There are certainly less expensive options for preschoolers that would be just as fun and educational. Notwithstanding the price, PAW PATROL RESCUE RUN is fun and very positive, if a bit repetitive after you've played through the three scenes. Kids don't have to worry about messing up and losing a life or needing to start over. Mistakes are quickly remedied by the dog backing up and jumping again. The instructions are very clear and preschooler-friendly, and it's all high interest with dogs, trains, and hero adventures. There's nothing new to experience once you've played each of the three scenes (besides earning badges that may have been missed), so kids may bore of the app more quickly than parents think the price warrants.

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.
