GIRAFFE'S MATCHING ZOO DELUXE couldn't be easier to play. After the "here we go!" kids will be up and running. The animal noises bring on the silliness, yet are recognizable enough for the animals that do make noises -- no worries that they took liberties with the beeping starfish. It's worth paying a buck for the upgrade with extra levels and the "fun" button. After every two matches something sillier than the animal noises happens. And if you tap the "fun" button extra fast, even more cars/monkeys/etc. fly by or the sound effects get faster and faster. Kids will just enjoy the silliness and forget their memories are being tested, and they probably won't even look to see if they have a high score at the end of each game.

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.
