For kids who want to try creating animation, PIXEL'D could be the perfect place to start, although the difficulty level and social sharing will require parents to be more involved with younger kids' play. Many of the Disney characters featured on the app are geared toward younger kids, but parents will need to help those kids find tutorials and set appropriate settings for social sharing and in-app purchases.

Older kids and kids who are advanced in digital art will find lots of creative options and social sharing capabilities here. It may take a while to get used to the look of large pixel-style drawing on PIXEL'D, but kids can alter the size of the canvas to make it look less "pixelated." The little "pop" noise that kids hear as they draw across the screen adds to this app's fun vibe, where the art creation can be as silly or serious as kids want it to be.

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.
