On the surface, this music-creation app is a charming, fun way to record your own songs and experiment with sound, and digging a little deeper shows that there's even more to enjoy. There's a lot to learn about music here: This app lets you play around with cute characters, but it's also chock-full of great information about different kinds of musical scales and their origins. Beyond that, it's endlessly fun to toggle sounds on and off and to drag the characters's heads to open their mouths wide to sing. While The Tune Zoo isn't a comprehensive way to learn about music, it's a terrific, approachable way for kids to create their own tunes with only a few simple on-screen tools.

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.
