Playing with Bubble Puppy is really fun, both in the house, grooming and caring for him, and outside, playing with him using the toys bought with game rewards. The design is awkward, though, which makes it hard for preschoolers to use. The app starts in landscape mode for kids to create or choose their usernames and select a game. The games are played in portrait mode, though, so preschoolers have to be savvy enough to shift the device. The learning games, content-wise, are appropriately challenging for a preschooler -- matching letter and numbers -- but the design of the games has kids moving objects in ways that are just too tricky for a preschooler's fine-motor skills and reflexes. BUBBLE PUPPY PLAY AND LEARN wins for the play but falls short on the learning part of the game, which just doesn't add up to much for such a pricey app.

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.
