -- talk about how births occur and how this app doesn't depict a realistic one. What do your kids already know about the birth process?

  • What does it mean to be an "unauthorized" game (or movie or book)? How does the original version differ from the unauthorized version? How can you tell the difference between authorized and unauthorized content?
