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.

age 9+

Constant nagging, packed with ads.

My 4 year old downloaded this app and I don't understand it at all. It constantly pops up notifications and then bombards my child with ads and in-app purchase requests. I heard some fart noises coming from his phone and looked over to see a cartoon cat sitting on a toilet. I disabled it on his kids mode app because an app made geared toward children should be teaching them something constructive and the only things I've seen this app teach are bathroom humor and conspicuous consumption, and it should definitely be ad-free.

Too much consumerism

Nagging App encourages my child to constantly pick up device

Cute graphics, simple interface, but before I turned off the default notifications, this app was constantly nagging my child to attend to the cat. And even after I turned off the notifications, there were still tasks my child felt obligated to do. Perhaps this is just not my type of app for a child (that to do well in it, you need increased attention).
