Is It Any Good?

Kids can be as creative as they want with their stories, incorporating different characters and props, or they can tap the lightbulb for a story idea. The verbal instructions delivered each step of the way make it possible for preschool-age Dora fans to easily create and tell their stories. Each scene includes a bit of magic that leads to another scene, giving kids another layer to add to their stories if they want. The most unique part -- and probably what will be most thrilling for kids -- is the ability to create their own characters from the diverse range of skin, hair, and eye colors. Kids can put themselves or their friends into their stories, and they'll get to make lots of choices, making this app a great opportunity for open-ended 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.
