Help kids understand their world with the BrainPOP Featured Movie app. Our animated movies engage via narrative, humor, and characters who speak in a voice kids can relate to, encouraging self-directed learning and further exploration of the world around them, and the world within them.

Our free Featured Movie topics rotate daily and tie in to current events, historical milestones and figures, holidays, and more! BrainPOP’s entertaining and informative animations are recognized across the world as a unique and engaging learning resource. Each movie is paired with an interactive quiz so kids can test their new knowledge, and all movies are close captioned, so it’s easy for them to read along.

A very great game!!!

Brain Pop is a very great game. It teaches you stuff in an easy and fun way! It helps me with some of my problems and upcoming problems. One thing I don’t understand is how to make your own account but they have movies for free that are amazing to watch to! This game is very great and I recommend if you kid wants it or if you want it for your kid than you should get it! Tim and Moby always make me laugh and have a great time on the device. This way when your kids are on the device they are not playing some silly game or anything they are actually learning stuff! My dad loves when I do math but sometimes I don’t want to do it in a book because not a lot of books make it fun so sometimes I go on the device, go on BrainPOP and learn that subject from there! 😌

“This app is perfect for kids and it has information on basically everything while spoken in a child friendly way, with new movies coming out every two weeks or so, and BrainPOP has made so many movies since 1999 that you’ll never get bored. I’ve watched brainpop for over a year and the choices of watching are endless. BrainPOP is AWESOME! Get this app!”
Note that what you just read above was my personal thought on this app years ago...until Covid-19 changed everything. Ever since adding the News section BrainPOP has no longer been able to hide their opinions on politics. They are telling us to blindly take the vaccine when in fact no one is allowed to know what’s in it and that the axact corporations that are handing it out are profit run businesses. Why doesn’t anyone see that they only make money if people get sick, not cured. People will buy vaccines and get sick from the vaccines, then buy more vaccines etcetera into an endless cycle.
So to sum it up, brainPOP is Democrat corrupted and is only useful for things other then political stuff. I am not a Republican or a Democrat. For political parties are (like racism and world sports) a tool to divide us...
