A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

Kids just need to jump. They also need to hold on tightly to your iPhone.

Violence & Scariness

Consumerism

This is a Sesame Street app, but there's no hard sell toward the show or any of its related merchandise.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Rosita's Jump Count features Sesame Street's Rosita and is meant to both inspire physical activity and teach counting from one to 100. Children are supposed to jump (or even jump rope) while holding an iPhone or iPod Touch, so parents will want to find a way to secure the device, or consider the possibility that their device might be dropped while using this app. Each jump is registered by the device's accelerometer, and Rosita counts the jump.

Is it any good?

While the mission behind ROSITA'S JUMP COUNT is laudable, its logic is questionable. An iPhone is a piece of delicate tech that costs hundreds of dollars. If you want to let your child jump around while holding it, by all means, download this app. Unfortunately, many children -- especially those in Sesame Street's demographic -- have been known to drop things.
