Description
With messenger kids... Parents Have More Control * Parents approve every contact, so kids can chat in a safer, more controlled environment. * Parents can remove any contact at any time * Parents can use sleep mode to set times when their child cannot use the app. * Messages don't disappear and can't be hidden in case parents would like to check in. * There are no ads or in-app purchases, and the app is free to download. Kids Have More Fun * Kid-appropriate stickers, GIFs, frames and emojis help kids creatively express themselves. * One-on-one or group video calls come to life with fun, interactive masks. * The feature-filled camera lets kids create videos and decorate photos to share with loved ones. Works with Messenger * Parents and parent-approved adults chat with kids through Messenger. * Works on all tablets and smartphones. * No phone number is needed - you only need Wi-Fi. Made Safer for Kids * Creating a messenger kids account for a child does not create a Facebook account for them. * Parents and guardians use their own Facebook accounts to create a messenger kids account for their child. * Kids have the option to report or block contacts and report inappropriate content. If a child submits a report, their parent or guardian will be notified. * We're always working to improve messenger kids. If you'd like to share any feedback with us or for more information, visit messengerkids.com.

My cousins and my friends live Farr away and I almost call them every day and if I don’t I at least once a week and I love ❤️ how you get to draw something for someone to guess and I love those silly 😜 picture filters but I would like some more colors to decorate it this app is amazing
Just cause they took away my fav filter

Best app ever
by pineapple🌈💐🌸🐨🍎🍍🥥🍱 on 2019/10/19 14:26
This is the best app ever And I never had problems with it before and I had it for two weeks five star rating goes to this app It is kid friendly you can access all their taxes and the FaceTime and the time they use it has fun filters so they can FaceTime their friends and you . and it has a secret code so only they and you can access it and that’s a five star rating
Gracias

Hi
Kids Messenger not available in our region (Puerto Rico)
by the hype master on 2019/10/14 04:02
I'm trying to set up kids messenger on my sons iPad. We are allowed to download the app but once I put my password for Facebook, an message appears that Kids Messenger is not available in our region which is Puerto Rico. I question this because my son has a friend his age here in Puerto Rico who has the Kids Messenger app. Just wondering if someone can help.
Awesome app

Great idea, needs MAJOR improvement
by amward19 on 2019/10/13 17:03
This is a good idea, but there is so much that needs to be improved. Trying to add my sons dad as a guardian was the biggest hassle ever because we aren’t friends on Facebook. It shouldn't have been so difficult seeing as how he’s one of the top people I communicate with on messenger. This is NOT user friendly at all, I had to constantly reference the internet for simple issues. Another thing that drives me insane....why can my kid send my gifs and draw me things but I can’t do the same back? I can do it with people on my messenger app, but not my own kid? Make that make sense, please Facebook. All in all it seems like this app was released without any quality improvement meeting done.
Amazing messenger
by Reesey_Tobiassen on 2019/10/13 15:59
It’s not inappropriate and I love that about it so you should really get this app I have a lot to say about it I can talk to all of my friends on it I can talk to my mom I can talk to my dad I talk my aunt my uncle‘s my softball crew and even a couple cousins I have lots of fun on this app get i now

This app has helped my daughter have fun with her friends that are far away and with friends that are near by. I’m so thankful that it is free, and that it I don’t need to have the feeling where my daughter is not safe. So I guess I just wanted to say thank you. From me and my daughter. 😁

Nothing special really
by QUUENGZCT on 2019/10/11 17:51
You should allow parents to add games that are also on our regular messenger (such as Ludo, uno, battleship etc) so that we with our kids. Actually disappointed that it didn’t already do this.
Really Fun.... but can get annoying
by TAYTAY LLAMA 1539 on 2019/10/11 00:27
This app is really fun, but when someone calls me it never rings. I have a lot of fun picking my profile picture, changing my color of the app, texting stickers, and doing games with my friends when taking to them on the phone. It is really annoying when someone calls you and it does not ring. It will just say, “You missed a call from Ashlyn”. It is really annoying and I hope that this problem will be fixed. Overall, you should get this app.

Easy to use, great for the littles
by FamilyofSharks on 2019/10/08 04:53
My little one is only 4 but I wanted a way for his aunts and uncles to send pics of their pets and for him to video call family on my old phone that he plays with and this is perfect for that. I was hesitant cause I wasn’t in a hurry to get my l/o on Facebook but I didn’t have to create an acct for him cause I manage his right from my messenger/Facebook app. His dad and I can both manage it. All tho I don’t have to worry yet, I really like that whoever is in charge of his acct (mom & dad in this case) has to approve who he can message and we can set it so he can’t message past bedtime and I think that’s an awesome feature. He can video call us, send pics, and stickers and messages. It’s super easy to use.

by Djdancer222 on 2019/10/06 13:22
Hello, I’m Madelynne, I Use This App Daily. But There Is A Bug Though That Really Bothers Me. My Missions Say To Check Back Later For More Missons, But I Don’t Get New Missions. This Has Been Going On For MONTHS ON END. Please Fix This, If You Do I Will Give 5 Stars. I Also Dislike, When You Take Away Filters To Add New Ones. I Really Enjoyed Some Of The Ones You Took Away! And Also Please PLEASE Give More Profile Customizations Options, You Pick A Color, Type Your Name, And Add A Profile Picture. THATS IT. Anyways Enough With The Venting. I Really Like This App, It Lets Me Talk To My Friends, Without Having To Deal With Annoying Scammers. The Filters Are Fun And Funny, The Games Are Fun. I Can Talk To My Cousin Who Lives On The Other Side Of The Country, Bring Dreams To Life With The Filters, Stickers, And More! I Enjoy This App A Lot And Have Fun With Silly Filters. My Cousin And Best Friend And A Old Kid From My School(Who Told Me About This App) 4 Stars Good Game But There Are Thing That Make Me Annoyed. -Djdancer222 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍

by butterflygirl1324610 on 2019/10/06 12:31
Hi I love this app and all the funny filters and the drawing games. It’s all awesome, but I think the children should decide if they want that person in their lists of people to chat with. Also I love that you can make a big group of people. Still an AWESOME app for kids. Thank you for reading!

It’s okay
by Randy R Robbins on 2019/10/05 05:37
This is a good app for kids but a couple things I think this app could use major improvement on would be a redesign of the logo just make it a solid green similar to regular messenger It would also be great if just instead of the two messenger versions there is a version for teens as well with more features than the kid version but less than the adult version
It’s a fun thing
by monkerdunker10 on 2019/10/05 00:19
It’s just a fun and funny communicating app that we all should have and you can’t say anything bad on it not even the poop emoji but ya I love it it’s a very fun thing to play and to talk on it . The faces is almost like Snapchat so ya I recommend this💙
WiTh ThE eMoJiS
by WaysToBeWicked_DisFan on 2019/10/04 21:46
I type computer faces even though I use my phone (an example would be :D) and so does the one friend I constantly talk to on this app. It annoys BOTH of us that when you type faces like T-T or :P it turns into 😭 and 😛. It does that with other faces too and I don’t like it xD. Please add a setting so that you can FIX THIS.
Not iPad-friendly
by All Nicknames R Taken 3719 on 2019/10/04 05:03
First of all, most text notifications don’t even say the message! They just say “so and so sent you a message.” Also, the app doesn’t even support landscape on iPad! It’s SOOOOOOooo annoying that I have to rotate my iPad every time I use this app! Multitask support would be nice too. Thank you for reading. Other than these things, this app is only moderately a bad experience for you and your kids.

One thing I don’t get
by Backhoe cowboy on 2019/10/03 00:43
I love this app it’s just that I want to be able to create my own stickers if you look at the stickers you can either see a name or it says Facebook Inc. I am very artistic and I want to make my own stickers. Besides that I love it ,I think it’s easy to set up, very user friendly and I can talk to my friends. There is one other thing I used to be able to see what time I sent a different message than the one that started the chat but now I can’t, what is the deal with it!In some places this is a great game. I just need those things fixed please
Love it but there is one problem

Things I don’t trust about this
by M.j.s.t on 2019/09/30 22:45
I know my kid has no friend, only his family members (not siblings,they don’t use the app). But I don’t really trust my kid(s) using apps made by the developers that made other apps for adults, take Instagram and messenger as an example.Instagram is made by the developers of Facebook and Messenger , am I right? My kids and all their classmates use these apps when they are only for older people,there can be pedophiles , strangers and/or kidnappers! But I will make sure that my kids don’t have random people I don’t know about as their contacts , I am just a little afraid that someone might rob my precious cats.

Conversations between messenger and messenger kids
by AZKatieMomma on 2019/09/30 02:55
My family members that are kids that are using messenger kids all try to send me thing like “guess what this picture is” and other apps and games that are not accessible in messenger and so if like my niece sends me one of those pictures from messenger kids, I can’t open it and can’t play
Not private and not safe
by brittacular71 on 2019/09/30 01:49
I had only one contact for my son. And that was it I never told any family and then my SIL called us asking why my son Leif had an account on Facebook he popped up as a suggested friend. How in the hack is it supposed to be safe for kids if random adults can get suggested to be his friend!? Deleted his messenger and I’m never using this app again

So helpful for me to connect with my kids, it helps me talk to them in like sleepovers too! It makes them happy and the funny filters are cute! But there is one thing that’s bad.. there can be glitches.. inappropriate things.. and wired people that try to FaceTime my kids! And the ONE thing I HATE is that you have to ask your parent to get someone online with you. It sends me 71 approvals 24/7 a day! I hope you can fix some thanks, bye! -Alex Wanke

by -Half & Half on 2019/09/25 18:48
Is wonderful when working. However, for the past month whenever I try to use it, it always says waiting to reconnect and I can’t receive messages when this happens and my messages won’t send. Deleting and redownloading the app won’t stop the issue, as you can’t get back in to your old account even though it shows up. Needless to say, I won’t be using this until this is fixed.🤣😡 P.S. there is also no emergency feature. There should be one that works 24/7. In my opinion, of course. -Half & Half.
Pretty good- needs improvement
by momsofdaughters on 2019/09/25 15:18
I like the application. It helps my daughter stay in touch with her friends and extended family. I wish there were more safety protocols. I want to see the conversations she is having. I want to see more of who she is communicating with. I want to be flagged when certain words are used. I want to be able to set more limits on times and photo sharing. For an app designed for children to use, they really missed the mark on safety features.

