Does it take more soap to wash a pig or a cow? How far can a pterodactyl fly? How many pitchers of water do you need to fill a bathtub?
In PBS KIDS Measure Up!, children ages 3 to 5 learn early math concepts focused on length, width, capacity, and weight while going on an adventure through Treetop City, Magma Peak, and Crystal Caves. Joined by their favorite PBS KIDS characters from Dinosaur Train, Peg + Cat, and Sid the Science Kid, children can also collect rewards and unlock digital toys as they play. At the same time, caregivers can monitor and expand upon what their child is learning using a free companion app: PBS KIDS Super Vision™.
Specific features of Measure Up! include:
*19 unique measuring games
*10 measurement-focused video clips
*Sticker books featuring favorite PBS KIDS characters
*Rewards for completion of tasks
*Embedded challenges and reports to help parents and caregivers monitor kids’ progress
*Ability to track your child's progress using the PBS KIDS Super Vision companion app. (Read more about Super Vision below.)
*Note: The PBS KIDS Super Vision app is a smartphone-based app that enables parents to be aware of what their child is playing and watching in the Measure Up! app by providing summaries of games played, videos watched, and math skills covered in the games and videos. It also provides tips and related activity ideas to extend learning into daily activities and family time.

Ratings and Reviews
Sure to disappoint your child!
PBS kids makes great concert. The graphics, sound, story are good. The programming that makes the app work is terrible. It doesn't reliability keep track of accomplishments and statute island and your statues randomly disappear.
My child was very disappointed that we could only earn the 'sid' statue, even though we both completed all the missions together several times. My child is sad and confused as to why after several program freezes (had to restart the app each time) statue island and sid are gone.
This runs like a typical Microsoft windows program from the 1990s. Reward good apps with your money and avoid this dumpster fire.
Good but could have more
This is cute and entertaining but I hope they will add more places to visit since there are only a few. Also this version does not save my 6 year olds progress or his sticker displays which frustrates him!
The app does not track the progress god because I lost two statues because it didn't keep good track!!!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
