Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

Olaf is his endearing, silly self in this adventure, which is totally delightful, but the game itself is a bit hard for the youngest Frozen fans, which may be a disappointment to them. In-app purchases in an already paid game also are rather frustrating, for both parents and kids, even with some items offered for free. Kids have to stop playing and get a parent's assistance to play the springtime section of the game, which includes activities that are more entertaining and varied than the winter scenes. At review time, summer is shown in-app but is not yet available for purchase, further adding to the frustration. Parents will have to weigh the fun against the multiple frustrations to determine if Olaf's Adventures is right for their kids.

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.
