Is It Any Good?

This visually beautiful app taps into two things that most kids love: animals and making new creations. Creature Garden by Tinybop includes more than 100 animal parts for kids to combine in thousands of ways to make their own animals. Kids can build virtually any animal they can imagine and learn about animal characteristics in the process. How about a hippo-flamingo-shark? Can a lizard-parrot-turtle fly? In addition to playing with the creative features on this app, racing animals and throwing in some obstacles is just plain fun and lets kids test different features. The breeding station is less creative than the app's other options -- it essentially just sticks two animals together -- but there are plenty of opportunities for kids to design, develop a narrative, and test their creations.

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.
