Sound sounds damaged 3/5
By my dish rag body
Game keeps having a damaged crackle sound like a broken or blown out speaker. This only happens while this game is being played and not caused by the device. Very annoying and frustrating to listen too, has been going on for several updates
My 5 year old loves it! 5/5
My 5 year old loves this app and so do I. There are so many games for a free app, and works so much better than another app we have that we payed for that does not work well.
App constantly crashes 2/5
iPad Air 1 latest os. App crashes constantly playing monkey mayhem in the wild kratts section. Every time you complete a board or get a new power disk the app crashes. Cleared cache, reinstalled app, still crashes.
Pictures don’t match what’s available in the game
Great games! Special needs Feature request 4/5
I have 2 autistic kids and while they really love these games they get frustrated when they see a lot of greyed out games they can’t play. I have raised the storage to the 2GB and they still can’t download all of them. Can you please double the storage limit and/or make only the games on the iPad be visible when not connected to WiFi?
Needs more controls 2/5
The games themselves are great, but the app is frustrating to use. My biggest complaint is that games are automatically deleted, which makes using the app away from WiFi a nightmare. My girls get so frustrated waiting for the games to download again and start clicking on other games, which then queue up and create this huge line of games waiting to download. Please fix!
WHAT IN THE WORLD!!! 1/5
I was downloading my favorite game and it says on the circle thingy that it is downloaded, but when I try to tap on it it is STILL downloading! Oh yeah and also that is my ONLY GAME that I even like because the Daniel tiger one is dumb! Please either fix this or make the games already downloaded.
Kept on glitching 1/5
By Super weirdest duuuuuuuuude
AWESOME idea 4/5
I think this app is a really cool idea, but it does have one issue. In many introductions for the games, where it tells you how to play it and stuff, there is no sound. And, in some games, the game gets frozen and I can’t play it without exiting the game and losing my current progress. I hope this issue gets fixed, but in the meantime, I will continue to play Odd Squad games. 👍
While the playing the Ruff’s Cookie Creator the cookies have silly names. My 7 year old began looking up the silly names to find a ‘gibbet’ is a device used in executions. Way to go.
Love London 5/5
I love you guys so much
Storage keeps resetting itself 2/5
Great games if you can ever play them for more that a day. Storage constantly resets itself and you lose all the games you have downloaded. Frustrating for my 4yr old, and myself, when we have to redownload all the games every day. Hope they find a fix for this soon. We love PBS and the games but can't keep fixing it every day.
Good Game! 5/5
I love the WK games but add the old games like Cheetah Race and all that stuff please
Where is Thomas the Tank Engine? 4/5
The Thomas the Tank games were my son’s favorite games (track work and repair). They were removed and he rarely uses the app now. Are you going to bring them back?!
Fun and educational 4/5
My 4 year old daughter loves this app. The only issue is her old iPad doesn’t have much storage and is very slow at downloading. If she decides she doesn’t like a game or wants to try a new game we gave to delete everything and start over. I would suggest that instead of deleting all games to make more room you should be able to delete the games one at a time.
Where did Thomas the tank engine go… 5/5
I love this app got my three year old. He has a blast and he is learning so many essential lessons for school before he enters into kindergarten. The Sesame Street Elmo games and puppy maze game are his favorites. However Thomas the tank engine was the initial reason I downloaded the application, and approximately two months ago it disappeared. My son was very upset that he could no longer play his favorite character anymore. Can someone tell me why Thomas and friends is no longer included on the PBS app?
We love this app 5/5
Our kids are huge fans of all of these shows and games!
Gentle Approach to Learning 5/5
My daughters, 2 & 4 have Autism. I love the gentle approach to learning, while my kids love splashing Baby Margaret and dressing up Elmo. I know they are learning every day skills, because they show me in pretend play. Autism can make the world a scary and distracting place. This app offers them an opportunity to explore it in from their comfort zone.
Great, but fatal flaw needs to be fixed 3/5
As others have said, the max storage in the grownups area resets itself back to 500MB arbitrarily, for no reason, no matter what you’ve saved it to. It’s a shame, because otherwise, it’s an excellent app. Developers - any plans to fix this bug? Jan 20, 2018, and bug just hit us again, deleting 20games, right in the middle of playing. We LOVE PBS, but are there no plans to fix this bug?? Thank you for the response - hoping the bug gets fixed soon!
Good idea, poor execution. 2/5
For an app meant for small children, this needs a lot of work. Some of the games are super cute but my toddler can't understand what is downloaded and what isn't, and many aren't appropriate for his age so I don't want him downloading games that are too difficult and wasting data. There should be a setting where little guys can only click games that moms and dads downloaded for them.
The other issue is, at first I couldn't even figure out how to get the games. If I accidentally click on one I can't turn off he download. It won't let me delete one app at a time either. Now I can click on them but it just sits there and won't load (months have gone by and no new games load).
I love it 5/5
By nightmare mary
Nice app and I love playing the Arthur games on here thank you for the Arthur games I really enjoy playing the Arthur games and Arthur is my favorite show on pbs kids
Good, but could use touches 2/5
Yea can’t do kart kingdom or oddtube and watch it
Eternally loading... 1/5
I’ve tried updating and uninstalling and reinstalling and the games app will open and get stuck on “loading.” This has caused a ton of headaches and crying for me and my toddler. The app is his favorite but now it’s just a real pain.
Need a lock for parental settings 5/5
Son keeps on deleting games because get in Parent settings and try to get out and click every things plz make a lock on it
Great games but storage constantly resets 3/5
My daughter loves the games. Everything she plays has been great. I went into the grownups area to change the storage to the max of 2 gbs so she could download all of the games she plays but it constantly resets back to the 500 mbs that the app started with. It does this for no reason, sometimes while she is playing them. Every time this happens we have to re-download almost all of the games. It gets frustrating.
