Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

A xylophone, a robot, and a tablet is a winning combination; unfortunately, the instrument moves and goes out of tune, and the robot pauses between moves which changes the rhythms of the songs. Kids will appreciate the nice selection of songs included and the option to add their own notes to those or to create their own original songs, but the limited moves and painfully off notes may cause kids to quickly tire of making robot music. Though the robots are prohibitively expensive for many families, the potential for learning and fun is great, and perhaps the prices will fall over time.

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.
