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.

I'm reviewing the original game not Pet Pals 2

I don't have Pet Pals 2, but the original game isn't listed on Common Sense Media. The original Pet Pals is what we tried out after the disappointment from Minecraft Story Mode. There is no cruel characters and it's very friendly and innocent. Let your kids play this.

Good game for Leapster Explorer

We loved the original Pet Pals so much we bought this. Not compatible with the Leapster 2 unlike the original, so we bought the Explorer and it was great
