I like to use this when I play fake school in the summer. It is really good and most apps have free trails
PBS Kids Games 3/5
Odd Squad Cases game won’t download. I played it earlier this month and it works fine but now it doesn’t. Please fix.
Games disappear- update didn't fix 1/5
I was hoping after the update that it would fix the game disappearing issue but unfortunately it doesn't. Even after you change the storage space and max it out at 5 GB,you still waste time downloading the games your child loves, just for the games to disappear five minutes later. I have a brand new iPad updated to the most recent iOS and our child loves this game but we had to delete it. Developers you guys really need to figure out this problem I'm not the only person complaining about it. How do you guys even have a job still? The app is useless if it keeps deleting the games
Soooooo lloooonnngg 1/5
It’s taking so long to load
Enjoy but always has bugs 3/5
My son loves this app but he continues to be interrupted by glitches within the games. Hopefully PBS will get it worked out!
Menu Absent? Only 3 Games? 3/5
Help @developer - I just got a new phone (iPhone 8). I restored all the apps from my old phone, and everything seems to of gone fine. But today my daughter was in this yet, and noticed there’s only three games when is Daniel tiger, one is Ken, and the other is some rhino bots game. Also, I click the PBS I can, and a button appears for games and one for videos… But clicking the springs no response… No menu… No commands or drop down. Do I just need to do a simple uninstall and reinstall? Is anyone else experiencing this?
Games randomly getting deleted 4/5
I play the game every day since I got. I also downloaded every game in there. It is extremely fun but then during when I’m moving I am playing and I just got out the game I was playing but then EVERY SINGLE GAME except for the starter games went poof. I went and grabbed by my mom’s phone for the hotspot to redownload EVERY SINGLE GAME except fir the starter games. I really hope you fix that. Like seriously please do.
App closes by it self when playing 3/5
App closes for no reason while playing
DO NOT UPDATE!! 1/5
This new “Spring” update is terrible!! The games constantly freeze now, which is very frustrating for little ones!!! You really should have tested it before you released it!!! Please fix!!
Great when it works 2/5
By Liam's Gramma
These games are fun for my grandson to play when they are actually working. They seem to freeze often or just don’t don’t work. He gets very frustrated and doesn’t understand why it’s not doing what it should.
It is fun
Like the games 4/5
I like the games they’re very educational the only thing is the games I downloaded keep disappearing and I have to download them again!
Love this app but.. 4/5
Love this app for my daughter but when we try to play games the app just shuts down and it goes back to my home screen very frustrating and she gets very upset because she thinks she’s doing something wrong!
Best game ever
Learn a lot but some possible content suggestions 4/5
My 6 yo loves this App and he learns all about which things to place in the categories of : landfill, reuse, and recycling but I have to admit some of the icons used for these are confusing but also a lot of the objects can and are recycled rather than reused so he keeps loosing a point sadly.
I am sad 5/5

Game stops frequently 3/5
By April Vile
My son and I just downloaded this the other day. He loves it, but unfortunately it is SUPER aggravating that the app will open and close unexpectedly and quickly while in the middle of play. I have to reopen the app sometimes 5 or 6 times for my kid to even get to play a game, because it will open and close within seconds.
Great games but very buggy and freezes constantly 3/5
My daughter loves the games. I just wish some of the games didn’t constantly freeze up or slow down. The Odd Squad Sector 21 game is her favorite, but it starts to get buggy pretty soon after playing it. It’s painstakingly slow to move the character through the terrains to find creatures, or the markers (like rocks or trees) you’re supposed to get to aren't even there (but you can still search in that spot and the animal can still be found - you just can’t see the animal either. It’s disappoint because the app has such great content. We’ve deleted and reinstalled the app several times. Our iPad and iPhones that have the app on them have plenty of space and we run the most current iOS.
Good but imperfect 4/5
I haven’t had the app long but I and my 2 boys like it so far. I just have one complaint. They love Word Girl and so like to play Pretty Princess Magical Rescue. Not the most educational but at least there’s a tiny bit of vocabulary at the beginning. However, each time they reach the end of a game scene by collecting the 5 flowers, a man’s voice says there is a riddle to solve and then nothing else happens. Nothing comes up or is said further. We can’t find anything to click on except the X to exit. It’s like it just freezes there so we can go no further in the adventure. I am hopeful this can be fixed and maybe there will be a little more vocabulary or educational component with the riddles too! Otherwise we just only get to go through the first stage of each scene.
Keeps Undownloading 2/5
Kids love the games within the app (and the games great), so 2 stars for that. But after we download them, they keep randomly undownloading. We have to keep redownloading them every time they want to play and it’s very frustrating. Would be nice if once downloaded, they stayed downloaded.

