New PBS KIDS App Encourages Kids and Parents to Play and Learn Together

Designed for 3- to 5-year-olds, PBS KIDS Measure Up! focuses on building kids’ measurement skills through a combination of games, videos, and activities from popular PBS KIDS’ series.

In PBS KIDS Measure Up!, children join PBS KIDS characters on an adventure through Treetop City, Magma Peak, and Crystal Caves practicing early math concepts focused on length, width, capacity, and weight with their friends from Dinosaur Train, Peg + Cat, and Sid the Science Kid. Children can also collect rewards and unlock digital toys as they play.

The app also connects to a companion app with tools for parents and caregivers to track progress and find ideas for activities away from the screen.

PBS KIDS Measure Up! is available for free on iPad, as well as Android tablets in the Amazon Appstore, and is coming soon to Google Play.
