  • Great! 5/5

    This app is helpful for my baby cousins!

    Don't change the color of the app anymore! My little brother has been crying to me for days on end because he thinks his favorite game got deleted because it's no longer a blue color!
  • Won't download 1/5

  • Anytime is learning time! 5/5

    By mrsplacedsoul
    A great tool for parents of young children. You can turn any setting into a fun learning experience!
  • No sound 1/5

    By BeaApps
    No volume on app. I looked for a way to change it in settings but couldn't find a way. Very disappointing. It works on my phone but not on my iPad.

    By Aukaiz_Candy
    Every time I open the app all it does is stay on the front page and does NOTHING!!
  • Sound 3/5

    By Clang
    Did anyone's app sound stop working? This was an awesome app until that happened. I even try to uninstall it
  • Good 4/5

    By Khuynh322
    Awesome for kids
  • Too "pushy" 1/5

    By Hooter939
    The app was fun for my daughter but I get alerts from it EVERY day. More alerts from this app than from the App Store with updates for every other app we have. And no way to opt out of them. It's so annoying I'm deleting the app and cutting my losses. Yes, it's a fun app with lots of variety but its like the cashier doing 50 different add-on sales. "Do you have our credit card?" "Would you like to hear about it?" "But it will save you 15%!" "Are you SURE?" They hook the children and use them to advertise to parents. No thanks.
  • Did they even do user testing? 1/5

    By @sumpepandwong
    I'm all for parent participation but the unnecessary text is a barrier for children's natural instinct to explore, play and learn. iPad apps designed for preschoolers with or without parent participation should respect basic child development and this app doesn't do that. Parents should facilitate play and learning, not control it. If they did any sort of user testing they would have found out there are way too many steps a child has to take in order to play a game. The app defies all design advice from the Cooney center research. Why PBS why? Why associate your high-quality brand with such a horrible designed app that doesn't respect a child's right to explore and learn. I hate the god awful computer generated voice too. Deleting app immediately.
  • Awesome!!! 5/5

    By SconeDawg1
    From my 2 yr. old to my 7 yr. old emery loves this wonderful game!
  • Fun 4/5

    By Airheadica84
    Good ideas and fun little games for my 3 year old
  • Learning WITH an adult 4/5

    By chelsette
    What the previous reviewer failed to realize is that this app is intended to be used by a child WITH a parent or other adult. Yes, there is text and steps, but if used with an adult, as intended, this is an excellent app. As an ELL teacher, I can use this app with my students and assess specific language knowledge, such as prepositions, shapes, following one step directions, etc.
  • Fitkidsofswok 5/5

    How cool is this! Our coalition is all about creating a healthier community and what a great tool this is to support that. Thank you PBS!
