Though it's a simple experience kids won't likely beg to play, this memory-builder is a solid, free way to practice recall. As we live in a world full of distractions, it's important to expand your short-term memory skills in order to quickly learn new information. This isn't an easy skill for many, even adults. MarcoPolo Recall gives kids and even adults a fun way to practice this skill through repetition, in a multisensory way that starts simply and gets more complex over time as the player's skill improves. Want a different experience? Try holding the device horizontally instead of vertically when playing and see which orientation is easier or more challenging. While it's not a new way to practice memory skills, it's accessible and free, and it could provide a bit of memory-stretching fun for a few minutes at a time.

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.
