Good idea, poor execution.


For an app meant for small children, this needs a lot of work. Some of the games are super cute but my toddler can't understand what is downloaded and what isn't, and many aren't appropriate for his age so I don't want him downloading games that are too difficult and wasting data. There should be a setting where little guys can only click games that moms and dads downloaded for them.

The other issue is, at first I couldn't even figure out how to get the games. If I accidentally click on one I can't turn off he download. It won't let me delete one app at a time either. Now I can click on them but it just sits there and won't load (months have gone by and no new games load).

Where did Thomas the tank engine go…


I love this app got my three year old. He has a blast and he is learning so many essential lessons for school before he enters into kindergarten. The Sesame Street Elmo games and puppy maze game are his favorites. However Thomas the tank engine was the initial reason I downloaded the application, and approximately two months ago it disappeared. My son was very upset that he could no longer play his favorite character anymore. Can someone tell me why Thomas and friends is no longer included on the PBS app?

Hi Caraheliza,
THOMAS & FRIENDS was removed from on-air schedules,, PBS KIDS streaming platforms and PBS KIDS apps on January 1. It was removed to accommodate for our new show premiering later this year, Pinkalicious and Peterriffic (Feb. 19th). We hope you continue to tune-in to PBS KIDS!

Great, but fatal flaw needs to be fixed


As others have said, the max storage in the grownups area resets itself back to 500MB arbitrarily, for no reason, no matter what you’ve saved it to. It’s a shame, because otherwise, it’s an excellent app. Developers - any plans to fix this bug? Jan 20, 2018, and bug just hit us again, deleting 20games, right in the middle of playing. We LOVE PBS, but are there no plans to fix this bug?? Thank you for the response - hoping the bug gets fixed soon!
