This is a refreshing change of pace in the traditional fairy tale genre. Instead of Rapunzel being rescued by a prince, in this software, Rapunzel does the rescuing.

With this software, girls become interior designers. While players are rarely allowed to start from scratch, they can decorate items by scrolling through different design themes until they find one that appeals to their sense of style. Kids will have fun making things look pretty. The creativity projects are unusual and involve multiple steps.

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.
