My 9 year old and 5 year old kids love all of the Ansel and Clair apps- they keep playing them over and over- they have completed each app but they continue to play anyway- the developers have managed to make learning really fun! SpecialAppsSpecialKids
Ansel and Clair: JurassicDinosaurs and Ansel and Clair: Triassic Dinosaurs two Top Picks… My advice is to consider purchasing the entire trilogy. Together, they guarantee your child hours and hours of educational enjoyment, learning about the giants that once roamed the Earth. They are definite Top Picks.” – Fun Educational Apps
This is a wonderful interactive educational app that teaches kids about the American Revolution in a fun way. I really liked the format of this educational app. The educational material was presented in a very interesting manner with the historical characters interacting with Ansel and Clair. Also, getting kids actively involved by taking pictures of [...] Read more
Ansel & Clair: Paul Revere’s Ride is a splendid educational app for iPad 2 and beyond that does a thorough job of explaining the American Revolution and the details of Paul Revere’s ride. There is so much to say about all the details included within this Ansel & Clair app that reviewing it is a [...] Read more
Love, love love everything Ansel & Clair! We have had the pleasure of reviewing all of the apps and I, as mom, am super impressed by them. The amount of information that Graham absorbs from these apps is amazing. Graham has been asking us all sorts of great questions about history thanks to this game. $4.99 [...] Read more
One of the kids’ favorite apps is Ansel & Clair’s Adventures in Africa. Roo and Jasper reviewed it back in summer 2011 and they still enjoy playing it, which in terms of apps is pretty darned impressive. In terms of educational apps, it’s nearly unheard of!…At $4.99, Ansel & Clair: Paul Revere’s Ride is a great investment in [...] Read more

