Is It Any Good?

Foldify empowers kids to go far beyond the typical paper airplane or folded paper box. This brilliant app makes paper crafting so simple that early elementary school-age kids can design simple creations, yet the diverse collection of design options means this app can support older, more skilled artists in making whatever their imaginations envision. The online gallery shows what Foldify users around the world are making, and users can print those shared creations, too. Sharing, sending, and printing is easy, as is folding the paper to make 3-D, standalone objects. There's not much needed to add to Foldify's fun, other than more stringent ways to protect kids from accidentally posting creations that may include their own personal photos or names to the online gallery (right now it only requires swiping two fingers).

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.
