Is It Any Good?

Monkey Preschool Fix-It's learning content is relevant and age appropriate with numbers, shapes, puzzles, letters, colors, and patterns. However, in covering so much ground there isn't much depth to how kids explore these concepts. Kids might be better off playing multiple games to explore one concept but in different ways. Also, because Monkey Preschool Fix-It doesn't give kids a way to choose games, they can’t focus on any particular concept.

Although kids will love helping the monkey solve his fix-it problems, the games are sensory overkill and may be overstimulating for some. Frantic transitions, fast-moving backgrounds, too many monkey noises and flips, and a shouting narrator aren't necessary to capture kids' attention. In fact, kids are probably better off without all that stimulation. Overall, Monkey Preschool Fix-It is a cute and engaging game, but the learning content is superficial.

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.
