I decided to get a one year subscription for my baby girl and was glad to have done that. The activities were catered to her specific age and we had fun doing them together. I decided not to renew my subscription since my daughter is a toddler and we spend a lot of time outside of the house. I gave this 4 stars because now without the subscription, most of the activities are locked despite paying for a sub previously. With the cost, it would have been nice to have access to more than just 2-3 activities a day.
My super hero 5/5
By mom of baby adam
Baby sparks helped me through out my whole prosegure this helped me know what stage my baby is in and what not to do with him and what to do with him this is why I like baby sparks
I haven’t used this app too much yet with my newborn but I used it almost daily with my now 3 year old for his first year. I love this app and had to get it again for my second baby!
Like it 5/5
Good activities, easy to use! Pricey for full access, but feels worth it.
Unless you pay..this app no use 1/5
All the activities are locked... has high charges for individual unlocking. No use.
I wish I had this with my first child, but I am so happy that I found it with my second! We use it everyday.. so many activities to help different areas of your child’s development. Worth the purchase!
Amazing Development App for Babies!! 5/5
As a Father of 4 children, I have found this app to an indispensable tool in enriching my children’s development. I have seen firsthand the many benefits and improvements my children have experienced as a result of using this app. It is very easy to use, covers very important areas of their development and incorporates a wide variety of activities, and all the while I am bonding with my child. This app is an absolute MUST for every parent!
Love this app! 5/5
Love this app! It gives me a lot of different activities to do daily with my little! It help further his development and helps me know where he is in development. Highly recommend!
Great and helpful app!! 4/5
Very pleased with this app! And I feel like my son has a jump start on development since doing all these activities everyday! Only thing is it takes awhile to load and have to restart it several times a day! Hopefully maybe this is a quick adjustment and can be fixed! But overall great app def. worth the money!!
Amazingly robust! 5/5
Such a comprehensive app with videos and explanations. So helpful!
Love this app! 5/5
Thank you. Thank you! For the price of a coffee a month I’m getting this amazing tool to help my baby develop correctly in the first years! I love books, but I badly needed a more practical tool to show me exactly how to support my baby. Love this app!
Best money I’ve spent for my child 5/5
I began using BabySparks just to have some fun activities to do with my baby. But it is so much more. It has taught me so much about my little one’s development and how to support it that I know recommend it to all my friends.
I love that each activity has a video. It is very helpful to help me understand how to do the activity.
For all the research, content that this app offers and the impact that it is having in my baby I feel like this is the best money that I have paid in a long while.
A Must Have For New Parents 5/5
I have used BabySparks with my 2 kids and love this app. When my first son was born I had many questions related to his development. I knew this was a critical period in his life, but even after reading several books I didn’t feel as if I had it under control. Then I started using BabySparks.
Every day I get a few activities to do with my children. They are simple to do, they are fun and they help support some aspect of their development. The unexpected benefit is that I feel that they have also to bond with my kids, as it creates a space for us to have quality time every day.
After doing each activity the app asks for feedback and learns about their specific needs. My 2 children couldn’t be more different from one another and BabySparks has picked on this and customized its recommendations for their very different needs.
In addition to the activities to supoort development the app allows me to track their progress using their milestones and reports sections. This is important to me, because when I first became a mom I used to get so many opinions from friends and family, often conflicted. So I didn’t know who to trust. Tracking my children’s development has given me peace of mind that everything is ok....
My only suggestion to the developers is that they continue to expand their program. I would love to have this support for at least a couple of additional years.
Help with purchasing??! 4/5
This app is perfect for me but in order for me to get the full benefit I would need to subscribe, when I try to subscribe it does not let me. It gives me 3 options of subscriptions when I tap on the one I want it does nothing . So where can I purchase the whole app at??
Love it helpful
Horrible customer service 1/5
I’ve sent several emails in regards to my account and not being able to access anything. No replies!
I cannot find a number to call for assistance yet you continue to charge me no problem.
This is ridiculous and absolutely unprofessional
Extremely helpful! 5/5
I have been using this app since birth of my first daughter and it has proven itself helpful. Consistency is key, but as long as you keep “fun” practicing with your child, it is an amazing tool and resource. I have even had my husband download it to continue our play and learning when he has baby duty :) Thank You Baby Sparks!
