Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

With plenty of activities, kids will likely be entertained for a while, but the app lacks a cohesive educational experience. The Bugs I: Insects? certainly makes the insects relatable to kids, giving them little personalities that kids can understand. Unfortunately, younger kids have no way of knowing that a dancer bee doesn't actually wear a tutu, or that ant larvae don't go to sleep with pacifiers. For older kids, there's some interesting information, but sometimes activities rely on facts and definitions that kids haven't yet received. The activities are hit or miss, both in terms of education and fun, so it might be best for kids who are insect enthusiasts or who need help overcoming a fear of bugs.

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.
