Kids say (1 ):

Kids who have played previous My Little Pony games will likely enjoy the creative freedom to script their own stories, but the consumerism puts a damper on the creative fun. My Little Pony: Story Creator puts kids in control, which is a change of pace from the linear play some of the apps have shown in the past. The free-play mode, in particular, gives kids space to follow their own imaginations. It's still a limited animation experience, however, and older kids may continue to feel restricted. The characters have little movement and there are no ready-to-use sound-effects or animated props. The pop-up advertising is also an unfortunate choice: Even though they trigger a parent gate, they'll still leave kids requesting to buy more content. My Little Pony: Story Creator will appeal to young fans and give them a creative outlet. Older kids may be less impressed. Either way, parents should expect pressure to buy all the ponies and girls.

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.
