These number-themed games are simple but have enough variety to avoid feeling overly repetitive. The Hey Duggee characters are sweet and aesthetically pleasing guides to playing with numbers. Often with early number apps, kids end up doing essentially the same action over and over again, and while repetition in apps for little kids is helpful, it's even better to have a variety of approaches around the same concepts. Hey Duggee: The Counting Badge does have a finite number of activity types -- nine to be exact -- but, in small doses, play isn't tedious. Games are nicely kid-friendly with no penalties for wrong answers (kids just keep trying until they pick the right choice) and clear instructions for how to play. There's some degree of leveling, but there aren't drastic differences between the "easiest" level and the most difficult. This makes the target age range, or counting ability, pretty narrow: Kids need to be in the sweet spot of having some basic knowledge of numbers without being expert counters for this app to be relevant. If that's where your kids are, Hey Duggee: The Counting Badge is a fun way to help them gain number confidence.

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.
