This creative app invites kids to explore their inner and outer lives through drawing, writing, speaking, GIFs, and more. By combining whimsical illustrations with hundreds of questions that are relevant to kids' everyday lives, Me: A Kid's Diary gives kids a place to really express themselves, sort of like a multimedia diary. One caveat: A few of the questions seem a bit too personal for kids to answer on a device that can be accessed by anyone, including people with whom kids may not want to share those answers. Questions like "This is my friend's secret" and "I dream about this" may give kids the idea that it's safe to put any and all information about their lives (and the lives of their friends) out there in digital form, so parents may want to mention to their kids that they don't have to answer all questions that appear. It's a great opportunity to let them know that what they want to share, and what they'd rather not answer on an app, is up to them. That said, Tinybop's description of Me as a place for kids "to tell their stories, express their identities and feelings, and to document the world around them" is most certainly accurate and encouraging in a world that needs kids who are both self-reflective and multimedia storytellers.

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.
