Kids like it

Our kids love this movie and the music that is in the movie as well. It's not a musical-type movie but has a few songs that are fun. This movie has some rude moments and words that I would have preferred not to have in here: shut up! Idiot! and a few others. There are a few parts in the movie that our younger son (4) is scared of so we have rated this for our older child's age.

Rio's lighthearted vibe and fun collection of mini-games make it a great party game for the younger crowd, whether or not they've actually seen the movie. Although there's not as much variety in the mini-games as you would find in a series like Mario Party, none of them are particularly difficulty or tricky, and the controls are straightforward. All in all, this is a very accessible collection that should appeal to kids in the same age range as those who saw the movie.

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.
