It’s a subscription video on demand platform of educational videos for children ages 1-11. On Highbrow we have videos covering everything you can imagine: arts & crafts, science experiments, cooking, phonics, ballet, 23+ foreign languages, and much more beyond.

Highbrow is ad-free and safe, and we have been picked by Apple as ‘App of the Day’ within 5 months of launch in both the US and UK stores.


Highbrow is educational, and Highbrow is personalised.

Our aim is that every child should have their own unique Highbrow experience, because every child is unique – whether they like trains or dragons, football or piano, or perhaps a mix of all four! Highbrow has a library of over 5000+ video titles that are 100% educational. Not marketing ‘educational’ but truly educational. Our internal machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms dive into our deep library of content and serve up the best video recommendation for your child based on their age and interest – the more they use Highbrow, the more personalised it becomes. This way, if Highbrow learns that your child loves dinosaurs, they most likely will learn phonics, letters, numbers with dinosaurs, helping them to understand and retain every minute.


We have worked closely with educators and experts to figure out what makes a video educational. We have then codified this in our Healthy Content Framework that we used to analyse every video before it is approved for the platform. We have also released a paper about it which you can find here:

Highbrow is now being used in hundreds of schools and learning institutions around the world.


They are our pride and joy! Our creators are small/medium-enterprises, teachers, parents, and Grammy & Emmy award winners. We have hundreds of creators spread across 18 different countries. Each one of them has a true passion for education and their quality is second to none!

Love that I can trust it.

I love that I don’t have to worry about what content is on here. Everything has been great. Only drawback is that it seem a bit “babyish” for my 6 year old. He isn’t yet a reader but is easily bored with the content.

Overall great app! Kids love it

The app was impressively easy to navigate and has quality content! It keeps my younger, information-seeking nieces and nephews completely engaged. The videos are both educational and entertaining and I’m glad they’ve been screened before hand and even broken down into age groups. I’ve been trying to get the rest of my family to download the app for their kids! Would definitely recommend

Help requested

This rating is a placeholder: if I get a reply from the devs and can access the content, I’ll give it an honest review. If not, it stays a 1.

Looks like a fun app for my child, but I can’t access the free trial. It says, “Grown-ups only! To access, please enter.” Below that is a row of numbers that remains partially obscured (the bottoms of the numbers are clipped). I can select 3 numbers, and then the field is erased. Presumably, the intent was to show a simple math problem and then have the adult input the 3-digit answer. I see no math problem and only part of the numbers below. I’m using an 8+ with iOS v.11.3. I tried the obvious stuff like restarting the app and attempting to change the orientation to portrait. Advice is needed, devs.

So sorry you are having issues accessing the free trial - please could you contact us at and we will get this sorted out for you.
