Doozer Creek is a fascinating idea that may intrigue adults and older kids but is really targeted to the Doozer audience of five and under. Those kids will be dazzled and amused creating their world and just watching what the Doozers "do." Older kids may enjoy creating the world but then be disappointed that not much happens. There's no real goal or objective, and nothing can go wrong. A Doozer may indicate that he is hungry so kids would move him to food. If they don't though, he'll get to it on his own eventually. No harm. The Doozers' interactions with the elements are delightful -- snoring in the house, kicking the soccer ball, and playing on the playground equipment, Doozers continue to wander through Doozer Creek until kids stop playing or clear the mat (with parent's help as that feature is in the parent section) to start over. Play is really limited without the in-app purchases, and the more sets kids have, the longer they'll play.

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.
