Kid-testers were impressed by how the program turned everyday carnival games into fun, logical challenges. Because the games are easy to play but hard to win, kids jumped right in -- but they found that they had to stop and think to become a victor. Players will find very clever variations of pop-the-balloon, Skee-Ball, bumper cars, a maze-type game, a code-breaker game, and a super-soaker activity.

The program offers two modes of play: adventure and puzzle practice. It has adaptive leveling and plenty of help along the way. The video sequences from the TV show are very grainy, which is a small annoyance. All in all, though, kids thought this was a carnival worth investigating.

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.
