The strength of JumpStart Study Helpers Spelling Bee is that it takes the drudgery out of studying for spelling tests. But with only three games, kids' attraction to the arcades may wane over time. All added words are spoken in a robotic voice, and the software does not help children learn the definitions of the words --something many teachers test along with spelling.

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.
