Kids who are curious about wildlife will love watching the live feeds of animals going about their daily lives. Virry. Feed the Lion, bathe the Rhino has some wonderfully close-up cameras on wildlife, giving kids a clear and intimate view you can't always get at a zoo. It's a really unique approach to educating kids about animals, and it gives kids access they might not otherwise have. On the downside, app navigation isn't as friendly as it could be, and there are some icons and areas that kids may not know what to do with. There's also very little that can be done without a subscription, so the idea that it's a free app is misleading, but the overall cost isn't terribly high. Despite these drawbacks, it's worth trying for a month or so, especially if you have kids who are crazy about animals.

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.
