Is It Any Good?

Gameplay offered in this software is very simple and supportive. While the narrator is often a bit over the top with her use of endearments such as "darling," young children will find the play environment helps them to build confidence using a computer.

However, the software takes this simplicity too far. The seven tasks don't present enough of a challenge because all kids do is point and click to scroll through choices. For example, with the baking the cake task, kids simply click on items in a cupboard to add them to the batter instead of having to count or discriminate between items. And when players need to find items for the ponies, the items simply appear in front of them instead of asking youngsters to use visual discrimination to pick out the correct ones.

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.
