True firefighter fans may miss having more fire-related activities, but this cute app is entertaining and silly. Little Fire Station - Fire Engine & Firefighters isn't terribly realistic -- hopefully you won't find a stuffed animal in your local firehouse's oven -- but it has just enough realism to make it work for little ones. Don't let the cuteness fool you, though, because some of the objects are tricky to find. There are a lot of cabinets to search though and five rooms. Young kids will likely get frustrated and/or need help now and again. In a sneaky move, the link to the in-app purchase area is "hidden" within the firehouse, too. There's enough pressure to buy without maneuvers like that. But, if you can ignore a few drawbacks, this is certainly a fun diversion for kids who love trucks, firefighters, and seek-and-find games.

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.
