Never encountered ads.

I have an Amazon Prime subscription, and I own an ad free version of the app with no in game purchases. I don't know if other appstores like Google Play have this version though.

Is It Any Good?

Parents say: (2 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

There's a lot of character-driven cuteness to love in this seek-and-find, crime-solving app, but the consumerism clouds the fun. After the first couple of scenes, the objects on Zootopia Crime Files: Hidden Object become increasingly well hidden, and kids get bonus points for not using hints. As a result, there's an element of perseverance that adds good challenge to this otherwise just-for-fun game. It's important that kids know how to read or have adults read the written text to them, as there are no audio instructions or read-aloud elements. Also, there's a lot of consumerism here, with advertising messages, in-app purchases, and no parent gate on the promo screen for other apps. It's a fun app for fans, but there's too much consumerism.

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.
