I don’t know why I have not shared PBS Kids video app. Maybe because we’ve been using it too much, I have assumed everyone should know about it. But if you don’t know about the app, it is a free app from PBS Kids. With the app, kids can watch any of the PBS Kids videos from the top PBS Kids and PBS Kids Go television series. Some of the shows included in the app: Curious George, The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That, Dinosaur Train, SUPER WHY!, Sesame Street and Wild Kratts. There are more than 1,000 videos from nearly twenty top PBS Kids shows. Due to license agreement, it is only available in the USA. It requires WiFi or 3G connection to play the videos.
App features from the App Store:
Child-Safe: The app provides a safe, child-friendly viewing experience for all ages. Kids can easily browse and watch videos at home, on the road, or anywhere with a 3G or WiFi connection.
New Videos Every Week: Every week, the app will introduce your child to a new “Weekly Pick,” a set of fun educational videos that will engage him or her in reading, science, math and more.
Parent Resources: The app also includes features that parents can access by sliding the parents’ “i-bar” to the right:
- Access your local PBS station TV schedule.
- Tap the heart icon to add a show to your child’s favorites list.
- Share videos via email, Facebook or Twitter.
- Learn more about a TV series, such as intended age and learning goals.
- Download related PBS KIDS apps.
- Buy shows from iTunes or PBS KIDS Shop.
I found it come very handy during travel time. Kids get to watch their favorite shows just like at home, and all the shows are educational and entertaining.
