Once your kid's rocket blasts off, there's so much to do on this visually stunning app that it feels like it might include infinity and beyond. Tap on any planet in Space by Tinybop and the app zooms in to show more detail. Swipe across the planet to see sections of the planet's internal layers. Explore surface scenes through swiping and tapping to find the interactive options, such as making astronaut footprints on the moon or hurling boulders into Uranus' rings. Beyond the option to view one-word or short-phrase vocabulary labels on the visuals, there's no audio information, so kids who can read (or have a parent read to them) will likely learn a lot more. The Space Handbook that parents and teachers can download from the Tinybop website has even more ways to learn (written facts, discussion questions, images, and sources) about everything introduced visually on the app.

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.
