A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Kids can express their creativity, while also thinking about how their actions might impact someone else. In this case, does the customer like the design choices they are making?
Ease of Play
No tutorial, but kids who are encouraged to explore will have no trouble figuring out each of the tools.
Products & Purchases
Features hat shop with a cash register at the end. Connection is loose, however, and will likely be missed entirely by younger kids. The Sago Mini characters are a part of a commercial franchise.
Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
This simple preschool experience finds a nice balance between creative expression and age-appropriate tools. Sago Mini Hat Maker doesn't have a lot of options and tools to use, which makes it great for really little kids. Each station typically offers two to four options at a time, making it easier for young kids to make decisions, but leaving enough room for personal tastes to shine through. And what kid won't enjoy getting a selfie or a picture of mom and dad sporting their new design? There isn't a lot to do otherwise, however, so this is likely to be the biggest hit with kids who like designing things.
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.
