Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (1):

This app puts tons of kid-friendly content in one place with easy parental controls. Although other video services may offer more content, they don't offer the young-kid-friendly features that PlayKids - Cartoons and game‪s has. Only kids' shows are included, most of them good-quality shows, and, even then, parents can restrict access to some shows in the settings. And, although it's a storage hog, the downloaded shows can be watched without an internet connection, making it a great travel accessory totally worth a month's subscription. The games could stand alone in a quality educational app, too. The video quality can be set to high or low (to save storage space), but the low quality is rather blurry. This one app alone could fully stock a preschooler's device.

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.