Good app 3/5
I’m not sure if it doesn’t save settings, but I added child & it worked a few days & then was like new & I had to resetup- I wouldn’t save my child even after adding him a few times, so not happy with that part!
Baby Sparks Sparks creativity 5/5
Helpful for those mom moments when your brain is fried but you want to go Interacr with your sweet baby
Your day feels meaningful! 5/5
Choose just 5 of the suggested activities for your baby, in categories like Speech and Fine Motor. Do some or all of these activities for 5 minutes each (or more of baby enjoys them!) and you can check it off, knowing you worked on their development that day in a specific way.
-See and check off your baby’s skills as they develop.
-Video example for visual learners
-Feel accomplished instead of overwhelmed, whenever you do something engaging with your little one
-1-click tailoring to your baby
Dear developers: please make more months ASAP! My 28-month-old and I love your app, but he has almost finished the activities!
It is a great app, only concern is that in order to really use the app you need to buy it. The free version is just a demo.
Bueno pero he tenido problemas con el pago
Love it! 5/5
By Nugget rockstar
Awesome app! I love using it everyday to help my daughter with her development.
Sham! This isn’t free! 1/5
I was excited about this, I’ve never written a review. As a sahm, I was looking forward to new activities as I’ve not had a baby in over 15 years. I’m starting all over again and it’s been amazing, but challenging...after looking at 2 activities, an add to pay popped up. Very disappointed that wasn’t shown prior to downloading and wasting my time!
I think it’s BS that you have to pay to see the activities in the app. The activities that are free are WAY to easy for my LO. Like “practice head lifting,” really he’s 4 months old lol. Deleting. Waste of time.
This is essentially a $38 app. The free version is not even worth downloading as it has next to no features unlocked. This app needs to be less expensive! :/
Purchase error 5/5
By JHS 2626 :^)
I found today that activities were locked although I had made a lifetime purchase. And I accidentally made another purchase while trying to fix the problem. Could you refund the purchase I made today? Why were they locked in the first place?T_T
Unlimited growth for baby 5/5
Helps you teach things to baby you probably never knew to do with baby. The app is extremely helpful, if your a new parent this app is definitely for you. Even if your not a new parent there still could be things you could learn.
Subscription problems 1/5
I accidentally hit the yearly purchase and thought I had cancelled it. I then purchased monthly but was charged for both and it won’t allow me to cancel the $38 purchase and has been charging me the monthly subscription. Not worth the cost of $4 monthly and definitely not worth $38.
Must buy subscription 1/5
Virtually Everything useful needs to be purchased, and you have to have pay for a subscription. Disappointing.
Will take your money but it won’t give you access to your subscription 1/5
Bought subscription, everything is still locked. No way to even connect your purchase without going through the purchase process again.
Love it! 5/5
Give me so many great activities to do with my baby!
Me encanta esta aplicación 5/5
Muy buena aplicación
My baby girl 5/5
I enjoy seeing my baby girls development and doing tasks that help her learn and grow.
Great but can be glitchy 3/5
Really love the app, it has great and different activities to choose from daily! One issue though is that I get logged out randomly. The past week every time I go to open the app I have to log back in. If I weren’t opening it to then immediately interact with my son it wouldn’t be an issue, but that’s exactly what I’m doing and it gets frustrating.
Makes you log in EVERY TIME you use it 5/5
And it doesn’t save your info. Very annoying...
Not Worth the Price 3/5
I liked the idea of this app, so I went ahead and bought a subscription so I could access the activities. Since then, I’ve been disappointed with it. This app is buggy, clunky to use, and hard to navigate. It’s absolutely not worth the price.
As other reviewers have pointed out, the app constantly logs you out of it. There is also no option to save user info, so I have to type my email and password every time I open it — not a great feature on an app that should be opened several times a day. It also tends to randomly crash.
There was no option to invite additional caregivers, unlike other baby apps I have used. My husband tried logging in using my information, but despite claims to sync across devices, we couldn’t get activities he did with our daughter to show up on my phone, and vice versa.
