    I’m a retired teacher and a mom, and I have not found a better program than Marco Polo. My tenant’s preschool age daughter asks for it by name. We tried a lot of free apps, to see what we liked. I wouldn’t give any of them more than one star (at best). Marco Polo is excellent for preschool through primary grades. It is an flexible, highly visual program that can be adapted to an individual’s needs. It can be used for introducing or reviewing both verbal and pre-reading/reading skills leading to mastery of foundational skills (patterns/memory/phonics/vocabulary). It introduces children to a wide variety of non fiction topics, thus supporting comprehension. It is a high interest program that appeals to children. And, like all excellent programs, the teacher in me suggests that parents use it together with their children, because one thing always leads to another! 🙂
  • Just purchase for one month!

    My son truly enjoyed the content. Not as much pushed out as I would have liked but it entertained him and taught him a few things. However, now that I have disconnected from the service we cannot access anything that I paid for over the 10+ month subscription I had. Bottom line.... purchase for one month out of the year disconnect and wait another few months to subscribe again.

    Please advise on how to cancel free trial. Every time I try to access my account with you in order to cancel, I get message that “can’t connect to App Store.” Just want to cancel BEFORE you bill me.

    Here’s the thing. I’m not anti-vaccine/vaccination, but I also don’t think promoting it belongs in a kids educational app. It’s a slippery slope. Sticking to things like physics, zoology, climate, etc should be the focus here. Otherwise, it really comes across as pushing an agenda that is already pushed all over the place. What’s next? Kids need melatonin supplements at bedtime? Kids have to eat dairy for strong bones? Fluoride needed for dental health? I don’t actually care what people think about any of those topics, but you’re blurring the line between educating on applied/natural science vs industrial science. Market those things to adults who can make up their own minds about such things, but not to kids... that’s called propaganda.

    Downloaded this app to work with my nieces and nephews and ended up learning as much as them about a variety of topics!!!
  • Good content but keeps crashing

    By AlCan2
    The crashing issues is Specific to an older iPad, but we don’t have this problem with any other apps. I’m going to keep trying to make it work, but it is a real attention breaker for the kid.
  • Left waiting too long

    I’m very very disappointed by this app. My 4 year old son loves it and has learned a lot from it but it probably only loads 20% if the time we try playing. It’s a bummer, let’s him down and is a waste of money.
  • Great learning tool!

    We have finally found a EDUCATIONAL app that makes them critically think. My kids wanna know more and love the way the classes challenge them. They WANT to read, they WANT to investigate.
  • Highly Recommended and worth spending!!!

    By LOBPhila
    You apps has positive significant learning effect on my daughter by just using it for the first time. She never bored, and she learned more faster than I expected. I tried some apps and paid much but yours is way far worth spending and helpful, knowing it's my daughter's first time to use it. What’s more I am just on the free trial period. In addition, what caught my full attention is your speed response 24/7 when I ask something related to the apps.

  • Our top kids app, hands down

    By LevinIvan1000
    We’ve had a subscription to MarcoPolo World School for over a year now and still love it. Our son had just turned three when we first started with MarcoPolo and he still uses the app regularly. They add new content frequently and I am guessing that it will keep his interest for a number of years going forward. The app has short science video-lessons on a variety of topics such as ecosystems (oceans, forests, the Arctic, etc.), weather, human body, dinosaurs and vehicles. The videos are entertaining for adults as well and help me to keep up with all the information my son is absorbing. The games are also absorbing and cover basic math, reading and writing skills. Some of my favorite lessons are the music videos (currently there are three in the ocean module). The songs are catchy and clever. My son always sings the clean-up song when he needs to pick up his toys. There is also the artroom with coloring and drawing sections as well as videos on a variety of creative projects. At first, I felt that the supplies for them were too many and too specific (like googly eyes and glitter glue). But our son has spent a lot of times crafting the projects and now is using the supplies and techniques he learned from the app to make up his own projects. So they turned out worth the investment. If you have a young child, they will definitely need a lot of adult assistance with these projects though. One time when their content came a day later than advertised, my son had been checking for new lessons all day. Because of his disappointment I decided to provide that feedback to MarcoPolo World School. I was impressed with the level of customer service when someone got back to me within the hour well after business hours (especially for London where they are based) and clarified the nature of the delay. (The videos were up early next morning.) If you want to see the level of quality of the app and don’t want to spend money, check out MarcoPolo Ocean or Arctic, they are free and are available in a lot of different languages.

    Why don’t you make a full version without the supscription? It would also be useful to use it for 6th graders like me.

