It's still screen time. 1/5
This app is great...if you're a parent who is too lazy to read your kid an actual book and you for some reason haven't realized that Netflix can distract your kid as well as anything else while you do anything but interact with him/her.
FREE TRIAL SCAM 1/5
I tried the app because they said there's a "free trial" period! So before the free trial period date ended, I unsubscribed so that I won't be charged for the following month. After doing so, I have also deleted the app. Imagine my surprise when I saw that They charged me $77 for something they claim to be "FREE?!" 😡 for that I give this 0 stars!😡 give me my money back!😡
Great app 5/5
Love the fire truck song!!!!
Kids are loving it 5/5
The in story games are really fun and keep my kids engaged with reading
Edutaining for children 5/5
By TJ Tom Jones
My 6 and 3 year old can sit down and enjoy a 30 minute to 2 hour Speakaboos session whenever they choose. Great for car rides, plane rides or home days. Highly recommended.
My students love this app. They can't wait to use it in daily reading centers. The read to me feature is so wonderful for emergent readers. It helps them practice their skills, but still enjoy a great story. One of the best educational apps I have ever used.
NOT FREE 1/5
By D.Marie "Paris"
Very disappointed. You can download it for free but pay a monthly fee.
Nothing free to try 2/5
By Samrat usa
Every thing I choose asks me to subscribe
Amazing App my Godson Loves 5/5
By Andre Preneur
My Godson is just learning to read and Speakaboos is a so wonderful resource to help him fall in love with reading. He uses it daily, reads along with the stories and the interactivity keeps him highly engaged.
Chicka Chika boom! 5/5
By Gavin’s Mom
Love the new stories - keep em' coming. It feels so great that my little ones reading during screen time! Much better than noisy games!
Best kids app I've come across! 5/5
Really great app. My son loves the dinosaur stories. Please add more!
What a Great App for my Kid! 5/5
What a great storybook app. My 4 year old loves it. Highly recommended.
Great job!!! 5/5
By Besting own
My daughter loves reading with Speakaboos- Her smiles as she plays and learns and reads make this mom's heart soar!
Grandson loves this app 5/5
My grandson loves these stories! His current favorite is Monster Birthday Surprise
Love but gets stuck 3/5
My daughter loves speakaboos but the newest version always gets stuck and I have to delete the app and reinstall everyday. It gets stuck on adding new stories or on the speakaboos blue screen.
Not free 5/5
This app is not free because it does nothing unless you pay money. It's just a subscription window that pops up when you try to do anything.
Great reading app for kids 5/5
This is a very useful app for getting kids to love reading because it’s kid-friendly, educational, and the stories are so diverse. I recommend this to all my parent friends!
Really nice for bedtime 5/5
I use this for bedtime reading with my son. Sometimes we pick new stories, but he really like the Robot stories because he can tap on the character and choose different actions. It's like a choose your own adventure book, but better!
False books 1/5
It showed were the wild things are then after trial/purchase there is no such book. The read to me is very fast and no way of slowing it down- not worth the money!
NOT FREE 1/5
This app is NOT free. I hate it when I download a "free" app, only to find that you literally can't play anything without purchasing a subscription.
My kids love it 5/5
We have boy/girl twins and it's hard to find an app they both enjoy. This app has been great and they take turns picking stories they both like.
By reading daddy-o
Love the new holiday theme. New stories as well! Keep 'em coming, great work.
Kept crashing 2/5
My daughter really likes the app which is the only reason I'm giving it more than one star. It seems ok to me as a parent. The problem is that she uses it for a time during the day and the next day when we start up the app it never gets past the start-up screen. I have to delete the app and re-download every time I reopen it. We are only doing the free trial so I'm glad we didn't purchase it.
Customer Service is Terrible 1/5
Get ABC Mouse much better value and customer service. The price for this does not equal the quality.
Not Free 1/5
Big Fan 5/5
Our family has gotten hours of enjoyment from this app. Our favorites are the interactive stories but we like the videos too. I like knowing my kids are in a safe and ad free environment when they use Speakaboos. Highly recommended!
Love this app! 5/5
My 4 year old ask for Speakaboos at least once a day :-)
My son looooves it 5/5
Thank goodness for this app. Not only has Speakaboos fueled my son's vehicle obsession, but it gets him excited about reading and learning. I love that he can easily navigate it and find stories himself, and we can use the Read it Myself mode to read together.
