Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (5):

The best thing about the Bubble Guppies game is its variety. There are plenty of activities, all of which are very different from one another, including planting seeds, directing traffic, building a car, matching silhouettes, and more. And each of these activities has a nice educational lesson to it; the only one that really doesn't is the car racing at the end. The one big flaw in the game is the way it makes you wait through verbal instructions before performing any actions. This may not only rile up impatient kids, but it prevents them from acting on their own once they've gotten the grasp of a mini-game's rules.

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.
