Great app but has bugs
by Runningfree56 on 2019/11/10 20:49
Love the app except it keeps crashing on my son
Shows Promise
by Oscar H 92 on 2019/10/13 19:03
The app continues to loop sound files.
Annoying
by Lalla.k on 2019/09/29 14:17
I subscribed for monthly subscription but the 7 days free trail wont start. It won't let me do an account and log in. I cant do anything im just watching the app do nothing. It only took my child's name and age. After that it keeps asking for subscriptions over and over and when i subscribe i get a message u already subscribed. And it goes over and over again..
Exceptional Fun In Learning!
by Jesisca on 2019/09/17 20:15
This is the only subscription app that my husband and I know is not one to be cancelled. Our family utilizes this app so much it pays us both back in the education our child receives and retains! The Marco Polo Learning Team does a great job showing the world to kids and introduces complex concepts to young audiences in such clever and relatable ways. My child just started kindergarten and is excelling because she has received a broader world view and understands more about how things work through this app. Thank you all for the years that we’ve gotten to spend enjoying this learning tool as a family! The sky’s the limit!
Profiles
by Housewife247 on 2019/09/15 23:42
I love this app and so do my kids. My only thing is I wish it worked on profiles where you added the child’s age so the learning path was for the age group. Because obviously my 5 year old can do way more than her 2 year old brother can and yet the lessons are all the same.
Never Worked
by 6 y/o on 2019/09/02 00:22
We purchased this app in Nov 2018 and it always crashed 1-2 minutes after starting it. We e-mailed the company/help desk and no response. It was a waste of $70.
Great app but what’s going on?
by Phirebaby on 2019/08/17 23:27
Purchased the yearly suppose to have a 7 day trial. Was charged same say. Also I can’t log in and never had that issue before as we’ve sued Marco Polo before. What gives??????
Gray loves it
by ORADGEE on 2019/08/04 06:04
Impressed w the variety of topics and learning tool He was so interested in learning and hearing he was enjoying spelling and recognizing sight words at 4 and a half has been too into video games to try he plays and learns at the same time
Preferred app with my children!
by AVeryTiredNightshifter on 2019/07/31 13:26
This is definitely a favorite with a fantastic parents section. Fantastic across the board!
Best Education App For Kids!
by djgwynn on 2019/07/25 23:44
As a father of two kids it isn’t always easy for me to spend time teaching my kids after work. I stumbled upon this amazing app this week and am so glad I did. I really like the applied approach to learning, my kids are actively enjoying the STEM curriculum. I really think this is the best education app I have tried out and my kids agree. Highly recommend it to other parents.
Charged me
by babytristanj on 2019/07/20 20:51
Was suppose to be a 7 day free trial but charged me monthly instead. What gives?
Can’t login with password manager
by Fightamin on 2019/07/20 15:52
The option to use a password manager is broken. Every time I tried using Lastpass, it would spit out a red error as if I was doing it wrong. Maddening. At LEAST give me the ability to paste my password into the login. I cancelled my subscription because I can’t even log in. Seems this app is wanting people to use simple, non-secure passwords.
Worth every penny
by Sha-Rad on 2019/07/05 15:26
We don’t like screen time but when we allow it, it’s this. She’s excelled in a very short time and doesn’t get bored
Love!!!!
by Eden Airelle on 2019/06/21 02:47
I literally love this app! I hardly ever leave reviews for any apps but I have to tell you this app is the very best! I tell all my friends with kids to get it.
Brilliant
by Gadgetsforkids on 2019/05/28 03:54
The app is incredibly intuitive, very engaging and my kids love it.

Really enjoy !
Excellent Program!
by tailand75 on 2019/04/07 16:00
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!
by MS_SERENA on 2019/03/29 18:36
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.
Trying to cancel free trial...feeling I got scammed
by Jodi Blackmon on 2019/03/27 22:37
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.
The idea is good but software doesn’t work

No longer okay
by jenjenut233 on 2019/03/11 23:58
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.
Great app
by dthom733 on 2019/03/02 20:56
This app is great for kids
Great for Kids of All Ages
by #grizzlyproof on 2019/03/02 19:38
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 on 2019/03/02 03:01
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
by left wisting too long on 2019/03/02 00:02
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!
by RobertGek on 2019/02/24 19:38
My daughter has grown so much using this app. Highly recommend it!
App keeps crashing
by mayola29 on 2019/02/23 19:10
I have purchased a subscription , but my kids spend more time waiting for the app to open than playing on the app
WTH
by QueenB_305 on 2019/02/21 20:47
I’m 15 mins in since I downloaded and started the free trial and I have yet to experience the app due to buffering. I don’t want to delete this app before I could experience it so please fix whatever issue there is. Sincerely potential New Customer
4&5 yr olds excel
by RachRN1 on 2019/02/21 15:59
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 on 2019/02/15 19:48
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 on 2019/01/31 21:46
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.
App malfunction
by asiasirigana on 2019/01/27 16:09
App freezes when loading to classroom. Had to uninstall.
Doesn’t work for me.
by Azoozjad on 2019/01/14 14:37
Why don’t you make a full version without the supscription? It would also be useful to use it for 6th graders like me.
Sorry so bore and compact
by nai 1234 on 2019/01/09 18:57
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 on 2019/01/04 18:00
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.
Loaded slowly pain to uninstall on iPad
by lama boma dingding on 2018/12/31 14:19
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 on 2018/12/30 20:18
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
by erinlee183 on 2018/12/29 02:10
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?
App says it needs update
by Sass127321 on 2018/12/13 17:32
I’ve updated and it still won’t open , saying it needs to update.
First lesson and it’s already wrong...
by Coad1 on 2018/12/08 03:56
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.

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!
by clesstrang on 2018/11/29 14:08
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!
Stood the test of time!
by Barleth on 2018/11/23 17:55
This app has stood the test of time with our 4/5 year old daughter. She absolutely loves it.. it’s her first pick. We have enjoyed it for a long time now!
Won’t work
by ughhhhhhshdbejdknd on 2018/11/23 15:09
Worked great for awhile and my kids loved it. Suddenly on day it won’t log me in. I’ve payed several months with no access to the account.
Won’t load
by Mom of dissapointed kiddo on 2018/11/22 14:17
Would love to love this but we’ve tried several times over our 7 day free trial and can’t even get it to load. 😔
Not worth the money
by Jinjjjjjjo on 2018/11/19 16:55
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 on 2018/11/17 14:34
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 on 2018/11/14 20:53
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 on 2018/11/08 16:39
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.
Incredibly engaging and consistent app

Free
by K101709 on 2018/11/04 05:58
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
by tabbbbbbbbbbiii on 2018/11/03 17:33
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.

