Is It Any Good?

No score and no directions really give kids the freedom to be as creative -- and as silly -- as they want in filling their customer's orders. Kids are in control of the kitchen, from choosing the foods to include in the requested dish to deciding how to prepare. And the food appears in the dish just the way they prepared it. If they add whole unsliced veggies to the salad, the customer gets a plate of whole veggies. The 3-D animated characters are adorable, and their reactions give kids feedback on the dishes -- a gentle shake of the head from Panda lets them know they've added too much of a particular spice and the diners respond with pleasure or dislike with their vocal expressions and thought bubbles over their heads. The detail is impressive. The pasta floats to the top as it boils. The fish browns as it is cooked. The eggs scramble up when cooked if they are whisked through the food processor before cooking; otherwise, they fry up in the pan or are boiled in the water. Some more food options would add to the fun, but with the variety of ingredients and plethora of kitchen tools and ways to prepare the foods, kids have lots of options.

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.
