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.

What’s It About?
Kids choose addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, or mixed operations and a level: easy, medium, or hard. They then answer math problems and find the answers on a bingo grid. When they've correctly answered enough questions to get bingo, they win a pet or food for their pet. Between math games, kids can play with and care for their pets in the pet pen, a carnival-like park. If kids are stuck on a problem, they can tap the question mark to see the problem broken down using a math strategy -- such as 10 frames or number lines for addition and subtraction, as well as arrays and commutative and distributive properties for multiplication and division. Parents can view reports showing the percentage of problems kids answered correctly and their progress in each skill set.
Is It Any Good?
PET BINGO - BY DUCK DUCK MOOSE is not just fun and effective math practice for kids; parents also will appreciate the detailed progress reports and clear help with math strategies that may no longer be familiar to them. The app spans five grade levels and supports multiple users, making it a real bargain for families with more than one child. The easy level of addition starts with users adding single-digit numbers, and the activities advance to division of double digits into four digits. Kids also will enjoy the rewards of cute animals and pet supplies.
