For parents who are looking for an alternative to screen time to keep their kids occupied and learning at home, in the car, or when traveling long distances, this app is simple, old-fashioned fun with a modern tech twist. The games all include a Sesame Street character's endorsement ("Hey, buddy! Ernie has a game for you!"). Kids can learn important skills as they have lots of fun with a mom, dad, or caregiver.

The lists of instructions for the offline games are organized in a very pragmatic way, according to where parents may find themselves with kids in need of something fun to fill time or of bringing some fun to a mundane activity -- bath time, car rides, dinner prep time, and more. The items needed to play games are typical around-the-house stuff, such as cups, balls, stuffed animals, or a bag. SESAME STREET FAMILY PLAY offers lots of ideas for playing real-world games and discovering new ways to interact with your kids to promote learning and banish everyday doldrums anywhere, anytime.

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.
