THE DIGITS: FRACTION BLAST is a great way to introduce kids to fraction concepts via a silly space adventure story with endearing characters. The "appisodes" feature three zany main characters -- one human, one alien, and one robot -- who form the space-traveling band the Digits. Their bad-guy nemesis, record label owner Doomfinger, is out to get them. Numerous challenges arise during the comedic drama that all somehow can be solved using fractions. As kids finish each segment of the show (about as long as most PBS educational shows), they earn a cool achievement icon.

A minor quibble: Some of the fights between our hero and Zoomfinger create some really loud (bordering on obnoxious) banter. If you can get past the noise, however, there's a lot to be learned here. The Digits: Fraction Blast approaches fraction concepts through visually memorable and repetitive ways.

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.
