Excellent all around

This app has a ton of activities. There are some that are directly learning-centered and others that focus on problem solving, creativity, etc. My 3yo is able to easily navigate the app independently and he absolutely loves it. The subscription is a great value for all that is offered in the app.
I had an issue when my trial version ended and subscription should have started. Crayola has text message customer service that was easily available and I was able to troubleshoot the problem.

Highly recommend.

What happened?

My children love this app. It’s so creative and fun. However, after installing an update it signed us out even though we paid for a year (year is up June 2020). It won’t allow me to restore purchase or anything. Keeps telling me to pay. On top of that I tried to contact someone through the email address on the app and it got returned said it couldn’t be sent to the address. Not sure what’s going on but that’s upsetting after I paid for the year.

This has become increasingly frustrating. The website you provided for support will not allow me to email to it. On top of that, I get a message from the phone number about not opening again until Thursday December 26 even though it is now the 27th. Can anyone help me out with this? I’m really annoyed that I spent money on this app and we can’t even use it and can’t get any help with it. I have always loved crayola and use their products almost daily with my children. This situation has caused me to grow very disappointed with the company.

Fun app with issues

My daughter and I are huge fans of Crayola so of course we subscribed as soon as we saw this app! She totally loves it, especially the coloring and making items in the molds. However there are a couple issues that caused us to eventually cancel our subscription. One is that the app is very temperamental. Some days we just flat-out couldn’t get it to load, other days it would load very slowly, other days it was fine. The other problem we had was that it takes up TONS of room on her iPad! 3GB! This was over 3x bigger than any of her other apps and when you only have 16gb to start with, that’s huge!

We would love to resume our subscription if they can streamline the app with reliable, fast loading times, and have it take up much less space.

While we are glad to hear your daughter had fun playing with the Create & Play App, we are sorry you have encountered some technical difficulties. Your feedback about how the app took up too much space on your device and had ran slow is very helpful, and will be passed along to our Development Team.

Please visit so we can further assist you and get your little one back to playing soon. Best wishes for a colorful future!
