My son loves playtime island. I’m not keen on him being on my phone or tablet but I know with this he is completely safe and as ever with CBeebies as a whole, he is always learning something and wowing me with his knowledge. It’s fun, safe, entertaining and educating. Perfect if you have a child that is desperate to use your “grown up” devices. He loves having his own pet, think that is his favourite. Thankyou for a wonderful free app.

Update. My son has just been on to play and asked “where’s all my CBeebies friends gone?” I looked and there was no games on the island, I closed the app and opened again and they were back. Not sure if this helps others having problems?



App continually hangs and is very glitchy, not to mention the game freezing (often) mid way through before displaying a white screen. Some levels, even when complete, do not allow you to progress to the next level - very strange. All of this is very VERY frustrating for a young child. I have seen some comments suggesting the device being used needs ‘more memory’ or the ‘memory cleared’ to prevent the white screen - I can say I have this app on a variety of devices and all experience the same issues. We loved the old app (now unavailable - please bring it back) - sorry, but this new app is terrible. Whoever brought this to market before ironing out the (many) glitches really needs to get in to work early on Monday morning - there is much work to do. Disappointed family.
N.B. Bizarrely, even the review froze when trying to post. Oh dear.

Good game but extremely heavy on battery


My son loves playing this game but, in the 40 mins he’s just been on it, the battery of my iPhone 7+ has gone from 64% to 19% and the phone is roasting hot. Granted it’s a warm day but he was playing inside in a cool room. Something similar happened the previous times he has used it.
For info, I have no other apps open or running in the background and haven’t experienced this with anything else I have loaded on my phone. In fact, I’d go as far as saying my battery life is normally excellent, even when out and about.
