If kids are a fan of the Madagascar movies, they may like seeing their favorite characters some more here. At the same time, parents may like that the game includes some educational content. The game part is pretty simple: Kids slide a little slider on the bottom to navigate, or they can switch the setting to tilt the device. The slide is pretty straight, so even if kids don’t navigate at all, they will make it to the end, but just may miss some points.

As for the quiz at the end, it covers appropriate subjects like shapes, letters, and numbers. The shape questions are a little trickier -- some preschoolers may not have heard of a hexagon, and some of the shapes are hard to distinguish from one another (the rectangle doesn’t look that different than the square or oval from the circle, for example). Still, the app is a fun experience young fans of the movie will enjoy.

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.
