Is It Any Good?

The scenes are full of sparkly, eye-catching objects, and navigating the magic carpet can be fun, but both game variation and math activities are limited. The symmetry puzzles increase in difficulty with each level completed, and kids can collect 50 prizes, one for each level. Kids aren't prompted to identify the shapes by name to reinforce what they've heard. If your goal is simply to introduce your kid to the names of some shapes and the concept of symmetry, this app may be a good way to do that, especially if he or she loves the show; those who don’t may not hang on for all 50 levels.

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.