Malfunction
by NRM Mom on 2018/10/24 20:06
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.

by Tart13456789 on 2018/10/22 12:18
They forced me to update. Now it won't load. Their support is telling me it's my fault because my iOS version is outdated. My device isn't even old. Cancel subscription please fix.
Toddler Approved!
by CT2012-01-2 on 2018/10/20 02:01
My almost three year old son loves this app! He is constantly asking to play it day and night. The app is simple and easy for him to use, he’s a pro by now. The videos are short and informative. The “games” are a good balance of fun and work. I am amazed at how well his writing skills are progressing! He loves the music videos as well. Thank you for continuing to add new lessons, we look forward to them!

by Seymour Shmeltz on 2018/10/12 03:47
I catch him playing it all the time. He’s so proud when he accomplishes a lesson. It’d be 5 stars if it had offline content so he can play even when we don’t have service.

“Free”?
by crystalv82 on 2018/09/03 11:42
Not free. I downloaded it expecting to at least have some kind of game for my kids to play, but you need to sign up for a trial to even play it, so why is it advertised as being free? I’m used to downloading “free” games that only let you play to a certain point until you have to pay to upgrade or get farther, but this basically feels like a trap to me. “Give us your payment info so you can have a free trial, which you’ll forget about, and we’ll bill you when it is up because you forgot to cancel.” Such a bummer.
Mediocre
by MJClowes on 2018/08/23 13:51
I think the idea behind this app is great but it’s content is extremely limited, I didn’t find much difference between my 9 yr olds profile and my 4 yr olds. I thought it also said you could have up to 6 kids (profiles) but I was only able to make 3 which doesn’t work for me since I have 6 kids. My autistic son did enjoy this app but it just doesn’t have enough diversity on it for me to pay $8/month, it was very one note. I would just say do the free trial and see if it is right for you but I didn’t feel it was worth it. I gave it 3 stars because my child did enjoy it and it was easy to cancel my subscription through the App Store and I wasn’t charged, it just wasn’t as good as the advertisement I felt.
So far so good
by DocCroaker on 2018/08/15 14:59
So, like others, I love the app. The videos are amazing and ideal for younger learners. I have only just started trying it. I do have a more advanced learner though, and wanted to know if the games got progressively more challenging? For example, spending a lot of time on phonics and sight words for a fairly fluent reader, while isn’t bad, isn’t maybe the best use of her screen time. She still loves playing and I know there is still value there for her, but I’m just curious if the app will eventually recognize her level and adjust the activities?
Nice but trouble logging in
by mornfisj on 2018/08/08 22:58
My son really likes the features on this app! Really neat way to learn new things. When I go to log in on a separate device though, it says my password is incorrect. I requested a password reset but never got an email.
Initial frustrations with signing up but helpful customer service
by qwertyuiop653478 on 2018/08/04 16:34
Initially had difficulty with signing up and felt like a limited customer service response, however when I requested help again swift and helpful outcome. I love the site and was disappointed that I might not be able to use it, also can sign both my kids up whereas other learning sites usually require separate subscriptions so it’s excellent value. My kids love it, this is the only app I’ll let them use as I feel it complements all of our other non screen activities extremely well
Sigh
by treetatro on 2018/07/12 23:39
Had to sign up. How do I quit free trial? App is slow and boring.
Great App & Customer Service
by Greatest mom ever! on 2018/06/09 16:09
Firstly, my kids love the app and learn a lot each time they “play” with it. Also had a case of user error (my mistake) and they helped me get the app working on my phone within 24 hours! I appreciate a company that helps their customers quickly.
Quite fantastic!
by Ferrety2006 on 2018/06/04 23:50
The app is loaded with a variety of interests and topics! My boys love the app. The new arts & crafts section is especially fun!
Stuck paying for it! Don’t download!!
by Holly432678 on 2018/05/31 10:25
I started the free trial but it is impossible to cancel the subscription now! I am stuck paying 5.95 a month for something I don’t use. I have tried emailing support but get no response! Don’t start the “free” trial, you’ll never get out of it!!!