When I created the app for Mya I thought I was making it for her and it was me then it would not let me change the name to me .... I’m grandma Dail, not Mya Tess COPELAND ... w can I change that, her mother set her up under her name now it is confusing for our 16 grand children and 10 kids, can you make it in my name Dail Mashek or Grandma Dail would do... thank you:)

by disneys biggist fan on 2019/09/22 13:00
I’m 10 years old so I don’t really know or care about the whole grown ups phones blowing up deal. However I’m writing this review to tell you a little bit about the kids side. This game is so funny even if no ones answering you, you can still play with the filters and stuff like that. Also, I feel like it has way better connection than normal face time. Another cool thing is this, so have you ever gotten tired of an apps color or background? Well on messenger kids you can change the background color and text color (parents cannot do this😂)and I think that is a fun touch. Oh! I almost forgot you can chat with up to 4 people at e a time and parents don’t be scared, kids have to get a unique one of a kind passwords order to talk to random people. I highly recommend getting this game!!!😘 P.s. I’m not a very electronic type Pearson I would MUCH rather be playing outside or dancing, however when it comes to chatting with friends, COUNT ME IN!!!😉😁🙃

First of all, it’s not easy figuring out how to delete contacts or add new ones once you have finished initial set up. When I finally figured it out (I had to google it, after I tried downloading the app directly onto my phone to see it I could access parental controls that way), finding out that you access this control from you Facebook account, the contact lists for my two kids were not showing all their contacts. I know this because there were a few relatives I was specifically looking for to delete (not for bad reasons on their part, but just because my kids were bugging them a lot), and they show up on the app for my kids, but not for me to delete from my end. I had to go out of the parental controls for each of my kids and then back in again several times and each time a new contact that previously had not shown up, showed up. It’s really weird. And even still on one of my kids accounts, from my end, it says she does not have her dad as a contact, but I know she does as she messages him all the time on there. This issue needs to be fixed ASAP!
My kids love this.. but literally NO boundaries
by Newtonka on 2019/05/20 00:32
I have had this app for ONE day and my phone is nonstop blowing up. I have turned all notifications off (which I’d rather not have to do) However. There is not any type of a silent mode or an option to not contact the kids at a certain time. Even with zero notifications my phone keeps going off with all of the phone calls coming in from my child’s friends. Like 10x/minute. It is way too much. I have found myself logging on asking my daughters friends to please respect that it is bedtime. There needs to be some boundaries on this app! Like there should be a “do not disturb” option and also a function that requires parents permission for FaceTiming. Giving them access to chat at any time with friends is a complete invasion of privacy. My daughter respects it once I catch on that she’s FaceTiming.. but I should be able to allow the time frame when she has access to do it period. Already had a “moment” where I had to raise my voice and she’s literally FaceTiming with a friend.. who is in front of her parents.. and they heard everything. Beyond uncomfortable knowing that our privacy is invaded by kids that are just doing what the app allows them to get away with. More boundaries please or this thing is getting deleted. It is overwhelming after day 1.

