Monster Physics does a fantastic job of combining physics content with a highly engaging digital platform. Kids will have fun and feel empowered as they build their own contraptions and solve challenging missions. The missions are open-ended and require kids to use strong critical-thinking skills, but a tutorial and tips along the way help guide the learning process. Since kids can keep trying until they're successful, they learn important lessons about trial and error and perseverance.

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.
