Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Songs, videos, books, and simple games are kid-friendly and cover a wide range of topics, but there's still room for improvement. The books are great: They're full-color, engaging, actual print books that are presented in digital format. Kids can read by themselves or be read to and can choose to have the text highlighted as it's being read. Videos present a nice mix of adventure, stories, songs, and craft ideas to do at home, though some seem to aim too high for the app's target age range. The games are more of a mixed bag: Though most have appeal, they often seem overly simplistic and don’t leave much room for meaningful learning. Also, some parents have had trouble accessing the full content after paying, saying that they're constantly logged out and can't get back in. Given the steep subscription price, before shelling out the bucks it's definitely worth it for parents to try out the free trial to see if the format, content, and user experience work for their kids.

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.