As a mom and educator, I love finding apps that have been carefully developed with sound pedagogy and best practices in mind, while still providing something fun and entertaining for my kids. I love the conversational nature of the videos, my 5 yo is a big fan!
Incorrect Information
by cawalker7777 on 2018/04/22 16:05
Please check what is being taught. The first lesson I clicked on was space. I signed up for the this because I’m a science teacher. You say “rotate around the sun”. That is incorrect. It is “revolve”. Students DO confuse the 2, and correct terminology is critical.
Monthly payment is inconvenience
by 5Sheri on 2018/04/20 00:48
I rather pay $20 one time than paying a monthly fee for using this app. Moving on Thanks
ASOME!!!!!
by Metal sonic🚨 r on 2018/04/08 23:58
this a good app!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Great support!
by Nachodenmark on 2018/04/01 17:56
My grandsons loved this app until a forced update caused it to stop working entirely, both on the iPad and my iPhone. I unsubscribed initially but was contacted by the developers with the suggestion to try an uninstall and a reinstall. I did that with the result that it was again working fine to the delight of my grandsons and was better than ever with the human body section now added. I changed my subscription status back to subscribed because this is absolutely the favorite educational app here. Thanks not just for the app but for great support!
March Calendar Update
by Bikingak on 2018/03/23 02:00
We loved our first month but according to the calendar the month of March was supposed to be about the human body. We waited and waited and it hasn’t come yet :( My son is super excited to learn about what was shown in the preview but it still is not available.
The app will not let me subscribe
by Misiz_G on 2018/03/22 21:03
I've tried many many times to sign up for the 7 day free trial and subscribe to this app. I love the idea of this app however the app will not let us sign up! Very disappointing.
Great content, well worth it!
by HJHS_USA 123 on 2018/03/17 05:31
Downloaded this app after I got recommended by a friend. It has lots of great content for my kids and much better than other apps that I’ve tried in the past. Well worth it!
Favorite app!
by ccameron18 on 2018/03/15 16:39
My friend’s kids love it when I come over and let them play with this app on my phone. It lets them imagine they are in a completely different world, seeing new things while learning at the same time. I’m always a hit at kids parties!
Reporting this app
by Sweetlove391 on 2018/03/06 18:52
I’m reporting this app. The app advertises FULL ACCESS for $5.99. I paid for the app, downloaded it, it says, “start your free trial” meaning subscription service. It DOES NOT allow you to proceed without either logging in or starting a trial AFTER I ALREADY PURCHASED. I want my FULL REFUND NOW! Response to the Developer: Then, you need to make that perfectly clear. I looked at the part that explained in app purchases and it did not state subscription. I didn’t know until I clicked the button that said $5.99 and got into the app. I came back and combed through the description and realized it was longer than I had initially thought and included that tidbit but you’re bating people to download with misleading information and then saying oh yeah it’s a subscription service instead of just being forthcoming. I deleted the app and will not continue. I don’t desire to utilize your app. It’s also a lie that just $5.99 gives you full access because in essence, customers aren’t “just” paying $5.99. Over a course of 12 months (without taxes) it’s more like $71.88 and even more for each year the customer keeps the service with hopes that you don’t raise your prices. So again, you need to be more clear.
Amazing!
by roni donni on 2018/03/01 23:47
Cheaper and waaay better than abc mouse in my opinion! I love that the subjects change every month to keep up the interest! My son loves this app and is always telling me what he learned! ❤️💯
Password Overhaul
by evette5635 on 2018/02/25 07:42
I was never able to get pass the initial sign up. It cost 5.95 a month and requires sign up.i entered my Password 5 times. It fit the description requested and I was never able to get logged in. I am certain that complicated passwords are for protection. Sometimes the only Person that is locked out is ME! Because the pAsword is so complicated that I cSn never remember.
Great preschool and school age app
by Ches01 on 2018/02/19 03:29
I have both a 4 and 6 year old and this app checks off lots of boxes for both! I love the sight word practice for my 6 year old and the letter/word practice tailored for my 4 year old (app asks for the ages of the kids and so both get tailored content to their age). The video content is unique, professionally done, and keeps them hooked. Great learning tool that we will be using often!
Can’t hear anything ?
by modellife on 2018/02/17 15:02
Where is the sound? I have installed and re-installed and still no sound. This is my first try after downloading and already a glitch? Doesn’t look like I will keep this long enough for the subscription to kick in. Tell me how to fix this and I will give a better review. As of right now this is a waste of energy.
Would rate higher but...
by Zanemrose on 2018/02/16 21:01
I keep trying to join and it keeps giving me a payment processing error. I entered everything correctly. Multiple times. It won’t even let me try the free trial....
Mother
by elasticmedia on 2018/02/16 16:27
Marco Polo World School provides my kids with details about science that I would have to look up. The video is clear and engaging. My kids can learn and be entertained.
If your going to give your child a smart phone or tablet this is an amazing app
by stephbnyc on 2018/02/14 15:46
My kid loves this and it’s helping him understand and learn about different subjects.
Can’t enter the app ever
by Jube Jobe on 2018/02/14 03:34
Hi. Can I ever be able to pay and be subscribed? Lol. And when I put my email again and again it won’t accept because it says such account is already created.
Best learning app for my 3 year old!
by momjfrick on 2018/02/13 19:44
I am a full time working mother and I make sure to sit down every night with my 3 year old son to play this game together!!! We both learn and I can see his skills in reading and math start to develop! I also get to learn more about him as I see him choosing his favorite topics and discovering new ones. I can’t wait to see what other learning topics they add to this app! I absolutely love it and it’s worth every penny!!
Love this App
by mgm10028 on 2018/02/13 19:15
My son loves this app, and mom does too. I appreciate its educational utility, while he simply finds it fun! The characters are appealing, the instructional is engaging and the games keep it fun and interactive.
Profiles
by Housewife247 on 2019/09/15 23:42
I love this app and so do my kids. My only thing is I wish it worked on profiles where you added the child’s age so the learning path was for the age group. Because obviously my 5 year old can do way more than her 2 year old brother can and yet the lessons are all the same.
Excellent Program!
by tailand75 on 2019/04/07 16:00
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! 🙂
Exceptional Fun In Learning!
by Jesisca on 2019/09/17 20:15
This is the only subscription app that my husband and I know is not one to be cancelled. Our family utilizes this app so much it pays us both back in the education our child receives and retains! The Marco Polo Learning Team does a great job showing the world to kids and introduces complex concepts to young audiences in such clever and relatable ways. My child just started kindergarten and is excelling because she has received a broader world view and understands more about how things work through this app. Thank you all for the years that we’ve gotten to spend enjoying this learning tool as a family! The sky’s the limit!
Mediocre
by MJClowes on 2018/08/23 13:51
I think the idea behind this app is great but it’s content is extremely limited, I didn’t find much difference between my 9 yr olds profile and my 4 yr olds. I thought it also said you could have up to 6 kids (profiles) but I was only able to make 3 which doesn’t work for me since I have 6 kids. My autistic son did enjoy this app but it just doesn’t have enough diversity on it for me to pay $8/month, it was very one note. I would just say do the free trial and see if it is right for you but I didn’t feel it was worth it. I gave it 3 stars because my child did enjoy it and it was easy to cancel my subscription through the App Store and I wasn’t charged, it just wasn’t as good as the advertisement I felt.
Best educational app that feels like fun!!
by Ash/G on 2018/11/08 16:39
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.
Initial frustrations with signing up but helpful customer service
by qwertyuiop653478 on 2018/08/04 16:34
Initially had difficulty with signing up and felt like a limited customer service response, however when I requested help again swift and helpful outcome. I love the site and was disappointed that I might not be able to use it, also can sign both my kids up whereas other learning sites usually require separate subscriptions so it’s excellent value. My kids love it, this is the only app I’ll let them use as I feel it complements all of our other non screen activities extremely well
Best education app
by erinlee183 on 2018/12/29 02:10
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?
So far so good
by DocCroaker on 2018/08/15 14:59
So, like others, I love the app. The videos are amazing and ideal for younger learners. I have only just started trying it. I do have a more advanced learner though, and wanted to know if the games got progressively more challenging? For example, spending a lot of time on phonics and sight words for a fairly fluent reader, while isn’t bad, isn’t maybe the best use of her screen time. She still loves playing and I know there is still value there for her, but I’m just curious if the app will eventually recognize her level and adjust the activities?
Great support!
by Nachodenmark on 2018/04/01 17:56
My grandsons loved this app until a forced update caused it to stop working entirely, both on the iPad and my iPhone. I unsubscribed initially but was contacted by the developers with the suggestion to try an uninstall and a reinstall. I did that with the result that it was again working fine to the delight of my grandsons and was better than ever with the human body section now added. I changed my subscription status back to subscribed because this is absolutely the favorite educational app here. Thanks not just for the app but for great support!
No longer okay
by jenjenut233 on 2019/03/11 23:58
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.
Highly Recommended and worth spending!!!
by LOBPhila on 2019/02/15 19:48
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.

