Curious World: Games, Videos, Books for Children Reviews

LarryC - PM

Impossible to cancel  LarryC - PM  1 star

The app directs you to call, you sit on hold for 10 min, the Rep asks for more info from you to prob sell somewhere else, then finally tells you to go thru phone settings to cancel the subscription. Overpriced and way too complicated to manage your account.


Good  rckngsans  5 star

Lots of different things available, for a price


A Must Get!  LLewis48442  5 star

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!!


Best App!  Thisquinn  5 star

We love using this app as part of bedtime routines. We read so many books that are too cute! The videos and games are also not traditional so even when he wants to play those, he's developing vocabulary.


Decent app horrible functionality  Bi8c1vic  1 star

I have paid for this app and it has to be the most frustrating thing to use. I have my child on an iPad and an ipod, this app will not allow me to access the app on both. It also has quite a few glitches...


Great!  KatWamp  4 star

Awesome learning game


Took it to Europe and worked great!  nooraddi219  5 star

I knew we'd be traveling outside the country for spring break so I downloaded all my kids favorite books and games ahead of times. App worked great on the plane without wifi and also worked without a hitch when we had internet at the hotel. This download function is a lifesaver while traveling


Curious George  JDW1135  1 star

App never works. my kids enjoyed it when it worked, but we have failed to delete and have been paying for something that never works.


It would be cool if it worked  Jessbeezie  2 star

My son likes it but every time we get to one part of the Arthur story, it literally just stops working. We can't go back or forward and have to exit out of the game completely and start over. There's only so much dressing of a bunny before my son gets bored.


Great  Mareveeeeeee  5 star



Good job  Xsav2  5 star

Good job


Great content - safe app  Mushi67  5 star

I like that the app is safe and provides a lot of stuff for my son to play with. I like that it's educational too.


False advertisement  Lt3kitt  1 star

Every single game says sorry can not watch try later? Really


Nope  BG050810  1 star

Almost everything we tried to play or look at got us an "oops that's not available right now" error. Tried several times. Glad I got a free trial because there's no way in the world I would pay for that.


Great learning content, good value  ReillyMoe17  5 star

Love the new version! Seems to be faster, and cool to have new offline mode. Plus they've added a ton of new games. Keeps my 4yo busy and learning!


Sorry George  Haydude  1 star

Very expensive - Not worth the money


O M G  Mewzishn  1 star

Look how much they charge for this and it barely works! Deleted, will never buy from them again.


Great app. . . But  tinkbutt  4 star

The app seems to crash a lot and my only other eh about the app is that I'd like to be able to favorite a book or anyone easier! We are homeschoolers so I like to plan books out and having to read the book first to save it takes up too much time. But other than that I LOVE this app! Great resource for fun and learning.


Great App  wilmerguevara  5 star

Very helpful tool for my child

Unhappy user maxc

Cost how much?  Unhappy user maxc  1 star

Monthly subscription discounted price of $9.99 Um, you do know Netflix cost that and has WAY more content and far better options and features right. And all you are doing is putting up already out there content, just in a kind of nifty package, but for sure nothing special. Thanks but no thanks and never.
