Is It Any Good?

The drawing tools are simple -- white background, nine color choices, and three brushstrokes -- but adequate for kids to draw for three minutes. The sound quality of the recording is good, even for soft-talking kids, but it does pick up background noise as well. The prompts range from thoughtful (What makes you sad?) to familiar (Who is in your family?) to funny (What is something stinky?) and will get kids thinking, drawing, and talking. The blank screen allows for endless options for expression. To share the movies, parents will have to enable YouTube access, as the three-minute movies are too big to email from the camera roll.

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.
