Great app for kids and moms too!

My 5 & 7 year old kids LOVE this game. Whenever I walk into the room and they are huddled together with the itouch, laughing and playing, I know it is Mix'Em! I They love that it is fun, and I love that it is educational. With this game I am not worried about my kids seeing or hearing any inappropriate. Worth every penny!

Great game for your little ones!

It's a great game. Very simple, yet keeps the kids interested! My 4 and 7 year old boys love to play this game!

MIX'EM has four sections that all use the same set of characters. The Mix'Em section allows you to dress a woman or a man in five outfits each -- headgear, torso, and legs -- plus change the background and play character-based sound effects. Connect'Em presents three icons, and the player must choose the correct character (e.g., handcuffs, a police cruiser, and a robber match the police officer). Match'Em is a standard memory game using the characters and icons. Spell'Em shows the names of the characters, reads them out loud, and then pronounces each letter while highlighting the letter.

The graphics and sound effects are nicely done, and children will enjoy playing with the games. However, Spell'Em is a bit weak -- there are only 10 words, and it's not really clear what age level this would work for. Overall, Mix'Em is a decent entry in the mix-and-match genre but doesn't necessarily introduce anything spectacular.

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.