Hello, I’m Madelynne, I Use This App Daily. But There Is A Bug Though That Really Bothers Me. My Missions Say To Check Back Later For More Missons, But I Don’t Get New Missions. This Has Been Going On For MONTHS ON END. Please Fix This, If You Do I Will Give 5 Stars. I Also Dislike, When You Take Away Filters To Add New Ones. I Really Enjoyed Some Of The Ones You Took Away! And Also Please PLEASE Give More Profile Customizations Options, You Pick A Color, Type Your Name, And Add A Profile Picture. THATS IT. Anyways Enough With The Venting. I Really Like This App, It Lets Me Talk To My Friends, Without Having To Deal With Annoying Scammers. The Filters Are Fun And Funny, The Games Are Fun. I Can Talk To My Cousin Who Lives On The Other Side Of The Country, Bring Dreams To Life With The Filters, Stickers, And More! I Enjoy This App A Lot And Have Fun With Silly Filters. My Cousin And Best Friend And A Old Kid From My School(Who Told Me About This App) 4 Stars Good Game But There Are Thing That Make Me Annoyed. -Djdancer222 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍
Instagram Kids please!!
by instagram_kids_please on 2019/08/08 13:54
Hi! I absolutely LOVE Messenger Kids!! I had an idea this morning that maybe since Messenger kids is so good, could you think about making Instagram Kids? It would be a super safe app where the kids ALL have private accounts and have to request to their parents to see their friends posts and stuff like that! You can choose and appropriate nickname, You can post stuff (privately) and put stuff (privately) on your story! Every post that goes up on Instagram Kids would be moderated before being seen by your friends! Your friends would ask your mom and their mom to see your page and you can only dm the people your parents say you can! The only people who can follow you would be your friends! I think this would be super fun for me and my friends, I really hope you will consider making this app!!!! I am really, really, REALLY hoping you make this app because I am not allowed to have any social media and my mom would let me have this! Please make it!!!! 🙏🙏🙏
I don’t see the problem
by Flashgirl16 on 2019/05/23 12:32
To all the parents reading this—what’s the big deal? I use this app often to talk to friends. I have to admit (although I’m not a teenager yet) the filters are a little childish but me and my friend have fun with them anyways because of how ridiculous both of us are 😂. I’ve been reading the reviews, there was a kid younger then me complaining about how we should be outside and not remembering our childhoods using this app for 2 hours at a time............really? I see no problems with it. Call me a nerd but I play Dungeons and Dragons and this app is handy when I want to talk to my friend about what we’ll do next. Everyone says it’s glitchy but aside from when you are FaceTiming the person you are on the phone with you always appears closer to the screen then they actually are. If you don’t like getting so many notifications, power the device off. No big deal. I’ve been using this for a few months and I enjoy it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
So amazing
by disneys biggist fan on 2019/09/22 13:00
I’m 10 years old so I don’t really know or care about the whole grown ups phones blowing up deal. However I’m writing this review to tell you a little bit about the kids side. This game is so funny even if no ones answering you, you can still play with the filters and stuff like that. Also, I feel like it has way better connection than normal face time. Another cool thing is this, so have you ever gotten tired of an apps color or background? Well on messenger kids you can change the background color and text color (parents cannot do this😂)and I think that is a fun touch. Oh! I almost forgot you can chat with up to 4 people at e a time and parents don’t be scared, kids have to get a unique one of a kind passwords order to talk to random people. I highly recommend getting this game!!!😘 P.s. I’m not a very electronic type Pearson I would MUCH rather be playing outside or dancing, however when it comes to chatting with friends, COUNT ME IN!!!😉😁🙃
Great app more filters though
by kline merchkowski on 2018/10/25 00:42
This app is great for a mom who is a little bit of a safety freak especially about social media this was a BIG step for me I am a teenager and I think some filters are cool like the fish one but we need some more grown up ones it’s hard to send a funny pic to someone with a dumb filter I am all about comedy but I need stuff to work with like a dog face filter from Snapchat that would be nice to have I can co tact my friends and talk to them the app load pretty fast and the softer downloads faster great idea for kids when you don’t want them to have complete access to the world but I wish we had more grown up filters because I would use them to send to my friends who don’t have this please review this I would appreciate some more filters thank you!
Great but needs improvement.
by amoreash on 2019/01/11 20:43
So i really like the app, but its limited. Needs to allow more then 2 people to control it for those that co parent like i do with girlfriends and such. The parents should be allow to delete group chats or edit anything without having to go onto there account in there app. Should be able to edit the main picture with pictures and not just taking one and lock it if need to, to keep them from doing random photos. Should be able to lock them from making group chats or messaging certain people at any point n not just block times they can do it. So they can be edited how many times they try to annoy someone by repeat calling them. These would help since i dont have her all the time. Or allow people who don't have Facebook to create there kids account. I have quite a lot of ideas i think could be improved, but over all its great for the little ones. Just working on respect with how to use it properly. Maybe can have videos to show them how to properly use it for kids to learn.
Something I really want to happen
by WildScarletGirl on 2019/09/19 22:48
I really think in the group thing that when someone creates a group, Like all my friends wanna know each other when they don’t have contacts. One of my friends lives in LA when the other lives here in my town. There should be a request pop up that says this person wants to create a group with this person. But instead right now they have to both have contacts. It is sad because we both play the same game. Also, when ever I’m playing with one friend, the other thinks we can play and be alone. Then I have to end the call then tell them which will make them sad, then I would call my other friend back! To conclude this TORTURING THING I whould likes to have this fixed with a request not a contact needed.😠😠
Disappointed
by shawkids on 2019/06/20 22:26
Not sure why this app is getting rave reviews. I have three kids that wanted to keep in touch with their cousins. It was a pain to set up. It was also very confusing. They’d be trying to call each other and every call would call me also. I have about 15 missed calls from the app. I was also getting every single message they sent- which isn’t a bad thing but kind of tedious when they are just sending stickers to each other. Managing the accts left a lot to be desired. I couldn’t modify or delete any accidentally made chats. So they had multiple chats open and it got confusing for them. Also I would message my niece and it would show up on my daughters phone. She had no idea who wrote them. As a parent I shouldn’t be getting all that. I should be able to modify and see who wrote what in all chats. So as of now I’m going to delete and hope that some major overhaul changes happen. Cause for me it was headache inducing and not ideal for the kids.
Please Read!
by PrincessAmber504 on 2018/12/19 02:41
I absolutely love this app, but there is a small Problem! My friends and I chat a lot and they’re always sending me stuff! But they have this app feature where the get to send stuff and the person has to “Guess The Drawing”. Now When I found this out, I looked and searched the app for it. I asked them where they found it and it was by the contacts. I was looking but nothing was there! And some of these friends have had the app for less time I have! I check almost every single day and it has been weeks and nothing has shown up! I check App Store to look for updates of it and still nothing! What do I do!? I really like this feature but It won’t work! Please respond and send me an answer. I really need it
Nothings wrong with it🥇🥇🥇🥇🏅🏅🏅
by Minecraft gamer🎮 on 2019/06/07 19:57
I didn’t used to have messenger until I saw this I couldn’t talk to my cousin my mom or basically anyone without my mom’s phone and I think that you guys just want to thing OK just kidding it’s amazing you can drawl you can decorate something you can make groups I named two groups one is called the guacamole lizard another one is called the crazy lizard can you guys share the pictures I made a picture just like that it’s a person holding a cat I have a fat cat she’s not very very very fat but I know a cat that is super fat his name is Joey but his nickname for me is JoJo he is mean to me sometimes he is sweet to me sometimes he scratches me sometimes he is amazing I love cats and I love people only if they’re nice people I love Mac and cheese pizza it’s amazing🍕🍟
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE BUBBLE COLORS D:<
by Elew1014 on 2019/08/03 14:09
Okey so I chat with my friends and us 3 have a different bubble color. And when you go to the message spot then you can see their color along with yours. But this morning when I got on O SEE THAT THE COLOR OF THE PERSON IM TALKING TO IS NOW GRAY! Why is it like this? I DON’T LIKE IT. The colors are what made the whole thing unique and fun! BUT WHY REMOVE THE BEST PART! CHANGE IT BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACK! GIVE BACK THE COLORS AND FUN OR IM DONE USING THIS. I used it last night and it had lots of fun color. And I went to our group chat to see what everyone sent. Then I noticed something wasn’t right. The bubbles were gray. So I went to one of my friends and their color was gray. It’s usually light blue though. And my other friend is a purplish pink color. BUT THEY WERE BOTH GRAY. Oh and take note this happened OVERNIGHT. SO THAT’S WHY I RATE 2 STARS. BECAUSE ALL THE FUN WAS TAKEN OUT OF IT. I DON’T LIKE THE GRAY!!! JUST PUT THE COLORS BACK IN! THAT’S ALL IM ASKING FOR! THEN I’D GIVE IT 5 STARS! -I’m not telling you my name ÒwÓ
Pretty good!
by xxtqa on 2018/10/02 23:13
I think this app is really good! I’m a military kid and I’m going to be moving soon so this'll be useful for when I move. You shouldn’t really listen to parents who write bad reviews saying stuff like “Kids should be going outside not texting!” Etc. Because honestly it isn’t true. I still go outside, I love going outside! The only thing really preventing me from going outside is how hot it is (I’m in Hawaii) It also did help when a hurricane happened recently I was worried about my friend and I was able to talk to her during the hurricane! Off of that tangent.... There has been a few glitches. Sometimes when my friend gives me a voice message my phone blacks out (may be just my phone though) and, my friends account got deleted(?) she didn’t get reported her account just got deleted somehow. It would be great to know what caused it/how to fix it.
This needs to be fixed
by Capt’n Merica on 2018/12/28 17:42
Just found out fake facebook accounts are making fake Messenger kids accounts and I found my “kids” page controlled by one pf those facebook accounts. I am in my 30’s, with a month old facebook picture of me in the thumb nail of this fake acct. There should be no way in heck that this should be allowed. I tested the app to figure out the controls and how this happened. The fake account owner had to have lied about my age to make this account, or just pressed skip. They used my full name and my old fb profile picture. PLEASE SOMEONE WITH POWER IN FACEBOOK. Delete these accounts, force age requirements, and do something about comparing pictures used in this app with adults with real facebook accounts to prevent these fakes from being made, before this gets out of hand. You have facial recognition software, how do you not have a system that can see the picture for this fake acct matches a real acct that clearly is too old to use this app?!
Easy to use, great for the littles
by FamilyofSharks on 2019/10/08 04:53
My little one is only 4 but I wanted a way for his aunts and uncles to send pics of their pets and for him to video call family on my old phone that he plays with and this is perfect for that. I was hesitant cause I wasn’t in a hurry to get my l/o on Facebook but I didn’t have to create an acct for him cause I manage his right from my messenger/Facebook app. His dad and I can both manage it. All tho I don’t have to worry yet, I really like that whoever is in charge of his acct (mom & dad in this case) has to approve who he can message and we can set it so he can’t message past bedtime and I think that’s an awesome feature. He can video call us, send pics, and stickers and messages. It’s super easy to use.
This is mostly an excellent app, a few improvements needed
by worstellar on 2019/03/04 22:30
This app has been really wonderful for my 8 year old son. It has given him the opportunity to initiate contact with his same aged cousins, grandparents, and aunts/uncles and this has been a wonderful thing for him. We are still teaching him boundaries with it and it would be nice for the app to include a few additional features: 1. I feel that the guardians for the child should be able to override a conversation they are currently in. 2. Guardians should be able to see exactly what time a call was made or received and how long that conversation was. 3. It would be nice to have a quick “go to sleep” button if the app needs to go to sleep for the child outside of the specified regular awake times.
Yes!
by Bklyn Jenny on 2019/01/19 16:01
My 3 yr old knows how to easily navigate this app. I love that my kids (ages 11 and down to 3 yrs) can use it to stay in contact with their cousins and grandparents without an actual FB account (currently not an option in our household for children under 17 yrs). We love that contacts can only be added by us (they don’t even get to see friend suggestions, and others don’t see them under ‘friend suggestions’ either). The only thing is that I hope a future update will allow us to set time curfews for each of their contacts. My brother in Cali has a 5 yr old. Between my daughters and his, they sometimes try to call each other at inappropriate times. Lol. Otherwise great app! I love it.
Great except for no push notifications!
by kelkatt on 2018/01/28 09:15
This app is really awesome and fun to connect with my grandson. Unfortunately, that’s not easy to do because we do not receive push notifications when we are calling or messaging each other. So we have missed video chat calls and messages are often not seen for hours or the next day. I have notifications enabled on both ends. I made a messenger kids account for myself to use with him so we would have the same masks and other options (plus I just like those masks!) However, the only way he can reach me is to call me on my regular messenger, where I get the push notifications. But if I am calling him, he has no idea and that defeats the purpose. I really hope that you fix this issue soon, please! Then I will gladly give 5 stars. Thank you for this app!
I love it
by horse lover girl 999 on 2019/07/28 15:13
Right now it’s summer and I have had the app since December and I can talk to my cousins who live super way away and my grandma who lives a few towns away my cousins that live a few towns away I can talk to them as well I can also talk to my mom on the family iPad it will give her a message on her phone or computer. If you have family that lives far away and you can’t really talk to them I would suggest this app Now I will tell about the app, you can send messages, face time and draw for people to guess then you can take pictures you can take a plan picture but you can draw on it or on with filters I think that’s what their called Bye I hope you get the app and 😉
glitches
by MammaMiaXOXO on 2018/05/28 02:24
Both my kids have Samsung tablets and I downloaded this app. I created their accounts with only family members as contacts. I noticed the contacts aren’t showing up on one of the tablets and on the other they can message anyone I’ve ever had in my main Facebook account which is totally unsafe. After deleting and re installing i just deleted it off both tablets due to the fact they can message anyone without having to ask and all the contacts I put as ok aren’t even showing up on the list. However I downloaded this app on my iPhone and it works perfectly. They can only see the contacts I added and no one else. However my kids don’t have iPhones for now and won’t be getting any, anytime soon so for now good bye Facebook messenger for kids. 😢
Not really going to use it
by Not impressed 😡🎀👌🏻🐳🐶 on 2018/06/22 02:52
I'm 13 going to be 14 and my parents installed this on my iPod, I get that the app is supposed to be a way kids can text their parents especially if they have an iPod or iPad but since I'm a teen I already have snapchat and Instagram to text my dad. I would use the app more to talk to my family if I didn't need wifi to use it. I know adults think kids now don't go outside often and always need to be connected to wifi, and yes I do stay inside a lot but me and my parents go camping so I don't have any wifi so when my parents go to an activity that's just for adults I have no way to contact them. Also there should be a teen mod that's less childish because there is probably other 13 and 14 year olds who's parents download the app for them that don't want/like the childish missions, filters and stickers.
Okay app but also fun
by IsabellaDogLover on 2019/08/14 22:45
So I'm 11 years old, now i mostly use regular texting to talk to people but i do use messenger kids to talk to my friends, sister and cousins who cant have regular texting yet. I’d say its a pretty good app, i have fun with the stickers, gifs and fun filters. Although the filters and stuff can be a little childish at times but thats ok. I started using this app last year when i was 10. I would recommend this app for kids if your parents wont let u regular text yet but you wanna have a way to talk to people. Although if your parents do let u regular text then i would recommend this app for 9 and UNDER. Thanks for reading this anybody.
Needs some really obvious features
by Kensington Marie on 2019/04/21 14:43
Overall this app does a decent job of what it intends, but there are some really bad design choices that could be easily fixed. During video chats, you have no options for your view; only split screen with the self view being the half closest to the camera. On a tablet, this means that you need to look away from the camera to see who you’re talking to and half of your screen real estate is wasted. Worse, the Facebook Messenger user on the other side has no idea, so they’re holding the phone vertically and don’t know that their hair and mouth are getting cut off. There’s no orientation option. You can only video chat vertically while most tablet kickstands are horizontal. I had to buy a new case just to be able to use this app without holding the iPad. Lastly, you can use a saved photo when creating an account, but after that the only profile pics you can use are ones taken in real time with the camera. It would be nice to be able to use our own pictures taken by a professional photographer. These really obvious features would bring the rating to 5 stars.
Love this
by Ftbpooh69 on 2019/06/22 03:31
I got it for my kids so that we could video chat, since I have an iPhone and they have androids. Being able to video chat with them has been amazing but I also love the added benefits. My kids have been able to keep in contact with family members and my friends kids who they’ve known or grown up with. They also had a chance to make friends with other kids of my friends that they otherwise wouldn’t have known... best part is I get a say in all of it, I love the parental controls!!! I get to say who they talk to and who can talk to them! It’s an awesome app and definitely kid friendly
Adding friends without adding them to my facebook
by teamjoe2003 on 2018/07/24 02:07
I love love love this app!! My girls are 7 and learning to spell!! This app is great for that! I love that I know every message my daughters send and receive. I LOVE that they can now text family and video chat anytime they want!! I love seeing the messages of my family talking to my girls. The only thing is I really wish I could add ‘strangers’ to my girls’ messenger. Of course they really are not strangers to us but they are not people I have on my facebook. My facebook has kind of become a sanctuary that I don’t always add everyone in my life too. But I still want my daughters to have open communication with them. 🦋
One thing I don’t get
by Backhoe cowboy on 2019/10/03 00:43
I love this app it’s just that I want to be able to create my own stickers if you look at the stickers you can either see a name or it says Facebook Inc. I am very artistic and I want to make my own stickers. Besides that I love it ,I think it’s easy to set up, very user friendly and I can talk to my friends. There is one other thing I used to be able to see what time I sent a different message than the one that started the chat but now I can’t, what is the deal with it!In some places this is a great game. I just need those things fixed please
What?
by SeannAngel on 2017/12/12 13:19
Why on earth would kids need a messenger app? I downloaded it and checked it out and it seems pretty cool and safe for them, but I mean why do they need to have this? If anything you guys at Facebook should be making better apps for the grownups. I’ve requested an actual FB Lite or at least messenger Lite app for iPhone users and get nothing. That “Friendly” for Facebook app is good, but not good enough. I have an iPhone SE, so it’s not an old or low quality phone, but it does only have 16GB of storage and just the Facebook app alone takes up WAY too much space, add in Messenger and basically all my storage for other things is filled up. Please consider making those “Lite” versions for all phones and stop wasting time on silly apps for kids. Or at least take the size of the already existing apps and cut them way back.
It’s pretty nice
by Deni-belle on 2019/07/22 20:08
It’s a good app that lets kids feel like they’re using a grown-up thing, but with limitations that parents can set. I do you however wish that I was able to look at all of the messages without having to get his phone and look through them. I feel like this is something I should be able to do from my account. I also feel like there should be more controls, as my child does tend to just make 50 group chats with no way for the parent to stop this. There is also no way to delete chat messages. Even after deleting contacts off his page, I had to create a completely new account just to remove the chat message history.
Great for keeping in contact & 1st step to independence
by Ukulele Mama on 2018/07/04 20:54
Finally an app that lets my kids, on their own, safely be in contact with friends and family. (Especially with older siblings in college or have moved out and away) Also, a great app for parents to always be in contact with their kids (especially older kids with special needs) and let them practice navigating the outside world (go places) on their own, with help if they need it, within arm’s reach. Kids feel safe and secure, and independence, and parents have peace of mind leaving their kid to experience and explore the world. Kudos.
To the creator, and people.
by Haleykp on 2019/06/18 15:36
I love 💕 the app, because to get someone in your contacts you have to send a request to your parent/Guardian. And it will censor or take away inappropriate content. But let’s get to the problem for the creator that they will hopefully make possible. The problem is that you have to take a picture you can’t take one from your Gallery and I have a picture that I won’t to set as my picture but I can’t so I hope 🤞🏻 you will fix that so that you can pick a picture from your gallery - Sincerely, Haley!
Great app. But..
by kittycatboom😍👑🦄💎 on 2019/06/12 23:29
It’s surely a great app. But,I got very upset in this issue since I had this at day 1. There’s way too much notifications and as somebody said,the kids can’t really respect privacy. So,I told my daughter “Honey,its time to have dinner,brush your teeth,and go to bed.” So,after I made food and my daughter finished it and brushed her teeth,went to bed,and had her bed time story,it was raining notifications. I had found myself really going on her account and telling her friends to stop messaging her so often. I got very upset. I mean,nobody really likes to have so many notifications! I get that they’re kids,but this isn’t fair to the parents. We need to have our privacy and sleep peacefully.
Not friends with the other parents on Facebook
by mamatron2817 on 2019/05/20 05:51
So I am not friends with my sons other parent or grandparents on Facebook and they are not good with electronics and but I am pretty’s savy and I am not sure how to add them to my sons messenger to be able to allow him to talk to them without adding them to my Facebook. Is this a possibility? If this is not an availability then it needs to be. I agree with several of the others on here saying that this app is not very user friendly when it comes to the parental controls of this app. If there are instructions I would like to be able to see them. Thank you creators if you could please contact me I would appreciate it
Great idea, needs MAJOR improvement
by amward19 on 2019/10/13 17:03
This is a good idea, but there is so much that needs to be improved. Trying to add my sons dad as a guardian was the biggest hassle ever because we aren’t friends on Facebook. It shouldn't have been so difficult seeing as how he’s one of the top people I communicate with on messenger. This is NOT user friendly at all, I had to constantly reference the internet for simple issues. Another thing that drives me insane....why can my kid send my gifs and draw me things but I can’t do the same back? I can do it with people on my messenger app, but not my own kid? Make that make sense, please Facebook. All in all it seems like this app was released without any quality improvement meeting done.
I read about it in the paper
by #MessengerKidsRocks! on 2017/12/21 22:21
I am a child but I read the newspaper and I was really excited when I saw this because you have to be 18+ to get an Facebook account and this was kinda one for kids my age and it is like the most popular app since that video of the cat playing the piano and I know some parents might be worried about there kids not getting out and learning and me myself I love school but you like my mom can set a time for them to play and a time for them to get off this is an app that is safe and I recommend it! 🤩🤩🤩
For little kids 😔
by warriorcathollyleafgirl on 2019/06/25 15:37
I really like that I can talk with my parents on this app because they have samsungs and i have a iphone 📱 but the filters are REALLY little kid stuff. Like it would be cool to add the bear from the real messenger? I tried to get into the other messenger but it wouldnt let me because I dont have a Facebook account so instead we got this. I cant wait till Im 13 so I can have facebook and not have to deal with little kid stuff. No tween things only 3-10 yr old stuff!! I really hate having little kid stuff when im almost 13!!!!!! I would give 5 stars but its for little kids! 🧒👦👧
Love the idea!
by ishii106 on 2018/10/09 11:06
I love this idea & I can't wait where this leads in the future. I see some low star reviews with comments like ”leave the kids alone” or ”why don't kids talk to you in real life?” I think those reviews are not thinking about folks that often travel for work, or like my family that's Internationally diverse. There are similar apps out there, but the majority of them are not children friendly. Many might argue that kids need to stay off digital devices, but when I'm away for weeks at a time, there's nothing comes close to seeing my kids smiling faces.
Can’t add people unless they are friends

