The fully unlocked features make this a very pricey choice for kids, and, even then, they may be distracted by an ad for other apps. Although kids can play a bit on the free version, they can't earn as many stars for the items they create, and the free tools are slower and messier to use than the premium kitchen tools. The graphics and voice-overs all are high quality, and kids have several choices for fruits, flavors, toppings, and decorations, and getting the recipe to use in the real kitchen is a great way to extend the fun. There may not be enough here to justify the cost for most kids, but aspiring chefs might find the app fun to explore and the kid-friendly recipes a sweet gem.

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.
