For kids looking to make simple videos with premade characters and other built-in options, this app is a winner. As long as kids, parents, and teachers approach VidMaker - 3D MovieMaker for Kids with the understanding that they can't make action videos starring real people, this app offers a lot of creative storytelling options. What's not to love about creating videos starring robots of your choice who can speak dialogue you create for them? There's also an interesting array of publicly shared VidMaker videos (some created by VidMaker staff and others by users) that kids can get ideas from for their own video creations, and they can learn some educational content from some of these videos, too.

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.
