On the surface, this sorting game seems overly simple, but as kids get into the higher levels, play gets more interesting. Kids might want to start at the first level to get acquainted with what they're supposed to do, and younger kids might need to stay in these lower levels, though they might tire of the repetition of dragging sounds to objects over and over again. Older kids should be able to jump into higher levels pretty quickly, and that's where things get more interesting. Often kids must use reasoning to think about what source makes a logical match to each sound. Most of these matches are clever, though a few are pretty ambiguous, which could get frustrating. It may also be frustrating that if kids make a wrong match, they have to start that round over again, though it does encourage kids to pay close attention. Though there's a little break every three levels, play may start to feel too repetitive. It would also be nice for kids to track their progress in a more tangible way. Overall, it's a solid use of a digital experience to help kids practice an essential skill.

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.
