Shameless

It’s just a shameless app trying to ride the coattails of Encanto.

Is It Any Good?

It's great to see a rich collection of strong story-based content make a clear effort to emphasize diversity. Encantos - Play, Learn, Grow relies on storytelling to teach valuable lessons ranging from mindfulness and emotional regulation to problem solving and math. Some videos and stories -- such as the Tiny Travelers collection -- are purposeful in highlighting different cultures and creating a global understanding. But the majority of content focuses on general early learning themes that also happen to feature varied voices and characters -- and do so in two languages. Overall the quality of the graphics, storytelling, and educational content is high. Encantos - Play, Learn, Grow isn't as strong, however, in its collection of interactive games, which makes the app mostly a library of content to passively consume. It should also be noted that although the target audience is young, the stories don't have a read-to-me option. So, pre-readers will have trouble engaging with all the content on their own.

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.
