  • Foul language

    By 🤔 confused and disappointed
    This app is fantastic until it spews foul language. While playing Arthur Build a Story my cousins heard the pirate say "Holy Smokes" this is not acceptable for children
  • Fun for my Grandson

    By Brave Thistle
    My grandson loves the different challenges. My only issue is that i have not been able to have it transfer from IPad to my iPhone.
  • Really good

    By Me&me111
    Has a lot of activities and our daughter really enjoys it.
  • Continues to be the best app for toddler

    By iamowl
    My (now 3yr old) loves learning and we make sure her screen time is educational. We had been gifted a year long membership to ABC Mouse by grandma thanks to their commercials but it was so dated and boring, and the navigation wasn't intuitive. I wish I had just asked for Curious World instead! For the price of Netflix I have content that is always changing, and so many formats that are fun and engaging for my child. After she is ready for bed we have a deal where she can "read" a few stories while I get a chance to get ready, and she loves that! I recommend this app to new parents and friends a lot, and appreciate the work that must have gone into creating so much quality at a reasonable price.
  • Just downloaded today...

    Just downloaded the full version today and my four year old noticed some of the games will not open. It gets to the play screen and will not go past this point. Going to try to reinstall. The ones that do work are awesome!
  • 4 year old loves it

    By artemisnee
    My 4 year old has had this app for over a year and it's grown with him and he still loves it. I love that he learns so much when using it.
  • Money well spent!

    By 3y/o toddler boy's mom
    I purchased a year subscription to ABC mouse and I was completely let down, so I only purchased the monthly subscription. I regret not purchasing the year!! GREAT APP!!! So many activities and books! I am so happy!!! This app is AMAZING!!!
  • Super Educational

    By Scuttle13
    My kid loves this app and so do I! Recommended for all!
  • Impossible to cancel

    By LarryC - PM
    The app directs you to call, you sit on hold for 10 min, the Rep asks for more info from you to prob sell somewhere else, then finally tells you to go thru phone settings to cancel the subscription. Overpriced and way too complicated to manage your account.
