There's a lot of cuteness and some basic facts in this early education app, but parents might not be over the moon. For $4.99, it seems like there should be more to learn and do on Solar Family Planets Stars Games Solar System Kids. Still, this app is a colorful, interactive way for preschool- and kindergarten-age kids to learn the basics about the solar system. Within a couple stories, there also are embedded messages about inclusion, such as when Halley's Comet wants to play and some of the planets aren't keen at first. However, the mix of science learning with social-emotional lessons doesn't work all that well here, since so much of the information is fact-based. Overall, it may be a good starting point to launch into the topic of planets, but kids may need parent involvement to really bring the lessons home.

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.
