Cancel my curious George subscription


So worth the money  VallyKurl  4 star

My 2 year old son loves this app and so do I! I was hesitant to sign up for the free trial, just because I figured I could find something else educational for free without the hassle... Nahhh. My son was obsessed with watching those videos of kids opening toys on YouTube, I wasn’t a fan of that. I’m happy I found an alternative that’s teaching him cool stuff as well as keeping him just as engaged as the other option. Games, books, songs, and videos that are all educational! The only reason I have given it 4 stars is because of the offline content. There are only games and books available to download, I wish the videos could be available as well... especially if I’m paying for it. It’s still the bomb though, seriously, b o m b, get it.


Great educational app  Jetiii7  5 star

It was good for a minute  angry mema  3 star

Paying for everything to stay locked with no resolution and no one to help.... This is B.S


Do NOT subscribe to this. Very very hard to unsubscribe.  Roy6435652  1 star

We tested the free apps and games and were impressed. They emailed and offered us to subscribe not using the app at a discounted rate. Once you get paid for content you realize it's pretty poor quality. And even worse it's proved almost impossible to unsubscribe. You have to call to cancel and they keep saying different things and then not unsubscribe get you. Hours and hours on the phone. And still stuck with this rubbish.


Rip off.....  ckdorsey  1 star

Horrible almost every thing on there you need to be a subscriber just horrible........


Frustrated beyond hope  Mjkl14590824  1 star

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.

🤔 confused and disappointed

Foul language  🤔 confused and disappointed  1 star

This app is fantastic until it spews foul language. While playing Arthur Build a Story my cousins heard the pirate say "Holy Smokes" this is not acceptable for children


Why do I need a login  bquil  1 star

I deleted this app before running it. It requires birthdays and logins for a toddler game. No thanks

Not great  Dr. Ock  2 star

Nice games but they make it very hard to unsubscribe from the free trial. Beware!


Not free  luvmy3kids  1 star

The free version only lets you do one thing.

Mover and a Shaker

Keeps The Child's Mind Learning  Mover and a Shaker  4 star

This is a great app it keeps children occupy especially if they're using the phone already. It's much different than watching YouTube videos because it stimulates activity vocabulary thinking processes and presents imagery they need to flourish. Of course nothing can take the place of a parent but once they get the hang of it , it's a great way to occupy time, play and learn.


Great content  Dnutmegs  4 star

Cons: 1. Needs a code entered to LEAVE the app. I don't like trying to jump after my child when my hands are full or dirty to prevent him from deleting apps or posting things on fb etc. 2. Need an option to lock in or out certain content. There are some days that I only allow books in the app. Even if I'm reading them, kids are quick. See above. 3. The cost 4. Hours logged seemed off... Pros 1. FULL children's books and has games 2. Every book has an OPTION of audio and highlighted text.


3 year old loves it  PantPant2  5 star

This is a great app with an endless supply of new games and short videos and stories. My just turned 3 year old loves it. Some of the games and educational videos are a bit too old for him, but most of it is just right.


Freemium  Ramplo  2 star

Just want something my nephew can play with once or twice a month, I refuse to subscribe.
