Love it!

Mindful Powers has been great for our active sensitive daughter. Just wish there were more stories included in the app.

Is It Any Good?

This is a great meditation tool specifically for kids who need help slowing down, focusing, and managing their emotions. The use of a youthful voice makes it easier for kids to connect to, and the practice of smoothing out the Flibbertigibbet requires kids to both slow down (it doesn't like quick motions) and pay attention. Because Mindful Powers is geared toward kids, the meditations are relevant with appropriate language, but they can become long-winded and lofty on occasion. The introduction, in particular, seems quite long and may be challenging for kids who are new to the practice of meditation. The progressive nature of the stories (each one must be unlocked by completing those before it) keeps things on track for more goal-oriented kids as opposed to just having a collection of meditations to pick and choose from right away. The app mentions plugging in while using the focus timer, and kids will need a reminder there to keep from draining device batteries. It's a cute meditative experience that will likely appeal to kids who are more naturally nurturing, but it's going to do best with some adult support to discuss and reinforce some of the concepts that arise.

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.
