Pretty worlds for Disney faves, but kids must wait or spend.

This app's beautiful scenes will delight Disney fans, but spending diamonds or suffering through waiting times reduces the fun. In terms of appearance and functionality, this app is excellent. Also, the cute sound effects make this app feel quite movie-like, despite no audio for either the instructions or the dialogue between characters. However, the overall pay-or-wait system just isn't kid-friendly. Many actions on Disney Enchanted Tales require wait times to complete, or (as the app encourages) "we can use diamonds to complete it instantly." In fact, the tutorial has kids using diamonds to complete every task, which may encourage them to do it throughout the game. Wait times range from one to 30-plus minutes and keep increasing, and that model may feel like a bit of a dirty trick, especially since demands on money and time ramp up the more you play. Also, though true to the story, some of the dialogue about Belle reinforces stereotypes about girls some parents won't want to perpetuate. No skills are required in this game other than reading and tapping, though parents can use it to reinforce delayed gratification and budgeting.

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.
