A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Ease of Play
Very intuitive play. Younger kids might have trouble typing the words, but misspellings aren't important to this game and parents can always be in charge of entering the words that kids come up with.
The app itself doesn't present any iffy language, but players are free to input whatever words they'd like.

Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
This digital version of the classic is brilliantly executed in a clear, intuitive format. Parents and kids have more variety than the traditional Mad Libs, with choices like "silly word" and "animal" along with the usual "plural noun" and "adverb." This paid app also has a "hints" button, which offers up multiple choices for each selection -- great for young kids still grappling with the parts of speech. Do make sure to set expectations about what, if anything, kids can buy.
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.
