Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that, while plug-and-play games aren't very sophisticated in terms of graphics or controls, they're fun to play, offer some educational content, and are self-contained. Parents will need to remember to check if the power is turned off on the unit.
Is It Any Good?
The games come with plenty of levels and the joystick is easy for young children to use. Unfortunately, the unit does not have an automatic shut-off; to avoid draining the four AA batteries, parents will want to check to see if their children remembered to turn off the power.
Plug-and-play games like Disney TV Games bridge the gap between PC games that aren't portable and complicated video games that are expensive and too difficult for young children. While the games are not very sophisticated in terms of graphics or controls, they are fun to play, offer some educational content, and are self-contained. They are easy to pick up and take with you on trips or connect to car televisions. Because they are so simple to play, even technology-intimidated parents can join the fun.
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.
