A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Educational Value

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.

Sexy Stuff

Main screen includes an icon that leads kids to videos and ads for lots of other apps by same developer.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Kids make their unicorn jump to collect gems and listen to a voice count what they've gathered in one of many languages. Then, they can decorate their own unicorns with colors and stickers.

What's it about?

Kids keep the unicorn jumping and collecting crystals by tapping and swiping in UNICORN GLITTERLUCK - RAINBOW ADVENTURE FOR KIDS. This fast-paced, 3-D, side-runner game is all about the unicorn moving and counting. Players decorate unicorns from a selection of wings, horns, tails, colors, stickers, and more. Players or parents can turn off the music and/or the audio sounds and can choose from a a selection of languages. If players pause the game, they can return to the unicorn-decoration station and use collected gems to purchase accessories.

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.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the creative options kids can choose when decorating their unicorns. As your kids scroll through the tails, horns, wings, colors, decorations, and more, ask them about the choices they're making.

  • For some added language learning, select a different language in which to learn some numbers. Even if your kid doesn't want to learn all the way to 20, it can be fun to learn how kids say "1, 2, 3" in other languages.
