A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Kids can learn the basics of guided breathing and visualization, but won't necessarily be encouraged by the experience to make it a part of their daily lives.
Ease of Play
The app doesn't always recognize button presses, especially when you're trying to exit a meditation.
Products & Purchases
This app is the extension of a real-world meditation studio in New York City. Users can book appointments via the app by creating a login. No parent gates.
Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
For kids who are already interested in breathing and meditation, this may provide a next-level experience from kid-focused apps, but it's not a great option for kids just getting started. Inscape: Guided Meditation is clearly aimed at adults and adult-related stressors and concerns. It's not the clearest navigation, either, and tweens could easily be confused and overwhelmed at the difference between all of the many options. While teens may get something out of this collection, it's just not the best option for younger ones.
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.
