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

Ease of Play

Drag and drop robot parts together, touch levers and buttons to make the robot use the machinery, and tap an arrow to go to the next scene. 

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff
Language
Consumerism

The Sago Mini characters are a part of a commercial franchise, and small icon advertising other apps is visible.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Sago Mini Robot Party is an easy-to-use experience that lets kids choose parts for a cute robot and make it do various activities. The app is visually similar to the other Sago Mini apps, though the usual characters aren't featured. Instead, kids make choices, explore, and learn some basic cause and effect as they make the robot frost cupcakes, bang on instruments, and pop balloons.

What's it about?

SAGO MINI ROBOT PARTY is a tap-and-drag experience that lets kids practice fine motor skills while also playing with robots. Kids start by choosing each part of their robot, from the arms and legs to their head and chest covering. Then, they give their robot power by spinning a wheel that grows an electric charge. After their design is complete and alive, kids click from screen to screen to interact with different party scenes. First, they design cupcakes, and then the robot can play a variety of musical instruments with the different parts of its body. There's also a piñata screen, where kids use their robot to hit the hanging shape and release candy and confetti. The last screen allows users to take a picture of their robot before starting the process again, and kids get a new robot part each time they play.

Is it any good?

Kids can exercise some creativity and create some cause and effect as they play through each fun activity. Younger kids may especially find the process of creating and playing with the virtual robot enticing, especially as every part of nearly every scene is interactive. Though there aren't endless possibilities and the activities are the same each time, preschoolers will like the combination of predictable elements and little surprises as they take a robot through each screen. If kids are really paying attention, they'll also see that each robot reacts differently to each element, but parents can make the most of this feature by naming the apparent feelings and helping kids connect the dots. Little tweaks -- such as the robot being able to grab and eat the food -- would make it even more intuitive and fun, but overall, it's a silly set of tasks that most kids will love.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about a stopping point and using devices in balance with other activities. Parents can tell kids how many robots they're allowed to make before they take the fun offline and make a robot from repurposed items around the house.

  • Talk about how the robot is feeling during different parts of the game. Does the robot like when balloons pop? How does it feel when you change scenes or squish a cupcake?

  • Discuss how you celebrate things as a family. Do your parties look the same as the robot party? Do families use things besides music and piñatas for entertainment? What other foods do families eat when celebrating?
