Entertaining and simple puzzles that promote passive thought around shapes and attributes are drowned out by distracting banner and pop-up advertisements. Line Puzzle: String Art is straightforward and simple to navigate. Kids can enjoy the app on their own and they can access hints if they get stuck. The leveling-up feature keeps the game interesting and makes it engaging for players of all ages. Families may find this to be a useful platform to ground discussions about shapes and their attributes. Since kids have to recreate a suggested shape using lines and points on a digital board, there'll be plenty of opportunities to talk about symmetry, sides, corners, angles, and compare shapes. Consistent conversation with kids while playing increases the educational value of the app. Although the app is promising, the free version is peppered with ads, making it hard to enjoy. The ads are so frequent that it interrupts the overall experience and makes it hard to get into a playing groove. Though developers need to make money, when the balance between gameplay and ads is so out of whack, it makes it a negative experience for kids, so if the puzzles are appealing, it's worth it to spring for the ad-free purchase.

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.
