Ratings and Reviews
My 5 year old Loved it.
This is basically a beefed up video jukebox. Great for my 5 year old!
Seeing her practicing pronunciation with the the app is quite enjoyable. “Porridge? Porridge. Porridge? PORRIDGE!”
The movies are mostly cartoons. Not the highest quality, but still every bit as engaging.
Word games are fun for kids and adult.
Only about 10 or so free videos are included. The rest need to be purchased.
Need different game for each pack. Right now only 1 or 2.
A very high quality education App for the young ones!
