PBS KIDS Launches First Gaming App from Series: Cat in the Hat Builds That!

THE CAT IN THE HAT KNOWS A LOT ABOUT THAT!, Now available in the App StoreGoogle Play andAmazon, the Cat in the Hat Builds That! app features a collection of science adventures for preschoolers to engage with the characters, curriculum, tools and fantastical worlds, even their own customized backyard.

The Cat in the Hat Builds That! app offers the second adaptive learning game from PBS KIDS, with personalization that empowers kids to make choices about their play-based experiences that enhance their learning. Like The Ruff Ruffman Show’s Fish Force, released in the fall of 2017, the adaptive game within the app offers experiences that provide real-time contextual feedback based on what just happened in the game, and shifts challenge sequences to adjust difficulty and match player ability.

I had the chance to try this one out and I highly recommend for pre-schoolers! I love that the app is free and that it is a fun and educational game. It’s really cool that there is a fully customized backyard that grows the more you play. But, I really like that there are 4 Cat in the Hat inspired tools to help with science discoveries such as the magnifying Micromaboodle (say that fast 5 times!) and the Doodlemaboddle sketch pad. 

In addition to the app release, kids and families can now watch new episodes of THE CAT IN THE HAT KNOWS A LOT ABOUT THAT!. The episodes air on PBS stations (check local listings) and the PBS KIDS 24/7 channel and live stream, and will also be available for free on pbskids.org and the PBS KIDS Video App.
