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.

Community Reviews

age 7+

Great interactive tasks to help kids understand hidden rules of social and emotional situations.

This is so well constructed. My kids fall on the "average" spectrum of behavior, and I found this so beneficial. I love the game allows kids to see the outcomes and consequences of different behaviors and really helps them to learn to think about social situations from how someone else might experience it. Great, great, great.

My son didn't even want to play it, at all. In theory it is a good idea, but if it is no fun then it doesn't work.
