You Won't Be Able to Cancel After Free 30 Day Trial

We had this for the 30 day free trial and couldn't cancel, I'm on my third month of trying to cancel this app and fighting with this company to shut off my service. Don't download this APP!

So cool!

Parents need to know that Sago Mini Friends lets very young app users explore and play some of the same things they play with friends. There's no wrong way to play, but kids do need enough fine motor control to be able to move the toys into approximately the target location. Kids move from house to house, ringing the doorbell and going inside to play with a friend. All the homes featured are traditional single-family homes.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (3 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Sago Mini, once again, creates a sweet, fun experience for toddlers and young preschoolers that builds on their interests and experiences and lets them explore technology and cause and effect while being delighted. The number of experiences will keep kids entertained and fascinated for quite some time, and the game is perfectly designed for side-by-side play, allowing multiple fingers to touch and play at once.

The parent section includes instructions for ensuring the favorite activities -- blowing up balloons and playing dress-up -- are available if parents use a specific finger gesture. Play continues until kids complete the task or don't touch the device for a few seconds, and then kids can leave that house and move to another.

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.
