    Not working
  • Lots of bugs while in the shapes section

    By Raksha Rathnam
    If you can fix the bugs that will not move the shape or will move the shape but also zoom in the shape. It’ll also be nice to have an option to resume where it was left.
  • Fantastic

    By OOOhhh AnnaBella
    My daughter is 2 with some speech delays. She is learning so much. I’ve honestly never seen an app that is so powerful and I’ve been downloading educational apps since my son was 2, he is 11 now. There are so many different things to do, she never gets bored. I paid the yearly rate. Very much worth it.
  • No audio

    By Grandma of a three year old
    I have installed deleted and reinstalled this twice now and cannot get any audio at all. I've tried iPad settings on enable for sound and notifications and still no audio whatsoever.
  • Stunning!

    This app is gorgeous. The kids adore playing with it even though it's educational!
  • Stopped working

    By smittySS
    Was great when it would work, now the app just freezes any time I open it. This rendering it useless.
  • Unable to purchase full content

    By Jackobear
    I am trying to make a full purchase of the app, but it kept getting stuck at processing. I really would love to get this purchase as my son has enjoyed the limited content. Please help.
  • Scam

    By FunnyFace1985
    It’s only a commercial as soon as I open app you have to pay to do anything.
  • Looks pretty good so far but FIX TYPOS, please!

    By ShiGold
    We just started our free trial, as our three year old loves Eric Carle (and quite frankly, the limited content was way too limited to get a real sense of the app). We are enjoying the bright colors, familiar characters, and variety of games/subjects. Since the book section wasn’t available in our limited content exploration, we went to read one—the one about the frog. The pictures are cute, the information is age appropriate and the animations, though limited, are fun (the sound effects are especially appreciated by my preschooler). BUT! Imagine my surprise to find a typo! Yes it’s a common mistake —“its” incorrectly is spelled “it’s”—but COME ON!!! This is a LEARNING APP and there are grammar errors?!! Not cool. Not appreciated. And definitely NOT what I expect from anything Eric Carle-related (he’s a Big Deal in our household). For the money that we are expected to pay with the auto-renewal, I expect better editing and proofreading. Please look over AND CORRECT the text of the books and other sections of the app as part of the next update!
  • Love The Concept!

    By JR El Bario
    Eric Carle anything is a win-win for me. Great app for ages 3-5 for watching growth of learning. I recommend this app to the world of learners who are interested in developmental learning growth
