PBS KIDS had just released two new educational apps for kids from their hit TV series DINOSAUR TRAIN and THE ELECTRIC COMPANY! These educational apps encourage math and literacy skills through engaging games so kids can practice skills such as counting, measurement, geometry, telling time and much more!

PBS Kids App

The Electric Company Party Game: Lost on Prankster Planet   (FREE; iPad, Kindle Tablet)

HEY YOU GUYYYYYS! – The Electric Company gang needs help! In The Electric Company Party Game: Lost on Prankster Planet, the newest app from PBS KIDS and Sesame Workshop, children use their math and literacy skills to help Marcus and Jessica escape from Prankster Planet and get back to Earth!  Based on the multi-Emmy award-winning TV show, THE ELECTRIC COMPANY, The Electric Company Party Game: Lost on Prankster Planet app for iPad and Kindle Tablet allows kids to complete wacky challenges, counting races, silly brainstorms, math questions and more.  They will add, draw, discuss, think, act, problem solve, and dance their way back to Earth, all while practicing skills in subjects including geometry, data analysis and graphing, telling time and more!

  • Key features include: Collaborative play, digital board game, hours of unrepeated fast-paced games, physical challenges, group activities, and more!

PBS Kids Apps

DINOSAUR TRAIN Classic in the Jurassic, Jr.!   ($1.99 iPad)

In this app, based on the hit PBS KIDS science-focused series, DINOSAUR TRAIN, kids play through three math-based games focused on sorting, balance and counting to help Gilbert get Troodon Town ready for the big event – the Classic in the Jurassic, Jr games!


  • Bridge Builder: Help build bridges so the dinosaurs can get around Troodon Town!  Drag your finger to measure the distance between two points, then choose the two sets of logs that equal the right length to complete the bridge.
  • Chow Time: The dinosaurs are hungry! Add food to the scale until it’s balanced. When you’ve got it right, watch them chow down!
  • All-Star Sorting: Put the dinosaurs in order by height.  When you’ve got them in the right order, drag them to the house they belong to!

I wish there were fun educational games like these when I was a kid!

    We love these apps and my kids love the Electric Company. In fact, I’m desperately seeking ideas for an Electric Company birthday party, which is how I stumbled onto here. Fellow PBS parents, any ideas would be ever so welcome. has nothing in the ways of The Electric Company merchandise or even printables! — Juliana V.
