Great sound, graphics, but few features = limited fun.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

With simple graphics, strong colors, and great sound quality, it's fun to make sounds, but the features are limited. Kids can certainly rock it as they furiously tap the screen for a drum solo or spin the disc pretending to be a DJ. They can experiment with the different sounds they get from each side of the triangle or the different lengths of the strings. But, kids can't combine or manipulate the instruments, they can't record, they can't follow along to a backbeat or change the song on the disc, and they can't compose their own music. With such a simple app, kids may quickly get bored of shaking the rattle or tapping the theremin. A few more features would add additional value -- educational and entertainment -- to Jam Toys.

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.
