Is It Any Good?

Kids have lots of room to create and express themselves with this easy-to-use platform. It's a nice touch that other users' creations are not just to look at: Kids can also use them as starting points from which to adjust, edit, and customize according to their own liking. The tools themselves are generally user-friendly and easy to manipulate. It would be nice to see even just a few additional features, such as the ability to move a block that's already been placed, to draw on blocks, or to use a variety of block types. The destroy function may seem pointless to some but will be immensely satisfying for those kids who love to see things get blown up -- even if some of the tools are quite realistically violent-looking. The sharing options are nice for creating community and allowing kids to show off what they've done. However, kids who are old enough to be using the app are also old enough to easily pass through the parent gate, so parents may want to talk about whether or not kids can share creations and view other apps. Overall, it's a simple, easily accessible platform for creating some pretty cool things.

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.
