Swapping faces with your friends with this app can be monstrous and hilarious, but the Internet search and social sharing make it best for tweens. Want to paint your face like Ziggy Stardust or see how you look with Hagrid's beard? You can do that here with remarkable flexibility and success. Though the built-in face choices can feel a little random (J.S. Bach?), that option to search the Web for faces is a fun, surprising dimension that invites creativity and has real potential to delight kids and adults alike. While the search filter doesn't let naked body parts through, you can get images of people in their underwear and drug paraphernalia, so those things might show up in the public gallery. Also note this app topped the sales charts for a reason: It's weird and pretty wacky, and swapping faces with your kids or your friends might just be the stuff of nightmares for some. Plus, there's no privacy policy or terms of service available on the developer's website, which might make this an iffy choice for kids and families.

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.
