A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Kids can practice counting numbers 1 to 20 in this lightly educational app; however, number sense is definitely not the focus. Though kids can listen to a voice count the number of gems -- and can listen in more than one language -- there's no incentive to count along or manipulate the numbers in any other way. Unicorn Glitterluck - Rainbow Adventure for Kids is a sweet app for young preschoolers, but don't expect its educational content to be very magical.
Ease of Play
Clear visual instructions show kids exactly where to tap, swipe, and drag.
Violence & Scariness
One world includes clouds and lightning strikes; though unicorn is never in danger, rapid flash could be scary to some young players.

Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
Kids who love the bestselling board game will likely enjoy this companion app, but its one-note action may not hold their interest for long. The unicorns help kids count up to 20, and there are many language options, but counting the gems is the only truly educational content, which isn't much for an app in the Education section of the store. Decorating the unicorns is also creative fun, although the paintbrush and sticker features -- which require some precision and don't include the option to erase -- may be difficult for younger kids to use. Also, trying to navigate back to the place where kids decorate the unicorn isn't intuitive; they'll need to pause the game and select the area on a map. While the graphics and unicorn theme are cute and the side-scrolling platformer game is fun for a short time, a few more game and number-sense options would make it more worth the price tag.
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.
