The amount of storage space you get in the free plan is pretty sweet, and the site isn't overrun with ads like many other free programs. Pixorial is also great because it allows you to upload previously filmed videos as well as create new ones. The Krowds feature is safe and lets kids share what they've been working on with invited friends (however, once a video is shared on social media, you lose a bit of control). Most kids probably don't have any "vintage video" (VHS tapes, film, etc.), but it's a neat option for families who want to convert their old videos (this does cost a bit of money). The focus on storytelling sends a nice message to kids about why we record all this stuff in the first place. Sharing memories with digital media is second nature to this generation, but there's a desire for connection behind it all.

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.
