1.0 out of 5 stars Confusing and ideologically driven answers to human biology questions.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on 5 March 2022
A real shame as some answers/questions are funny, factual and scientific in an age appropriate way.

Unfortunately the questions and answers involving human biology are ideologically driven, inaccurate, confusing (flittering between ‘gender neutral’ language and back again repeatedly) and don’t get me started on the horrifically sexist answer involving Mrs.Claus.
