DR. PANDA'S BUS DRIVER is fun, has great graphics, and is easily accessible, even for young kids. Kids will enjoy playing driver, as they're in charge of letting cute animal passengers get on the bus or cross the street. The scenery is interesting, and it's fun to admire the mountains, cute towns, drawbridges, and more. It would be nice if kids' actions (or inaction) had realistic consequences. For example, if kids choose not to stop to fill the gas tank, the bus could eventually stop driving, or a tire could be damaged if kids went over a speed bump too quickly. It might also be frustrating that kids have no control over what activity is offered. That is, if kids want to re-paint their bus, they have to wait until the opportunity is randomly cycled through. Overall, though, Dr. Panda's Bus Driver is an engaging simulation game for young kids.

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.
