My Superkid is a cute social game that boasts wonderful graphics and some extremely entertaining animations that help it stand out among similar titles. Players get to decorate a flying island with a variety of whimsical furniture and items grouped into themes such as Fairy, Magic, Roman, and Technology, then watch as the superhero runs, jumps and flies around it, even interacting directly with certain objects like hot air balloons and flying pirate ships.

Although the social features of My Superkid are rather tepid, there's a solid quest system that adds some structure to the game and gives players concrete goals to complete rather than simply amassing levels and loot. These great features, coupled with an overwhelmingly positive message, make My Superkid a game worth checking out. The game would certainly appeal to younger children, but since Facebook requires its users to be at least 13 we can't recommend the game to kids younger than that.

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.
