A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
Characters in the game take turns being the focus of attention and they are rewarded verbally by other characters for their creativity.
Positive Role Models
The characters are all encouraging and supportive of one another.
Ease of Play
The game is easy to play and navigate.
Violence & Scariness
The game has no violence, but there is a "sad ending" option for the stories in the last chapter that may leave young children mildly scared or worried. One scene also has the image of a skeleton (dressed up as in a Day of the Dead celebration).

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Land of Me is an interactive, educational story game told in six chapters. In each chapter, three animal friends visit one of six different locations and take part in an activity. At each location, kids are asked a series of questions and their answers are reflected in the final product created at each location. Each of the six available chapters has additional hotspots to click, and crafts, coloring pages, and other activities to download and print. The software is British, so American families should be prepared for some spelling differences that can be confusing for early readers.
Is It Any Good?
The Land of Me is a fun way for preschoolers and early readers to experience how words impact what happens in a story. It's also empowering for kids to make choices that change what is happening on screen. The game helps parents get involved by providing additional background information on-screen, as well as suggestions for questions to ask to engage kids in what they're doing. Each of the levels has some hidden interactive elements as well. A minor flaw is that each chapter feels like it could be a standalone app, making the price tag feel a bit steep. However, you can download the free trial and play for a week before deciding about a purchase.
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.
