Animated blob-like hosts Izzy and Mac are cute, gentle guides through a fun world of exploration and experimentation. Kids are bound to get a kick out of seeing their faces in a kaleidoscope view, hearing their voices roar like a dinosaur caught in a tin can, or learning how to make shadow animals with their hands. Many of the activities feel as though they're repeating throughout the game (the puzzle in the shadows pack isn't that much different from the puzzle in the exploration tools). The drawing activities all are similar enough to be familiar to kids, but each does offer something new. All kids, but especially younger ones, will benefit from some help and guidance from a grown-up, especially at first. The offline activity extensions are perfect ways to get kids and parents exploring together.

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.
