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.

A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

All you need to do is hold your iPhone. The app also works well on the iPad, which allows you to hide your face behind it as you talk, and the Sock Puppet moves its mouth as if it is talking for you.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that iSock - The Talking Sock will only work if your iDevice has a microphone, phone receiver, or some other way to pick up sound. This is a prop app, where the sock puppet's mouth mimics your speech as you talk. It can help you to create silliness for young children or let them have fun being creative.

Is it any good?

The world of mobile apps is home to many very silly, unnecessary-but-strangely-fun ideas, and iSOCK - THE TALKING SOCK is one of them. You can choose from one of four sock puppets, who will appear on the screen of your iDevice; look left and right as you tilt the device; and lip-synch to whatever you say. Ostensibly, you can hide behind something, hold up your iPhone, and perform a puppet show. It is even better on the iPad, where you can hide behind it. You can also play music into the mic and watch the sock puppet sing along. Or hold the iSock in front of a television and watch the puppet perform whatever show is on. Uses are limited only by your imagination. This is a great prop to help make young children giggle.