I’m a parent, and I love this app for my 8 year old son. I love how I can add or remove contacts for my son. The only thing is I can’t add contacts who are not my friends on Facebook. My son’s dad and a lot of his family, I don’t have them as friends, but it doesn’t mean I wouldn’t want my son to keep in touch with them if he wanted to. And I don’t have the option to add them to my son’s contacts at all, even though I’ve added them as a contact in my messenger , I just don’t have them as a friend. I think it would be better if I could do that.
Good app but definitely needs improvement
by Ashy_nicole on 2019/06/24 05:14
Me and my child’s father have her account but I’m the only one who can make changes it really should allow both parents to control the chats. The child should also be able to set nicknames for people they can chat with I personally got to change mine to mommy because it allowed me to but it wouldn’t let her father change his to dad. Other than those little things it works for my 5month old daughter who loves playing on the phone and seeing our family’s faces when they video chat her
Great game but..
by ellacw06 on 2019/08/19 21:08
This game is great and all I can contact my mom my dad my nana my friends good thing your parents can look through what you’ve been saying BUT.. sometimes your parents are NOT online at all and Kids start talking about bad stuff like scercts like talking about a very very smart kid that one of your best friend are friends with and to kids are talking about them two kids like the one that is friends with the very very smart kid your kids can talk about them which is crazy I hope none is talking about me but still it’s a great game you should get it
Could be a little better...
by insertion carpet on 2018/06/26 19:58
, I mean, I’m thinking about what it would be like, if I didn’t need Wi-Fi, but come on now, I won’t let me open the app, I think it’s glitching, it won’t let me select one of my contacts, it just kicks me out of the app, could you help me, could you fix this? I can’t talk to one of my friends right now, I’m trying to click on her, but it kicks me out of the app Could be better, if it did not need Wi-Fi, And also, I love that it is very secure, great job, but, I’m do you thinking about what it would be like, if it did not need Wi-Fi
Great alternative to other chat apps!
by Trackman7911 on 2019/01/04 00:24
My children love the other chat app filters and messaging friends and family back and forth, but the ads, disappearing messages, and lack of parental control made them less than a safe bet. Finding the messenger kids app was wonderful!! My husband and I have have full control over our children’s accounts while giving them the independence of their very own account. The safety features and other controls are wonderful. We LOVE this app!
Love it
by yay! 🤗 on 2019/07/05 20:44
I love this app! I think it’s great that it’s so protective so that kids don’t talk to people they don’t know. However, I think it’s kinda annoying that you can’t choose a picture for your profile photo. I have a lot of pictures on my iPad that I want to use but it won’t let me! If there is a way to do this that I just have missed, please make it more obvious. Please fix this Problem!!!!! 🥺🥺Thank you!😁 Update: Ok so it looks like you read this review and changed it so thank you soooooo much!
Good for the kids, but a big issue.
by WyoAmber on 2019/04/08 01:32
My kids use it to talk to friends and family. I love that piece. They can talk to their family all over. However there have been several times that I get a message that says something along the lines of: please be aware we have removed a message sent by your child, you may want to review internet safety. Not exact words, but my complaint is that I don’t get to see what was removed so I have no way of knowing what it was. Sometimes my kids can tell me what it was and sometimes not. I’d really like to know what’s being removed so I know what is going on.
Amazing! But bugs need to be fixed
by Raynebow64 on 2019/08/03 16:13
Hi! I love being able to talk to my friends and call them and it’s just the best! The sticker packs are amazing to! But... somethings wrong... I changed my color to a light blue, but my chat bubbles stayed the same of a normal blue from before!! I also need to say one of my friends, she changed her profile pic, but it didn’t show up, it was just her old one, which I thought was weird. Please fix these bugs. Other than that, it’s a big five star from me!
It’s okay but I’m not in love
by HorsesRule01 on 2019/07/29 13:58
I have a hard time doing what I want and if you have an Iphone it might be harder to use such as the notifications, I don’t get a single notification about my messages. I can’t figure it out and I don’t understand why it does this. I’ve had the app for a year now and I not once have gotten a notification. But other than that it works fine. It’s to talk to people and that’s what it does. It has a hard time with the filters every once in a great while but I don’t really use them🤷🏼‍♀️. So like I said I don’t love the app but I don’t hate it I’m stuck in the middle.
Good idea but can be improved.
by Sami Family on 2018/07/21 03:06
I really wanted to love this since Facebook Messenger has been so useful to me to communicate with friends-family around the world without who aren’t iPhone users. Anyway, this app would have allowed my kids to send messages to these same family-friends. But I agree with another parent about the lack of push notifications. My kid has missed several video chat requests and messages because there was no notifications. If it weren’t for the app’s badge icon changing numbers, we’d never know about them. Please enable allow push notifications like in regular Facebook Messenger and I may bump up my star rating.
Great for not-quite teens
by vongolly on 2017/12/13 19:33
My 11yo daughter loves being able to talk to friends and family on her device, but I’m not a huge fan of her being able to delete messages or hide things. I feel like this is a great option for kids who are old enough to use a messaging program, but not quite old enough to be trusted to make great decisions 100% of the time. My only request is being able to have multiple parental controllers - our blended family has 3 individuals who should be able to monitor her account.
Needs work.
by vinylgrl on 2017/12/18 15:58
Its a really great app for older children who are learning how to use social media. With the use of other parental controls, this app allows me to communicate with my child on her ipad without the need for a cell phone. It doesn't give them the option to delete their history - which is GREAT! I have a kid that likes to frequently make bad choices. This limits that. I wish it had the option to rotate orientations for iPads that are connected to keyboards. It's inconvenient to have an app that works in only one orientation.

