With a cute dog, darling backyard friends, and some gentle learning tossed in, Monty is likely to be a hit with the preschool and kindergarten set. Kids can't decide which game to play in Monty's Backyard Adventure as they just stream in a random order, but that's appropriate for this age as little ones often get stuck when asked to make a game choice. The games are simple and easy enough for most kids in the age bracket, although it would be helpful if parents had some control over the skill progression. Some of the games, specifically the cloud-counting activity, could use more correction so that kids understand that they have made an incorrect choice and why. But even so, Monty's Backyard Adventure is appealing. It's hard to resist playing with a fun-loving pup, and being able to choose how to decorate the backyard will be a great reward for many kids in the target age.

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.
