Charming, calm details

My four year old immediately fell in love with Bogga Vacation. There are so many action packed games for kids, so this was a welcome relief: Soothing sounds of waves and calm, but fun details like when you tap the windows on the plane and the passengers turn their heads smiling. My sons favourite is building sand castles. With symmetric decorations ;)

This sweet, summery app walks kids through each step of the trip: packing a suitcase, boarding the plane, and doing fun vacation activities. Though it balances structure and some free expression, there's not much to the games. Kids can't deviate from the order of the play, but they can decorate their sand castles or mix their tropical drinks a bit, and the matching activities are good for developing prereading skills. There's not much open-ended play involved, though, so kids may not find it endlessly playable; once they've created a few sand castles and mixed a few drinks, they'll probably be done. It'll probably hold the most appeal in anticipation of a real-world vacation.

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.
