Is It Any Good?

TODDLER WORLD offers some good basic skills work, such as names of shapes, colors, transportation vehicles, and the alphabet. For many toddlers, however, some of these games -- such as the matching game or the tracing game -- could be a stretch of attention, skill, and dexterity. Those particular games may be better suited to young preschoolers.

Even more concerning, though, is the lack of constructive feedback in the app. When kids choose an incorrect color, for example, they don't hear the name for the color the selected, and they aren't reminded which color they are looking for. In addition, the tracing game is not accurate enough to be very useful. To get the most out of the app, parents will need to offer a lot of support during gameplay.

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.
