  • 4 year old loves it

    By artemisnee
    My 4 year old has had this app for over a year and it's grown with him and he still loves it. I love that he learns so much when using it.
  • Money well spent!

    By 3y/o toddler boy's mom
    I purchased a year subscription to ABC mouse and I was completely let down, so I only purchased the monthly subscription. I regret not purchasing the year!! GREAT APP!!! So many activities and books! I am so happy!!! This app is AMAZING!!!
  • Super Educational

    By Scuttle13
    My kid loves this app and so do I! Recommended for all!
  • Impossible to cancel

    By LarryC - PM
    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

    Lots of different things available, for a price
  • A Must Get!

    By LLewis48442
    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!

    By Thisquinn
    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

    By Bi8c1vic
    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!

    By KatWamp
    Awesome learning game
  • Took it to Europe and worked great!

    By nooraddi219
    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
