Is It Any Good?

This digital farm is brimming with charm and attempts to let kids experience food production without getting dirty or waking up at the crack of dawn. Understanding where food comes from is an important aspect to kids' health and community awareness, so it's really neat to follow the process from the beginning to the final product in the store. Though kids must complete several steps along the way toward producing each item, the game does oversimplify what it takes to make jam or collect and jar honey, and kids may find it frustrating that it can take some trial and error to figure out exactly what they're supposed to do in each game. Some kids -- especially younger ones -- may not have the patience to collect 20 eggs or make five salads in an effort to satisfy customers' requests. Overall, however, the graphics are fun, the games give a good general sense of farm practices, and kids can enjoy running the farmer's market.

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.
