Is It Any Good?

The benefits of brain-training games are unclear. Nonetheless, the challenge is fun, and kids may see an improvement in their ability to tune out distractions and focus on one specific task after some training with True Color. Kids will be surprised at how difficult such a simple request can be, which opens doors to talking about perception and how the brain works. Kids also have the option of playing in colorblind mode and choosing from nine languages, which adds an extra layer of challenge, but beyond that, there's not a huge amount of variety.

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.
