Ever since we discovered PBSkids.org, it’s been our primary web entertainment for Kieran. She’ll be 4 next month and has learned so much the past year and a half or so she’s been using it. I personally think it is so valuable, I’m in my 2nd cycle of the paid version of the site. When I heard that they were coming out with a free Video App for our new iPad, I didn’t have to think twice about downloading it for Kieran. The App is extremely user-friendly for Kieran. I like that I can easily slide out the information on each show to find out the recommended ages and it’s educational goals. And, having two of Kieran’s favorite shows, Dinosaur Train and Super Why!, on demand has already been a life-saver.

Thanks for the review! This seems like a great age-appropriate app!
Actually, I don’t have kids, but this sounds like a fun thing to do on an iPad!
