ROBOTS FOR IPAD takes the complex topic of robotics and packages in an interactive, fun way. Some of the information (especially the updated news and articles) is decidedly for teens or adults who lean toward wanting to know the high-minded engineering behind the images of the smiling, helpful robots. Thus, it might make the information more accessible if they included a section (or companion app) especially for kids. Still, just the photos and videos alone will help kids start to explore the world of robots that could pique a lifelong interest.

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.
