A lot or a little?

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

Educational Value

Kids can learn how to be an "upstander" and a positive member of a community as they zoom through the app and find ways for Jack to help his animal friends. Though the experience is mostly passive, kids can create narratives around Jack's adventures, and parents can help them apply what they observe in the app to real life. By talking with parents as they play Sago Mini Superhero, kids can learn more about how they can help people at school and at home.

Ease of Play

It's super simple for little ones to tap and drag to move Jack the rabbit through his town. 

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff

Section that offers opportunities to buy other Sago Sago apps, but parents can turn off access in the settings. The Sago Mini characters are a part of a commercial franchise.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Sago Mini Superhero is a free-play and exploration app for preschoolers. There are no instructions or rules: Just tap and drag to fly Jack the rabbit around his town where he helps out other animals and unlocks surprising superpowers. Tap the glowing yellow dots to trigger animations and interactive features. One interaction involves a loud belch and then laughter, and another has the superhero spray-painting on a billboard. The easy-to-read privacy policy details the kinds of information collected and shared.

What's it about?

In SAGO MINI SUPERHERO, kids can tap Jack the rabbit's house to bring him outside in his jaunty superhero cape. Then, kids can tap and drag to guide Jack around the city, where he encounters animals large and small. Each animal has a problem that needs to be solved, and Jack helps them in various ways: He gives ice cream to an upset octopus, helps friends share a cake, and returns a baby bird to its nest. Jack can also pilot a carrot-shaped helicopter around the town. Yellow dots indicate spots where kids can tap to trigger animations; there are more than 30, and the animations and interactions repeat as many times as kids care to tap them.

Is it any good?

As in other Sago Sago apps, this is a sweet, safe, and very user-friendly app for little ones, but its limited interactivity and repetition don't encourage replaying. Perhaps the best thing about it is what an ordinary superhero Jack is: He shares and helps instead of fighting or defeating the giant animals. The positive message about what it means to be super is great for kids, but it's slightly conflicted when Jack helps another character add graffiti to a billboard, which some parents won't appreciate. Also, since the only interactivity revolves around making Jack fly and tapping to watch animations, some kids might not return after they play through all the hot spots.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about what Jack does to help the other animals. What makes him a hero? How can kids be heroes with their own friends?

  • Talk about how important it is to do the things that Jack does, such as sharing, helping, and keeping other people safe.
