The boxart for a pack of games for the service.

Status: Partially Found

PBS Kids PLAY! was an interactive gaming site that you could also download that taught young kids from the ages 3 to 6 reading, math, social studies, science, and more. The site was taken down June 30, 2015, due to it having "obsolete technologies". meaning it used Adobe Flash Player. Not much is known about it, considering it has barely any evidence of its existence.[1] The game featured many characters from PBS Kids' properties at the time, including Curious George, Super Why!, Little Pim, Thomas the Tank Engine, Dinosaur Train, Bob the Builder, Franny's Feet, Berenstain Bears, and more.


A download link can be found, but it won't connect, as it tries to connect to the link it gets its info from, but the link is dead.[2]

A now defunct subreddit for the site can be found, which discussed the service.[3] However, it was banned due to lack of moderation. Many videos of the service remain, but the actual site is down, and will probably not surface anytime soon.

The Super Why games were repackaged into an individual release known as Super Why: Power to Read, which works offline.