Finally, the app as a whole is clunky and difficult to navigate. For example, there’s no obvious way to preview an activity. I like to overview everything on the list first so I can plan out my daughter’s activities. That way I know which activities can easily be grouped together and which ones need special equipment. But when you click on an activity to get more information, the app assumes you are doing it immediately.
This app does have great ideas for ways to play with my newborn, which is why I gave it three stars. I also appreciated that it keeps track of my preemie’s real age and adjusted age. However, for this price, I would have expected a far more refined app. I feel like I could have gotten the same amount of information from a book, with a lot less frustration.
Unusable - paid lifetime subscription 2/5
Update: The developer did respond to my email by telling me to delete and download the app again. I was able to access the paid videos. However I still have to log in every time I try to use it and logging in requires typing in your full email and password. When you have a baby ready to play it’s incredibly inconvenient and prevents me from using it much. For an almost $40 app (I have never paid this much for an app), it is not worth it.
Despite paying the lifetime subscription, the subscription videos are locked and when I click on them, I am told to purchase a subscription again. When I look in the app to see my purchase history, it had no record of my purchase. However, I have an Apple receipt for the subscription and when I purchased it, it worked for a few days. In addition, I am constantly signed out and there is no option to save log in info or use fingerprint log in. As result I have to type my email and password every time. I have contacted the developer but so far I have received no response. There should be option to refund apps that do not work.
By Virtual PA
Love that it is tailored to help in my daughter’s development.
Broken app 1/5
By Awaiting fix
This seems like it should be a really good app but I can't even get it to turn on. All I get us a blank white screen. I hope this issue gets fixed soon because I'd really like to try the app.
The free version is pointless 1/5
The part about there being a monthly fee is conveniently left out. The activities for my two month old included “lifting her head” and “tummy time”. Not exactly groundbreaking material. 🙄 Everything else you had to pay to unlock. I erased it the same day.
Amazing! But... 4/5
I am a child development home visitor. I see 12-15 babies a week and help parents learn about developmental milestones and relevant activities. I love this app! I thought I had found the perfect tool to help during my visits. It allows me to enter the children and their date of birth. It even had “development professional” in the list of who is using the app. I purchased the subscription (one year) and then realized I was limited to five children. It would be great if there was a professional level subscription that allowed more. I think most full time professionals serve about the same number of children I do. It would also be awesome if the app went all the way to 36 months (but I won’t get too demanding) Overall, this is an wonderful tool for parents.
Good Mother’s helper 5/5
Great information for us Mother’s.
High standard playing 2/5
When I first bought this app, first I thought it was monthly payment then when the entire year payment came out first I was a little upset and can’t get a hold of their billing department. Then there are the games, they expect you to have so many toys to play with that each activity is costing to go out and get the objects each activity. Example: grab five balls, each a different size and compare each size with the babies hands? Grab a sphere and have the baby practice crawling? Drop five objects in to cups...poke styrofoam? anyway you get the point. I don’t have styrofoam sitting around my house, I have a couple of balls and some blocks and a lot of toys, I went out and got some of the activity toys but each activity is until the next growth stage...so if you want to go out and buy several things to participate in the app then this is the app for you.
One of the best Apps in taking care and training a baby
Good Stuff!!! 5/5
☝🏿What the title said!!!
Not worth it. 1/5
I paid for a months subscription to see if I would like it enough to get the lifetime subscription.
Ever since then I cannot see any of the activities and thus the app is useless.
I deleted and re-downloaded the app with no change.
I haven’t been able to use the app in 3+ days at this point I point I want a refund.
*** I have deleted and added the app back at least 3x! So no that is not the issue.
I have been logged out while using the app and multiple times have tried to use the actives on the app only to find that none were available.
Love the application but not recently 4/5
Started out loving the application used it daily! I have six month old twins. As of late while using the application it crashes and erases the day sometimes even the week and resets the profile.
Best $24 you can spend on your baby! 5/5
By Bear's Mummy
I was already playing with my newborn but wanted to ensure I was offering mental and visual development as well as the physical. This app gave me several options for each type of development, daily and is very user friendly. I think it’s the best $24 I could have spent on my baby boy! The value of a well balanced, engaged but not over stimulated baby is priceless!!!!
