Short activities have a nice feel but are light on learning and aren't likely to hold kids' interest for long. Appealing graphics and kid-friendly language give kids a sense of life in London. Kids can learn about the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, the origin of the London Underground, or what's in a typical British breakfast. The activities that accompany these tidbits aren't particularly unique or interesting, though. Classics such as memory, spot the difference, and a multiple-choice quiz are joined by slightly more inspired games, like the one in which kids must build a path for an acorn to reach a squirrel. Yet none of the games will be challenging for kids to complete. Though some games have slightly different content each time kids open them, there's not much to keep them coming back. One neat feature is that there are multiple languages, which makes the app accessible to lots of families. Traveling with Arthur - London city guide for kids gives kids a superficial introduction to a few things uniquely London, but a bit more challenge and depth would add appeal.

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.