Great!!! but suddenly started crashing all the time
by sendyy_doll on 2019/01/04 18:00
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.
Best Education App For Kids!
by djgwynn on 2019/07/25 23:44
As a father of two kids it isn’t always easy for me to spend time teaching my kids after work. I stumbled upon this amazing app this week and am so glad I did. I really like the applied approach to learning, my kids are actively enjoying the STEM curriculum. I really think this is the best education app I have tried out and my kids agree. Highly recommend it to other parents.
Toddler Approved!
by CT2012-01-2 on 2018/10/20 02:01
My almost three year old son loves this app! He is constantly asking to play it day and night. The app is simple and easy for him to use, he’s a pro by now. The videos are short and informative. The “games” are a good balance of fun and work. I am amazed at how well his writing skills are progressing! He loves the music videos as well. Thank you for continuing to add new lessons, we look forward to them!

My 4yo LOVES it
by E.hogan14 on 2018/12/30 20:18
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.
Outstanding!
by Mark.A.P. on 2018/11/30 16:33
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!
First lesson and it’s already wrong...
by Coad1 on 2018/12/08 03:56
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.
“Free”?
by crystalv82 on 2018/09/03 11:42
Not free. I downloaded it expecting to at least have some kind of game for my kids to play, but you need to sign up for a trial to even play it, so why is it advertised as being free? I’m used to downloading “free” games that only let you play to a certain point until you have to pay to upgrade or get farther, but this basically feels like a trap to me. “Give us your payment info so you can have a free trial, which you’ll forget about, and we’ll bill you when it is up because you forgot to cancel.” Such a bummer.
Great App & Customer Service
by Greatest mom ever! on 2018/06/09 16:09
Firstly, my kids love the app and learn a lot each time they “play” with it. Also had a case of user error (my mistake) and they helped me get the app working on my phone within 24 hours! I appreciate a company that helps their customers quickly.
Educational and fun
by ahgdbxjwn on 2018/02/10 15:26
I downloaded this app for my nephew to play and he loved it. I am very picky when it comes to exposing children to screen time, but this app is very educational and well made. In the future, I would definitely allow my own children to play with this app too.
Favorite app!
by ccameron18 on 2018/03/15 16:39

Can’t unsubscribe
by tabbbbbbbbbbiii on 2018/11/03 17:33
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.
March Calendar Update
by Bikingak on 2018/03/23 02:00
We loved our first month but according to the calendar the month of March was supposed to be about the human body. We waited and waited and it hasn’t come yet :( My son is super excited to learn about what was shown in the preview but it still is not available.
Great but
by Princess 👸🏼 of unicorns 🦄 on 2018/02/09 22:18
I do like the concept of the app so I bought the app for my 5 year old twins in kindergarten to be prepared for 1st grade but while signing up it never let me in to the app and I did everything thing correctly my password I reset my password and the same thing happened good for kids but just wastes time for parents.
Nice but trouble logging in
by mornfisj on 2018/08/08 22:58
My son really likes the features on this app! Really neat way to learn new things. When I go to log in on a separate device though, it says my password is incorrect. I requested a password reset but never got an email.
Just purchase for one month!
by MS_SERENA on 2019/03/29 18:36
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.
Such fun!
by dylanhiking on 2018/02/07 16:33
I was just sent this to try out for my precocious 3 and 6 year old god children and I ended up playing with it myself for over 20 minutes. I love the science section. Trying math one next. Super cool. Definitely getting and sharing. Thanks.

Gray loves it
by ORADGEE on 2019/08/04 06:04
Impressed w the variety of topics and learning tool He was so interested in learning and hearing he was enjoying spelling and recognizing sight words at 4 and a half has been too into video games to try he plays and learns at the same time
Great content, well worth it!
by HJHS_USA 123 on 2018/03/17 05:31
Downloaded this app after I got recommended by a friend. It has lots of great content for my kids and much better than other apps that I’ve tried in the past. Well worth it!
Very educational
by Krisvv on 2018/11/17 14:34
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
Malfunction
by NRM Mom on 2018/10/24 20:06
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.
My 4 year old loves this!
by Seymour Shmeltz on 2018/10/12 03:47
I catch him playing it all the time. He’s so proud when he accomplishes a lesson. It’d be 5 stars if it had offline content so he can play even when we don’t have service.
Won’t work
by ughhhhhhshdbejdknd on 2018/11/23 15:09
Worked great for awhile and my kids loved it. Suddenly on day it won’t log me in. I’ve payed several months with no access to the account.
Annoying
by Lalla.k on 2019/09/29 14:17
I subscribed for monthly subscription but the 7 days free trail wont start. It won't let me do an account and log in. I cant do anything im just watching the app do nothing. It only took my child's name and age. After that it keeps asking for subscriptions over and over and when i subscribe i get a message u already subscribed. And it goes over and over again..
Amazing!
by roni donni on 2018/03/01 23:47
Cheaper and waaay better than abc mouse in my opinion! I love that the subjects change every month to keep up the interest! My son loves this app and is always telling me what he learned! ❤️💯
4&5 yr olds excel
by RachRN1 on 2019/02/21 15:59
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.
Can’t login with password manager
by Fightamin on 2019/07/20 15:52
The option to use a password manager is broken. Every time I tried using Lastpass, it would spit out a red error as if I was doing it wrong. Maddening. At LEAST give me the ability to paste my password into the login. I cancelled my subscription because I can’t even log in. Seems this app is wanting people to use simple, non-secure passwords.
Stood the test of time!
by Barleth on 2018/11/23 17:55
This app has stood the test of time with our 4/5 year old daughter. She absolutely loves it.. it’s her first pick. We have enjoyed it for a long time now!
Entertaining meets education
by michelles010 on 2018/02/07 16:51
Great! Love the fun characters and easy to use functionality. My five year old loves it and even my two year old can play around with it.
Worth every penny

