Lovers of the Fancy Nancy books will likely find everything they're looking for in Fancy Nancy Tea Party Time -- dressed-up little girls, pampered pooches, shiny jewels, delicate porcelain items, long important-sounding words, and a whole lot of pink. The adorable-yet-resourceful Nancy comes across very well as a video game character, and the look and feel of her books are accurately represented. There's a surprising amount of variety here, especially when you consider the arcade of mini-games that can unlocked. The reward system is a very nice one for younger players, as the amount of "fancies" you have never decreases. Once you have enough "fancies" to earn a prize, you can just take that prize -- you don't need to spend your fancies on it and then head back to the game to start earning from scratch for your next prize.

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.
