Kids who are fans of Freckleface Strawberry will recognize the character and style of this app and will enjoy the introduction story before the monster-making activity. Some parts of the intro story include interactive elements, asking kids to answer questions or tap certain things on the screen (some of that interactivity may move along too quickly for younger kids, which could be frustrating if they want adequate time to think about their answers). After watching and listening to the story for the first play session, kids can skip it and move right into the monster-making activity, which is the centerpiece of this app and quite fun, even if it is limited to this one activity. Freckleface Strawberry says encouraging things to kids as they choose their monster characteristics ("That's the best monster I've ever seen!"). Once they take the photo of themselves and their monster, kids can save their monsters under the My Monster Collection icon. It can be challenging for younger kids to position themselves properly to take the correct image for the frame, so parents many need to assist with that part.

FRECKLEFACE STRAWBERRY MONSTER MAKER GAME is a generally easy way for kids to create silly (not very scary) monsters that can be fun for at least a few play sessions. The social-sharing options, however, are not age-appropriate and should be hidden behind a parental gate (or simply removed from the app).

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.
