Is It Any Good?

Fans of TV show will likely love this very simple app, while other kids may find it too simple. The adorable characters, beautiful scenes, and engaging music may be enough to hold the attention of preschoolers new to apps who are just learning the ropes and who enjoy a game that includes TV characters that they recognize. As with the movie and show, it also showcases teamwork, positivity, and using everyone's individual talent to help out. However, for kids who have played games with more complexity or who aren't familiar with the show, this app may not have the variation or challenge to keep them engaged. There are few verbal instructions, so kids must rely on visual prompts. But, again, the game is so simple the visual prompts are all that's needed.

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.