Description
With messenger kids... Parents Have More Control * Parents approve every contact, so kids can chat in a safer, more controlled environment. * Parents can remove any contact at any time * Parents can use sleep mode to set times when their child cannot use the app. * Messages don't disappear and can't be hidden in case parents would like to check in. * There are no ads or in-app purchases, and the app is free to download. Kids Have More Fun * Kid-appropriate stickers, GIFs, frames and emojis help kids creatively express themselves. * One-on-one or group video calls come to life with fun, interactive masks. * The feature-filled camera lets kids create videos and decorate photos to share with loved ones. Works with Messenger * Parents and parent-approved adults chat with kids through Messenger. * Works on all tablets and smartphones. * No phone number is needed - you only need Wi-Fi. Made Safer for Kids * Creating a messenger kids account for a child does not create a Facebook account for them. * Parents and guardians use their own Facebook accounts to create a messenger kids account for their child. * Kids have the option to report or block contacts and report inappropriate content. If a child submits a report, their parent or guardian will be notified. * We're always working to improve messenger kids. If you'd like to share any feedback with us or for more information, visit messengerkids.com.

Best app ever
by pineapple🌈💐🌸🐨🍎🍍🥥🍱 on 2019/10/19 14:26
This is the best app ever And I never had problems with it before and I had it for two weeks five star rating goes to this app It is kid friendly you can access all their taxes and the FaceTime and the time they use it has fun filters so they can FaceTime their friends and you . and it has a secret code so only they and you can access it and that’s a five star rating

Hi
Kids Messenger not available in our region (Puerto Rico)
by the hype master on 2019/10/14 04:02
I'm trying to set up kids messenger on my sons iPad. We are allowed to download the app but once I put my password for Facebook, an message appears that Kids Messenger is not available in our region which is Puerto Rico. I question this because my son has a friend his age here in Puerto Rico who has the Kids Messenger app. Just wondering if someone can help.
Awesome app

Great idea, needs MAJOR improvement
by amward19 on 2019/10/13 17:03
This is a good idea, but there is so much that needs to be improved. Trying to add my sons dad as a guardian was the biggest hassle ever because we aren’t friends on Facebook. It shouldn't have been so difficult seeing as how he’s one of the top people I communicate with on messenger. This is NOT user friendly at all, I had to constantly reference the internet for simple issues. Another thing that drives me insane....why can my kid send my gifs and draw me things but I can’t do the same back? I can do it with people on my messenger app, but not my own kid? Make that make sense, please Facebook. All in all it seems like this app was released without any quality improvement meeting done.
Amazing messenger
by Reesey_Tobiassen on 2019/10/13 15:59
It’s not inappropriate and I love that about it so you should really get this app I have a lot to say about it I can talk to all of my friends on it I can talk to my mom I can talk to my dad I talk my aunt my uncle‘s my softball crew and even a couple cousins I have lots of fun on this app get i now

This app has helped my daughter have fun with her friends that are far away and with friends that are near by. I’m so thankful that it is free, and that it I don’t need to have the feeling where my daughter is not safe. So I guess I just wanted to say thank you. From me and my daughter. 😁

Nothing special really
by QUUENGZCT on 2019/10/11 17:51
You should allow parents to add games that are also on our regular messenger (such as Ludo, uno, battleship etc) so that we with our kids. Actually disappointed that it didn’t already do this.
Really Fun.... but can get annoying
by TAYTAY LLAMA 1539 on 2019/10/11 00:27
This app is really fun, but when someone calls me it never rings. I have a lot of fun picking my profile picture, changing my color of the app, texting stickers, and doing games with my friends when taking to them on the phone. It is really annoying when someone calls you and it does not ring. It will just say, “You missed a call from Ashlyn”. It is really annoying and I hope that this problem will be fixed. Overall, you should get this app.

by FamilyofSharks on 2019/10/08 04:53
My little one is only 4 but I wanted a way for his aunts and uncles to send pics of their pets and for him to video call family on my old phone that he plays with and this is perfect for that. I was hesitant cause I wasn’t in a hurry to get my l/o on Facebook but I didn’t have to create an acct for him cause I manage his right from my messenger/Facebook app. His dad and I can both manage it. All tho I don’t have to worry yet, I really like that whoever is in charge of his acct (mom & dad in this case) has to approve who he can message and we can set it so he can’t message past bedtime and I think that’s an awesome feature. He can video call us, send pics, and stickers and messages. It’s super easy to use.

Hello, I’m Madelynne, I Use This App Daily. But There Is A Bug Though That Really Bothers Me. My Missions Say To Check Back Later For More Missons, But I Don’t Get New Missions. This Has Been Going On For MONTHS ON END. Please Fix This, If You Do I Will Give 5 Stars. I Also Dislike, When You Take Away Filters To Add New Ones. I Really Enjoyed Some Of The Ones You Took Away! And Also Please PLEASE Give More Profile Customizations Options, You Pick A Color, Type Your Name, And Add A Profile Picture. THATS IT. Anyways Enough With The Venting. I Really Like This App, It Lets Me Talk To My Friends, Without Having To Deal With Annoying Scammers. The Filters Are Fun And Funny, The Games Are Fun. I Can Talk To My Cousin Who Lives On The Other Side Of The Country, Bring Dreams To Life With The Filters, Stickers, And More! I Enjoy This App A Lot And Have Fun With Silly Filters. My Cousin And Best Friend And A Old Kid From My School(Who Told Me About This App) 4 Stars Good Game But There Are Thing That Make Me Annoyed. -Djdancer222 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍

by butterflygirl1324610 on 2019/10/06 12:31
Hi I love this app and all the funny filters and the drawing games. It’s all awesome, but I think the children should decide if they want that person in their lists of people to chat with. Also I love that you can make a big group of people. Still an AWESOME app for kids. Thank you for reading!

It’s okay
by Randy R Robbins on 2019/10/05 05:37
This is a good app for kids but a couple things I think this app could use major improvement on would be a redesign of the logo just make it a solid green similar to regular messenger It would also be great if just instead of the two messenger versions there is a version for teens as well with more features than the kid version but less than the adult version
It’s a fun thing
by monkerdunker10 on 2019/10/05 00:19
It’s just a fun and funny communicating app that we all should have and you can’t say anything bad on it not even the poop emoji but ya I love it it’s a very fun thing to play and to talk on it . The faces is almost like Snapchat so ya I recommend this💙

by WaysToBeWicked_DisFan on 2019/10/04 21:46
I type computer faces even though I use my phone (an example would be :D) and so does the one friend I constantly talk to on this app. It annoys BOTH of us that when you type faces like T-T or :P it turns into 😭 and 😛. It does that with other faces too and I don’t like it xD. Please add a setting so that you can FIX THIS.
Not iPad-friendly
by All Nicknames R Taken 3719 on 2019/10/04 05:03
First of all, most text notifications don’t even say the message! They just say “so and so sent you a message.” Also, the app doesn’t even support landscape on iPad! It’s SOOOOOOooo annoying that I have to rotate my iPad every time I use this app! Multitask support would be nice too. Thank you for reading. Other than these things, this app is only moderately a bad experience for you and your kids.

One thing I don’t get
by Backhoe cowboy on 2019/10/03 00:43
I love this app it’s just that I want to be able to create my own stickers if you look at the stickers you can either see a name or it says Facebook Inc. I am very artistic and I want to make my own stickers. Besides that I love it ,I think it’s easy to set up, very user friendly and I can talk to my friends. There is one other thing I used to be able to see what time I sent a different message than the one that started the chat but now I can’t, what is the deal with it!In some places this is a great game. I just need those things fixed please
Love it but there is one problem

Things I don’t trust about this
by M.j.s.t on 2019/09/30 22:45
I know my kid has no friend, only his family members (not siblings,they don’t use the app). But I don’t really trust my kid(s) using apps made by the developers that made other apps for adults, take Instagram and messenger as an example.Instagram is made by the developers of Facebook and Messenger , am I right? My kids and all their classmates use these apps when they are only for older people,there can be pedophiles , strangers and/or kidnappers! But I will make sure that my kids don’t have random people I don’t know about as their contacts , I am just a little afraid that someone might rob my precious cats.

My family members that are kids that are using messenger kids all try to send me thing like “guess what this picture is” and other apps and games that are not accessible in messenger and so if like my niece sends me one of those pictures from messenger kids, I can’t open it and can’t play
Not private and not safe
by brittacular71 on 2019/09/30 01:49
I had only one contact for my son. And that was it I never told any family and then my SIL called us asking why my son Leif had an account on Facebook he popped up as a suggested friend. How in the hack is it supposed to be safe for kids if random adults can get suggested to be his friend!? Deleted his messenger and I’m never using this app again

by Alex Wanke on 2019/09/29 15:43
So helpful for me to connect with my kids, it helps me talk to them in like sleepovers too! It makes them happy and the funny filters are cute! But there is one thing that’s bad.. there can be glitches.. inappropriate things.. and wired people that try to FaceTime my kids! And the ONE thing I HATE is that you have to ask your parent to get someone online with you. It sends me 71 approvals 24/7 a day! I hope you can fix some thanks, bye! -Alex Wanke

by dloglovergurl14 on 2019/09/29 14:33
I love this app because it is so simple and awesome for kids and parents/grandparents I also really like that parents can see everyone their child messages and that they have to approve their contacts. I give this app 5 stars because it is amazing! I highly recommend this app to people of all ages.

by -Half & Half on 2019/09/25 18:48
Is wonderful when working. However, for the past month whenever I try to use it, it always says waiting to reconnect and I can’t receive messages when this happens and my messages won’t send. Deleting and redownloading the app won’t stop the issue, as you can’t get back in to your old account even though it shows up. Needless to say, I won’t be using this until this is fixed.🤣😡 P.S. there is also no emergency feature. There should be one that works 24/7. In my opinion, of course. -Half & Half.
Pretty good- needs improvement
by momsofdaughters on 2019/09/25 15:18
I like the application. It helps my daughter stay in touch with her friends and extended family. I wish there were more safety protocols. I want to see the conversations she is having. I want to see more of who she is communicating with. I want to be flagged when certain words are used. I want to be able to set more limits on times and photo sharing. For an app designed for children to use, they really missed the mark on safety features.

