Each day, you’ll find new ideas on early stimulation activities that are personalized to your baby's age and needs. Features: • Kinedu’s Early Childhood Assessment developed with the help of Stanford Professor of Psychology, Michael Frank Ph.D. •Personalized daily activity plan with fun-filled activities tailored to your baby’s needs – not just the “average” child. • Progress results with percentiles for every skill, see how the child is doing compared to other children his or her age. • Learn the science behind each milestone, which ones your baby should be accomplishing based on his or her age and the activities you can do to reach them. • A catalog of over 1,600 video activities for different skills by developmental area, as well as the baby's age. • 450+ articles and slideshows written by our education specialists. • Invite unlimited family members or your nanny to your account. • Pregnancy Plan: activities and articles. Created by experts in child development, Kinedu gives you personalized activity plans, milestone information, health-related articles, and play activities plus parenting tips to create a solid foundation for your newborn baby's development. Each activity is accompanied by an easy-to-follow short video. If you are pregnant, Kinedu will guide you through your pregnancy day-by-day. Your child's growth develops at his or her own pace, which is why the personalization of daily video activity sets keeps getting more challenging as they grow from newborn to toddler and beyond. Your plan will be set-up to teach the right skills at the right time, taking into account your baby’s sensitive developmental periods. Kinedu works on four growth areas – including cognitive, linguistic, physical, as well as social and emotional development. The activities recommended are based on the child's development by fun short videos that model each activity and teach your child through play.

  • Free version isn’t useful

    It’s difficult and slow to try to use the free app. Everything you click on will just lead you to an ad to pay for a membership. I didn’t buy it, so I don’t know if it’s good.
  • Deepening the connection with my baby

    Kinedu has been a great tool to optimize the time with my baby and help deepens the connection. I love learning what is going on in her brain and body while having fun and quality time.
  • Not worth the money

    By Charz07
    A friend of mine recommended this app. As a first time mom I thought that it would be helpful. I found it to be ok but not great. I understand that a lot of effort was put into creating these research based videos. However, I think $69.99 is very steep. I am especially upset that I was unable to unsubscribe via iTunes before the seven days were up (the option was literally not available). AND it took the money from my account early. When I tried to trouble shoot the problem, the only solution provided was to request a refund once it was billed. Now that it’s billed, I can not get a refund. Not only that, when I did eventually get to unsubscribe, I saw options for cheaper subscriptions!! I don’t understand why those were not offered up front. The app isn’t terrible, but the content does not justify the price, that’s why I’m giving it a low rating.
  • Why are dads excluded from app?

    3
    By analares
    Love the app, however I wish it were more inclusive with dads, from the app illustration to profile details and lack of activity videos with dads. I actually looked for this app per his request and find it unfortunate that it makes parenting seem like an exclusively motherly responsibility. Please keep up with our progress within society and reflect on app. Thanks!!
  • Misleading ad

    1
    By KyaniHerbalifeAdvocare
    It said it was $3.33 a month to get Kinedu Premium but it charged $39.99 at one time. Misleading ad since they offer a $9.99 monthly price and the ad said it was 65% off.
  • Not Sure

    2
    By Amgar86
    I purchased the app because I felt like it would be of use during and after my pregnancy but for some reason when I click on an article it’s not the article. For instance I wanted to read Sex During 2nd Trimester and the article is about the baby’s brain development. I’ve noticed a lot of articles are doing that. This app isn’t cheap and I’m regretting this purchase.
  • Excellent App

    Kinedu gives you a lot of ideas of activities not only to spend time with your baby but to help her brain development
  • Great For Stay at Home Parents

    Definitely gave me great ideas to try with my baby.
  • The best app for parents worried about development

    By Luisgza
    I’ve been using Kinedu for three years as a parent of twins and recently a one year old baby. Kinedu has changed the way I play with my girls, gives me constantly improving games, and a developmental scorecard that helps me understand where they are and what I can do with them!!! Totally recommend Kinedu.
  • Highly Disapointed

    By Osofli
    60.00 well waisted. Just a rip off... tried to cancel subscription and still charged. The app does not give me the premium options that I was charged for. False advertisement! The trial offered more than the premium do now that I have been charged everything still say “Update to premium” isn’t that what the 59.99 plus tax was for? I just want my money back.... will not recommend will leave reviews on other sites about this.... could not contact app support or anything 😡
  • Premium purchase bugs

    2
    By Coopypie
    I went to buy a monthly subscription as I will be home with my preschooler just over the summer (I'm a teacher). After pressing the monthly subscription several times and verifying the purchase through the app store, I received an error message. I pressed the yearly subscription button to see if it would work. Then both charges came through at the same time. Now, Apple is not allowing me a refund of the yearly subscription, although I obviously don't need to have both
  • Was not happy with this app

    I was trying out this app because if offered a 7 day free trial and it pulled the money out of my account on day 5. I found a better app for 1/2 the price.
  • So so

    I like the app for the activities for baby, but the push notifications are pointless. They send them and it never fails, it’s something that I want to read up on and I click it and it doesn’t work. It takes me to the loading screen, but never loads. I have updated the app, my phone, done it on WiFi, and just my cell service, but it NEVER works when you click on the push notifications!!
  • Like the app, but..

    By caro42789
    I like the app and there are some really cute activities on it.. but I’m trying to save on money. I don’t think it’s worth the price. I have tried canceling my subscription several times but am still getting billed for it!
  • Love it!

    I love love Kinedu. I’ve been using it for 2 years with my baby boy. But with the last update it seems to me that I’m not able to record and track his weight and height or am I doing something wrong here?
  • Free version okay

  • This app is an ad

    By Clypsedra
    This app is merely an ad for their $70 a year premium service. Pretty useless unless you want to shell out that outrageous cost. Don’t download this

  • False advertising

    By lesliee123
    Charged me almost twice what it was advertised to cost. A lot of the activities are repeats each day and things my child was able to do months ago. Not worth the $50 they charged me.
  • Amazing absolutely love Kinedu!!

