In the realm of brain-trainers, ThinkSmart Kids is more fun and child-friendly than the sometimes stodgy Brain Age and more directly lesson-based than the colorful and cartoony Big Brain Academy. It is definitely more kid-appropriate than its companion title, ThinkSmart. While you may wonder exactly how some of the challenges are supposed to be educational, most are at least entertaining. The whole package is friendly and welcoming, from the unintimidating hosts to the colorful wallpaper. It's a good brain game for kids who are age 8 and older.

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.