Great Games 4/5
All of the games are great. You need a bit newer Ipador IPhone to get all of hem to run without audio issues but besides that they work great. There is one issue with the odd squad game patient checkup. Anytime you need to use the thermometer the game locks up. Any ideas on how to get that one fixed would be awesome.
Best alternative to YouTube, way safer 4/5
This is a great alternative if you’re hip to how weird and unsafe YouTube can get for your kid. Well, I should say the PBS videos app is more of a direct comparison but I like the content on this one very much too and the added bonus is that it’s interactive.
I have some suggestions that would make this a better tool for parents and more entertaining for the kids. Please add some kind of lock feature for the ‘for parents’ section. Kids new to iPads can hit every button they can see. If my kid opens that menu up and hits the clear storage button it just makes the app unusable because every thing disappears and each icon she hits after doesn’t do anything except start downloading (which takes forever to download on cellular). Please add some option to keep this restricted because I spent a lot of time downloading each game (multiple gigabytes worth) at home on WiFi, to only have it wiped out instantly even under my supervision.
Also I would like to turn off that dynamic storage option altogether. I just want to have the games I download on the app, and if the storage goes above the limit, I just prevent more downloads. I do not want to have stuff removed to make the extra space. It seems randomized, or maybe first in first out kid of deal - but I would at least like the option to manage the storage myself. Preferably in a locked section in the app for parents only like what I describe above.
Otherwise great app. I feel like this is a better option then the garbage over at YouTube.
I love playing this app 5/5
This app I love it because it has lots of games to play. every time I feel happy because it is amazing❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️💎💎💎💎💎💎💎
Storage issue 3/5
I have this app a 3 star rating only due to its storage issue. With it being free, minor glitches are expected, but nothing major that Keeps you from enjoying it. Is there a way we can keep the storage at 2GB permanently and keep the loaded games? It resets to 500MB automatically and we would have to reload all the games. Anyways, My son loves this app!
I can’t get into this app I mean like well I can’t play the games because it takes forever to load and I really like the games pls pls pls please fix so pls do it.
No sound 1/5
This is my daughters favorite app & it’s been without sound for weeks. I’m using the app on an iPad, so no ringer switch to turn on & my sound is all the way up (I have sound with all my other apps) I have also made sure all updates have been installed & even tried deleting & reinstalling the app. Please fix this issue!!
STILL Still No Sound??? 1/5
My granddaughter loved these games, but sound no longer works! Latest release says it fixed this issue, but still no sound!!
THANKS FOR THE REPLY PBS, BUT YOUR SUGGESTIONS DON’T HELP. I ALREADY CHECKED ALL SETTINGS. THE PBS KIDS VIDEO & OTHER APPS WORK FINE. PLEASE HELP!
No sound 1/5
Tried reinstalling multiple times and still no sound. We have newest IOS update. Mute buttons are off (all other sounds in other apps/music work). My daughter used to love this game, now it is usless.
Using the laptop is hard for my daughter so I downloaded the app.... but no sound. Very upset!
The games seem great but there is no sound 3/5
No sound so the app isn't usable
Sound problem 4/5
This app is great but recently the sound has been rattling the speakers of my iPad no matter the volume level. Tried clearing cache and restarting the iPad, but neither helped.
Please fix audio! 2/5
we love this app! the games are perfect for my 3yr old! but the audio has stopped working and the app is not usable without it.

Please update - no sound!! 1/5
By Glenifer W

No audio.. 1/5
By Crowded in the House
Great app, as you might expect, but on an iPad the games dont produce any sound. Useless in this regard. Audio works on iPhone, not on iPad (yes, settings verified)
Good I gues 4/5
Well I love this game but there should be an update and crashes a lot so you could buy this game but just remember it really crashes but anyway the games are super fun also got some game suggestions needs more word girl and stuff
Games for you and me 3/5
By By Jaedene
So the games are loading so long for me in the severs of it and it stinks but it wasn’t fun enough to play the games for the kids so I didn’t play with it anymore so I cry and cry more and more so I delete the app it’s not fun kids and family so read this one that I sent far away to let them see everything from everybody in whole world.
Hamster run is the best!! 5/5
5 stars just for the strategic hamster run game. My almost 4 year old loves it and I love how it challenges her and requires critical thinking. Please don't ever remove this game!! I would buy it by itself if I could!! This is such a great game app. There are things both of my kids can do on it (have an almost 2 year old as well). I certainly don't feel any screen-time related guilt when my kids are learning and problem solving while playing on their ipads!! Thanks PBS!
So disappointed with this app. Lots of great games, but I constantly have to re-download the same exact games that my son played an hour before. This needs to be fixed ASAP. This app is close to being unplayable.
Bugging issue 2/5
If you close the app by swiping it off, it will delete all the apps and reset the storage. This is a major bug that needs a resolution.
Lots of bug issues 3/5
This would be an amazing app if it didn’t have so many problems. I’m constantly having to change the storage from the automatic setting to the max. Trying to do Any simultaneous downloads of the games causes the download to freeze and you have to uninstall and reinstall the app. My little one Loves the two Thomas the train games. Those games are only playable for a minute or two. Then the touch screen starts glitching out. I updated the app and now I have to download everything again and reset the settings. This app would be Amazing if it actually worked.
YES!!! Download the app !!! 5/5
By Blueberry nessa
So many different games and all on different levels . From easy elmo and little tigger to super y sentences and vocabulary 🤗. We absolutely love learning with games and recommend the app.
