Frozen fans will go crazy for this opportunity to intimately interact with their favorite characters and create magical stories, which makes this a cool addition to a collection of Frozen merchandise. As a story-telling app, however, Frozen Story Theater has some great aspects as well as some weak areas. Kids will love recording their own voices and watching their stories again and again, and there's a great parent's guide to help make storytelling a truly meaningful learning experience. However, the app's capabilities are limited. Story Play only partially covers important story elements: Character and setting are crucial, but surprise and prop are not exactly central elements of telling a story. Also, once kids choose a scene, characters, and so on and start recording, the only manipulations available are moving things around the screen and making them bigger and smaller. They can't, for example, change scenes or make characters or props enter or exit, which limits possibilities. Ultimately, Frozen Story Theater is a nice start to simple storytelling, especially for Frozen fans.

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.
