A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this game is a comfortable fit for children because it allows them to study in a manner similar to the way they play video games. Parents should note that the iQuest is most effective when it is used to study specific textbook materials. To set that up, parents will need to spend additional money on either add-on cartridges or the Mind Station Connector. Check to see if your child's textbook is covered by the iQuest materials before buying.
Is It Any Good?
Tweens and early teen testers liked the iQuest because it was easy to use and it was "cool" to own. Its sleek blue-and-gray appearance made these adolescents feel like they were grownup. A minor gripe was that the iQuest talks to them too much while in the study mode. Nonetheless, kids liked the interactive nature of the studying, and found the Merriam Webster's School Dictionary to be very helpful.
IQuest is a comfortable fit for children these days, because it allows them to study in a manner similar to the way they play video games.
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.
