SAGO MINI MONSTERS is pure creative fun. With just five colors and a blank slate, kids aren't overwhelmed with choices or limits. They can just create. If they don't like what they've drawn, they can shake the device to get a clean monster slate, but a last-step undo button would be a nice addition. Once the monster comes to life and gets eyes, teeth, and horns, it becomes delightfully animated, responding to the food its presented. Kids will get a kick out of teasing the monster with the food to see its response. Kids can add unlimited accessories to their monster, which can get a bit busy-looking, but they don't have to add every accessory presented. They can fling some off the screen to skip them. Accessories aren't scalable, so kids can't make the hat bigger or a button smaller, which would be nice uncomplicated additions, as well. There's not too much content to occupy kids for long periods, but it's great for a few minutes of creative fun.

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.
