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.

Frozen app

I actually love this game but my app has been frozen for over a week. I even changed to a new phone and it’s still frozen with an exclamation point over the ball. The problem besides that is that everything on the page is unclickable so I can’t get into settings or even find out why it’s frozen.

Alarming privacy policy

My kid was playing this enjoyably despite the quantity of ads until recently when a new privacy policy popped up specifying that players needed to be 15 yrs old to consent. This turned out to give permission to the app to harvest details about a number of Facebook contacts if logged in. Obviously we stopped using the app immediately. Part of a worrying trend where the not-so-hidden business model is to harvest personal data well beyond the scope of the app.
