Auto Renewal without warning SCAM

My child got disinterested in the programs. However, my subscription was renewed automatically, without any email warning that renewal was due. I consider this a SCAM and unethical business practice, despite what Tappity might say about "my personal responsibility" for payment records and practice. BEWARE THIS SCAM!

Is It Any Good?

With an energetic, goofy vibe, this is a great choice for kids who are curious in all things STEM, but don't want to take things too seriously. K-5 Science for Kids - Tappity will capture those in that certain sweet spot where they're able to understand moderate science concepts, but still appreciate a good dose of silliness. It's fun, interactive, and educational.

Unfortunately, it's not perfect. One of the biggest downsides is that voting/trivia in the live lessons seems to be glitchy -- but they are a small annoyance in an otherwise positive experience. The subscription fee isn't trivial, so you'll want to try the free content with your kids to make sure it's a good fit before diving in. That said, this would be a wonderful addition to a homeschool/unschool curriculum, and for families with kids who never stop asking, "Why?"

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
