A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Kids can learn to think creatively about words and word sounds, think critically, and create puzzles of their own.
Ease of Play
Some of the puzzles are very challenging; help is available but requires coins.
Violence & Scariness
Some of the images include weapons and/or implied violence (e.g., robbery, war).

Sex, Romance & Nudity
Clues and puzzle results may have suggestive content. An image of a woman in a bikini is labeled "boobs."

Is It Any Good?
Rebus puzzles encourage kids to think about words and how they sound, but they can be challenging, and the app's ads and purchases mar the experience. Equii's puzzles are clever and occasionally quite difficult. Sometimes they require looking at the icons in a different way, saying the words aloud, and thinking about words that sound similar. Kids may do best paired with an adult who can help them sound things out and spell the final answer correctly. Equii could even be fun for a whole family to work through together. It would be nice to have a paid version that was ad-free, even if the in-app purchases were still available. As it stands, it's not appropriate for younger kids.
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.
