Great play-along music app for little ones; upgrade is fab.

MUSIC SPARKLES -- ALL IN ONE MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS COLLECTION HD is a great app for creative exploration of musical instruments. The tunings of the instruments are compatible with the pre-recorded playback loops, so kids are never out of key or sound "off." But the best thing about Music Sparkles is that the instruments play like the real thing. The free version is limited but kids can still jam with it.

The musical journey really unfolds with the in-app upgrade, which is like walking into a virtual music shop with interactive acoustic and electric guitars and pianos, pipe organ, accordion, harmonica, recorder, harp, sax, panpipes, and violin. The violin interface is disappointing because it's inauthentic and tricky to play, and it'd be great if the app had more world instruments. Still, Music Sparkles shines on and provides a jam-packed, true-to-life musical experience, making it a fantastic choice for budding musicians of all ages and abilities.

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.
