Functionality 5/5
Read More

Just when you launch the app, it browses a gallery of games, represented as colorful thumbnails with a title and a key hero. Each one of the games is dedicated to developing a specific skill or learning about moral values.

The games include:

  • Sand Art Spectacular.
  • Neighbor day.
  • Highlight Zone.
  • Spectacular Spelling Play.
  • Magical Rescue.
  • Jet's Planet Pinball.
  • Big Dig.
  • Corn Maze Craze.

And many others.

With those games, kids can learn the basics of:

  • Math: Chicken Coop.
  • Spelling and reading: Letter Dance Party.
  • Drawing: Nature Art Box.
  • Science: Mission Earth.

Besides they will learn about etiquette and making friends, practice focusing their attention, solve logical puzzles and also play with creativity.

On the right, there are pictures of PBS most iconic characters, including Daniel Tiger, Buddy from Dinosaur Train, Elmo, The Cat in the Hat, etc. By tapping on one of them, you'll browse games specifically hosted by that character and set in their imaginative universe. For example, if you tap on Elmo, Sesame Street games will be offered to you.

Design 5/5

PBS Kids Games has a colorful and juicy interface. It's quite laconic too since there are only a table, containing games and a list of characters.

At the very top, there's an interactive Let's Go Luna wheel, that represents the Earth with its most significant cultural landmarks: Big Ben, Chinese pagodas, Tower of Pisa, Russian Kremlin, etc.

Fonts, backgrounds and color palette are versatile and playful: they retain the goofy vibe so much appreciated by the children.

Usability 5/5

PBS Kids Games teaches a lot of valuable lessons: from practical skills to socially acceptable behavior. It features no banners or pop-up ads. The only things the app advertises are show premiers or new episodes release dates.

By far the biggest drawback of the app is that the games take a pretty long time to be loaded before they can be played.

As for the rest, the application is amazing for faster development of the vocabulary, memory, attention focus and logical/creative thinking. And especially helpful it may become during long family trips: the number of games is impressive, the app doesn't need a connection to function, and the children will have something to amuse themselves with. Getting educated simultaneously.

Cross-platform Use

The application is available for iOS and Android users only. Android version requires 93 MB of free space. Meanwhile, iOS takes only 60.3 MB. As for the contents and functionality - they are identical.

In-app Purchases

PBS Kids Games is absolutely free to download and features no additional purchases, microtransactions or commercials, apart from those that advertise the channel's own shows for kids.


This application is a real treasure for you if you have children. The variety of skills it teaches and 100% free status, along with full offline functionality, guarantees a good quality fun time for your kids. Productive fun time, to be exact.



By downloading PBS Kids Games app, you will show the magic of knowledge to your child.