Update made incompatible with ipad Mini Retina 2/5
My daughter loved this app and used it often. After the update, it no longer opens on the iPad she uses.
Please tell me what is SO advanced about a video and a reading app that makes this obsolescence necessary. Also, forcing an update that makes the app not work is lousy manners. You've lost my business.
Great graphics and library 5/5
I live overseas and this is a great way for my kids to keep learning English through amazing stories and animation. Enough stories to keep them entertained !
Fabulous program for my two granddaughters, 5 & 6. They love the stories and the games!!!
Lol dont get this 1/5
By Jake. Supper
Lol everything on here costs money! Dont get it
Scam for money 1/5
By Create nickname_01
Do not download this!!! If you do and hit trial, you will be charged $74.89 after the trial runs out. This is not disclosed at all. Do not download this
I'm so upset this app would be amazing if it didn't constantly freeze and I'm paying for something I can't use only can use when it decides to work !! I'd like my money back
Ok app 2/5
My daughter liked this app at first but lost interest fast. Didn't bother to pay for the subscription cost. Got an email to take a survey on the app and never got the promised Amazon gift card. Won't waste my time trying to help improve a company/app again.
Niece still loves it! 5/5
There are enough stories of different kinds that she's always finding something new. I love it when she's gone through a story and actually reads it to me!
Awesome app 5/5
My 18month old love the books
THIS APP DOES COST MONEY 1/5
They didn't include that the app does cost money. My son couldn't read one story without having to start up a monthly payment plan.
Best kids app I've seen 5/5
By Craig Maither
My Nephew Loves This! 5/5
I just downloaded Speakaboos for my nephew to distract him from games and videos and he loved it! He found the books he liked on cars and trucks, read along, clicked on characters to hear them speak and repeated this over and over until it was time to sleep. It's really nice to see an app that makes reading so fun for young kids and has enough stories to keep their attention.
Expensive glitchie headache 1/5
By Stray ur
We enrolled after a free trial period. We paid for 4 months and every time my daughter tried to use the app the app would report that our membership was expired. So we could never use it, nor could we cancel.. Had to get help through apple support to cancel after 4 months of being charged and never able to use.
Absolutely Fantastic Reading App! 5/5
I have tried several reading apps where it involves $$. I still love, "Read me stories." After that I came across so many which asked subscription. But after a long find finally after read me stories this is absolutely terrific and fantastic for all ages. My daughter is 3 she loves it same as her 6 year old Brother. Love it & just love it. Can't praise enough. It's worth the money as instead of $7 a book ur getting unlimited books in a month.
Love it! 5/5
My daughter loves being read to on this app and interacting with the stories!
Regret our year subscription purchase 2/5
I regret purchasing the year subscription primarily because we are forced to log in every day to access the content which is not convenient especially for young children. Out of several months worth we have used it a handful of times. Fix this and it might be worth the purchase. Content is okay although I wish the read along content was made into the picture rather than an awkward white box. Also the content seems more video based than I would like.
As a teacher, I think this is a fantastic teaching tool.
Great app! 5/5
My kids love it!
My niece loves it! 5/5
I bought a subscription for my 5 year old niece and, she can't get enough. Every week I get a FaceTime call so she can read ME a story!!
Perfect for Guided Reading 5/5
So perfect and easy for my guided reading groups in my 1st grade classroom. I'm starting to plan for back-to-school, and it's so simple to use this platform to find titles for my small group lessons with the Lexile filter, plus all the reading modes have made it wonderful for my reluctant and emergent readers to enjoy the books that otherwise would have been on a frustrational reading level for them. The word highlighting and text-touch feature are great, too. Planning on making sure my entire grade level team has a subscription this year.
So many stories!!! 5/5
I gave my son a subscription to speakaboos recently and he's been going through and exploring the different interactions in each story. The space stories are his absolute favorite. There's an abundance of stories as well for him to choose from which he's loving. I'd highly recommend this app for any parent!
Great kids app!! 5/5
I downloaded for the nephews and they loved it. Coolest part is that the stories are actually educational even though the kiddos think it's just fun stuff.
