  • Learning WITH an adult Mar 20, 2013

    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.

    It can help children to do math, letter writing, etc. It can also be in Español either too.

    I am a speech language pathologist and have been using your app for years. This new version of ‘Playground’ only shows and tells the child player of spatial directions. In the earlier version of this app, the child was able to take a balloon and place it under , over, inside, etc. The earlier version provided more learning opportunities to identify and actually express directions. I’m disappointed you changed this part of the game.

    So easy to navigate that my little one can do it all on his own. Great developmental skills to be learnt using this app.
  • The Spanish version is a little glitchy Dec 21, 2019

    By Trainer Fabri
    The game is basic and it seems to have potential but the Spanish is glitchy. For example when feeding the monkey it says i am feeding the Prairie dog or when finding Dell it mentions Dee instead. But it randomly does this Thats why i am saying it’s a glitch. I am trying to get my kid to learn Spanish so if these small glitches could be fix it would be great.

  • Did they even do user testing? Mar 21, 2013

    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.

  • Too "pushy" May 3, 2013

    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.