I love this app! I can message people without worrying about contacts, creepy people geting permission to text me, etc. But, I have found that when I got a phone, my notifications stopped working. Now I have to check the app to see if someone messages me! Please fix this.

When I created the app for Mya I thought I was making it for her and it was me then it would not let me change the name to me .... I’m grandma Dail, not Mya Tess COPELAND ... w can I change that, her mother set her up under her name now it is confusing for our 16 grand children and 10 kids, can you make it in my name Dail Mashek or Grandma Dail would do... thank you:)

I’m 10 years old so I don’t really know or care about the whole grown ups phones blowing up deal. However I’m writing this review to tell you a little bit about the kids side. This game is so funny even if no ones answering you, you can still play with the filters and stuff like that. Also, I feel like it has way better connection than normal face time. Another cool thing is this, so have you ever gotten tired of an apps color or background? Well on messenger kids you can change the background color and text color (parents cannot do this😂)and I think that is a fun touch. Oh! I almost forgot you can chat with up to 4 people at e a time and parents don’t be scared, kids have to get a unique one of a kind passwords order to talk to random people. I highly recommend getting this game!!!😘 P.s. I’m not a very electronic type Pearson I would MUCH rather be playing outside or dancing, however when it comes to chatting with friends, COUNT ME IN!!!😉😁🙃

Contacts list parents can see is faulty
by sjdim on 2018/11/26 14:32
First of all, it’s not easy figuring out how to delete contacts or add new ones once you have finished initial set up. When I finally figured it out (I had to google it, after I tried downloading the app directly onto my phone to see it I could access parental controls that way), finding out that you access this control from you Facebook account, the contact lists for my two kids were not showing all their contacts. I know this because there were a few relatives I was specifically looking for to delete (not for bad reasons on their part, but just because my kids were bugging them a lot), and they show up on the app for my kids, but not for me to delete from my end. I had to go out of the parental controls for each of my kids and then back in again several times and each time a new contact that previously had not shown up, showed up. It’s really weird. And even still on one of my kids accounts, from my end, it says she does not have her dad as a contact, but I know she does as she messages him all the time on there. This issue needs to be fixed ASAP!
My kids love this.. but literally NO boundaries
by Newtonka on 2019/05/20 00:32
I have had this app for ONE day and my phone is nonstop blowing up. I have turned all notifications off (which I’d rather not have to do) However. There is not any type of a silent mode or an option to not contact the kids at a certain time. Even with zero notifications my phone keeps going off with all of the phone calls coming in from my child’s friends. Like 10x/minute. It is way too much. I have found myself logging on asking my daughters friends to please respect that it is bedtime. There needs to be some boundaries on this app! Like there should be a “do not disturb” option and also a function that requires parents permission for FaceTiming. Giving them access to chat at any time with friends is a complete invasion of privacy. My daughter respects it once I catch on that she’s FaceTiming.. but I should be able to allow the time frame when she has access to do it period. Already had a “moment” where I had to raise my voice and she’s literally FaceTiming with a friend.. who is in front of her parents.. and they heard everything. Beyond uncomfortable knowing that our privacy is invaded by kids that are just doing what the app allows them to get away with. More boundaries please or this thing is getting deleted. It is overwhelming after day 1.

Hello, I’m Madelynne, I Use This App Daily. But There Is A Bug Though That Really Bothers Me. My Missions Say To Check Back Later For More Missons, But I Don’t Get New Missions. This Has Been Going On For MONTHS ON END. Please Fix This, If You Do I Will Give 5 Stars. I Also Dislike, When You Take Away Filters To Add New Ones. I Really Enjoyed Some Of The Ones You Took Away! And Also Please PLEASE Give More Profile Customizations Options, You Pick A Color, Type Your Name, And Add A Profile Picture. THATS IT. Anyways Enough With The Venting. I Really Like This App, It Lets Me Talk To My Friends, Without Having To Deal With Annoying Scammers. The Filters Are Fun And Funny, The Games Are Fun. I Can Talk To My Cousin Who Lives On The Other Side Of The Country, Bring Dreams To Life With The Filters, Stickers, And More! I Enjoy This App A Lot And Have Fun With Silly Filters. My Cousin And Best Friend And A Old Kid From My School(Who Told Me About This App) 4 Stars Good Game But There Are Thing That Make Me Annoyed. -Djdancer222 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍
Instagram Kids please!!
by instagram_kids_please on 2019/08/08 13:54
Hi! I absolutely LOVE Messenger Kids!! I had an idea this morning that maybe since Messenger kids is so good, could you think about making Instagram Kids? It would be a super safe app where the kids ALL have private accounts and have to request to their parents to see their friends posts and stuff like that! You can choose and appropriate nickname, You can post stuff (privately) and put stuff (privately) on your story! Every post that goes up on Instagram Kids would be moderated before being seen by your friends! Your friends would ask your mom and their mom to see your page and you can only dm the people your parents say you can! The only people who can follow you would be your friends! I think this would be super fun for me and my friends, I really hope you will consider making this app!!!! I am really, really, REALLY hoping you make this app because I am not allowed to have any social media and my mom would let me have this! Please make it!!!! 🙏🙏🙏
I don’t see the problem
by Flashgirl16 on 2019/05/23 12:32
To all the parents reading this—what’s the big deal? I use this app often to talk to friends. I have to admit (although I’m not a teenager yet) the filters are a little childish but me and my friend have fun with them anyways because of how ridiculous both of us are 😂. I’ve been reading the reviews, there was a kid younger then me complaining about how we should be outside and not remembering our childhoods using this app for 2 hours at a time............really? I see no problems with it. Call me a nerd but I play Dungeons and Dragons and this app is handy when I want to talk to my friend about what we’ll do next. Everyone says it’s glitchy but aside from when you are FaceTiming the person you are on the phone with you always appears closer to the screen then they actually are. If you don’t like getting so many notifications, power the device off. No big deal. I’ve been using this for a few months and I enjoy it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Great app more filters though
by kline merchkowski on 2018/10/25 00:42
This app is great for a mom who is a little bit of a safety freak especially about social media this was a BIG step for me I am a teenager and I think some filters are cool like the fish one but we need some more grown up ones it’s hard to send a funny pic to someone with a dumb filter I am all about comedy but I need stuff to work with like a dog face filter from Snapchat that would be nice to have I can co tact my friends and talk to them the app load pretty fast and the softer downloads faster great idea for kids when you don’t want them to have complete access to the world but I wish we had more grown up filters because I would use them to send to my friends who don’t have this please review this I would appreciate some more filters thank you!
Great but needs improvement.
by amoreash on 2019/01/11 20:43
So i really like the app, but its limited. Needs to allow more then 2 people to control it for those that co parent like i do with girlfriends and such. The parents should be allow to delete group chats or edit anything without having to go onto there account in there app. Should be able to edit the main picture with pictures and not just taking one and lock it if need to, to keep them from doing random photos. Should be able to lock them from making group chats or messaging certain people at any point n not just block times they can do it. So they can be edited how many times they try to annoy someone by repeat calling them. These would help since i dont have her all the time. Or allow people who don't have Facebook to create there kids account. I have quite a lot of ideas i think could be improved, but over all its great for the little ones. Just working on respect with how to use it properly. Maybe can have videos to show them how to properly use it for kids to learn.
Something I really want to happen
by WildScarletGirl on 2019/09/19 22:48
I really think in the group thing that when someone creates a group, Like all my friends wanna know each other when they don’t have contacts. One of my friends lives in LA when the other lives here in my town. There should be a request pop up that says this person wants to create a group with this person. But instead right now they have to both have contacts. It is sad because we both play the same game. Also, when ever I’m playing with one friend, the other thinks we can play and be alone. Then I have to end the call then tell them which will make them sad, then I would call my other friend back! To conclude this TORTURING THING I whould likes to have this fixed with a request not a contact needed.😠😠
Disappointed
by shawkids on 2019/06/20 22:26
Not sure why this app is getting rave reviews. I have three kids that wanted to keep in touch with their cousins. It was a pain to set up. It was also very confusing. They’d be trying to call each other and every call would call me also. I have about 15 missed calls from the app. I was also getting every single message they sent- which isn’t a bad thing but kind of tedious when they are just sending stickers to each other. Managing the accts left a lot to be desired. I couldn’t modify or delete any accidentally made chats. So they had multiple chats open and it got confusing for them. Also I would message my niece and it would show up on my daughters phone. She had no idea who wrote them. As a parent I shouldn’t be getting all that. I should be able to modify and see who wrote what in all chats. So as of now I’m going to delete and hope that some major overhaul changes happen. Cause for me it was headache inducing and not ideal for the kids.
Please Read!
by PrincessAmber504 on 2018/12/19 02:41
I absolutely love this app, but there is a small Problem! My friends and I chat a lot and they’re always sending me stuff! But they have this app feature where the get to send stuff and the person has to “Guess The Drawing”. Now When I found this out, I looked and searched the app for it. I asked them where they found it and it was by the contacts. I was looking but nothing was there! And some of these friends have had the app for less time I have! I check almost every single day and it has been weeks and nothing has shown up! I check App Store to look for updates of it and still nothing! What do I do!? I really like this feature but It won’t work! Please respond and send me an answer. I really need it

