Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
Many kids love to imagine themselves included in stories, and this app puts them front and center. Kids can star in the books, videos, and a dancing game on StoryBots - Learning Books, Videos and Games Starring Your Child!. Downloading the free app gives limited access to the "Biggest Pizza Ever" storybook, one video, and one game. But that's enough to get the kid-in-storybook concept and to see if your kid likes it enough to pay the $4.99/month subscription fee for all content. The educational content is pretty basic, so the higher end of the 3-to-8 age range may be a stretch for many kids. But for preschoolers and kindergarten-age kids, its has a lot of educational content that will be just right for their age -- and more than just right in fun and laughs.
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.
