All Aboard the Brain Train!

My two sons (ages 4 and 6) LOVED this game. I found it very age appropriate and educational. It contained many interesting facts about the brain presented in a fun way, with very catchy songs. My kids did not care about the educational aspects - they had a great time! And days later they still remember a butterfly has taste buds on its feet... :)

This title has:

Educational value
Great messages
Great role models

Is It Any Good?

MORPHONIX: BRAIN TRAIN teaches kids about animal and insect brains, but acts like a mini-game. It does not stand on its own. It introduces neuroscience to young kids, but it might be more useful once it is a part of the full app, Every Body Has a Brain, when it is eventually released.

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.
