Like with other apps by Duck Duck Moose, Draw and Tell is an attractive and engaging app for kids. While there may not be much in the way of instruction, feedback, or prompts to guide the storytelling, it is very kid friendly and intuitive to use. It leaves the creating to the kids – and there's plenty to be had with the variety of characters, objects, scenes, and more. Some kids may need more guidance than others in terms of coming up with story ideas, especially because Draw and Tell doesn't have a specific theme like superheroes or princesses. And for kids who are more interested in making art than in storytelling, they can still create their own drawings or use the coloring templates. Draw and Tell gives kids the option to be story makers or just to simply color for fun.

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.
