    I have a suggestion in Aviva's creature power suit maker you should be able to test out your suit like actually run around or fly or swim and use any creature powers your suit has
  • Complicated for little ones to navigate Aug 7, 2020

    By Erica Welsh
    My son and I adore this app. I love that it is free, and I love the variety it has and the fact that it’s an app that can grow with him. I love that it is safe, and there are no ads or links that can take him anywhere I don’t want him to be. It’s so wonderful that it’s free, and I’m so grateful for that!! I haven’t found /any/ other app like it. But I have one tiny suggestion that will make it significantly better for us. There are so many games on this app, and a lot of them are meant for older kids. My phone is always connected to WiFi, and so when he plays by himself, he tends to download games that he just can’t understand, and then he gets stuck in them and frustrated. And so I was wondering if you could add a toggle switch on the grownups page, to toggle between “Show all games” and “show only downloaded games” on the home page. That way it will be easier for him to choose his own games and only play the ones he knows how to play, but when he gets a little older and gains more skills, I can see them all and choose new ones for him. 5 stars, if someday there is that option. 4 stars for now, because it’s just too hard for him to use.

  • Disappointed with continually having to re-download games Mar 2, 2019

    By adonutgirl
    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.

    my son LOVES this app, like that it doesn't require internet access so he can play with it in the car.

    This app is so close to being awesome, so I’m sad to give it such a low score. The app has a lot of really great individual games. But there are so many silly things holding back the app as a whole. 1. I can’t figure how to access adult settings. Other reviewers have mentioned some kind of menu for adults, but I can’t find it on iPhone or on iPad 2. I should be able to download every game if I want to. My iPad has plenty of unused storage space. Even if I can’t have or don’t need every game available from this app, I should at least be able to choose which one gets deleted to make more space. Right now the app automatically removes the one that was downloaded the longest time ago. There are some I want to keep available at all times! 3. The app should have the games sorted by age level. Some are for toddlers, some are for preschoolers, some for kindergarten, etc. I shouldn’t have to test every game so extensively to know if it’s appropriate

  • I hate this buggy app with the fire of a thousand suns Feb 6, 2021

    By Seanofw
    On some of our iOS devices, this app has no sound, and on some, it crashes frequently. It works (usually) on my wife’s iPhone, and (sometimes, crashing often) on my iPad, and (sometimes, crashing a lot) on my old iPhone; but not at all on my brand-new, fully-updated iPhone. Reboots, toggles, settings, reinstalls — nothing fixes it if it doesn’t work: Take it from a programmer that this app is just *buggy*. The sound issues are widely reported online and have been for *years*; I wouldn’t expect them to be fixed soon. If I could rate this app zero stars for all the screaming fits it’s produced in my household from preschoolers who don’t understand why their games won’t work, I absolutely would. Don’t install this; you’ll be glad you didn’t.

    So far there are hardly any games my grandson can play. Why aren't they all available. I have had to Go to the website instead. Why have the app?

    It is fun and you learn new stuff.And it is appropriate for kids. And it works for me in my device. And it has fun levels from different characters. And it is free and no in app purchases and no adds.

    Perfect set of games for young children. Some are of course better than others, but the best games keep my kids engaged. I have to be mindful of my phone, or the kids will run off with it taunting me and opening this app.

  • No sound on iPad app Jan 13, 2021

    By NOS2468
    A while ago the app worked great. Now I can hear a ding when a game downloads, but NO sound within the app. Works ok on iPhone but NOT the iPad. Update: Received the following from the developer and it works! “Hello, and thank you for your review! We are aware of a change on iOS devices that affects sound in our games, and we are working towards a resolution as fast as we can. We have found that toggling 'Silent Mode' or 'Mute' may temporarily resolve some users' issues. Some iOS devices have a small switch on the side or top edge, which can toggle this mode. Toggle the switch to unmute audio. If your device does not have a physical switch that controls this mode, you can find this toggle in Control Center. For older iPads, swipe up from the bottom of the home screen. For newer iPads, swipe down from the top-right corner. Once the Control Center appears, find and tap the bell icon to unmute audio.”

  • Good but imperfect Apr 10, 2019

    By JacquieBulla
    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.

  • Fun Games for young children thoughmany bugs Feb 12, 2021

    By Val8780
    My son has been loving playing games in this app since pre-k. Over the past couple of months, we have tried updating the app but no matter what we try, we cannot get any sound to play in the games. We have tried a few games and nothing works. Sometimes the scroll on the right side of the screen sticks so we cannot select different shows either. I would have loved to leave feedback within the app instead of in the app store but could not find a any place to leeave feedback. Once these issues are addressed, we would love to come back and play our favorite games again! Aside from these bugs, I highly recommend this app for your child!

    I would give it 5 stars, but any games on the app that you try to download just don't stay downloaded. You have to redownload every time you close it and go back in, losing progress. It's a giant hassle, and needs to be fixed.
  • good but needs a few changes May 28, 2018

    By Kennedy F.
    It needs a few changes it’s been hard so I suppose you make it so it will have like the app downloads with games and apps and I suppose you make it download faster like taking 4 minutes or less and I suppose that you like make the games easier for little kids and a button where it says easy, hard and medium then all of the bad reports will turn into good reports I have one more change please make it so people will not have bad reports it makes me sad that the bad reports are kind of slowing down your business so if you make those changes people are going to love this app so much they would like to play it all the time so do those changes then no bad reports will send to you so do these few changes so everyone will love this app and wish that they never sent those bad reports so those will turn to good reports

  • Poorly designed game queue Mar 26, 2020

    By OandOmamaSC
    My kids love the PBS apps but this one (Games) has one huge frustration. Maybe older kids can pace themselves on loading games but my littles don't understand that the one they chose last will have to wait for the 15 (or however many) others they clicked first to load. It either needs to not let them choose a new one until the last one gets done OR allows the user to pause or end a game from loading. That way when they see one they'd rather play, they aren't stuck waiting on games they no longer want. It'd also help if you knew which game was next to load. I've even closed the app and reopened hoping we could start the "load queue" over but it remembers and resumes with the long line of games. Once the games load it's a great app! My two just rarely wait around for it.

    Well for starters it’s not the best game but for young children it’s amazing I loaded this game for all my children and well and really all the young ones with crazy over it 😂😂 I don’t not recommend this game for older children probably past the age of 7 The games are the best either some of them are fun. But mostly all the games are boring😴👎🏻 I mean I do you consider loading it if you have young children past the age of seven but mostly it’s not the best game I love all of the games well most of them😒 some of them can be very annoying and drive me crazy😡 it also freezes a lot which is very annoying😤😤 I mean overtime your kids will most likely get bored of it my kids only lasted about two months before they all deleted the app soooooo Great game find for a little kids but Meh fine I guess 🙄🙄
