Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1):

Animal-loving kids can create their own pet-centered stories as they explore the different shops and environments, but clearer navigation and more diversity would make it better. My Town: Pets is cute fun: Kids who like less goal-oriented app play will gravitate to this experience, where they can imagine all sorts of stories and scenarios. However, gameplay isn't as easy as it could be, especially for the target age. Unless kids have played similar apps, they may not know how to move the pets around. It would also be nice to see more diversity in characters. Overall, My Town: Pets could be better, but some kids will really enjoy the whimsical environment.

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.
