For parents who enjoyed these iconic puzzle games as kids in their own printed Highlights magazine, this app is a great way to share a former favorite activity of with kids! The illustrations are beautiful, just like in the magazines, and include a diverse range of themes. The puzzles aren't leveled by difficulty, and while some are easier it seems to complete than others, many are also a good challenge for adults, too. Make sure the kids are relying on their visual skills to look for the match, because it's simple to rely on just randomly tap on the screen and get lucky in finding a match. This is a fun, quick activity for kids to play at home or when traveling, but you'll definitely need to be aware of the billing cycle and make a decision on whether this app, at $3.99 per month (about $50/year), will be worth the price each month.

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.
