Is It Any Good?

EMOTIONARY BY ME.MU is an easy-to-use app that, as a whole, is a good way for kids to learn how they feel in different situations. Using a daily diary entry can help your child and you identify behavior patterns and what makes your child feel a certain way.

The built-in feeling images could be enhanced by using both genders and more diversity, and it would be great if the feelings could have an auditory component so kids hear the emotion as well as see it. The app also would benefit from a mini-tutorial to help parents who are new to this type of tool help kids identify their feelings.

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.
