A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Ease of Play
Kids (or parents) will need to visit the information/help section to be able to find all 10 snowflakes on each level, as they're very difficult to find.
Violence & Scariness
Marshmallow (the yeti) attacks Olaf with snowballs. Olaf is (bloodlessly) impaled on an icicle, and his head pops off frequently. Kids throw apples at a teasing Olaf.

Products & Purchases
Olaf and the entire Frozen line are heavily cross-marketed with toys and other products. Links to other apps are protected behind a "grown-ups only" screen lock. Other seasons can be unlocked with an in-app purchase.
Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
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.
