Continues to be the best app for toddler


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.

Frustrated beyond hope


I have been a subscriber for almost a year and very recently have been unable to access games for my child - these games are shown as being locked and requiring a subscription (which I have). There is no online support for this app, only an FAQ site with an email address on a separate webpage. When trying to troubleshoot I tried to re-subscribe with no success (told me I'm already a subscriber which I already knew) and also deleted and reinstalled the app with similar results. The fact that I've paid almost $90 over the past 11 months and these issues exist disgusts me. I just canceled my subscription and recommend anybody encountering similar issues to do the same ASAP. Also recommend anybody else considering this app to walk away. Extremely frustrating experience - these guys will take your money but not support you when issues arise.

A Must Get!


This is the best app for children. It is always changing and it is all educational. My daughter is 2 1/2 and she loves it! I know that she will be learning and expressing herself without seeing things that are not age appropriate. It is worth the money and if you can't afford it have someone (grandparent, relative, or friend) get it for you (instead of another stuffed animal or shirt). Happy learning and growing!!
