Is It Any Good?

MINNIE BOW MAKER offers kids a chance to express creativity and show off their creations to friends and family. Though the bow-making options are limited, kids will have fun seeing their bows on the runway. Besides making bows, however, the app doesn't offer much else. The stories aren't really stories at all, but just a few lines of dialogue before each bow-making activity. The app is extremely easy to use, so it's a good fit for the target audience.

The app seems to present the characters in stereotypical gender roles: The characters are all females and are mainly concerned with what to wear and making things look pretty. Take a look at our article Tips for Battling Stereotypes for ideas about balancing messages.

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.
