  • Parents Beware

    By JenEliz
    This app is full of crafting DIY videos that will make your child want to make EVERY THING. The will spend hours watching videos and then you will have to clean up a glitter-apocalypse because your obstinate child refused to accept “no” and tried to make her own snow globe. Just say no to this app for your own sanity!
  • The best

    By SayraD
    We’ve been subscribers for over two years. This is my kids’ (2 and 4) absolute favorite app, and mine too. The content is fun and educational while really encouraging kids to explore. We have done tons of the projects and activities from within the app’s contents. I’m an educator, so I’m also very picky about apps and educational content—this one is just perfect in the way it gives kids freedom to explore and encourages curiosity. I can’t say enough great things about Curious World—we all adore it in my house!
  • Create, learn, move, play!

    By GigoMV
    We got a free trial on 2017. We purchased the year-long membership before our 9-week family trip. It was amazing! We renewed the membership without a doubt. Our son is homeschooled and he uses the app in his free time every day since then. We do yoga together, exercise, experiments, crafts, costumes, etc. He reads books, he paints, watches videos, dances and more. The app is complete, educational and fun. He is 6 years old, he is in first grade, he is advanced in all the subjects, he reads fluently, he loves science, he does math very well. This app is a complement for his daily lessons.
  • The Best App out there for young children!

    By Mom, Violet & Cooper
    As an early childhood educator, reading specialist, and mom, I have found Curious World to be the best app out their for young children and worth every penny! It will delight your child in so many ways as they grow academically as well as emotionally! There is so much to explore...beloved Curious George books (and many others), social stories, games, videos, arts and crafts, science, math concepts, career paths, and more. A great investment for your child... and teachers, for your students. You won’t be disappointed! My children never are!
  • Fun and curios kids recommend

    By Lolcattymom
    This game has so many fun and learning activity’s that my child stays on this app for at least an hour.I recommend this to kids that have an overactive imagination or for the curios.
  • Hello very good game

    By Kingpotato987
    Recently I have purchased this application for my three children. They are enormous fans of the Curious George and the titular Yellow man. They had many chuckles whilst indulging themselves in this lovely application. However my “wife” Suzy has recently become tenacious. She decided to enact a divorce on me AND SHE TOOK TGE KIDS. I was rather perturbed by this revelation but the funny man and ape always brig a grin to me when I’m downing that Russian whisky. 10/10
  • Don’t do it

    By proudmamaof31984
    This app makes it almost impossible to cancel subscription.Ive been attempting to cancel my subscription for over a month to no avail.Not to mention there are a lot of free apps that are available that are more fun for your little ones.
  • Really Insulted

    By Young Newbie Skeptic
    You have tons of Christmas stuff. You have like three Hanukkah books, and I don’t know where the Puppy’s First Hanukah came from, but the menorah has the wrong number of candles. Really insensitive and offensive. You guys keep disappointing...
  • Unauthorized purchases

    By gsadfgkkouyrwq
    I have been changed for this app several times per months and the app has been locked; my daughter wasn't able to use it anyway. Not sure why this is happening.
  • Love it

    By ysndshdjh
    I loved this game since I was a little kid but my mom deleted it and now I remembered it this is gonna be awesome again!!
  • Can’t open it after update

    By Qu Ya
    It was our favorite app for kids, until we updated it two days ago and we can t open it since then. Nothing shows up in the logging page and we are really disappointed.
  • I feel cheated and my children’s education abused

    By Chaplin Arthur
    The totality of this whole experience of purchasing and using this application began very pleasurable educational and enlightening as a parent for my child however recently I’ve noticed over the past 5 to 6 months I have not been able to login and it shows me clearly in my account settings that I am paid up until March 12 of 2019 however it is trying to make me take a temporary subscription ends in a $64 a fee however the subscription that I have now is only $29 is the app developer doing this because they are going up on the price of the app so they are punishing their long-term customers without any prior knowledge they are just doing this and then you have to re-subscribe even know your subscription is not over there capitalize into making more money which is defrauding the public and consumers
  • Won’t let me login to app

    By jsp1224
    I tried to reset my password twice and it still won’t let me login to the app. Password works fine for their website, but the app says it’s incorrect. Contacted support but got no response.
  • Fun and educational for kids!

