Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (3 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

WACKY SAFARI certainly makes no lofty claims about boosting kids' vocabularies or honing their math skills. The app's five mini-games are loud, silly, tacky, and likely to amuse toddlers to no end while driving the grown-ups in the room crazy. Example: When kids call up the lion cub in Wacky Phone they're treated to a "voice mail" saying that he's gotten into his mom's make-up with a picture of the cub sporting colored streaks all over its face. From over-the-top voice-overs and garish graphics to strident music (that can be easily toggled on and off, thankfully), Wacky Safari certainly lives up to its name. A free ad-supported version of the app is also available.

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.
