Though the adventure elements and graphics are fun, the push for purchases and mixed messages in the content compromise its value for kids. The virtual forest is visually rich and beautiful, with lush greens, rolling hills, bubbling brooks, and cute animals. And, it's fun to drag the animals around as they romp through the forest to explore. But, that's where the appeal ends. Beyond looking around the forest, interaction possibilities are quite limited. Most of the game involves following direct orders from the bear and leaves no room for autonomous play. The games, like your classic matching memory game, are basic and uninspired, and at least one involves teaching some prankster animals "a lesson" by throwing acorns at them. The overall organization is confusing, with a complicated system for cataloging the prize stickers. And, finally, the game is rife with appeals to make in-app purchases. There actually is enough content for kids to play the free version, but the constant pushes for purchase really get in the way. Unless you've happened to find the Leo and Tig web series and your kids have become huge fans, the cool visuals probably don't outweigh the downsides.

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.