We don’t like screen time but when we allow it, it’s this. She’s excelled in a very short time and doesn’t get bored

Education App

This is a very impressive App. I have two kids who love to play with the Polos. The App is smart, videos short and education part very thoughtful. Thank you

Great app but has bugs
by Runningfree56 on 2019/11/10 20:49
Love the app except it keeps crashing on my son
Shows Promise
by Oscar H 92 on 2019/10/13 19:03
The app continues to loop sound files.
Annoying
by Lalla.k on 2019/09/29 14:17
I subscribed for monthly subscription but the 7 days free trail wont start. It won't let me do an account and log in. I cant do anything im just watching the app do nothing. It only took my child's name and age. After that it keeps asking for subscriptions over and over and when i subscribe i get a message u already subscribed. And it goes over and over again..
Exceptional Fun In Learning!
by Jesisca on 2019/09/17 20:15
This is the only subscription app that my husband and I know is not one to be cancelled. Our family utilizes this app so much it pays us both back in the education our child receives and retains! The Marco Polo Learning Team does a great job showing the world to kids and introduces complex concepts to young audiences in such clever and relatable ways. My child just started kindergarten and is excelling because she has received a broader world view and understands more about how things work through this app. Thank you all for the years that we’ve gotten to spend enjoying this learning tool as a family! The sky’s the limit!
Profiles
by Housewife247 on 2019/09/15 23:42
I love this app and so do my kids. My only thing is I wish it worked on profiles where you added the child’s age so the learning path was for the age group. Because obviously my 5 year old can do way more than her 2 year old brother can and yet the lessons are all the same.
Never Worked
by 6 y/o on 2019/09/02 00:22
We purchased this app in Nov 2018 and it always crashed 1-2 minutes after starting it. We e-mailed the company/help desk and no response. It was a waste of $70.
Great app but what’s going on?
by Phirebaby on 2019/08/17 23:27
Purchased the yearly suppose to have a 7 day trial. Was charged same say. Also I can’t log in and never had that issue before as we’ve sued Marco Polo before. What gives??????
Gray loves it
by ORADGEE on 2019/08/04 06:04
Impressed w the variety of topics and learning tool He was so interested in learning and hearing he was enjoying spelling and recognizing sight words at 4 and a half has been too into video games to try he plays and learns at the same time
Preferred app with my children!
by AVeryTiredNightshifter on 2019/07/31 13:26
This is definitely a favorite with a fantastic parents section. Fantastic across the board!
Best Education App For Kids!
by djgwynn on 2019/07/25 23:44
As a father of two kids it isn’t always easy for me to spend time teaching my kids after work. I stumbled upon this amazing app this week and am so glad I did. I really like the applied approach to learning, my kids are actively enjoying the STEM curriculum. I really think this is the best education app I have tried out and my kids agree. Highly recommend it to other parents.
Charged me
by babytristanj on 2019/07/20 20:51
Was suppose to be a 7 day free trial but charged me monthly instead. What gives?
Can’t login with password manager
by Fightamin on 2019/07/20 15:52
The option to use a password manager is broken. Every time I tried using Lastpass, it would spit out a red error as if I was doing it wrong. Maddening. At LEAST give me the ability to paste my password into the login. I cancelled my subscription because I can’t even log in. Seems this app is wanting people to use simple, non-secure passwords.
Worth every penny
by Sha-Rad on 2019/07/05 15:26
We don’t like screen time but when we allow it, it’s this. She’s excelled in a very short time and doesn’t get bored
Love!!!!
by Eden Airelle on 2019/06/21 02:47
I literally love this app! I hardly ever leave reviews for any apps but I have to tell you this app is the very best! I tell all my friends with kids to get it.
Brilliant
by Gadgetsforkids on 2019/05/28 03:54
The app is incredibly intuitive, very engaging and my kids love it.

Really enjoy !
Excellent Program!
by tailand75 on 2019/04/07 16:00
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!
by MS_SERENA on 2019/03/29 18:36
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.
Trying to cancel free trial...feeling I got scammed
by Jodi Blackmon on 2019/03/27 22:37
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.

No longer okay
by jenjenut233 on 2019/03/11 23:58
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.
Great app
by dthom733 on 2019/03/02 20:56
This app is great for kids
Great for Kids of All Ages
by #grizzlyproof on 2019/03/02 19:38
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 on 2019/03/02 03:01
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
by left wisting too long on 2019/03/02 00:02
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!
by RobertGek on 2019/02/24 19:38
My daughter has grown so much using this app. Highly recommend it!
App keeps crashing

I’m 15 mins in since I downloaded and started the free trial and I have yet to experience the app due to buffering. I don’t want to delete this app before I could experience it so please fix whatever issue there is. Sincerely potential New Customer
4&5 yr olds excel
by RachRN1 on 2019/02/21 15:59
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 on 2019/02/15 19:48
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 on 2019/01/31 21:46
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.
App malfunction
by asiasirigana on 2019/01/27 16:09
App freezes when loading to classroom. Had to uninstall.
Doesn’t work for me.
by Azoozjad on 2019/01/14 14:37
Why don’t you make a full version without the supscription? It would also be useful to use it for 6th graders like me.
Sorry so bore and compact
by nai 1234 on 2019/01/09 18:57
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 on 2019/01/04 18:00
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.
Loaded slowly pain to uninstall on iPad
by lama boma dingding on 2018/12/31 14:19
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 on 2018/12/30 20:18
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
by erinlee183 on 2018/12/29 02:10
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?
App says it needs update
by Sass127321 on 2018/12/13 17:32
I’ve updated and it still won’t open , saying it needs to update.
First lesson and it’s already wrong...
by Coad1 on 2018/12/08 03:56
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.

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!
by clesstrang on 2018/11/29 14:08
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!
Stood the test of time!
by Barleth on 2018/11/23 17:55

Would love to love this but we’ve tried several times over our 7 day free trial and can’t even get it to load. 😔
Not worth the money
by Jinjjjjjjo on 2018/11/19 16:55
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 on 2018/11/17 14:34
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 on 2018/11/14 20:53
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 on 2018/11/08 16:39
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.
Incredibly engaging and consistent app

Free
by K101709 on 2018/11/04 05:58
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
by tabbbbbbbbbbiii on 2018/11/03 17:33
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.

