I am so lucky to be able to be at home with our 4-year-old son. After he gets out of his half-day pre-K at 10:45, we have the rest of the day to spend time together building castles, reading books, visiting playgrounds, and baking tasty treats.
Of course, there are times throughout the day when I need my preschooler entertained so that I can get something done.
This is where Noggin comes in.
What is Noggin?
Designed by educators, the subscription-based learning platform helps children ages 2-6 build key literacy, math, and social and emotional skills through interactive games, e-books, and video content featuring their favorite Nick Jr. characters.
Noggin can be viewed on tablets and smartphones making it a great activity for kids at home or on-the-go.
From home to doctor’s office waiting rooms to long car rides, Noggin is the perfect activity to keep little ones entertained, engaged, and learning something new.
What kind of skills does Noggin work on?
- Literacy: letter sounds, vocabulary, spelling, making sentences, etc…

- Science: space, animals, plants, engineering, etc…
- Social and Emotional: such as empathy, self-identity, and building confidence
- Self-care: handwashing, nutrition, yoga, etc…
- …and much more
Why we love Noggin
Instead of focusing on limiting our preschooler’s screen time, I try to direct his screen time to the fun and educational content in the Noggin app.
That way, rather than just zoning out and watching a video, I can rest assured that he is working on an educational activity that is helping him build the foundational skills that he will need to succeed in life.
From PAW Patrol to Blue’s Clues to Bubble Guppies, our son’s favorite characters help keep him engaged and excited to play and learn.
I also love that Noggin adds new content to the platform every week so there is always something fun and new to try.
But you don’t have to take my word for it. Noggin is offering a free trial, so that you and your child can try all their fun and educational activities to see whether you enjoy it as much as we do! Give it a try and let us know what you think!
