As an open-ended game, this cooking simulator is fun enough for a few plays, but there are better options out there. There's definitely a certain joy to feeding him burnt broccoli covered in toothpaste, and along the way kids will delight in watching Boffo juggle eggs, sing into a spoon like a microphone, and sneeze as pepper is added. However, it seems tough to get Boffo to display more than either a "yuck" face or a hiccup, even when he's fed a delicious and expertly prepared sausage, cheese, and spinach omelet. Dumb Ways JR Boffo's Breakfast is simple, goofy fun that can occupy wait times in restaurants and doctors' offices, but there are better options out there for games that teach cooking or games that let kids use their imaginations.

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.
