This sweet racing game is more about creativity than speed. Kids design their car, piece by piece, create the race track and add obstacles, and choose their racer. The race itself is quick but fun, and kids can see the time it took to complete the track. There's no scary danger, but characters do pout a bit if they don't win the race. Details such as buckling the seat belt before a race make it even more preschool-friendly. The biggest downside is that the controls can be tricky, especially if kids want to control the speed and honk the horn. Also, slightly older kids may expect to control the car, but they can only control the speed and swipe when prompted to control tricks. Having the option to steer would be great for kids who are ready for that level of fine motor control, as would more interaction with creating or fixing the car. Overall, however, it gives little kids some fun opportunities to see their creations in action.

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.