Malfunction
by NRM Mom on 2018/10/24 20:06
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.

They forced me to update. Now it won't load. Their support is telling me it's my fault because my iOS version is outdated. My device isn't even old. Cancel subscription please fix.
Toddler Approved!
by CT2012-01-2 on 2018/10/20 02:01
My almost three year old son loves this app! He is constantly asking to play it day and night. The app is simple and easy for him to use, he’s a pro by now. The videos are short and informative. The “games” are a good balance of fun and work. I am amazed at how well his writing skills are progressing! He loves the music videos as well. Thank you for continuing to add new lessons, we look forward to them!

by Seymour Shmeltz on 2018/10/12 03:47
I catch him playing it all the time. He’s so proud when he accomplishes a lesson. It’d be 5 stars if it had offline content so he can play even when we don’t have service.

“Free”?
by crystalv82 on 2018/09/03 11:42
Not free. I downloaded it expecting to at least have some kind of game for my kids to play, but you need to sign up for a trial to even play it, so why is it advertised as being free? I’m used to downloading “free” games that only let you play to a certain point until you have to pay to upgrade or get farther, but this basically feels like a trap to me. “Give us your payment info so you can have a free trial, which you’ll forget about, and we’ll bill you when it is up because you forgot to cancel.” Such a bummer.
Mediocre
by MJClowes on 2018/08/23 13:51
I think the idea behind this app is great but it’s content is extremely limited, I didn’t find much difference between my 9 yr olds profile and my 4 yr olds. I thought it also said you could have up to 6 kids (profiles) but I was only able to make 3 which doesn’t work for me since I have 6 kids. My autistic son did enjoy this app but it just doesn’t have enough diversity on it for me to pay $8/month, it was very one note. I would just say do the free trial and see if it is right for you but I didn’t feel it was worth it. I gave it 3 stars because my child did enjoy it and it was easy to cancel my subscription through the App Store and I wasn’t charged, it just wasn’t as good as the advertisement I felt.
So far so good
by DocCroaker on 2018/08/15 14:59
So, like others, I love the app. The videos are amazing and ideal for younger learners. I have only just started trying it. I do have a more advanced learner though, and wanted to know if the games got progressively more challenging? For example, spending a lot of time on phonics and sight words for a fairly fluent reader, while isn’t bad, isn’t maybe the best use of her screen time. She still loves playing and I know there is still value there for her, but I’m just curious if the app will eventually recognize her level and adjust the activities?
Nice but trouble logging in
by mornfisj on 2018/08/08 22:58
My son really likes the features on this app! Really neat way to learn new things. When I go to log in on a separate device though, it says my password is incorrect. I requested a password reset but never got an email.
Initial frustrations with signing up but helpful customer service
by qwertyuiop653478 on 2018/08/04 16:34
Initially had difficulty with signing up and felt like a limited customer service response, however when I requested help again swift and helpful outcome. I love the site and was disappointed that I might not be able to use it, also can sign both my kids up whereas other learning sites usually require separate subscriptions so it’s excellent value. My kids love it, this is the only app I’ll let them use as I feel it complements all of our other non screen activities extremely well
Sigh
by treetatro on 2018/07/12 23:39
Had to sign up. How do I quit free trial? App is slow and boring.
Great App & Customer Service
by Greatest mom ever! on 2018/06/09 16:09
Firstly, my kids love the app and learn a lot each time they “play” with it. Also had a case of user error (my mistake) and they helped me get the app working on my phone within 24 hours! I appreciate a company that helps their customers quickly.
Quite fantastic!
by Ferrety2006 on 2018/06/04 23:50
The app is loaded with a variety of interests and topics! My boys love the app. The new arts & crafts section is especially fun!
Stuck paying for it! Don’t download!!
by Holly432678 on 2018/05/31 10:25
I started the free trial but it is impossible to cancel the subscription now! I am stuck paying 5.95 a month for something I don’t use. I have tried emailing support but get no response! Don’t start the “free” trial, you’ll never get out of it!!!

