Is It Any Good?

There's something delightfully quirky that happens when you combine pieces from various masters into one cohesive design. Mixerpiece gives kids plenty of freedom to create, while also helping them look more closely at art they may have only glanced at in the past. Which way is Mona Lisa looking? What fruit represents the nose on Vertumnus, Giuseppe Arcimboldo's iconic work? It's also a lovely playground for kids who are feeling creative but not ready to start drawing in earnest yet. It has a few challenges ... occasional prompts appear in Italian in the English version, and sometimes the full artwork pops up while you're trying to adjust the size/location of your pieces. However these annoyances don't detract much from the end result: Mixerpiece is colorful, fun, and unique.

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.
