Is It Any Good?

The novelty of playing with the counting toys is exciting for kids, but at almost $30 for three apps, it's a bit steep. The manipulatives are tricky to maneuver on the screen, too, not always registering correctly. The game is totally playable without the toys, though, and is actually easier that way, though kids miss out on holding the counters in their hands. The graphics are cute, with fun characters and whimsical, paper-craft style characters and settings, and the mission is adorable: delivering gifts to loved ones. But there's not much content. Once kids play the two adventures, each with five counting activities, that's it. They can replay each level, but the challenge doesn't change.

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.
