Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

This self-guided space-exploration adventure has a good variety of information and some cool ways to interact. Especially for kids who are intrigued by everything space-related, it's a fun way to feel involved. Recording your own countdown to blast off or taking a picture of a friend to bring with you on your journey are some highlights. Though there's a decent mix of activities and ways to learn, much of the text is not entirely kid-friendly. For instance, there are often big words that aren't explained fully (such as "prevail" and "propulsion"). Also, the coverage tends to be on the lightly superficial side -- nothing delves too deeply into any particular topic. In terms of interactivity, one screen invites kids to put the astronaut in bed, but it's not clear how to get the pajamas on or unzip the sleeping bag. Yet, overall, there are enough fun ways to interact that kids should easily find it satisfying. And if parents help out with the text, kids will get even more out of their experience.

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.
