The educational content is pretty basic, so the higher end of the 3-to-8 age range may be a stretch for many kids. But for preschoolers and kindergarten-age kids, its has a lot of educational content that will be just right for their age, and more than just right in fun and laughs. Many kids love to imagine themselves included in stories, and this app puts them front and center. Kids can use the books, videos, and a dancing game on StoryBots - Learning Books, Videos and Games.
