A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Ease of Play
This game begins with lots of written (no audio) instructions, but some of the games can still be confusing at times.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that iCarly: iSock it to 'em will be fun for iCarly television show fans who understand the silly humor show does so well. Based on the storyline that there's a sock telethon your tween helps the iCarly team host, there's all sorts of sock mania going on here: sock juggling, climbing, washing, whopping, and more. Many levels of play. Nothing intentionally educational here. An HD version is also available for the iPad.
Is It Any Good?
ICARLY: ISOCK IT TO 'EM is simple, silly fun for iCarly fans. But the arcade-style games are sometimes repetitive, even with different themes on different levels. And there's no getting around the repetition. You have to complete one level before the app allows you to move onto the next. Expect funny situations with familiar characters and not much more, and your iCarly fan will enjoy this app.
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.
