Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (1 ):

This friendly bunch of characters makes an excellent virtual tour guide for kids who are curious about the people and places of the world. They're inquisitive and excited about learning, and they overcome the inevitable bumps in the road by thinking critically to solve the problem; when that doesn't work, they learn from their mistakes and try something else. The process has excellent messages about self-confidence, teamwork, friendship, and the value of asking questions.

In addition to exploring lots of aspects of the natural sciences, Doki also exposes kids to a variety of new places and cultures in simple but meaningful ways. A trip to China for some silk thread to mend a scarf becomes a lesson on how silkworms work, but it also touches on the sounds, the food, and the art forms of the place on a level that's easy for kids to grasp. And for those who want to enhance the experience, the stories plant the seed for further learning as a family.

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.
