Is It Any Good?

The game is an interactive and engaging way for kids to build geometry skills and spatial reasoning, using a digital version of a toy they might already love. Hints support learning without giving away the answer, encouraging kids to solve the puzzles on their own. Kids can easily view the levels they've completed, as well as the reward marbles they've collected. It's empowering for kids to freely explore and complete any puzzles they wish in any order, but the option to complete and unlock levels would provide a more structured learning experience. It also would be great to see some definitions of the different shapes and geometry concepts that kids use.

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.