    Such a great convienent way for any person becoming a parent for the first time or anyone who wants to give their child the best headstart in life
  • Very disappointed!

    By hmkestel
    So I never write reviews but I am so disappointed with this app I felt I needed to. I downloaded it and ended up paying the 39.95 for the upgrade but it gave me nothing extra. All the activities are still locked. It was a waste of money. Do not pay for the upgrade you get nothing!

  • No support/help

    By Mmmmmmmmkakaka
    I tried emailing for help and it won’t work in the app because it says I do not have a mail account set up but I do have my email in my profile. I am trying to search for an article that I got a notification about but when I opened the app the article wasn’t there.

    I have been using Kinedu since my child was born. It has been over a year and it still helps me come up with fun ideas! As a first time parent, I did not know what I should be looking for, working on, etc. with my child. Kinedu gave me gentle guidelines and fun activities that are easy and low stress and fun to do every day! It gave me the peace of mind as a new parent to know I was fostering growth in my baby! Love this app! Will definitely continue to use it and will use it again if we have another baby!
  • Informative and fun app!

    Easy to use. Great activities for parents and babies.
  • Good app

    By robvent
    Great activities! I would like a little more variety because sometimes there’s repeating activities but overall great
  • Easy ideas but repetitive

    2
    By Mmcclur
    This app is nice for some simple games and exercises to play with baby but it’s very simplistic and repetitive. After a few weeks of checking out the activities I don’t feel that it’s worth the $10 per month anymore.
  • Definitely has great ideas!

    By sbdbabe
    This ap has given me some great activities To do with my baby! As a first time mom I have no idea what I’m doing so to be given daily activities to do with my little one it’s been exciting for both of us!
  • Removed my baby records

    By Zara Pyrmont
    All of a sudden my babies height weight records have been removed and the option totally removed from the free version of the app. It would be nice to be notified so I could save the records somewhere else.
  • Stay away

    By Meggerzsogood
    I signed up for the free trial on 3/23/19 and it said to cancel before 3/30/19. I immediately tried the app with my 6-month-old. You can tell money went into developing this, which is great. However, I don’t need a video telling me that the activity is the day is “Call your baby’s name from behind and see if they turn their head.” Especially not for $70.00. It was not worth it at all, or I would have happily spent more. The day before the trial ended (last night) I was prematurely charged $69.99. I had to call Apple to cancel which was a real treat. 0/10 would not recommend this app. I’m sure there’s something better and cheaper.
  • Love it! One small suggestion

    5
    By Danahtangen
    We love the app and the activities, especially with both written and video instructions! We have a premium account so we can have multiple family members and nanny. Would be awesome if the “share” function had an option to share with other members on you account with a little note - so we can inform nanny and vice versa of the result or challenges with certain activities. Thanks for a great development app! I have recommended to friends with babies!
  • It’s not free

    In order to view the actual material you have to pay a fee per month.
  • CONPLETE Waste of Money. Costumer Service is Nonexistent

    1
    By Grace L R
    I’m a first time mom and was checking out different apps to find something that could help me teach my son what he needs to know. I tried the free trial, only to be billed a day earlier than the trial ended (I had already decided that I wasn’t going to buy the subscription with Kinedu and planned to cancel the night before the trial ended). However I was billed $60+ for the entire year prematurely. I emailed Kinedu telling them what happened and that I wanted a refund and cancellation of my subscription. They didn’t respond to my email. I cancelled my subscription from my end, hoping to get the refund soon. It has now been almost a month and I have now reached out to the customer support team MULTIPLE times to get a refund or to AT LEAST reinstate my subscription so that I can actually use the YEARLY subscription that I was charged for!! No response. I would have called Kinedu immediately, however apparently the only form of contact is through email. ** DO NOT BUY. ** Worst service I have ever received. Biggest regret and such a waste of a lot of money.
  • Where are the fathers??

    By gabGri2016
    App is great, but why are all the cartoons animations and videos with moms? Where are the fathers? Why are they not equally portrayed as primary caregivers and leaders of the development of their young children?
  • Repetitive and bad billing

    1
    By Bad billing
    I wanted to love this app. First time mom, desperate for guidance, figured it was worth the money. I was wrong. The first month was okay but I quickly realized the activities were the EXACT SAME 2 or 3 activities just with a different narrative. I followed the instructions to stop the auto billing and canceled my account. I got busy with life/returning to work and forgot to check the account. Three months later, I learned Kinedu had just ignored my cancelation directions and had continued to bill me $10/mo. Poor form, Kinedu team.

  • Auto renew

    By Shannon03
    I have tried to cancel this app several times unsuccessfully. Each time I try I’m told that the server cannot be reached. I was not warned that it was up for an auto renew, or that I was going to be charged automatically. I have found this app to be less helpful as my child grew. I think that if you just interact and talk to your child you do not need this app at all.
  • Great app!

    By mfnr2018
    I love Kinedu! Very doable exercises/activities that I look forward to completing with my newborn every day. It’s super educational, and I love learning about the milestones and seeing them happen with my daughter. The only reason why I didn’t give the app 5 stars is because when the app is loading, it provides really cool tips that I can’t ever finish reading in time before it’s done loading.

    I'm trying the one-week free trial now. I will give an update on what I think after the week. However, as of right now, I like it because it will help us know what he is achieving and how to help Eli complete his milestones.
  • Horrible!

    Not an easy app to use at all. And I even tried to delete it for some reason charged me for a full year and I can’t seem to get a refund. I would have kept it but I don’t find this app useful at all.
