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.

Fun game for children

My six year old son plays this game. He really likes it and is quite good at figuring out video games, but this one can be difficult for younger players at times. He does get frustrated a little. It might be easier for older children.
