Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2):

In the landscape of kids' technology, this software game stands out. It offers endearing characters that are fascinating to watch and even more fun to interact with, stunning graphics, an engaging storyline, no violence, and age-appropriate educational activities that are fresh in their approach to learning.

Another plus is that this software is replayable since the 12 educational activities can be played separately from the adventure, and enjoyed after kids have completed the adventure.

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.
