BEST gift I ever got my 3 year old!
So I must say at first I was hesitant to spend $50 on a PBS stick. I figured I would give it a chance and anyways have 14 days to return and get my money back if I don't like it. I hooked it up to our living room TV the day we got it and from that moment on my daughter was GLUED to the TV!!! She was like amazed at how much there was to do on this thing. Pros: LOTS of content - I saw page after page of streaming shows from Daniel Tiger, Wild Krats and Dinosaur (daughters favorite :) Sing Alongs - She loves to sing so singing with her favorite show characters was an instantaneous hit Car - It's an actual car... Like a toy car which is pretty cool Cons: Games are too advanced for 2-3 year old; my 5 year old nephew loves them tho (Rail Riders - train game is his favorite). Overall would highly recommend this especially during summer time when they are home. Great at entertaining them as well as giving educational material (which is why I LOVE PBS KIDS :)

Get something better ...
I had very high expectations, since I'm a PBS fan and supporter. As much as I'd like to love this device, it failed in many ways. It's a great idea with no follow through. The device is terribly slow, awkwardly designed, and expensive when compared to other streaming devices. Do yourself (and your children) a favor and purchase a R***u or other streaming device, then add the PBS Kids apps. You'll be glad you did.

Another great product from PBSkids

We got this streaming stick exclusively for use in our playroom. My two year old can work this easily, without frustration and so can my five year old. My son is obsessed with dinosaur train so he loves having episodes, clips and songs at his fingertips. The games are simple enough for both to play and I do not have to worry about them accessing something they shouldn't, which is an issue with our other streaming sticks.

Yes yes yes!!!!!

so happy to have stumbled upon this stream stick! such a lifesaver with my 2 kids, one being 3 the other 5. Before I was always searching for educational fun shows for my littles and now I feel SO MUCH more at ease knowing they are using PBS based shows and activities. Best part is they both love everything it offers so theres no sibling fighting! This is genius and pretty cheap for all the use you can get out of it.

My kids like it

I like that toddlers and bigger kids can do the games and sing-a-longs together, and they can also use it for tv and video-watching. Easy to set up and use. Good to have as an extra device that's totally safe for the kids to use without needing to set up controls to lock them out of paid and grown-up apps and content.

No power switch?

We have truly enjoyed this device with only one problem, it can't be turned off. Why did they forget a off/on switch? To turn it off, I have to physically disconnect the USB/power cords.

Great for kid's room!

We don't have cable - just streaming. So great to be able to put the PBS Kids streaming stick in the kid's playroom and not have to worry about them seeing any adult content. The eye-spy train game was really fun to play with the family!

Just get a Roku

I was excited to see this and eager to try it, especially since it touted "offline content." I thought it would be good for travel. Well, the offline content isn't videos, just some less-than-engaging games and songs. You do need a connection to play the content. It is cute and easy to use, but for $50, just get a Roku which does the same thing and so much more.

Remote is broken after 1 week but this is the 3rd replacemt... the other 2 remotes just never worked. My child liked it but its useless at this point. Money wasted

Average Rating:(1.0)out of 5 stars

Not nearly worth the price

It's painfully slow, taking forever to load videos or live feed. I don't understand why the part you want them to leave alone is shaped like a cool car instead of the remote. The games and activities suck. Don't waste the money, buy a fire stick or roku stick instead. My child is extremely frustrated with the long loading times and it's now more of a headache.
