My favourite app for young children

This a gorgeous app - the story pack is better value. Beautifully animated story with interaction. My four year old continues to return to this over and over. Nice story with sibling relationship, educational without being obvious and sweet games/interaction. If only there were more apps like this!

Is It Any Good?

INTO THE SNOW: A STELLA AND SAM ADVENTURE is a delightful little app. Stella and Sam model curiosity, creativity, and a loving and happy sibling relationship. Their enthusiasm exploring the snow is contagious, the animations are great, and the French version sounds very natural. The games move at your own pace, and you can replay them with different items and pictures popping up. We're just left wanting more, especially for the price. If you're already a Stella and Sam devotee, the story pack is a better bargain.

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.
