This simple little musical app can be fun for kids who like to sing, though it might not have much staying power. It's really neat to listen to the blobs respond to your own voice, and even mimic your words. Singers will certainly appreciate the automatic harmonies. Kids can experiment with turning each blob on and off to hear what their unique voice adds. Kids have to sing pretty slowly to make it all work well. Some kids may actually find it calming or meditative to chant slowly and listen to the harmonious responses. Unfortunately, when kids sing together with the blobs, it's hard to hear anything other than their own voice -- even more so because they need to wear headphones to activate the sing-together function. Particularly because of that, it's nice to be able to record the singing session so that kids can listen back later and hear how it all fits together. Although there's not much going on, it may take kids a bit of experimentation to learn how to play around with the different options. Overall, although it's fun for a bit, Chantlings doesn't do that much, so kids may not find reasons to keep coming back to it.

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.