    By kgal45
    I downloaded this app while babysitting my nephews who are two and five years old. They both loved it. It kept them both occupied and engaged for a good portion of the evening. The games seem fun and educational as do the videos. Definitely a keeper!
  • Fun, but frustrating

    By Thomp-son
    So much great content! But games often take a very long time to load, and the app crashes frequently.
  • Great little app for the kids

    By studiomassiv
    I’m glad we gave this app a try. Obviously, we were intrigued first by Curious George’s character but the kids have enjoyed the games and videos. It’s a much better alternative to the kids watching other kids dress up and play on YouTube Kids. 🙄 We’re over that!
  • What great fun!

    By The kid 7993
    My kids love this app! The games are perfect for keeping them busy during long car rides. I would highly recommend this to other parents!
  • Started out great but then failed to login every time.

    By Multichannel print subscriber
    This app started off great! It followed my child’s development, gave some great options for edu games. Then one day, maybe after an update, I couldn’t log in. I emailed the customer support and the claimed they reset my password. Still didn’t work. I sent multiple emails with screen shots and they were never able to fix my problem. I finally gave up but essentially 6 months of my subscription went to waste as I couldn’t sign in. I am remembering it now because iTunes is prompting me to renew my subscription. I believe I should get a refund for 6 months the subscription didn’t work.
  • Really good learning quality while having fun

    By pilgrims-pass
    I put this app to my niece’s tablet a few months ago. I recently went to visit her and saw how immersed she was in this. She really likes the videos and games, and her mom likes to go through the books with her. She showed me a cool game about matching faces - which was fun even for me, seems like a good quality game. I downloaded for myself and have got a bit hooked on some of the games in the app and enjoy the videos too. Well-made and unique learning experience - I would say a must-have for kids.
  • Requires purchase

    By HelFK
    This allows you to sign up for a week free but it is not a free app
  • Doesn't work

    By Natty0
    I am subscribed and does not allow me to access subscribed content.
  • Scam

    By mamabearwithme
    When the app worked, my kids and I loved it. But like another reviewer explained, many features stop working and/or say they are for subscribers only and lock me out of accessing them — even though I am a subscriber. Going around and around to try to fix the issue is maddening and there is no way to get support. I bet I am still paying for this app that my kids can’t even use.
  • Crashes constantly

    By Barbie_Doll XD
    I subscribe yearly to Curious. I saw it as an investment in my child’s education. I didn’t see new activities being added over the last year. Since switching over to a new company the application is constantly crashing more and more with every update. I need some improvement or want my money back. Those funds can go to a productive app company.
  • Can’t access subscription

    By nhj070913
    My kid loves this game so I payed for the subscription. It now refuses to let me sign in so I can’t access any of the paid material. Disappointed. **** UPDATE **** emailed developer and they responded the next day and fixed my account. Really fast response and they totally took care of the issue. Changed review to 5 stars. This app really is great!
  • Doesn’t work 😡

    By Not smurfin happy
    I am unable to sign in. I am a subscriber and it is frustrating that the app doesn’t work. At first some of the things were locked. It wouldn’t give me the option to enter my password. I deleted the app and reinstalled it thinking that would work. It’s even worse now. Can’t access any of the games and still won’t let me sign in. I would like a refund for the time I am unable to use the app. It’s not like it’s a one time fee. It’s monthly!
  • Extremely frustrated !!!

    By JarVic17
    Very frustrated !!! I've had this app for over 3 years and I just had to update again.... Now, everything is locked and my children cannot play anything at all. So I guess I will be deleting this. So sad because they really did enjoy it. But, now they want you to pay for everything I guess..!!!!
  • Disappointed

    By Rizboo86
    I guess this app was acquired by another company? Can’t log in and can’t even use free version. So disappointed, my kids loved this app.
  • Can’t access

    By glorsson
    Since the new ownership and “upgrad” I cannot access anything. Customer support has been unhelpful. I’m subscribed and will be asking for a refund if we cannot get access soon!
  • Where is customer support?

    By iamowl
    I have been subscribed to this for a couple years now and today I’m left wondering why this company doesn’t have any resources dedicated to customer retention or support? We can’t access the app at all, but the main issue is the little pop ups saying we can’t aren’t very informative or reassuring for an app with no one to troubleshoot with. When I click “support” from the App Store, it goes to an “oops!” page. They should message everyone with the app to let them know what’s going on, what they’re doing to fix it, and when they expect to resolve the issue, at the very least. Depending on how long or often this occurs, maybe a refund? We loved this app, and this is the first we have experienced an issue, but the lack of resolution or ability to contact is sketchy.
  • Don’t bother with subscription

    By prpltulip
    This game was working until we weren’t able to access content. It stated I required a subscription, which we had & even after reaching for tech support the dialogue ceased after sending a copy of the receipt that they requested. Such a ripoff!!
  • Would be perfect with parental control

