Is It Any Good?

The TRANSFORMERS DARK OF THE MOON MIX & MATCH BOOK takes the third installment of the Transformers movie franchise and turns it into an illustrated picture book for kids. But not just any picture book -- this app allows you to mix and match the illustrations, creating weird combinations of Autobots and Decepticons, and the sentence on the page also gets mixed up along with the picture. The mixing and matching is pretty clever: there's a three-part Autobot on the right side of the screen, and a two-piece Decepticon on the left, with the sentence divided into three phrases that go along with the horizontal band they're in.

The app is easy to use and even includes the traditional transforming sound effect from the original cartoon. However it's a bit strange to have a picture book for a movie that was rated PG-13, and although the book is tamer, parents should be aware that the source material is not appropriate for the same age as the book.

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.
