Mini-games are deeply appealing but have shallow content.

YO GABBA GABBA! BIRTHDAY PARTY has lots of kid appeal. Characters are fun, cute, and inviting, and games are simple -- perhaps too simple -- even for young kids. Kids who know and love the show will particularly appreciate this interactive opportunity. Yet the content tends toward superficiality. For example, the birthday song is cute but is drastically over-simplified as it repeats the same words again and again. Also, in one game kids catch falling colored plates. Varying the falling plate colors and asking kids to distinguish among different colors, or emphasizing counting the plates with written numerals, would make play more meaningful. Sometimes there are long pauses while games load, which could frustrate kids. Ultimately, this is an appealing app that falls just a little flat.

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.