    By DZ511
    I like that there is a lot of varied content available (games, books, videos, etc) for my 4 year old and I like the idea that there is a parent section that shows me how much time she’s spending on each activity, but ALL of her time is spent on games. I really wish there was a way to control how much time was spent doing certain things, like Amazon Freetime. For instance, play games AFTER reading books, or limiting the time for games. That would make this app a real winner.
  • Always problems logging in requiring a phone call to reset

    By AAAQ$$
    Lots of problems logging in requiring a phone call. Frustrating
  • Doesn’t Work

    By JamesKTech
    The other one star reviews on here are correct half the time you can’t download the games or play dumb over any type of data connection. Zero customer support. Tried restoring the app about 10 times and deleting and restoring the app. Worthless piece of junk and the programmers should find new jobs.
  • Disappointed!!!

    By becuaseineedanickname
    Like many other subscribers mentioned, there is a flaw in the app, been a subscriber, and yet it says sign up, my child is unable to use the app. App makes one go in circle and no solution, very frustrating!!!!!!!
  • Terrible app

    By Dspecular
    Same as all the other bad reviews. My son really liked the app. And now we can't log in. Keeps asking if I am an adult and to put in my age and the only years it show is in the 10,000 BE there is no way to reset the password to log in
  • Not working now that I've paid

    By cstingray76
    We started with with free trial then upgraded to the monthly subscription. My kids love this application and all that it has in it. So we bought the 1 yr subscription and now 6m later the app can not be accessed. My kids can't even open the app on their iPads now. And can't get in touch with anyone to fix this.
  • Never boring

    By Dover1983
    This app is awesome our 4.5 year has been playing it for almost a year. It’s perfectly attuned to their age and skill level allowing for learning and no frustration.
  • Tech issues

    By Dig G
    Very disappointed. It’s not recognizing I changed I tunes accounts that I downloaded from. So I’m paying for nothing. My son very disappointed
  • Cancellation

    By bijumon k augustine
    Cancel my curious George subscription
  • So worth the money

    By VallyKurl
    My 2 year old son loves this app and so do I! I was hesitant to sign up for the free trial, just because I figured I could find something else educational for free without the hassle... Nahhh. My son was obsessed with watching those videos of kids opening toys on YouTube, I wasn’t a fan of that. I’m happy I found an alternative that’s teaching him cool stuff as well as keeping him just as engaged as the other option. Games, books, songs, and videos that are all educational! The only reason I have given it 4 stars is because of the offline content. There are only games and books available to download, I wish the videos could be available as well... especially if I’m paying for it. It’s still the bomb though, seriously, b o m b, get it.
  • Great educational app

    By Jetiii7
    Great app for learning
  • Amazing App

    By AllyQ79
    My 3 year old loves this app! It has taught him so much and because the content updates he is never bored.
  • It was good for a minute

    By angry mema
    Paying for everything to stay locked with no resolution and no one to help.... This is B.S
  • Do NOT subscribe to this. Very very hard to unsubscribe.

    By Roy6435652
    We tested the free apps and games and were impressed. They emailed and offered us to subscribe not using the app at a discounted rate. Once you get paid for content you realize it's pretty poor quality. And even worse it's proved almost impossible to unsubscribe. You have to call to cancel and they keep saying different things and then not unsubscribe get you. Hours and hours on the phone. And still stuck with this rubbish.
  • Rip off.....

    By ckdorsey
    Horrible almost every thing on there you need to be a subscriber just horrible........
  • Frustrated beyond hope

    By Mjkl14590824
    I have been a subscriber for almost a year and very recently have been unable to access games for my child - these games are shown as being locked and requiring a subscription (which I have). There is no online support for this app, only an FAQ site with an email address on a separate webpage. When trying to troubleshoot I tried to re-subscribe with no success (told me I'm already a subscriber which I already knew) and also deleted and reinstalled the app with similar results. The fact that I've paid almost $90 over the past 11 months and these issues exist disgusts me. I just canceled my subscription and recommend anybody encountering similar issues to do the same ASAP. Also recommend anybody else considering this app to walk away. Extremely frustrating experience - these guys will take your money but not support you when issues arise.

  • Foul language

    By 🤔 confused and disappointed
    This app is fantastic until it spews foul language. While playing Arthur Build a Story my cousins heard the pirate say "Holy Smokes" this is not acceptable for children
  • Fun for my Grandson

    By Brave Thistle
    My grandson loves the different challenges. My only issue is that i have not been able to have it transfer from IPad to my iPhone.
