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.

Good game for fluent readers

A great game for stretching your spelling and vocabulary skills. It's best for children who are fluent readers. While it's hard for children to initially spell words that are long enough for the upper levels, kids who easily pick up on patterns quickly learn to add "-ing" or "-s" or "-er" to make longer words. I like the fact that you never die, just have to go back and try again. It helped my son learn some persistence. There is some 'violence' in that the characters attack each other. There are also some scary characters. But the cartoons are well done and the violence is never gory.

This title has:

Too much violence
Educational value
