Is It Any Good?

The "magic" of seeing a favorite toy come to life on-screen will delight fans, but they'll need to practice a bit of patience while they wait for the races to load. The games are playable without in-app purchases or actual die-cast cars, but putting the toys into the game is a big part of the fun. Still, the scanning process is tedious, requiring a steady hand and adult assistance. Also, the games can take quite a while to load, counting down from 10 each time. Playing is so simple that this is probably best for toddlers and young preschoolers who love Cars, but they'll likely love it a lot.

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.
