Heavy on the "hard" monkey topics- if not racism!

Fun but not much to do

My 2 year liked it for about 5 minutes. Very limited stuff to do.

Is It Any Good?

Kids say (2 ):

FIVE LITTLE MONKEYS is an easy diversion for very young ones. They get to choose from three song genres: country, rock, and pop. They also have plenty of other things to tap on: a bouncy ball, an alarm clock, a family photo, and more. A stoplight in the corner sits monkeys down when you hit "stop," and they won't jump again until you tap "go." The highlighted song lyrics aren't completely in sync with the singing, but they go by too fast for kids to get any reading practice out of it anyway. The final cute touch is a monkey's finger tapping the inside of the screen once kids have finished the song. Maybe he wants to come out and play. Just keep his jumping feet away from your kid's bed.

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.
