BIG KID LIFE FAIRY PRINCESS tells cute stories like "Unicorns Like Kites" and "Brother Troll's Bedtime" in interactive ways that young kids who love fairy tales will likely enjoy enough to not notice they're also practicing reading comprehension. The three levels of play become increasingly more challenging, incorporating some letter recognition and more difficult storylines, but none too difficult to cease being more fun than work for these little learners. The Mom-Comm messaging system and other parent-centered aspects of this app are quite interesting and novel, although it's not certain that they'd be worth the time or that kids won't lose interest in sending the messages through this simple app sooner than later; the concept may be even more beneficial for apps with more advanced learning levels and more real reasons to prompt communication between kids and parents.

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.
