Wubbzy's Pirate Treasure
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.

The parents' guide to what's in this app.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Wubbzy's Pirate Treasure is an interactive storybook app based on an episode of the Nick Jr. TV series Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! Kids join Wubbzy, Daizy, Widget, and Walden on an adventure to find pirate treasure, and learn along the way that the journey itself is way more fun than the reward at the end. The 21-page story is broken up by four interactive mini-games, and kids can jump to any page via a table of contents.

What’s It About?
Wubbzy's Pirate Treasure offers three modes: Just a Book mode lets kids read by themselves or with a parent; Read to Me mode highlights each word as the sentences are read out loud by a narrator; and Read & Play mode lets kids make fun things happen by tapping on the scenery. Four simple mini-games complement the narrative. For example, kids can help the gang dress up as pirates by dragging costumes onto each character.
Is It Any Good?
WUBBZY'S PIRATE TREASURE is a bit unusual among storybook apps in that it separates the story into an interactive mode (that lets kids tap on the scenery to see fun animations) and a non-interactive mode that's strictly for reading along to, rather than combining them into one experience. Not that the story suffers from this at all. Regardless of which mode kids choose to enjoy, they'll be treated to wonderful cartoon graphics, fun sound effects, and a story with a wonderful message. Parents are encouraged to reflect on the story with their kids with the help of sample questions located in a Grown-Up's Corner section. Overall, a well-produced app with a great message.
