Is It Any Good?

TICKETY TOC: CARD MAKER TIME! is easy to use. Kids have a lot of options to add to the limited space on each card, so the finished product can get a bit busy. The app stresses process over product, but any aunt or grandparent who receives an emailed card will be delighted with it. The addressing and mailing process isn't representative of what's required by the postal service, so parents may want to walk kids through actually mailing a letter or card and the details needed on an envelope. It'd be nice to have more custom options, such as drawing your own pictures to include on the card. Still, kids will have lots of mess-free fun creating and emailing cards.

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.
