Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (1 ):

Taken individually, each character's party app is delightfully Disney, with engaging games and excellent graphics. However, the bulkiness of Disney Royal Celebrations as a whole and its consumerism puts a damper on its kid-friendliness. On the upside, kids get to express creativity by designing the invitation and decorating for the party. The princess's banter also is refreshingly witty, which helps pass the time as each party loads. Frustratingly, putting all the princesses with locked content in front of kids puts kids and parents in an awkward purchasing position: Their doll will only unlock one party, and each individual "Princess Pack" costs up to $3. In terms of size, the full app takes up more than a full gigabyte, and each party takes some time to load, which may be off-putting for some little ones. Since Jasmine is the only princess of color in the app, including Tiana and Pocahontas would provide more options for 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.
