    I don’t understand why we have to purchase so many simple things. Like head control I immediately uninstalled just based off that.

    This app repeats the exact same exercises for weeks at a time. I understand the value of repetition, but come on. Also, the suggested activities are vague. For instance, sing your baby a song. Or Place a toy just out of your babies reach, encourage him to reach for it. Yawn! The app doesn’t spark my imagination or give any specific suggestions on engaging the baby.
  • Not worth the money

    When my baby was first born, I was excited to see an app like this, as I have never been around infants before and thought I could use guidance. However, I felt like every time I opened the app, I ended up checking off 85% of the activities that I had already done through the natural flow of play. I waited a few months and tried again, just to be disappointed by the lack of different exercises. Finally, I decided to ask for a refund, or at least a partial one for my unused months, but I was denied. So now I’m literally deleting dollars off my screen.
  • Amazing tool for Learning

    By CarlosMcSquizy
    Not only is this a great tool for teaching children but for parents as well. As a mother of two children one needing speech therapy the other needing physical therapy this app is amazing. It has a lot of exercises from our therapy classes and more. Videos that show exactly what to do and how to do it. Clear labeling of what the exercises works on I.e. fine motor skills, social skills. It has easy to follow daily tasks, progress reports, and you can tailor what you are working on to where your child is. It has reading material, age appropriate milestones, parenting guides and tips. I love it, my infant loves it, my toddler loves it. I could not be happier!
  • The best app ever!!!!

    Love it so far. But for some reason the videos stop playing after awhile of being on the app.
  • Great program

    By tiredbabymomma
    I love all the suggestions this program offers, and all the practice exercises it suggests to help little ones meet their milestones. The best part is the videos which help me understand how to do each exercise with my son. I think this app is almost perfect. My son is a little developmentally behind, and some suggestions if an activity is too hard, or maybe if the app showed and easier activity that leads up to the one that is too hard would be nice. Besides that I love this purchase!!!
  • Love this app

    By Krissy M C
    I love this app it’s amazing the articles the program I see my son improving and learning so much. The only things I will say is there is not information about independent time, some of the milestones don’t have the best descriptions and it doesn’t tell you if baby is on track behind or ahead having that information would be nice as other apps do. Otherwise it’s perfect.
  • Too expensive

    I am by myself most of the day. Me and husband moved out of state and we don’t know anyone around here. I started feeling like everyday I’m playing with the same toys with my baby and I could even sense him getting a little bored. He gets so excited doing new activities everyday. I can’t believe how much he has been progressing. He just turned 6 months. I’m a huge fan of this app and so happy I came a crossed it!
  • Good!

    I decided to get a one year subscription for my baby girl and was glad to have done that. The activities were catered to her specific age and we had fun doing them together. I decided not to renew my subscription since my daughter is a toddler and we spend a lot of time outside of the house. I gave this 4 stars because now without the subscription, most of the activities are locked despite paying for a sub previously. With the cost, it would have been nice to have access to more than just 2-3 activities a day.

  • Amazing Development App for Babies!!

    As a Father of 4 children, I have found this app to an indispensable tool in enriching my children’s development. I have seen firsthand the many benefits and improvements my children have experienced as a result of using this app. It is very easy to use, covers very important areas of their development and incorporates a wide variety of activities, and all the while I am bonding with my child. This app is an absolute MUST for every parent!
  • Love this app!

    Very pleased with this app! And I feel like my son has a jump start on development since doing all these activities everyday! Only thing is it takes awhile to load and have to restart it several times a day! Hopefully maybe this is a quick adjustment and can be fixed! But overall great app def. worth the money!!

    Thank you. Thank you! For the price of a coffee a month I’m getting this amazing tool to help my baby develop correctly in the first years! I love books, but I badly needed a more practical tool to show me exactly how to support my baby. Love this app!
  • Best money I’ve spent for my child

    By JanineCh
    I began using BabySparks just to have some fun activities to do with my baby. But it is so much more. It has taught me so much about my little one’s development and how to support it that I know recommend it to all my friends. I love that each activity has a video. It is very helpful to help me understand how to do the activity. For all the research, content that this app offers and the impact that it is having in my baby I feel like this is the best money that I have paid in a long while.
  • Help with purchasing??!

