PBS Kids Rolls Out New Games App


ARLINGTON: PBS Kids is offering children in the U.S. free access to its learning games anytime, anywhere through the launch of a new application.

The PBS Kids Games app offers a library of free learning games in a mobile experience and is designed for kids aged 2 to 8. It features games from hit PBS Kids series such as Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood and Wild Kratts, as well as a kid-friendly user experience, the ability to save favorite games to a device to play while offline, and parent resources. In addition, new games that encourage kids to explore math, science, creativity and more will be added to the app regularly.

The app is available for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, as well as for Android devices via Google Play. It will soon be available for Amazon Fire tablets in the Amazon Appstore. PBS Kids offers more than 40 applications, including the free PBS Kids Video app.

“We know that kids can learn through engaging gameplay,” said Sara DeWitt, the VP of PBS Kids Digital. “PBS Kids is a trusted digital resource for families; both kids and parents have asked for an app that offers their favorite PBS Kids games in one place. The PBS Kids Games app was developed as a direct response to the needs of today’s families, and is designed to deliver the experience that kids want, while helping them learn important skills along the way.”
