User Reviews for PBS KIDS Games

Disappointed with continually having to re-download games

It seems that the frustrations I have with this app are the same ones that parents were reviewing about a year ago - losing downloaded games at random and having to re-download. I have set the space allowance high on purpose to supposedly not have this happen, and yet whenever I have updated the app we lose games, which is super frustrating for my five year old and me as well, especially as we live in a remote place and don’t have the best internet access all the time. On top of this issue, the interface is such that when scrolling through the games my child often accidentally clicks them which begins the downloading process, which can not be stopped! We currently have over thirty games attempting to load which have been going nowhere for weeks. If I was able to at least pause some of the open downloads we might have some success but I have not found any way of doing this. My daughter and I loved this app at the start but it has become so frustrating she barely chooses to play on it now. If these issues were fixed, this app would be very highly rate in my opinion, but with the current issues, it’s only mediocre. If I’m missing something that fixes these problems, please let me know.

Please read this

This game has 2 problems: 1: freezing 2: Donkey’s Froyo StandI’ll start with freezing first. So, I got this game for my 3 year old brother. He was playing Arthur’s Top 20 when all of a sudden the app froze. Of course, it went back to normal after a few seconds, but I’d still like it to not freeze at all. It also froze when we were exiting a game, I had to close the tab and go back to the app. Please fix this freezing thing.Ok, and my second problem is Donkey’s Froyo Stand. My brother was playing it, and it was the same order every time! That’ll definitely get plain and boring. Overall, this app is good. It’s very educational and fun. My brother actually laughs when he loses a game. You know why? Because when you lose a game on this app, they don’t make it sad and boring, they make it funny and enjoyable. Of course, it can get a bit annoying when he loses purposefully 😂 but hey who cares?I love PBS, I love their TV, and their contests and their apps. I actually joined the PBS kids Nebraska writing competition.Anywho, please fix this freezing problem. And please make it so that every froyo order is different while playing Donkey’s Froyo stand. Thank you for taking the time to read this review! 😊

Well for starters it’s not the best game but for young children it’s amazing I loaded this game for all my children and well and really all the young ones with crazy over it 😂😂I don’t not recommend this game for older children probably past the age of 7 The games are the best either some of them are fun. But mostly all the games are boring😴👎🏻 I mean I do you consider loading it if you have young children past the age of seven but mostly it’s not the best game I love all of the games well most of them😒 some of them can be very annoying and drive me crazy😡 it also freezes a lot which is very annoying😤😤 I mean overtime your kids will most likely get bored of it my kids only lasted about two months before they all deleted the app soooooo Great game find for a little kids but Meh fine I guess 🙄🙄

Wonderful, but last update...

My son and I play these games together regularly. He loves them, they give us lots of new things to interact over, and they have seeded some new interests for him. Thanks to Cookie Creator, for example, my boy got very interested in all of the measurements and following instructions in recipes and even makes some predictions about the kinds of cookies we’re making based on how much of the ingredients we use. The good games are really good, engaging, and help to develop key skills, and most of the games are good.Everything was fine until the last update. We were playing one of the games yesterday, and he wanted to switch to another, but all but four of the games we had downloaded had disappeared, including the one we had just been playing. (We generally play offline, even when a network is available, to keep things limited to the age-appropriate games I have selected for download.) Later, when I got back online to download the games again, it clearly has reset the storage limit, and I can’t for the life of me find the “grown-ups” settings menu to set it back. After about ten minutes, it also changed my home PBS station, which I had previously set in settings—perhaps because I am on the road?

Complicated for little ones to navigate

My son and I adore this app. I love that it is free, and I love the variety it has and the fact that it’s an app that can grow with him. I love that it is safe, and there are no ads or links that can take him anywhere I don’t want him to be. It’s so wonderful that it’s free, and I’m so grateful for that!! I haven’t found /any/ other app like it.But I have one tiny suggestion that will make it significantly better for us. There are so many games on this app, and a lot of them are meant for older kids. My phone is always connected to WiFi, and so when he plays by himself, he tends to download games that he just can’t understand, and then he gets stuck in them and frustrated. And so I was wondering if you could add a toggle switch on the grownups page, to toggle between “Show all games” and “show only downloaded games” on the home page. That way it will be easier for him to choose his own games and only play the ones he knows how to play, but when he gets a little older and gains more skills, I can see them all and choose new ones for him.5 stars, if someday there is that option.4 stars for now, because it’s just too hard for him to use.

14,000,000 kids are awaiting for a reboot.

I am 11 years old and need to tell you guys a little something. Back when I was 3, I found the game that would forever change my life. The best games out of all games, Kart Kingdom! I was a goddess at the game, with my user being Mcqueen321 who inspired a kart! A few years later, on a school day I came home from school to go on the kart kingdom website when I saw the horror! It said "Kart Kingdom shut down October 1,2020. Thank you for five great years!". I was so sad to the point where I wouldn't go outside and stay up for weeks at a time and I was even failing all my classes due to the shutdown of kart kingdom! My parents tried continuously to cheer me up but it never worked. And another year later I was a really bad person until my teacher told me to check pbs kids games. I saw a new kart kingdom! I was really excited until I saw it was only racing and got sad again. I gave it a try and felt a true taste of nostalgia with 3 main characters, but I was sad it wasn't full version where you got to customize your own character, decorate your own clanky caverns, comment on the blog, and so much more! Please reply I've spent hours making this review and please bring it back for the sake of 14,000,000 other kids and me.

I have just discovered this app from the PBS kids and I love it! I remember watching Sesame Street as a child. When I had children of my own I was weary of what they may be exposed to when they were going to be outside of our home. Equally I was concerned about television and what was going to be off limits for them also what I was comfortable with them watching especially when I might not be able to watch it with them in case they have questions etc.. Now here I am a Grandma in a world where there is nowhere that a person isn’t subject to social media and/the internet no matter how young or old. I am thankful for having PBS. They are always there helping to give a hand in the social education of all of us. I like that they do not push any specific views or opinions. They simply try to bring awareness of the world around you. I think they would be an excellent tool for everybody no matter their background to help in the development of a child to become responsible peaceful happy adults one day! Three generation and counting they have been an influence in my family’s raising children into becoming the best adult we could hope for! Praises to PBS!!

Wonderful app, with one suggestion.

I LOVE this app and so does my son. However, one feature I would request is the ability to reset a particular game. Clearing the local game storage from within the app does not fix all bugs.For instance, this most recent update included Rosie's Rules games. Awesome! My son is so excited for this show that he dances to the promotion trailers. So when the games came out, it's all he wants to play, specifically the slime game. But the game can dead end you by allowing you to run out of both money and ingredients, leaving my kid crying because he can't play the game any more. Exiting the game or app, force quitting, nothing fixes it. I wind up having to completely uninstall and reinstall the PBS Kids games app, it gets tiresome. So please guys! Maybe allow the game to reset entirely when you exit out of the game or the app. My only ever hiccup I've experienced, otherwise I recommend this to every single parent I know.

good but needs a few changes

It needs a few changes it’s been hard so I suppose you make it so it will have like the app downloads with games and apps and I suppose you make it download faster like taking 4 minutes or less and I suppose that you like make the games easier for little kids and a button where it says easy, hard and medium then all of the bad reports will turn into good reports I have one more change please make it so people will not have bad reports it makes me sad that the bad reports are kind of slowing down your business so if you make those changes people are going to love this app so much they would like to play it all the time so do those changes then no bad reports will send to you so do these few changes so everyone will love this app and wish that they never sent those bad reports so those will turn to good reports
