Is It Any Good?

This unique educational experience relies heavily on video, with less hands-on learning, but it offers a positive message about taking care of the planet. My Voyage struggles somewhat to be relatable for kids who have no Hawaiian cultural reference, teaching a lot of Hawaiian words and concepts in a short amount of time. It feels like it's geared toward kids who are already familiar with the general culture, but who don't know much about traditional arts and natural resources. The activities are appropriate and engaging, but sometimes feel contrived, such as cutting down a certain number plants by tapping on them in just the right spots. A couple of them -- the boat assembly and weaving activities -- are sometimes tricky in terms of dragging items to the exact right spot on the screen, so kids may get frustrated. Despite its flaws, it offers interesting history and culture alongside a very positive message.

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.
