Although the experience contains consumerism, kids will enjoy the variety of tutorials offered by this creative community and will find its easy-to-follow template and editing features a useful tool. Its categories represent a wide variety of interests. Kids who favor the arts will love the crafts, art, and photography guides. Kids who enjoy creativity in the kitchen will have fun exploring food and baking tutorials. There are even guides for kids who want to explore autos and tech. Although there's significant variety, families may find that not all categories are appropriate for kids or teens. The drinks category deals specifically with mixology, and some of the featured creators promote specific brands of alcoholic beverages. Most of the content promotes making drinks, and there is limited representation of consumption. There's heavy brand placement in some how-to videos and on the home feed. Some creators explicitly promote brands or products and include links to purchase. Some viewers may find this helpful, while others may find the experience too commercial.

Overall, Jumprope: How-to Videos is a fun, engaging, easy-to-use tool that will inspire kids to share their expertise or interests with others through procedural videos. Currently, most of the people posting content are adults, but some teens may be inspired to take learning off-screen and try some of the how-tos for themselves. In addition to exploring their creative side, kids are subtlety encouraged by the app to practice procedural writing, refine video and/or photo techniques, and practice using editing tools to create unique and personalized content. Creators looking for a fuss-free and professional-looking procedural video to export to websites, blogs, or social media will find this app extremely helpful.

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.
