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.

give it to 4 and over and 7 is good

not rated for age

OK, but gets old fast

My kids liked this game, but quickly mastered all of the parts. There are about 5 different "games" to play. It does have 3 levels, so there's a bit of room for growth, but even the highest level stuff isn't very challenging. Our 3 year old is whipping through the 2nd level. As a parent, I find bits of it boring and repetitive. Not a lot of creative thinking going on. The 'skills' are pretty basic (matching, shapes, etc.) -- but then I don't have my kids play computer games to teach them things, they're for fun.