I didn’t used to have messenger until I saw this I couldn’t talk to my cousin my mom or basically anyone without my mom’s phone and I think that you guys just want to thing OK just kidding it’s amazing you can drawl you can decorate something you can make groups I named two groups one is called the guacamole lizard another one is called the crazy lizard can you guys share the pictures I made a picture just like that it’s a person holding a cat I have a fat cat she’s not very very very fat but I know a cat that is super fat his name is Joey but his nickname for me is JoJo he is mean to me sometimes he is sweet to me sometimes he scratches me sometimes he is amazing I love cats and I love people only if they’re nice people I love Mac and cheese pizza it’s amazing🍕🍟
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE BUBBLE COLORS D:<
by Elew1014 on 2019/08/03 14:09
Okey so I chat with my friends and us 3 have a different bubble color. And when you go to the message spot then you can see their color along with yours. But this morning when I got on O SEE THAT THE COLOR OF THE PERSON IM TALKING TO IS NOW GRAY! Why is it like this? I DON’T LIKE IT. The colors are what made the whole thing unique and fun! BUT WHY REMOVE THE BEST PART! CHANGE IT BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACK! GIVE BACK THE COLORS AND FUN OR IM DONE USING THIS. I used it last night and it had lots of fun color. And I went to our group chat to see what everyone sent. Then I noticed something wasn’t right. The bubbles were gray. So I went to one of my friends and their color was gray. It’s usually light blue though. And my other friend is a purplish pink color. BUT THEY WERE BOTH GRAY. Oh and take note this happened OVERNIGHT. SO THAT’S WHY I RATE 2 STARS. BECAUSE ALL THE FUN WAS TAKEN OUT OF IT. I DON’T LIKE THE GRAY!!! JUST PUT THE COLORS BACK IN! THAT’S ALL IM ASKING FOR! THEN I’D GIVE IT 5 STARS! -I’m not telling you my name ÒwÓ
Pretty good!
by xxtqa on 2018/10/02 23:13
I think this app is really good! I’m a military kid and I’m going to be moving soon so this'll be useful for when I move. You shouldn’t really listen to parents who write bad reviews saying stuff like “Kids should be going outside not texting!” Etc. Because honestly it isn’t true. I still go outside, I love going outside! The only thing really preventing me from going outside is how hot it is (I’m in Hawaii) It also did help when a hurricane happened recently I was worried about my friend and I was able to talk to her during the hurricane! Off of that tangent.... There has been a few glitches. Sometimes when my friend gives me a voice message my phone blacks out (may be just my phone though) and, my friends account got deleted(?) she didn’t get reported her account just got deleted somehow. It would be great to know what caused it/how to fix it.
This needs to be fixed
by Capt’n Merica on 2018/12/28 17:42
Just found out fake facebook accounts are making fake Messenger kids accounts and I found my “kids” page controlled by one pf those facebook accounts. I am in my 30’s, with a month old facebook picture of me in the thumb nail of this fake acct. There should be no way in heck that this should be allowed. I tested the app to figure out the controls and how this happened. The fake account owner had to have lied about my age to make this account, or just pressed skip. They used my full name and my old fb profile picture. PLEASE SOMEONE WITH POWER IN FACEBOOK. Delete these accounts, force age requirements, and do something about comparing pictures used in this app with adults with real facebook accounts to prevent these fakes from being made, before this gets out of hand. You have facial recognition software, how do you not have a system that can see the picture for this fake acct matches a real acct that clearly is too old to use this app?!
Easy to use, great for the littles
by FamilyofSharks on 2019/10/08 04:53
My little one is only 4 but I wanted a way for his aunts and uncles to send pics of their pets and for him to video call family on my old phone that he plays with and this is perfect for that. I was hesitant cause I wasn’t in a hurry to get my l/o on Facebook but I didn’t have to create an acct for him cause I manage his right from my messenger/Facebook app. His dad and I can both manage it. All tho I don’t have to worry yet, I really like that whoever is in charge of his acct (mom & dad in this case) has to approve who he can message and we can set it so he can’t message past bedtime and I think that’s an awesome feature. He can video call us, send pics, and stickers and messages. It’s super easy to use.
This is mostly an excellent app, a few improvements needed
by worstellar on 2019/03/04 22:30
This app has been really wonderful for my 8 year old son. It has given him the opportunity to initiate contact with his same aged cousins, grandparents, and aunts/uncles and this has been a wonderful thing for him. We are still teaching him boundaries with it and it would be nice for the app to include a few additional features: 1. I feel that the guardians for the child should be able to override a conversation they are currently in. 2. Guardians should be able to see exactly what time a call was made or received and how long that conversation was. 3. It would be nice to have a quick “go to sleep” button if the app needs to go to sleep for the child outside of the specified regular awake times.
Yes!
by Bklyn Jenny on 2019/01/19 16:01
My 3 yr old knows how to easily navigate this app. I love that my kids (ages 11 and down to 3 yrs) can use it to stay in contact with their cousins and grandparents without an actual FB account (currently not an option in our household for children under 17 yrs). We love that contacts can only be added by us (they don’t even get to see friend suggestions, and others don’t see them under ‘friend suggestions’ either). The only thing is that I hope a future update will allow us to set time curfews for each of their contacts. My brother in Cali has a 5 yr old. Between my daughters and his, they sometimes try to call each other at inappropriate times. Lol. Otherwise great app! I love it.
Great except for no push notifications!
by kelkatt on 2018/01/28 09:15
This app is really awesome and fun to connect with my grandson. Unfortunately, that’s not easy to do because we do not receive push notifications when we are calling or messaging each other. So we have missed video chat calls and messages are often not seen for hours or the next day. I have notifications enabled on both ends. I made a messenger kids account for myself to use with him so we would have the same masks and other options (plus I just like those masks!) However, the only way he can reach me is to call me on my regular messenger, where I get the push notifications. But if I am calling him, he has no idea and that defeats the purpose. I really hope that you fix this issue soon, please! Then I will gladly give 5 stars. Thank you for this app!
I love it
by horse lover girl 999 on 2019/07/28 15:13
Right now it’s summer and I have had the app since December and I can talk to my cousins who live super way away and my grandma who lives a few towns away my cousins that live a few towns away I can talk to them as well I can also talk to my mom on the family iPad it will give her a message on her phone or computer. If you have family that lives far away and you can’t really talk to them I would suggest this app Now I will tell about the app, you can send messages, face time and draw for people to guess then you can take pictures you can take a plan picture but you can draw on it or on with filters I think that’s what their called Bye I hope you get the app and 😉
glitches
by MammaMiaXOXO on 2018/05/28 02:24
Both my kids have Samsung tablets and I downloaded this app. I created their accounts with only family members as contacts. I noticed the contacts aren’t showing up on one of the tablets and on the other they can message anyone I’ve ever had in my main Facebook account which is totally unsafe. After deleting and re installing i just deleted it off both tablets due to the fact they can message anyone without having to ask and all the contacts I put as ok aren’t even showing up on the list. However I downloaded this app on my iPhone and it works perfectly. They can only see the contacts I added and no one else. However my kids don’t have iPhones for now and won’t be getting any, anytime soon so for now good bye Facebook messenger for kids. 😢
Not really going to use it
by Not impressed 😡🎀👌🏻🐳🐶 on 2018/06/22 02:52
I'm 13 going to be 14 and my parents installed this on my iPod, I get that the app is supposed to be a way kids can text their parents especially if they have an iPod or iPad but since I'm a teen I already have snapchat and Instagram to text my dad. I would use the app more to talk to my family if I didn't need wifi to use it. I know adults think kids now don't go outside often and always need to be connected to wifi, and yes I do stay inside a lot but me and my parents go camping so I don't have any wifi so when my parents go to an activity that's just for adults I have no way to contact them. Also there should be a teen mod that's less childish because there is probably other 13 and 14 year olds who's parents download the app for them that don't want/like the childish missions, filters and stickers.
Okay app but also fun
by IsabellaDogLover on 2019/08/14 22:45
So I'm 11 years old, now i mostly use regular texting to talk to people but i do use messenger kids to talk to my friends, sister and cousins who cant have regular texting yet. I’d say its a pretty good app, i have fun with the stickers, gifs and fun filters. Although the filters and stuff can be a little childish at times but thats ok. I started using this app last year when i was 10. I would recommend this app for kids if your parents wont let u regular text yet but you wanna have a way to talk to people. Although if your parents do let u regular text then i would recommend this app for 9 and UNDER. Thanks for reading this anybody.
Needs some really obvious features
by Kensington Marie on 2019/04/21 14:43
Overall this app does a decent job of what it intends, but there are some really bad design choices that could be easily fixed. During video chats, you have no options for your view; only split screen with the self view being the half closest to the camera. On a tablet, this means that you need to look away from the camera to see who you’re talking to and half of your screen real estate is wasted. Worse, the Facebook Messenger user on the other side has no idea, so they’re holding the phone vertically and don’t know that their hair and mouth are getting cut off. There’s no orientation option. You can only video chat vertically while most tablet kickstands are horizontal. I had to buy a new case just to be able to use this app without holding the iPad. Lastly, you can use a saved photo when creating an account, but after that the only profile pics you can use are ones taken in real time with the camera. It would be nice to be able to use our own pictures taken by a professional photographer. These really obvious features would bring the rating to 5 stars.
Love this