Please check what is being taught. The first lesson I clicked on was space. I signed up for the this because I’m a science teacher. You say “rotate around the sun”. That is incorrect. It is “revolve”. Students DO confuse the 2, and correct terminology is critical.
Monthly payment is inconvenience
by 5Sheri on 2018/04/20 00:48
I rather pay $20 one time than paying a monthly fee for using this app. Moving on Thanks
ASOME!!!!!
by Metal sonic🚨 r on 2018/04/08 23:58
this a good app!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Great support!
by Nachodenmark on 2018/04/01 17:56
My grandsons loved this app until a forced update caused it to stop working entirely, both on the iPad and my iPhone. I unsubscribed initially but was contacted by the developers with the suggestion to try an uninstall and a reinstall. I did that with the result that it was again working fine to the delight of my grandsons and was better than ever with the human body section now added. I changed my subscription status back to subscribed because this is absolutely the favorite educational app here. Thanks not just for the app but for great support!
March Calendar Update
by Bikingak on 2018/03/23 02:00
We loved our first month but according to the calendar the month of March was supposed to be about the human body. We waited and waited and it hasn’t come yet :( My son is super excited to learn about what was shown in the preview but it still is not available.
The app will not let me subscribe
by Misiz_G on 2018/03/22 21:03
I've tried many many times to sign up for the 7 day free trial and subscribe to this app. I love the idea of this app however the app will not let us sign up! Very disappointing.
Great content, well worth it!
by HJHS_USA 123 on 2018/03/17 05:31
Downloaded this app after I got recommended by a friend. It has lots of great content for my kids and much better than other apps that I’ve tried in the past. Well worth it!
Favorite app!
by ccameron18 on 2018/03/15 16:39
My friend’s kids love it when I come over and let them play with this app on my phone. It lets them imagine they are in a completely different world, seeing new things while learning at the same time. I’m always a hit at kids parties!
Reporting this app
by Sweetlove391 on 2018/03/06 18:52
I’m reporting this app. The app advertises FULL ACCESS for $5.99. I paid for the app, downloaded it, it says, “start your free trial” meaning subscription service. It DOES NOT allow you to proceed without either logging in or starting a trial AFTER I ALREADY PURCHASED. I want my FULL REFUND NOW! Response to the Developer: Then, you need to make that perfectly clear. I looked at the part that explained in app purchases and it did not state subscription. I didn’t know until I clicked the button that said $5.99 and got into the app. I came back and combed through the description and realized it was longer than I had initially thought and included that tidbit but you’re bating people to download with misleading information and then saying oh yeah it’s a subscription service instead of just being forthcoming. I deleted the app and will not continue. I don’t desire to utilize your app. It’s also a lie that just $5.99 gives you full access because in essence, customers aren’t “just” paying $5.99. Over a course of 12 months (without taxes) it’s more like $71.88 and even more for each year the customer keeps the service with hopes that you don’t raise your prices. So again, you need to be more clear.
Amazing!
by roni donni on 2018/03/01 23:47
Cheaper and waaay better than abc mouse in my opinion! I love that the subjects change every month to keep up the interest! My son loves this app and is always telling me what he learned! ❤️💯
Password Overhaul
by evette5635 on 2018/02/25 07:42
I was never able to get pass the initial sign up. It cost 5.95 a month and requires sign up.i entered my Password 5 times. It fit the description requested and I was never able to get logged in. I am certain that complicated passwords are for protection. Sometimes the only Person that is locked out is ME! Because the pAsword is so complicated that I cSn never remember.
Great preschool and school age app
by Ches01 on 2018/02/19 03:29
I have both a 4 and 6 year old and this app checks off lots of boxes for both! I love the sight word practice for my 6 year old and the letter/word practice tailored for my 4 year old (app asks for the ages of the kids and so both get tailored content to their age). The video content is unique, professionally done, and keeps them hooked. Great learning tool that we will be using often!
Can’t hear anything ?
by modellife on 2018/02/17 15:02
Where is the sound? I have installed and re-installed and still no sound. This is my first try after downloading and already a glitch? Doesn’t look like I will keep this long enough for the subscription to kick in. Tell me how to fix this and I will give a better review. As of right now this is a waste of energy.
Would rate higher but...
by Zanemrose on 2018/02/16 21:01
I keep trying to join and it keeps giving me a payment processing error. I entered everything correctly. Multiple times. It won’t even let me try the free trial....
Mother
by elasticmedia on 2018/02/16 16:27
Marco Polo World School provides my kids with details about science that I would have to look up. The video is clear and engaging. My kids can learn and be entertained.
If your going to give your child a smart phone or tablet this is an amazing app
by stephbnyc on 2018/02/14 15:46
My kid loves this and it’s helping him understand and learn about different subjects.
Can’t enter the app ever
by Jube Jobe on 2018/02/14 03:34
Hi. Can I ever be able to pay and be subscribed? Lol. And when I put my email again and again it won’t accept because it says such account is already created.
Best learning app for my 3 year old!
by momjfrick on 2018/02/13 19:44
I am a full time working mother and I make sure to sit down every night with my 3 year old son to play this game together!!! We both learn and I can see his skills in reading and math start to develop! I also get to learn more about him as I see him choosing his favorite topics and discovering new ones. I can’t wait to see what other learning topics they add to this app! I absolutely love it and it’s worth every penny!!
Love this App
by mgm10028 on 2018/02/13 19:15
My son loves this app, and mom does too. I appreciate its educational utility, while he simply finds it fun! The characters are appealing, the instructional is engaging and the games keep it fun and interactive.
Profiles
by Housewife247 on 2019/09/15 23:42
I love this app and so do my kids. My only thing is I wish it worked on profiles where you added the child’s age so the learning path was for the age group. Because obviously my 5 year old can do way more than her 2 year old brother can and yet the lessons are all the same.
Excellent Program!
by tailand75 on 2019/04/07 16:00
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! 🙂
Exceptional Fun In Learning!
by Jesisca on 2019/09/17 20:15
This is the only subscription app that my husband and I know is not one to be cancelled. Our family utilizes this app so much it pays us both back in the education our child receives and retains! The Marco Polo Learning Team does a great job showing the world to kids and introduces complex concepts to young audiences in such clever and relatable ways. My child just started kindergarten and is excelling because she has received a broader world view and understands more about how things work through this app. Thank you all for the years that we’ve gotten to spend enjoying this learning tool as a family! The sky’s the limit!
Mediocre
by MJClowes on 2018/08/23 13:51
I think the idea behind this app is great but it’s content is extremely limited, I didn’t find much difference between my 9 yr olds profile and my 4 yr olds. I thought it also said you could have up to 6 kids (profiles) but I was only able to make 3 which doesn’t work for me since I have 6 kids. My autistic son did enjoy this app but it just doesn’t have enough diversity on it for me to pay $8/month, it was very one note. I would just say do the free trial and see if it is right for you but I didn’t feel it was worth it. I gave it 3 stars because my child did enjoy it and it was easy to cancel my subscription through the App Store and I wasn’t charged, it just wasn’t as good as the advertisement I felt.
Best educational app that feels like fun!!
by Ash/G on 2018/11/08 16:39
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.
Initial frustrations with signing up but helpful customer service
by qwertyuiop653478 on 2018/08/04 16:34
Initially had difficulty with signing up and felt like a limited customer service response, however when I requested help again swift and helpful outcome. I love the site and was disappointed that I might not be able to use it, also can sign both my kids up whereas other learning sites usually require separate subscriptions so it’s excellent value. My kids love it, this is the only app I’ll let them use as I feel it complements all of our other non screen activities extremely well
Best education app
by erinlee183 on 2018/12/29 02:10
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?
So far so good
by DocCroaker on 2018/08/15 14:59
So, like others, I love the app. The videos are amazing and ideal for younger learners. I have only just started trying it. I do have a more advanced learner though, and wanted to know if the games got progressively more challenging? For example, spending a lot of time on phonics and sight words for a fairly fluent reader, while isn’t bad, isn’t maybe the best use of her screen time. She still loves playing and I know there is still value there for her, but I’m just curious if the app will eventually recognize her level and adjust the activities?
Great support!
by Nachodenmark on 2018/04/01 17:56
My grandsons loved this app until a forced update caused it to stop working entirely, both on the iPad and my iPhone. I unsubscribed initially but was contacted by the developers with the suggestion to try an uninstall and a reinstall. I did that with the result that it was again working fine to the delight of my grandsons and was better than ever with the human body section now added. I changed my subscription status back to subscribed because this is absolutely the favorite educational app here. Thanks not just for the app but for great support!
No longer okay
by jenjenut233 on 2019/03/11 23:58
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.
Highly Recommended and worth spending!!!
by LOBPhila on 2019/02/15 19:48
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.

