What's it about?
Kids can stream episodes of shows from the former Noggin network with a monthly subscription via NOGGIN - PRESCHOOL SHOWS AND EDUCATIONAL VIDEOS FOR KIDS. Shows include Little Bear, Franklin and Friends, Pocoyo, Robot and Monster, and more with dozens of episodes and multiple seasons of each show. The music section includes dozens of music videos from several shows, including Yo Gabba Gabba and The Fresh Beat Band. When kids finish a show, the next episode begins automatically, unless parents opt in the settings to automatically replay episodes. As of 2017 some shows contain embedded, interactive content so that, as kids watch, the show presents them with a task that moves the story along.
Is it any good?
Navigation is totally preschool-friendly, with an easy spinning wheel of shows for kids to choose from and large icons for each episode. Extensive content is included with multiple seasons of some shows on Noggin - preschool shows and educational videos for kids and new content promised to be added weekly. It's missing some of the parental controls that other kid-centered streaming apps include, such as the ability to set screen-time limits or restrict some programs. It also may be the only place to find some classic Nickelodeon favorites such as Blue's Clues and Ni Hao Kai-Lan. The addition of the interactive elements is a nice feature so that kids can take a more active role instead of only passively watching.
