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.

Flawed But Fantastic

There are a few issues with this title: it often counts movements from a previous step as belonging to the next step, and despite this being a perfect opportunity to use Miis (you did spend a long time modelling your family and friends, right?), they use their own generic people models. It can also be really hard to aim at things to build or collect them, though some people might not consider that a negative :) On the plus size, this is a perfect way to tie physical activity in with rewards. Unlike an elliptical in front of the TV, exercise and rhythm are essential for progressing, and this game uses some common video game tricks to draw you in: steps taken are "money", which you can use to unlock paths, songs, times of day, and to build things in the map. 10 steps for a flower pot, 100 for a palm tree, 400 for a fancy house, 1000 for a flower field, and unlike a lot of video games, there's a natural termination when you get too tired (though you might make that extra little push to build that windmill, because points don't carry over) Personally, I find it motivating enough to clock 12,000 steps in a session easily, and the music is really good, though you may wish to go in and disable some songs (which you can) that have more adult lyrics.

This title has:

Great role models
