Is It Any Good?

The loads of interactive ways that kids can explore people, animals, and places on Kids Planet Discovery are lots of fun, but a mixed bag in terms of content quality. Some content here just doesn't fit all that well and other parts of the app could use improvement, too. For example, the dress-up character game featuring traditional clothing is fun and sweet, but it would be nice for kids to be able to see and choose clothing for boy characters as well as girls (currently, there are only girls). Also, kids need to be able to read or have an adult read the instructions to them, and in-app purchases are interspersed throughout game choices. For those reasons, it's important for parents or teachers to be closely involved with younger kids who are using this app.

Still, whether you make the in-app purchases for full access or just peruse the free content, kids can learn a lot about other cultures and world geography from Kids Planet Discovery.

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.