I got it for my kids so that we could video chat, since I have an iPhone and they have androids. Being able to video chat with them has been amazing but I also love the added benefits. My kids have been able to keep in contact with family members and my friends kids who they’ve known or grown up with. They also had a chance to make friends with other kids of my friends that they otherwise wouldn’t have known... best part is I get a say in all of it, I love the parental controls!!! I get to say who they talk to and who can talk to them! It’s an awesome app and definitely kid friendly
Adding friends without adding them to my facebook
by teamjoe2003 on 2018/07/24 02:07
I love love love this app!! My girls are 7 and learning to spell!! This app is great for that! I love that I know every message my daughters send and receive. I LOVE that they can now text family and video chat anytime they want!! I love seeing the messages of my family talking to my girls. The only thing is I really wish I could add ‘strangers’ to my girls’ messenger. Of course they really are not strangers to us but they are not people I have on my facebook. My facebook has kind of become a sanctuary that I don’t always add everyone in my life too. But I still want my daughters to have open communication with them. 🦋
One thing I don’t get
by Backhoe cowboy on 2019/10/03 00:43
I love this app it’s just that I want to be able to create my own stickers if you look at the stickers you can either see a name or it says Facebook Inc. I am very artistic and I want to make my own stickers. Besides that I love it ,I think it’s easy to set up, very user friendly and I can talk to my friends. There is one other thing I used to be able to see what time I sent a different message than the one that started the chat but now I can’t, what is the deal with it!In some places this is a great game. I just need those things fixed please
What?
by SeannAngel on 2017/12/12 13:19
Why on earth would kids need a messenger app? I downloaded it and checked it out and it seems pretty cool and safe for them, but I mean why do they need to have this? If anything you guys at Facebook should be making better apps for the grownups. I’ve requested an actual FB Lite or at least messenger Lite app for iPhone users and get nothing. That “Friendly” for Facebook app is good, but not good enough. I have an iPhone SE, so it’s not an old or low quality phone, but it does only have 16GB of storage and just the Facebook app alone takes up WAY too much space, add in Messenger and basically all my storage for other things is filled up. Please consider making those “Lite” versions for all phones and stop wasting time on silly apps for kids. Or at least take the size of the already existing apps and cut them way back.
It’s pretty nice
by Deni-belle on 2019/07/22 20:08
It’s a good app that lets kids feel like they’re using a grown-up thing, but with limitations that parents can set. I do you however wish that I was able to look at all of the messages without having to get his phone and look through them. I feel like this is something I should be able to do from my account. I also feel like there should be more controls, as my child does tend to just make 50 group chats with no way for the parent to stop this. There is also no way to delete chat messages. Even after deleting contacts off his page, I had to create a completely new account just to remove the chat message history.
Great for keeping in contact & 1st step to independence
by Ukulele Mama on 2018/07/04 20:54
Finally an app that lets my kids, on their own, safely be in contact with friends and family. (Especially with older siblings in college or have moved out and away) Also, a great app for parents to always be in contact with their kids (especially older kids with special needs) and let them practice navigating the outside world (go places) on their own, with help if they need it, within arm’s reach. Kids feel safe and secure, and independence, and parents have peace of mind leaving their kid to experience and explore the world. Kudos.
To the creator, and people.
by Haleykp on 2019/06/18 15:36
I love 💕 the app, because to get someone in your contacts you have to send a request to your parent/Guardian. And it will censor or take away inappropriate content. But let’s get to the problem for the creator that they will hopefully make possible. The problem is that you have to take a picture you can’t take one from your Gallery and I have a picture that I won’t to set as my picture but I can’t so I hope 🤞🏻 you will fix that so that you can pick a picture from your gallery - Sincerely, Haley!
Great app. But..
by kittycatboom😍👑🦄💎 on 2019/06/12 23:29
It’s surely a great app. But,I got very upset in this issue since I had this at day 1. There’s way too much notifications and as somebody said,the kids can’t really respect privacy. So,I told my daughter “Honey,its time to have dinner,brush your teeth,and go to bed.” So,after I made food and my daughter finished it and brushed her teeth,went to bed,and had her bed time story,it was raining notifications. I had found myself really going on her account and telling her friends to stop messaging her so often. I got very upset. I mean,nobody really likes to have so many notifications! I get that they’re kids,but this isn’t fair to the parents. We need to have our privacy and sleep peacefully.
Not friends with the other parents on Facebook
by mamatron2817 on 2019/05/20 05:51
So I am not friends with my sons other parent or grandparents on Facebook and they are not good with electronics and but I am pretty’s savy and I am not sure how to add them to my sons messenger to be able to allow him to talk to them without adding them to my Facebook. Is this a possibility? If this is not an availability then it needs to be. I agree with several of the others on here saying that this app is not very user friendly when it comes to the parental controls of this app. If there are instructions I would like to be able to see them. Thank you creators if you could please contact me I would appreciate it
Great idea, needs MAJOR improvement
by amward19 on 2019/10/13 17:03
This is a good idea, but there is so much that needs to be improved. Trying to add my sons dad as a guardian was the biggest hassle ever because we aren’t friends on Facebook. It shouldn't have been so difficult seeing as how he’s one of the top people I communicate with on messenger. This is NOT user friendly at all, I had to constantly reference the internet for simple issues. Another thing that drives me insane....why can my kid send my gifs and draw me things but I can’t do the same back? I can do it with people on my messenger app, but not my own kid? Make that make sense, please Facebook. All in all it seems like this app was released without any quality improvement meeting done.
I read about it in the paper
by #MessengerKidsRocks! on 2017/12/21 22:21
I am a child but I read the newspaper and I was really excited when I saw this because you have to be 18+ to get an Facebook account and this was kinda one for kids my age and it is like the most popular app since that video of the cat playing the piano and I know some parents might be worried about there kids not getting out and learning and me myself I love school but you like my mom can set a time for them to play and a time for them to get off this is an app that is safe and I recommend it! 🤩🤩🤩
For little kids 😔
by warriorcathollyleafgirl on 2019/06/25 15:37
I really like that I can talk with my parents on this app because they have samsungs and i have a iphone 📱 but the filters are REALLY little kid stuff. Like it would be cool to add the bear from the real messenger? I tried to get into the other messenger but it wouldnt let me because I dont have a Facebook account so instead we got this. I cant wait till Im 13 so I can have facebook and not have to deal with little kid stuff. No tween things only 3-10 yr old stuff!! I really hate having little kid stuff when im almost 13!!!!!! I would give 5 stars but its for little kids! 🧒👦👧
Love the idea!
by ishii106 on 2018/10/09 11:06
I love this idea & I can't wait where this leads in the future. I see some low star reviews with comments like ”leave the kids alone” or ”why don't kids talk to you in real life?” I think those reviews are not thinking about folks that often travel for work, or like my family that's Internationally diverse. There are similar apps out there, but the majority of them are not children friendly. Many might argue that kids need to stay off digital devices, but when I'm away for weeks at a time, there's nothing comes close to seeing my kids smiling faces.
Can’t add people unless they are friends
by Xm---- on 2018/12/04 12:20
I’m a parent, and I love this app for my 8 year old son. I love how I can add or remove contacts for my son. The only thing is I can’t add contacts who are not my friends on Facebook. My son’s dad and a lot of his family, I don’t have them as friends, but it doesn’t mean I wouldn’t want my son to keep in touch with them if he wanted to. And I don’t have the option to add them to my son’s contacts at all, even though I’ve added them as a contact in my messenger , I just don’t have them as a friend. I think it would be better if I could do that.
Good app but definitely needs improvement
by Ashy_nicole on 2019/06/24 05:14
Me and my child’s father have her account but I’m the only one who can make changes it really should allow both parents to control the chats. The child should also be able to set nicknames for people they can chat with I personally got to change mine to mommy because it allowed me to but it wouldn’t let her father change his to dad. Other than those little things it works for my 5month old daughter who loves playing on the phone and seeing our family’s faces when they video chat her
Great game but..
by ellacw06 on 2019/08/19 21:08
This game is great and all I can contact my mom my dad my nana my friends good thing your parents can look through what you’ve been saying BUT.. sometimes your parents are NOT online at all and Kids start talking about bad stuff like scercts like talking about a very very smart kid that one of your best friend are friends with and to kids are talking about them two kids like the one that is friends with the very very smart kid your kids can talk about them which is crazy I hope none is talking about me but still it’s a great game you should get it
Could be a little better...
by insertion carpet on 2018/06/26 19:58
, I mean, I’m thinking about what it would be like, if I didn’t need Wi-Fi, but come on now, I won’t let me open the app, I think it’s glitching, it won’t let me select one of my contacts, it just kicks me out of the app, could you help me, could you fix this? I can’t talk to one of my friends right now, I’m trying to click on her, but it kicks me out of the app Could be better, if it did not need Wi-Fi, And also, I love that it is very secure, great job, but, I’m do you thinking about what it would be like, if it did not need Wi-Fi
Great alternative to other chat apps!
by Trackman7911 on 2019/01/04 00:24
My children love the other chat app filters and messaging friends and family back and forth, but the ads, disappearing messages, and lack of parental control made them less than a safe bet. Finding the messenger kids app was wonderful!! My husband and I have have full control over our children’s accounts while giving them the independence of their very own account. The safety features and other controls are wonderful. We LOVE this app!
Love it
by yay! 🤗 on 2019/07/05 20:44
I love this app! I think it’s great that it’s so protective so that kids don’t talk to people they don’t know. However, I think it’s kinda annoying that you can’t choose a picture for your profile photo. I have a lot of pictures on my iPad that I want to use but it won’t let me! If there is a way to do this that I just have missed, please make it more obvious. Please fix this Problem!!!!! 🥺🥺Thank you!😁 Update: Ok so it looks like you read this review and changed it so thank you soooooo much!
Good for the kids, but a big issue.
by WyoAmber on 2019/04/08 01:32
My kids use it to talk to friends and family. I love that piece. They can talk to their family all over. However there have been several times that I get a message that says something along the lines of: please be aware we have removed a message sent by your child, you may want to review internet safety. Not exact words, but my complaint is that I don’t get to see what was removed so I have no way of knowing what it was. Sometimes my kids can tell me what it was and sometimes not. I’d really like to know what’s being removed so I know what is going on.
Amazing! But bugs need to be fixed
by Raynebow64 on 2019/08/03 16:13
Hi! I love being able to talk to my friends and call them and it’s just the best! The sticker packs are amazing to! But... somethings wrong... I changed my color to a light blue, but my chat bubbles stayed the same of a normal blue from before!! I also need to say one of my friends, she changed her profile pic, but it didn’t show up, it was just her old one, which I thought was weird. Please fix these bugs. Other than that, it’s a big five star from me!
It’s okay but I’m not in love
by HorsesRule01 on 2019/07/29 13:58
I have a hard time doing what I want and if you have an Iphone it might be harder to use such as the notifications, I don’t get a single notification about my messages. I can’t figure it out and I don’t understand why it does this. I’ve had the app for a year now and I not once have gotten a notification. But other than that it works fine. It’s to talk to people and that’s what it does. It has a hard time with the filters every once in a great while but I don’t really use them🤷🏼‍♀️. So like I said I don’t love the app but I don’t hate it I’m stuck in the middle.
Good idea but can be improved.
by Sami Family on 2018/07/21 03:06
I really wanted to love this since Facebook Messenger has been so useful to me to communicate with friends-family around the world without who aren’t iPhone users. Anyway, this app would have allowed my kids to send messages to these same family-friends. But I agree with another parent about the lack of push notifications. My kid has missed several video chat requests and messages because there was no notifications. If it weren’t for the app’s badge icon changing numbers, we’d never know about them. Please enable allow push notifications like in regular Facebook Messenger and I may bump up my star rating.
Great for not-quite teens
by vongolly on 2017/12/13 19:33
My 11yo daughter loves being able to talk to friends and family on her device, but I’m not a huge fan of her being able to delete messages or hide things. I feel like this is a great option for kids who are old enough to use a messaging program, but not quite old enough to be trusted to make great decisions 100% of the time. My only request is being able to have multiple parental controllers - our blended family has 3 individuals who should be able to monitor her account.
Needs work.
by vinylgrl on 2017/12/18 15:58
Its a really great app for older children who are learning how to use social media. With the use of other parental controls, this app allows me to communicate with my child on her ipad without the need for a cell phone. It doesn't give them the option to delete their history - which is GREAT! I have a kid that likes to frequently make bad choices. This limits that. I wish it had the option to rotate orientations for iPads that are connected to keyboards. It's inconvenient to have an app that works in only one orientation.
