Simple game, but app is full of ads and purchases.

ARTHUR CHRISTMAS: ELF RUN PREMIUM is a fine game. Kids who like the movie will likely enjoy the game. But the amount of advertising and opportunities for in-app purchases overruns the game itself. Whether promoting purchasing more "treats" (from $.99 to a $49.99 in-app purchase) to suggesting kids buy more Arthur stuff like a book or the app as a gift, this app seems more about promoting the movie and finding ways to make more money off of it than providing a fun game for kids.

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.
