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.

Fun and Entertaining

This game provides kids adventure and excitement. There are things to work toward like earning characters, rings, and red stars, keeping kids engaged. One warning: BE SURE TO TURN OFF THE IN-APP PURCHASE SETTING IN ITUNES. My kids who can't read accidentally purchased about $100USD worth in goods because they didn't understand what was happening. Downloading apps is password protected on their devices just not in-app purchases (I didn't know this was even a possibility for them to achieve until they did). This was disappointing, that the app preys on kids knowing they randomly click throughout an app and could easily make purchases if the settings weren't right.

Too much consumerism
