What’s It Like? In their own unique Wonderbox account, kids watch videos, draw, take pictures, create, share and message with family and friends, and engage in multi-step challenges. Curated videos and specially designed creative challenges are organized by theme (e.g., music, science, world, sports). Challenges like designing a tree house include background information, prompts, and a general framework to get started. Kids can also just explore and create freely. Play earns coins, which kids use to “buy” stickers and drawing tools. Share and message with friends and family. Many challenges could easily be linked to a wide variety of Common Core State Standards.

Rating: 5/5

Price: Free

Grades: 2-8

Pros: Original, interactive challenges show kids the joy of learning.

Cons: Coin rewards and marketplace for buying stickers and drawing tools seem out of place.

Bottom line: There’s plenty of material to inspire kids to embark on learning adventures that get them to explore, create, and share safely on the screen and off.
