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.

What’s It About?
MOJI MULTI is a multiplication practice app where kids fill in multiplication grids to reveal a hidden image and animation. Kids are given groups of six numbered tiles that they have to place in the correct location on the grid, much like reading a map. For example, the number 3 would go at the intersection of row 3 and column 1 (or vice versa). The tiles are replenished until the grid is complete. Kids then see the full image and watch a short animation to go with it. If kids try to put a tile in the wrong spot, it slides back with the rest of the unplaced tiles. There are 12 grid puzzles, four each of 7x7, 10x10, and 13x13 (these involve multiplication of numbers from 3-13).
Is It Any Good?
There are plenty of ways to practice math facts -- and while this is a fine choice, it also doesn't shine. One of the things that make Moji Multi unique is that it drills multiplication facts in the reverse of many other methods. That is, instead of being asked, "What is 3 x 7?" kids have to determine the factors of 21. This isn't the most direct approach to memorizing the tables, but it's helpful for kids to be able to calculate in both directions. Beyond that, however, Moji Multi isn't particularly fun or engaging. Dragging tiles over and over into a grid feels tedious after a while, and there's little motivation midway through to keep on going. The end images are boring, especially for the target age. Without any instruction or help, it also isn't all that useful for learning the tables in the first place. Moji Multi is a free app, which means it's certainly worth taking a look to see if it fits your kid's needs, but there are other options that most kids will be more motivated to play.
