Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (1 ):

Kids are free to have lots of fun as they make characters in silly costumes move and groove to the beat. Performances let kids add special effects, such as a smoke machine and bursts of fire for extra drama. Some performance features seem a little out of place -- such as fart noises, a poop costume, and throwing food -- and are likely there just to be silly, which kids probably won't mind. Though it's delightful to choreograph body movements, it may take some practice for kids to be able to really make their limbs, head, and body move in a purposeful and intentional way. One major disappointment is the narrow range of music available: It's all upbeat with the same number of beats per minute, but it would be nice to see more varied styles with different tempos. The developer does mention that additional music will come out in future updates, so be on the lookout for that.

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.