    By DanniBoy033
    This app is perfect for me but in order for me to get the full benefit I would need to subscribe, when I try to subscribe it does not let me. It gives me 3 options of subscriptions when I tap on the one I want it does nothing . So where can I purchase the whole app at??

    I have been using this app since birth of my first daughter and it has proven itself helpful. Consistency is key, but as long as you keep “fun” practicing with your child, it is an amazing tool and resource. I have even had my husband download it to continue our play and learning when he has baby duty :) Thank You Baby Sparks!
  • Good app

    I’m not sure if it doesn’t save settings, but I added child & it worked a few days & then was like new & I had to resetup- I wouldn’t save my child even after adding him a few times, so not happy with that part!

    Choose just 5 of the suggested activities for your baby, in categories like Speech and Fine Motor. Do some or all of these activities for 5 minutes each (or more of baby enjoys them!) and you can check it off, knowing you worked on their development that day in a specific way. -See and check off your baby’s skills as they develop. -Video example for visual learners -Feel accomplished instead of overwhelmed, whenever you do something engaging with your little one -1-click tailoring to your baby Dear developers: please make more months ASAP! My 28-month-old and I love your app, but he has almost finished the activities!
  • Great

    It is a great app, only concern is that in order to really use the app you need to buy it. The free version is just a demo.

    I was excited about this, I’ve never written a review. As a sahm, I was looking forward to new activities as I’ve not had a baby in over 15 years. I’m starting all over again and it’s been amazing, but challenging...after looking at 2 activities, an add to pay popped up. Very disappointed that wasn’t shown prior to downloading and wasting my time!
  • BS

    By stacynp90
    I think it’s BS that you have to pay to see the activities in the app. The activities that are free are WAY to easy for my LO. Like “practice head lifting,” really he’s 4 months old lol. Deleting. Waste of time.
  • Meh...

    By Ravenwolfe84
    This is essentially a $38 app. The free version is not even worth downloading as it has next to no features unlocked. This app needs to be less expensive! :/
  • Purchase error

    By JHS 2626 :^)
    I found today that activities were locked although I had made a lifetime purchase. And I accidentally made another purchase while trying to fix the problem. Could you refund the purchase I made today? Why were they locked in the first place?T_T

    By kartersmommy18
    Helps you teach things to baby you probably never knew to do with baby. The app is extremely helpful, if your a new parent this app is definitely for you. Even if your not a new parent there still could be things you could learn.
  • Subscription problems

    1
    By Juddypower
    I accidentally hit the yearly purchase and thought I had cancelled it. I then purchased monthly but was charged for both and it won’t allow me to cancel the $38 purchase and has been charging me the monthly subscription. Not worth the cost of $4 monthly and definitely not worth $38.
  • Must buy subscription

    Virtually Everything useful needs to be purchased, and you have to have pay for a subscription. Disappointing.
  • Will take your money but it won’t give you access to your subscription

    Really love the app, it has great and different activities to choose from daily! One issue though is that I get logged out randomly. The past week every time I go to open the app I have to log back in. If I weren’t opening it to then immediately interact with my son it wouldn’t be an issue, but that’s exactly what I’m doing and it gets frustrating.
  • Makes you log in EVERY TIME you use it

    I liked the idea of this app, so I went ahead and bought a subscription so I could access the activities. Since then, I’ve been disappointed with it. This app is buggy, clunky to use, and hard to navigate. It’s absolutely not worth the price. As other reviewers have pointed out, the app constantly logs you out of it. There is also no option to save user info, so I have to type my email and password every time I open it — not a great feature on an app that should be opened several times a day. It also tends to randomly crash. There was no option to invite additional caregivers, unlike other baby apps I have used. My husband tried logging in using my information, but despite claims to sync across devices, we couldn’t get activities he did with our daughter to show up on my phone, and vice versa. Finally, the app as a whole is clunky and difficult to navigate. For example, there’s no obvious way to preview an activity. I like to overview everything on the list first so I can plan out my daughter’s activities. That way I know which activities can easily be grouped together and which ones need special equipment. But when you click on an activity to get more information, the app assumes you are doing it immediately. This app does have great ideas for ways to play with my newborn, which is why I gave it three stars. I also appreciated that it keeps track of my preemie’s real age and adjusted age. However, for this price, I would have expected a far more refined app. I feel like I could have gotten the same amount of information from a book, with a lot less frustration.
