Fantastic animation, but at the expense of the story.

Is It Any Good?

Jack and the Beanstalk 3D is a fresh take on a classic children's tale, with bells and whistles aplenty. And what it does, it does quite well. The animations are beautiful. The control given to users over how fast or slow those animations run is engaging. And the background music, from Richard M. Sherman (composer of "It's a Small World"), is charming. We only wish that the story itself was given a little more prominence and the learning potential of the app was better exploited.

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.
