  • Great Customer Support

    By _ellochka
    I was having an issue with getting daily activities that weren’t developmentally appropriate for my daughter, and I received a thorough and thoughtful response to my customer support email within hours. The activities (once corrected for my daughter’s age and abilities) are great and include stuff I might never have thought of, but she loves. Highly recommend, totally worth purchasing.
  • Very repetitive

    By Brittlovesmusic1
    Way too expensive to recommend you “have your baby look in a mirror” every week. Not very inventive activities, and they are so repetetive. Save your dough and use Pinterest or buy a book.
  • Great resource for new moms

    By Diana Chindi
    When I am at lost for activities for my five month old, playfully is where I can get easy,simple, activities for my baby!
  • Great App for Newborns!

    By Jns710
    I really like this app because it gives me some great ideas on how to interact with my newborn. Sometimes it’s hard to communicate with a newborn since they don’t communicate back, but this app provided some great activities to help! Looking forward to using the app as our baby continues to grow!
  • Easy to use, great content

    By MC72010
    I’ve tried a few other baby play/milestone apps. Most of them are hard to use or don’t explain the play/milestones clearly. This app is very easy to use and has really clear content. I just did the free trial and bought the three-month subscription to try it out.
  • Love it!

    By aajc513
    This app is amazing! It gives you developmentally appropriate activities to do with your child and also tells you what milestones they should be reaching. Love it!
  • Eh, I think it could be better

    By J__xyz__123:/
    I was hoping for an app that would be stimulating for an infant, both for mental and physical development. Some of these activities are not age appropriate, or they’re common sense activities like tummy time or making funny sounds for baby. I do like that there’s a selection of daily activities, but a lot of them have to wait until babies are at least 6 months or older. The daily activities definitely does NOT justify a monthly subscription or a $40 lifetime cost. It’s a waste of money, in my opinion.
  • Forces you to pay to access

    By Laila long legs
    This app had so much potential until it forces you to upgrade and will not allow even basic access until you pay. Seriously disappointed.
  • Great for multiple users!

    By NicoleCW
    Best baby activity app for both parents / multiple caregivers to use. I’ve tried other apps, but they don’t let you link accounts. This app is also beautifully designed and I love that you can store a photo with each milestone. Only wish you could write in your own custom milestones or search for milestones by keyword (our son just laughed for the first time, but I couldn’t find that milestone).
  • Great for Grandparents too

    By FalconCove
    As a grandma of two (and former Special Ed teacher and Reading Specialist), I have found Playfully to be so helpful for new parents to make sure they find fun ways to use playtime for learning. I love that the milestones are divided into the four developmental domain areas and guide parents in how to encourage skills in all areas. Even after raising my own kids and working with children for 30 years, I still seem to be frequently reminded of activities on the app that I hadn’t thought of. I recommend this to all young parents (and grandparents too).
