Cute but muddled hero's journey could entertain or confuse.

Our review:
Parents say: (2):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Though cute and surreal, this combination of animation and interactivity has potential but lacks focus. Mash&Co has the makings of a great experience for kids. It has cute characters, a hero's journey, and even some games. But with a story that is told entirely through pantomime and thought-bubble images, it sometimes feels a bit too abstract. While there are plenty of prompts to tell kids where to tap for the puzzles, it's still not always clear if there was a point or if the action was just there to make it interactive. Also, since there's limited free content, kids are prompted to buy the next installment when they complete the current one, which can create some pressure on parents. For the target age, the story feels a bit disjointed and sometimes potentially disturbing for sensitive kids, as Mash's parents visibly shrivel and he has to save them. Parents can try the app with kids before making a purchase.

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.
