SUPER WHY PAINT! has some good points: The features work as expected, and there is some room for creative expression. However, the lack of a free-draw option will frustrate older kids, especially since some areas of each picture are tied together by color (e.g. Princess Pea's dress trim and the color of her cat's nose fill to the same color). While Super WHY! fans will enjoy decorating their favorites, and there are plenty of coloring pages available, there are better coloring apps on the market -- especially for the iPad.

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.