Let’s go Luna 🦋🐸🌕 4/5
By # Jolie
Hey it takes to long for games to upload so just let it take 1 minuet to upload.
Can’t play most of the games? 1/5
There are only a couple games my kids are able to play. There is a circle over almost all of the other games and they are unable to be clicked on to play
Great App but has it’s Glitches 4/5
By Rachel From Canada
This is my daughters favourite app - she lives that we can change up what games are on it and download different ones to make things new (I keep it at a 500GB limit or it doesn’t work properly). All was good until a couple months ago when the app stopped loading unless we are connected to WiFi (I have data turned off for this app). It had previously worked fine and we used it all the time in the car and on the bus. Please fix the issues with the app loading and also with the storage!
Powerful By Strength 5/5
By Pro Joshua
This game app is the best game collection ever, and I will definitely recommend new “Wild Kratts” games
Touch Calibration Issue 2/5
This game is great my daughter loves it, however trying to play the games is difficult. Almost like there is an issue with touch calibration. Unfortunately we keep trying to figure out the problem but it only occurs when this app is open. Please update and fix this issue I would hate to have to delete this game.
No Sound 1/5
This has no sound (except the speech) No Music/No Fun/NO NOTHING!!!! Please fix the sound and update And put all the shows there is in the game!!!!
Fun games 3/5
We love these games. Would give 4 or 5 stars if you fix Daniel the tiger tea party game. Often you go to pour more tea and it doesn’t work.
The Let’s Go Luna games hurt my eyes 4/5
By Ami Onuki
I know I’m writing this on IOS, but anytime my sister tries to play Let’s Go Luna game on her Amazon tablet, like Chef Leo’s Crazy Kitchen and Andy’s Art Studio, the screen is repeatedly flashing! Who knows? Other kids who have Amazon Fire tablets might get a seizure thanks to the flashing screen. I hope you all find this helpful ^^
Doesn’t save progress 3/5
I loooooooooooooooove😻 this app! The thing is this app doesn’t save progress😡😪🥵! And I’m so sick of it 😠. I have to do the cases and sector 21 all over again in Odd Squad and anytime I refresh my I Pad and close it and open it back up again it doesn’t save progress!
Some games hang up 4/5
Our child loves this app and we love it too. Some of the games crash though. Recently, the Daniel Tiger Dress up game just stops working, for example. This is a problem for our toddler! Thanks for creating this great app. Overall, fantastic!
Disappointed with continually having to re-download games 3/5
It seems that the frustrations I have with this app are the same ones that parents were reviewing about a year ago - losing downloaded games at random and having to re-download. I have set the space allowance high on purpose to supposedly not have this happen, and yet whenever I have updated the app we lose games, which is super frustrating for my five year old and me as well, especially as we live in a remote place and don’t have the best internet access all the time. On top of this issue, the interface is such that when scrolling through the games my child often accidentally clicks them which begins the downloading process, which can not be stopped! We currently have over thirty games attempting to load which have been going nowhere for weeks. If I was able to at least pause some of the open downloads we might have some success but I have not found any way of doing this. My daughter and I loved this app at the start but it has become so frustrating she barely chooses to play on it now. If these issues were fixed, this app would be very highly rate in my opinion, but with the current issues, it’s only mediocre. If I’m missing something that fixes these problems, please let me know.
Only kids app we trust 5/5
Our son has very limited screen time, so we want to make his time count —that’s why we keep coming back to PBS Kids.
Most kids apps either have bad graphics (“They’re just kids! Why hire professional designers?!”), constant nagging prompts to buy other apps or upgrade, or they are just boring after the first 30 seconds and first $1.99.
The PBS Kids app enables us to set parental controls and hand over the phone for 5 minutes while our kid gets safe, well-made fun with his favorite characters in games he has the skills to succeed at.
I am continually impressed by the quality and quantity of games to pick from in this one app. Just set a reasonable download cache (I picked 1.3gb) and let him pick what looks interesting.
The best part is we have no concerns about PBS stealing our personal data, eavesdropping, or otherwise abusing our trust.
Some games have lots of glitches or they don’t work. I’m too angry to say anything else.
Worst app ever 1/5

By smart unicorn9273
I love the game I was playing but when I download those game it disappeared and I’m disappointed about it
You should make a new video
Love the app, but... 3/5
It crashes/freezes CONSTANTLY. Every 10-20 minutes, I have to force quit the app. At least my toddler is learning how to bring up the force quit menu on her iPad.
They ripped off five nights at Freddy’s! 2/5
Don’t buy this!
Great free app! 5/5
By Jen Briz
My 4 year old son loves this app and can always find new games to play. It keeps his attention and he learns which this momma appreciates.
The Sesame Street game “Show me the Cookies” has a glitch. There is a part of the game where you have to match things that go together (bee to hive, frog to lily pad, etc). We have tried this game on two different phones but every time the picture won’t let you drag it. As soon as you move it, it goes to the middle picture on the right. Over and over again. Just wanted you to know. Aside from that we haven’t had any issues. Thanks!
Never plays games 3/5
I’ve had this app on an android phone and while it sometimes takes time to load a game it works. Not the case for our iPad. It never loads any game. Ever. Sad because it is my child’s favorite app. Please fix issues so kids can enjoy this App on all phone models.
Ready jet go and I can’t get in 1/5
Mindy moon ball I can’t play it. I can’t get in the pbskids app
Great with one small problem 4/5
My daughter LOVES this app. The game choices are great and love that she can still play in the car when we don’t have WiFi. Would have given 5 stars but many times the games that we have “downloaded” aren’t there anymore and need to be re-downloded which is kinda weird and obviously not ideal because that takes more time and has to be done somewhere we have WiFi. Other then that bug the app is great
The worst 1/5
By mudkip mistro
I know your trying to get kid appropriate videos on here but you even block videos that kids could watch on kids YouTube . What do you think that every one on here can only comprehend number 1- 10 well I think you should do whatever you do to decide what videos get on kid YouTube and do it over again!!! 😡😡😡😡
I like the idea of this app but operation of this is terrible. It is so slow, constantly crashes and also freezes and locks the iPad screen (brand new iPad).
By mr blue lll
Put Thomas back!!!
Wish I could have given 0 stars 😡🤬 1/5
I’m having trouble the same kind of problem as Dailian guy. I download apps I was trying to get all of them on the app and I download some bug the more I download it keeps making me re download them again every time and it’s getting my kid frustrated that she can’t have all of them available at once so when she’s bored she can pick from all of them which one she wants to play. Please fix ASAP