    My child went crying and bored as I signed up for free trial.i was frustrated to see the difference between my expectations and what I’m doing here.will need huge improvement.wonder why the teacher in library said nice about it.
  • Great!!! but suddenly started crashing all the time

    By sendyy_doll
    My 3 year old loves this app! He especially loves the human body lessons and the dinosaurs. We had the subscription for about more than a year and all of sudden it started crashing every time he wants to play. I already tried reinstalling it but it didn’t work. I’m thinking about just canceling the subscription which is really unfortunate since my son loves this game.

    It took several minutes to load on my pre schoolers iPad mini. When I went to cancel it kept redirecting to iTunes page and not allowing free trial subscription cancellation...30 min and I’m still trying to cancel
  • My 4yo LOVES it

    By E.hogan14
    We are homeschooling and my daughter loves this app. We purchased the year long subscription because the games really help her with sight words, phonics, and handwriting. We have had it since October I believe and she has gone from not recognizing half of the alphabet to reading and spelling the starter sight words! She loves the craft videos and the ocean chapters especially! Totally worth every penny.
  • Best education app

    5
    By erinlee183
    My son loves this app and I love that they send me a one min video clip of what he’s watched so we can discuss it at dinner. I can’t tell you how many times he has recited a fact or used a word like theropod or otoscope correctly in a sentence and when I ask him how he knew that, the answer is always “Marco’s World”. He stays on top of the days of the week because of the app and is always excited for the beginning of the month because that’s when their new activities come through. Did I mention he’s for and thanks to Marcos works was doing all this at just 3?

    nebulae are not “beyond our galaxy”. At least not the ones they are trying to describe. The Crab Nebula is not beyond our galaxy. It’s only 6000ly away. Our galaxy is 150,000ly across at least. It’s a supernova remnant. It’s very small and fuzzy in a telescope and not the type of star factory you would see from massive nebulae like Horsehead, North American or Lagoon...also, in our galaxy. App is nice, but I can’t see why I’d be asked to pay the price of Netflix for an education product lacking in education.

  • Outstanding!

    By Mark.A.P.
    We are 4 weeks into owning the World School App, and it is now the GOTO App for my 3 and 5 year old! Solid and extensive STEAM base content, and education tools which keeps my kids completely engaged and away from the pure video apps that is a brain drain on little minds. Also brings my wife and I into their interactive educational experience!
  • The best screen time for kids!

    A month ago my daughter would sneak my old phone into her room and watch YouTube videos. Now she sneaks it into her room to play Marco Polo World School.. Now this is what I call healthy screen time!

  • Not worth the money

    By Jinjjjjjjo
    It is educational and all but your options are very limited in the app it’s not worth spending they much for the same 10 videos a month and you need inter net access at all time it’s not like it could be something for him to watch in the car and all
  • Very educational

    By Krisvv
    My 4-5 year old loves this app and so do i. It gives her a of general knowledge in a fun way and she remembers everything she watches. New videos come in weekly and it’s so fun. She uses it about 5-10” a day. It’s perfect
  • Can not unsubscribe!

    By Dre577
    When I go to setting to unsubscribe from this app that is not supported by our iPads the address is invalid. This is a scam you can’t get out of. Sorry I tried it out because I can’t use it and have to keep paying. I’ll be contacting Apple.
  • Best educational app that feels like fun!!

    By Ash/G
    My son just turned 2 and can not get enough of this amazing app! It’s the best one we’ve found! He has learned so much and is already learning site words and body systems and so much information about different animals from all over the world! I also have and 11 year old daughter and nieces and nephews from age 4-10 who also love to sit with my little guy and learn with this app! I would highly recommend it to anybody considering it. It’s worth every cent!! Plus they are constantly adding new lessons and field trips to the app. As an educator myself, trust me. You want this app.

    By K101709
    I wish there was a free option so that parents can let their kids try the app on a limited basis and if the parents felt the child was benefiting and learning then they could buy the full version. In my experience my child takes more then 7 days to grow interest in an app.
  • Can’t unsubscribe

    My son doesn’t like the app, still in the 7day free trial and I want to unsubscribe before it charges my account $70. Can’t figure out how to do it. Attempted to contact... pushed every button available.. there are no account settings to discontinue the use of this app.

    By NRM Mom
    I downloaded your free trial period app for my child and I to discover a new learning app. Unfortunately we are 2 days in a 7day free trail period and the app doesn’t come on at all. The app goes as far as the MarcoPolo sign intro and then we see the plane circling around the world before it shuts down. I just canceled the year subscription, we had high hopes for this app. Im happy this happened during the free trail period and not when I’ve spent my money.
