I love Tiny Bop's Body app much better-try it!

It's an interesting app, but just ok, however the body app that Tiny Bop produces is totally worth it! You can get a bundle and if you don't mind that sort of thing your youngsters will enjoy the different apps. Gotta check out the body one, though!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

The message -- there are many ways to make a home -- is lovely. The cultural education that kids will get is important. The fun and surprising interactive features are engaging. But it's the attention to detail that really amazes. Subtle background noises hint as to what's going on around each home, from sirens and honking cars in the Brooklyn brownstone to chirping crickets and singing birds in the Guatemalan adobe home. The interactive features seem almost endless -- kids can wash dishes, read books, play with toys, sew clothes, prepare food, play records, use the bathroom, and more. It's not perfect, though: Controls can be a bit tricky, especially for little hands, so kids may miss some of the fun and learning.

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.
