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.

creative entertainment

This was a great way to keep my child entertained while waiting for their sibling’s after-school classes to end. It did help to be watchful to avoid clicking out of the app and into ads.
