Each activity offers four levels of difficulty and 15 challenges within each level. The content adjusts in difficulty, depending on how the child is responding.

Because this software has no overall story or external incentive to play it, some kids may lose interest before finishing all the musical puzzles. Parents interested in encouraging their kids to explore this software might want to participate with them to create a cooperative play experience.

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.
