Wonderfully whimsical graphics do a great job of hiding basic shapes in recognizable ways as well as some surprising ones. Shapes can be turned around in all directions and sometimes stretched out until they look quite different from the typical prototype. This gives kids a nice challenge and helps them see shapes in a variety of formats. PrestoBingo Shapes has a number of supports, including displaying the target shape prominently at the bottom of the screen and an audio track that clearly names the shape. A counter helps kids keep track of how many shapes they've found. However, there are also some supports that are missing. Sometimes the narrator provides some encouragement and says how many shapes are left to find, but other times the hints are more generic: "There are still more shapes to find." And for kids who really just can't find any more shapes, there's never a way to get a hint about where to look. Even parents might get stumped with some of the puzzles! Each puzzle has a different number of shapes to find, which might confuse some kids. Once kids memorize where the shapes are in the 16 different puzzles, they may want to keep playing to reinforce the concept (and little kids like repetition!), or they may just lose interest. Nonetheless, PrestoBingo Shapes could be a fun challenge, even if it's short-lived.

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.
