IT'S A SMALL WORLD is like bringing the beloved Disney amusement park ride right into your mobile device. It shows and sings about so much sweetness and light around the globe that it's hard not to feel happy while watching the faces of children and animals and listening to the well-known song. The interactivity keeps kids engaged and lets them participate in the scenes by doing things like building a snowman or releasing a goldfish into a pond from a bowl. The images also may help young kids learn about different countries around the world and their cultural traditions, dress, animals, and geography in a very simple way; although, that educational component could have been even more effective if the app had included the names of the various countries so parents could have identified them for the child as they "traveled" to each one. Overall, a delightful experience for parents and kids alike.

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.