Great!!! but suddenly started crashing all the time
by sendyy_doll on 2019/01/04 18:00
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.
Best Education App For Kids!
by djgwynn on 2019/07/25 23:44
As a father of two kids it isn’t always easy for me to spend time teaching my kids after work. I stumbled upon this amazing app this week and am so glad I did. I really like the applied approach to learning, my kids are actively enjoying the STEM curriculum. I really think this is the best education app I have tried out and my kids agree. Highly recommend it to other parents.
Toddler Approved!
by CT2012-01-2 on 2018/10/20 02:01
My almost three year old son loves this app! He is constantly asking to play it day and night. The app is simple and easy for him to use, he’s a pro by now. The videos are short and informative. The “games” are a good balance of fun and work. I am amazed at how well his writing skills are progressing! He loves the music videos as well. Thank you for continuing to add new lessons, we look forward to them!

My 4yo LOVES it
by E.hogan14 on 2018/12/30 20:18
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.
Outstanding!
by Mark.A.P. on 2018/11/30 16:33
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!
First lesson and it’s already wrong...
by Coad1 on 2018/12/08 03:56
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.
“Free”?
by crystalv82 on 2018/09/03 11:42
Not free. I downloaded it expecting to at least have some kind of game for my kids to play, but you need to sign up for a trial to even play it, so why is it advertised as being free? I’m used to downloading “free” games that only let you play to a certain point until you have to pay to upgrade or get farther, but this basically feels like a trap to me. “Give us your payment info so you can have a free trial, which you’ll forget about, and we’ll bill you when it is up because you forgot to cancel.” Such a bummer.
Great App & Customer Service
by Greatest mom ever! on 2018/06/09 16:09
Firstly, my kids love the app and learn a lot each time they “play” with it. Also had a case of user error (my mistake) and they helped me get the app working on my phone within 24 hours! I appreciate a company that helps their customers quickly.
Educational and fun
by ahgdbxjwn on 2018/02/10 15:26
I downloaded this app for my nephew to play and he loved it. I am very picky when it comes to exposing children to screen time, but this app is very educational and well made. In the future, I would definitely allow my own children to play with this app too.
Favorite app!
by ccameron18 on 2018/03/15 16:39

Can’t unsubscribe
by tabbbbbbbbbbiii on 2018/11/03 17:33
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.
March Calendar Update
by Bikingak on 2018/03/23 02:00
We loved our first month but according to the calendar the month of March was supposed to be about the human body. We waited and waited and it hasn’t come yet :( My son is super excited to learn about what was shown in the preview but it still is not available.
Great but
by Princess 👸🏼 of unicorns 🦄 on 2018/02/09 22:18
I do like the concept of the app so I bought the app for my 5 year old twins in kindergarten to be prepared for 1st grade but while signing up it never let me in to the app and I did everything thing correctly my password I reset my password and the same thing happened good for kids but just wastes time for parents.
Nice but trouble logging in
by mornfisj on 2018/08/08 22:58
My son really likes the features on this app! Really neat way to learn new things. When I go to log in on a separate device though, it says my password is incorrect. I requested a password reset but never got an email.
Just purchase for one month!
by MS_SERENA on 2019/03/29 18:36
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.
Such fun!
by dylanhiking on 2018/02/07 16:33
I was just sent this to try out for my precocious 3 and 6 year old god children and I ended up playing with it myself for over 20 minutes. I love the science section. Trying math one next. Super cool. Definitely getting and sharing. Thanks.
Excellent content quality
by Indigo20 on 2018/05/02 15:06
As a mom and educator, I love finding apps that have been carefully developed with sound pedagogy and best practices in mind, while still providing something fun and entertaining for my kids. I love the conversational nature of the videos, my 5 yo is a big fan!
Gray loves it
by ORADGEE on 2019/08/04 06:04
Impressed w the variety of topics and learning tool He was so interested in learning and hearing he was enjoying spelling and recognizing sight words at 4 and a half has been too into video games to try he plays and learns at the same time
Great content, well worth it!
by HJHS_USA 123 on 2018/03/17 05:31
Downloaded this app after I got recommended by a friend. It has lots of great content for my kids and much better than other apps that I’ve tried in the past. Well worth it!
Very educational
by Krisvv on 2018/11/17 14:34
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
Malfunction
by NRM Mom on 2018/10/24 20:06
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.
My 4 year old loves this!
by Seymour Shmeltz on 2018/10/12 03:47
I catch him playing it all the time. He’s so proud when he accomplishes a lesson. It’d be 5 stars if it had offline content so he can play even when we don’t have service.
Won’t work
by ughhhhhhshdbejdknd on 2018/11/23 15:09
Worked great for awhile and my kids loved it. Suddenly on day it won’t log me in. I’ve payed several months with no access to the account.
Annoying
by Lalla.k on 2019/09/29 14:17
I subscribed for monthly subscription but the 7 days free trail wont start. It won't let me do an account and log in. I cant do anything im just watching the app do nothing. It only took my child's name and age. After that it keeps asking for subscriptions over and over and when i subscribe i get a message u already subscribed. And it goes over and over again..
Amazing!
by roni donni on 2018/03/01 23:47
Cheaper and waaay better than abc mouse in my opinion! I love that the subjects change every month to keep up the interest! My son loves this app and is always telling me what he learned! ❤️💯
4&5 yr olds excel
by RachRN1 on 2019/02/21 15:59
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.
Can’t login with password manager
by Fightamin on 2019/07/20 15:52
The option to use a password manager is broken. Every time I tried using Lastpass, it would spit out a red error as if I was doing it wrong. Maddening. At LEAST give me the ability to paste my password into the login. I cancelled my subscription because I can’t even log in. Seems this app is wanting people to use simple, non-secure passwords.
Stood the test of time!
by Barleth on 2018/11/23 17:55
This app has stood the test of time with our 4/5 year old daughter. She absolutely loves it.. it’s her first pick. We have enjoyed it for a long time now!
Entertaining meets education
by michelles010 on 2018/02/07 16:51
Great! Love the fun characters and easy to use functionality. My five year old loves it and even my two year old can play around with it.
Worth every penny

We don’t like screen time but when we allow it, it’s this. She’s excelled in a very short time and doesn’t get bored

Education App

This is a very impressive App. I have two kids who love to play with the Polos. The App is smart, videos short and education part very thoughtful. Thank you
