Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (1 ):

This delightful storytelling tool offers kids a fun, creative learning experience. Preschoolers can practice "writing" by completing the stories, and they'll get to be creative and play with fun props while they do it. The instructional video is excellent, and written instructions are included in the parent section. Verbal cues prompt and remind kids what to do. The number of props and options extend the play, too. The youngest story-makers may start by changing the characters' facial expressions and moving them around a bit while they tell the story. As they grow and get more comfortable, they can add more characters, more than a dozen props, and music to the scenes.

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.
