I love this app!

As a stay at home mom of a 5 month old and a 2 1/2 year old, this app helps add fun and learning into our days. It also makes me feel like I am able to bond with each of my girls individually where they are at developmentally. I love that you can mark your favorite activities or tell the app when an activity is either too easy or to difficult for your child. If you mark an activity as being too easy it will take it out of the rotation. If you mark an activity as too difficult it will add it back into the rotation in 3 weeks.

As a sleep deprived, busy mom who also wants to engage with her children, this app does all the thinking for me. When we have some free time all I have to do is go to today’s program and there is a list of fun, amazing ways to use that time while also fostering growth and development. I also love how it breaks down each activity into categories of Gross Motor, Fine Motor, Cognitive, Speech, Self Care and Social/Emotional activities.

Keep up the great work BabySparks!

Entertaining and helpful!

BabySparks is great! No new parent needs to pressure themselves too much because most of these activities simulate normal day-to-day interaction and play that most great parents do with their baby. However, I’m one of those people who will get stuck in a rut and end up doing the same 5 activities with baby over and over every day. This app provides a wide range of activities to vary your playtime. I love that the activity descriptions are clear, the link to the various developmental milestones is described right there in the activity and every activity has an accompanying video.

The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because of a very slight misstep in the UI. It is mildly annoying that when you look at an activity it stops you on your way back to the main list to ask how the activity was. I like to look at the daily activities first thing in the morning and get an idea of what we’re going to try that day and again would be nice not to have to click extra times to get back to the main list. It’s an unnecessary step. It’s a small thing but over time feels cumbersome. Slightly more thought on how much button pushing is required in this app would make it a 5-star treat for every new parent!

Needs more settings and customization

The short animations when you complete/rate an activity and when you are a certain percentage towards being done with activities for the day are all very annoying and unskippable. You are unable to exit out of the activity while the animation is happening. The same type of thing happens when you want to see what an activity is and just want to watch the video before deciding to do it. After clicking on the activity and then go to exit out, a pop up automatically shows up for you to rate the difficulty of the activity. These hindrances would be all fine and well if there was a setting to turn them off BUT there is absolutely no settings menu or customizable options. A simple “turn off animations” and “turn off reminders to rate activities” would be a huge help!

Otherwise, the activities are usually day to day type of things that are easy to add to normal play. I like to view the app at the beginning of the day and see how I can work in the activities during our daily routine. It gets a little repetitive sometimes but that’s fixed by having quite a few activities available to pick and choose.

Hey there! Thank you so much for your feedback. We truly appreciate it and our team will take it into account for future app updates. In the meantime, we recommend you close the difficulty survey whenever you are checking the daily program at the beginning of the day. Please remember if you want further assistance on the activities your baby is getting on the daily routine, you can always reach us at Have a wonderful day!
