Very rudimentary counting game may be fun for some.

My 3 yr old really likes this game. While it is simple, it is a great app to teach kids counting. If your kids can already count up to ten with ease, this is probably too simple for them.

Is It Any Good?

The humor in BERT'S BAG comes out of the Bert character -- he's famous for being the boring muppet. His comically dull hobbies include collecting paper clips and counting pigeons. So having Bert's "video game" consist of nothing more than him opening a paper bag and counting whatever's inside is, in itself, kind of funny. But it's a joke that could wear thin quickly with preschoolers who are looking for a bit more in their virtual play time.

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.
