Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Young kids probably won't understand some of the concepts introduced in COLOR VACUUM unless an adult explains them. This doesn't mean, however, that they can't learn a lot about color through the simple free-play fun of collecting colors. The opening instructions provide a fun story, but aren't clear as far as directions. The directions given within the three different modes of play are not child-friendly and will also need adult guidance. Color Vacuum would be glowingly improved by better explanations, instructions, and labels on the device parts.

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.
