Kids will enjoy the video and the challenging missions in Science Heroes: Digestive System for Kids. The colorful characters and animations are engaging, and the science content is presented at an age-appropriate level. Quizzes between game levels attempt to reinforce learning, but they are so staggered that kids may have a hard time recalling the information. On a positive note, feedback for incorrect answers is provided, so kids can learn from their mistakes.

Although the graphics are well done and the missions are fun and engaging, kids are probably not going to spend most of their time learning about the digestive system. Instead, they likely will focus on shooting at targets in hopes of advancing to the next level.

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.
