Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
This is one of those cool, every-kid-dreams-of-this ideas, but between ads and purchases without a parent gate, it's just not kid-friendly. Who wouldn't want to build their dream tree house? In Loud House: Ultimate Treehouse, kids have the chance to practice their design skills, but there's not a lot of room for creativity. It's a matter of waiting until characters ask for something and then providing it. There is some control over where things are placed, but that's about it. In the meantime, kids will do a lot of grinding to earn the coins to pay for whatever demands their characters issue next. The other thing that's missing is the flavor of the TV show. The characters are there, but they are too busy plotting their next purchase to do anything meaningful. Some kids will enjoy playing with characters from a favorite TV show, but there simply isn't a lot to grab onto here, and plenty of opportunities to spend.
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.
