Is It Any Good?

There's definitely something cool about making videos of your friends alongside a ferocious dinosaur, but more ways to interact and learn would make this a great experience. Monster Park - AR Dino World has the wow factor of bringing dinosaurs to life and creating a way for us to take pictures and videos with them. For some users, that's enough. But others will ask, now what? There are no dinosaur facts to learn, and the dinosaurs don't interact with the environment. Since you can only place one on the screen at a time, they just sort of wander aimlessly with nothing to do. They're gorgeous to look at, though, and dinosaur fans will be thrilled to share the lens with their favorite creatures through the use of AR, especially as the app allows you to adjust lighting for the perfect shot. It just might be more fun if you could feed them or see them interact with others, and it's important to note that, though it's in the Education category, kids are unlikely to learn much about dinosaurs from the app.

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.
