    We’ve had a subscription to MarcoPolo World School for over a year now and still love it. Our son had just turned three when we first started with MarcoPolo and he still uses the app regularly. They add new content frequently and I am guessing that it will keep his interest for a number of years going forward. The app has short science video-lessons on a variety of topics such as ecosystems (oceans, forests, the Arctic, etc.), weather, human body, dinosaurs and vehicles. The videos are entertaining for adults as well and help me to keep up with all the information my son is absorbing. The games are also absorbing and cover basic math, reading and writing skills. Some of my favorite lessons are the music videos (currently there are three in the ocean module). The songs are catchy and clever. My son always sings the clean-up song when he needs to pick up his toys. There is also the artroom with coloring and drawing sections as well as videos on a variety of creative projects. At first, I felt that the supplies for them were too many and too specific (like googly eyes and glitter glue). But our son has spent a lot of times crafting the projects and now is using the supplies and techniques he learned from the app to make up his own projects. So they turned out worth the investment. If you have a young child, they will definitely need a lot of adult assistance with these projects though. One time when their content came a day later than advertised, my son had been checking for new lessons all day. Because of his disappointment I decided to provide that feedback to MarcoPolo World School. I was impressed with the level of customer service when someone got back to me within the hour well after business hours (especially for London where they are based) and clarified the nature of the delay. (The videos were up early next morning.) If you want to see the level of quality of the app and don’t want to spend money, check out MarcoPolo Ocean or Arctic, they are free and are available in a lot of different languages.

    Why don’t you make a full version without the supscription? It would also be useful to use it for 6th graders like me.
  • Sorry so bore and compact

    My 3 year old loves this app! He especially loves the human body lessons and the dinosaurs. We had the subscription for about more than a year and all of sudden it started crashing every time he wants to play. I already tried reinstalling it but it didn’t work. I’m thinking about just canceling the subscription which is really unfortunate since my son loves this game.
  • Loaded slowly pain to uninstall on iPad

    It took several minutes to load on my pre schoolers iPad mini. When I went to cancel it kept redirecting to iTunes page and not allowing free trial subscription cancellation...30 min and I’m still trying to cancel
  • My 4yo LOVES it

    By E.hogan14
    We are homeschooling and my daughter loves this app. We purchased the year long subscription because the games really help her with sight words, phonics, and handwriting. We have had it since October I believe and she has gone from not recognizing half of the alphabet to reading and spelling the starter sight words! She loves the craft videos and the ocean chapters especially! Totally worth every penny.
