    Sometimes, you cannot avoid bringing your 4-year-old to the library. Having to pick up a book or do 30 minutes of research can quickly turn into a nightmare. Keep your child amused with a collection of quiet, educational games that work even if the wifi in the library is patchy.

    This app combines games with educational tools for children to make learning more fun and engaging, and it features a wide variety of games aimed at kids aged 2-7, some of which will encourage your child to go outside and explore.

  • Wonderful, but last update... Jun 27, 2018

    By Dalianguy
    My son and I play these games together regularly. He loves them, they give us lots of new things to interact over, and they have seeded some new interests for him. Thanks to Cookie Creator, for example, my boy got very interested in all of the measurements and following instructions in recipes and even makes some predictions about the kinds of cookies we’re making based on how much of the ingredients we use. The good games are really good, engaging, and help to develop key skills, and most of the games are good. Everything was fine until the last update. We were playing one of the games yesterday, and he wanted to switch to another, but all but four of the games we had downloaded had disappeared, including the one we had just been playing. (We generally play offline, even when a network is available, to keep things limited to the age-appropriate games I have selected for download.) Later, when I got back online to download the games again, it clearly has reset the storage limit, and I can’t for the life of me find the “grown-ups” settings menu to set it back. After about ten minutes, it also changed my home PBS station, which I had previously set in settings—perhaps because I am on the road?

  • 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.

    If I could rate it higher I would. My son is 3 and has been using this app for over a year. It is great, user friendly, and offers a wide veriety of games. It's easy enough for him to use without help and the fact that there are no ads make it blissful for me. The games are mostly very educational and I feel they have played a role in his quick development. We love it!
  • 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.
  • 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.

    My 3-year-old loves these games, and I like that they are free and educational. My kid uses my old phone, and there are a lot of glitches, but they can usually be solved by uninstalling and reinstalling the game. This is annoying to me, but these games are great and free, so I can't complain too much.

  • 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

    Both my kids love this game... Not sure what happened to it tho because now it don't show all the games like it use to. It will only show the games they downloaded. Which is not very many... It use to show the daily games and all the others with the option to download and now it doesn't. What did you guys do to the app??? My kids are very upset cause this is their favorite gaming app. Please solve this problem... I will gladly rate this again once it's working again. Thanks...

    This is my 3 year old son's favorite app. He uses it all the time and we normally love it. But for the past 2 days, every time he tries to exit a game to play another, which- let's be real- can happen every 10 seconds because he's 3, the app freezes. It just stays on that hot pink loading screen without changing while I have a toddler on the verge of meltdown because he wants to play and can't. Fix the issue and the app is a solid 4 stars. (Because not all the games are always available.)
  • Could be so much better Jan 6, 2019

    By Yourfucjingmother
    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.

  • Great free app! Feb 2, 2019

    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!

  • 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!
  • Good;multiple games have multiple problems Apr 7, 2020

    By BoogerPie
    I love this game but it has A LOT of problems. Odd Squad: In this game, sound is important. Without it, you can hardly get the instructions. However, this section often has the noise almost fuzzy, meaning that it becomes annoying, so I either mute it or turn it down till I can hardly hear it. And on the last area of Sector 21, almost all of the area that you couldn’t walk on was red instead of showing the trees and rocks. And on both that area AND some of the areas before that one it didn’t show the animal, a thing on that level, something else, or a mix between!

  • Generally well done Aug 15, 2021

    By NicknameTaken7
    Not sure when it happened, but now the levels in the rover builder game don’t unlock after completing. My child has a fit when he has to restart each time. There are a few games that freeze and annoy my child and daddy has to fix it, but on the whole very appropriate and engaging activities for my youngest child. I wish the grown up settings were lockable or a separate app. That one child keeps clearing or reducing the space and wiping the downloaded games; then has a fit they are all gone. Which takes me about a half hour to redownload.

    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.

    This game has 2 problems: 1: freezing 2: Donkey’s Froyo Stand I’ll start with freezing first. So, I got this game for my 3 year old brother. He was playing Arthur’s Top 20 when all of a sudden the app froze. Of course, it went back to normal after a few seconds, but I’d still like it to not freeze at all. It also froze when we were exiting a game, I had to close the tab and go back to the app. Please fix this freezing thing. Ok, and my second problem is Donkey’s Froyo Stand. My brother was playing it, and it was the same order every time! That’ll definitely get plain and boring. Overall, this app is good. It’s very educational and fun. My brother actually laughs when he loses a game. You know why? Because when you lose a game on this app, they don’t make it sad and boring, they make it funny and enjoyable. Of course, it can get a bit annoying when he loses purposefully 😂 but hey who cares? I love PBS, I love their TV, and their contests and their apps. I actually joined the PBS kids Nebraska writing competition. Anywho, please fix this freezing problem. And please make it so that every froyo order is different while playing Donkey’s Froyo stand. Thank you for taking the time to read this review! 😊

    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 🙄🙄

    I got this for myself when I was little (like maybe 4 years old) and 6 years later I still have it! It’s usually because I get bored and have nothing else to do, so it takes care of my boredom, but there are issues! I downloaded a game and when it looked like it downloaded, it actually wasn’t downloaded! I had to download it again! Another issue is when I played a game, like Agent Checkup, form Odd Squad, it would freeze! I am still a kid and really enjoy this app, but I think you need to fix this! Maybe I’ll even have this when I’m older! I enjoy the game and it’s very fun! My little brother likes it to! I’ll probably have this game for a long time! I also watch the pbs kids videos! I also learned a lot when I was young with this game! That’s pretty much it and thanks for reading! 👋👍🙂
  • Great games but very buggy and freezes constantly Apr 13, 2019

    By Marmotteface
    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.

    This is my 3 year old son's favorite app. He uses it all the time and we normally love it. But for the past 2 days, every time he tries to exit a game to play another, which- let's be real- can happen every 10 seconds because he's 3, the app freezes. It just stays on that hot pink loading screen without changing while I have a toddler on the verge of meltdown because he wants to play and can't. Fix the issue and the app is a solid 4 stars. (Because not all the games are always available.)
  • Could be so much better Jan 6, 2019

    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

    Why can this app only be retrieved from the game launcher? I would like to just have a bubble file for my child to be able to get their PBS app from.

    Both my kids love this game... Not sure what happened to it tho because now it don't show all the games like it use to. It will only show the games they downloaded. Which is not very many... It use to show the daily games and all the others with the option to download and now it doesn't. What did you guys do to the app??? My kids are very upset cause this is their favorite gaming app. Please solve this problem... I will gladly rate this again once it's working again. Thanks...

    App doest work on my Samsung tablet anymore. Something with the new update. We click on the app and the only thing visible is 3 games no characters, no other games or options. Definitely needs to be fixed.

    The app doesn't even work! Everything you click on won't load when using it for ipad. Pointless!
  • 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.