The whole game is so well thought-out and researched, you could tell within the first minute of use! The boys have talked a great deal about Paul Revere this week. My kids are excited about a period in history they now understand and thoroughly enjoy. What more could a mom, homeschool or otherwise, ask for [...] Read more
5 Stars – Ansel & Clair: Paul Revere’s Ride is that rarity in the iTunes store – an app that works equally well for grades K-5. My children’s school recently purchased two iPad carts and one of the challenges administrators have had is making sure there are apps on the iPads that are age appropriate [...] Read more
If there is a problem, it’s that kids will expect more lessons ‘taught’ this way, and be disappointed that there are only three such award-winning apps so far. Ultimately, the Ansel and Clair apps could certainly be used to demonstrate why schools need iPads. http://www.iphonelife.com/blog/2458/take-ride-through-history-ansel-clair-paul-reveres-ride
Highly recommend Ansel and Clair’s Ride with Paul Revere. It is an excellent example of how a well-crafted app can enrich a child’s knowledge of the world, and do it in an entertaining way. Think about it: this app could spark your child’s lifelong love of history, because it makes the subject so real. [...] Read more
From Cognitive Kid, creator of immersive education apps. A new way to learn American history. Make a map of the 13 colonies, tossing tea into the Boston Harbor, and joining in on Paul Revere’s ride.
Really great way of learning History…Ansel and Clair not only teach about the founding of our nation; but do it in an engaging way.There is so much interactive content in this app that kids will have a hard time getting bored with it. It features original maps, artwork, music, puzzles, and even a travel log [...] Read more
What I love about the award-winning (and can we say many many awards) Ansel & Clair series, is that there is an awesome, well thought-out meld between fantasy (Ansel is from space and Clair who’s always by his side, is his trusty, fact-knowing robot) and reality (real places, people, animals, cultures and more). Clearly Cognitive Kid [...] Read more
5 Stars! What we love…Brings history to life and immerses the student, comprehension questions help retain what is learned. It is an animated, immersive, interactive, history lesson and an innovative and engaging way to make history come alive – highly recommended.
Paul Revere’s Ride is another fabulous Ansel & Clair adventure. Paul Revere’s Ride is an excellent method for teaching American History to young kids. It presents the American Revolutionary War in a way that kids are more likely to remember what they have learned.
Ansel & Clair: Paul Revere’s Ride provides hours of educational content for children that is both deeply memorable, historically accurate, and engaging. This incredibly full app uses a wide range of interactive, multi-sensory experiences to provide elementary-age children with an exciting, living experience of early American history.
**** If you’re looking for a fun and educational app that can entertain kids of many ages, any of the Ansel & Clair apps are worth looking into, and Paul Revere’s Ride is a good place to start… The reason the app works on so many levels is that it incorporates so many different learning [...] Read more
Ansel and Clair: Adventures in Africa.. was amazingly great. A gem in the educational world of apps for the iPad. First up for Ansel and Clair to explore is the Cretaceous Period, and to say the app is a success would be to put it mildly. This is also great for classroom use too! Another [...] Read more
Ansel and Clair: Cretaceous Dinosaurs is a great educational introduction into the world of dinosaurs.
Ansel and Clair: Cretaceous Dinosaurs is an app with a tremendous amount of information about dinosaurs. Travel back in time with the Ansel and Clair to learn about dinosaurs, their history, features and the world during the Cretaceous period. Ansel and Clair play the role of the teacher supported with pictures and some interactivity. Perfect [...] Read more
Incredibly dynamic and involving, especially with the excellent, video game like appearance and interaction. There is much to explore and learn. Kids love dinosaurs, so they will love this app.
Loaded with educational content ranging from paleontology to geology to zoology. The app has a stellar interface and ultimately looks great.
INCREDIBLE app that explores and teaches the wonders of Africa via two endearing extraterrestrial characters. This FIVE STAR educational app will keep your kids engaged for hours!…The students gave the app an initial road-test last week and I haven’t been able to get them off since!
Anything that is educational is always a plus in my book and the amount of depth that this app goes into is a perfect addition to our homeschooling needs, and my daughter will definitely be using it all the time. She has even asked if she can take it to Montana in the car when [...] Read more
‘Ansel & Clair’s Adventure in Africa’ is a mind-blowing app. A full-featured animated story of characters from outer space that come to Earth to explore and learn. And you go along learning as well. A truly rich application with endless content to learn from.
What really held our testers interest was the interactivity offered by the app. They enjoyed dragging the camera over the screen to take pictures of animals. Further special effects such as a sand storm blowing across the screen that needs to be wiped away drew cries of delight. Extra puzzles that involved tilting the iPad [...] Read more
Ansel and Clair’s Adventures in Africa by Cognitive Kid, Inc (4.99) is packed with so much quality, interactive content. While checking it over, I couldn’t find any particular areas that the developers cut corners on. Everything from the voice overs to the story to the interactive nature and fact-filled script is top notch.
This game is one of the best, if not the best learning application for kids you will find on the iPad. Your kids will love playing this edutainment app. This is a hidden pearl in the iTunes store.
This is an app highly recommended for both grade school classrooms as well as home use, and I suspect older kids and adults will sneak off and to play this game themselves there is so much to offer at any age group. This app’s approach to learning is fantastic, creative, and very immersive. I am [...] Read more
If you have an iPad and kids, you are going to want to know about this cool new app. If you don’t, seriously, consider getting a refurb, it’s worth every penny and then some.

Ansel & Clair’s Adventure’s in Africa is a rich, layered educational app. There is so much content and meat on this one that it’s hard to know where to begin. The graphics in Ansel & Clair’s Adventures are of extremely high quality. Everything looks and runs like a dream.
This is an app that truly utilizes all the things great about the iPad…it’s educational, fun, engaging, and magical. This is truly one of the most amazing apps for kids and education I’ve come across. It has so many features that one simply can not do it justice in a review. It’s easily worth the [...] Read more
Great educational app that does keep a child’s attention. Being the little sponges they are, the information is presented in such a way that they seem to immerse themselves into the app and come away remembering a lot of what they hear and see. Overall, an excellent and well developed app that children of different [...] Read more

Ansel and Clair’s Adventures in Africa is a new app by Cognitive Kids that will leave even the parents wanting to play along. No kidding. I am just as engrossed in this new iPad app as Graham.

This is truly one of the most amazing apps for kids and education I’ve come across. It has so many features that one simply can not do it justice in a review. It’s easily worth the price, and I honestly hope we see the developers continue the other continents, and continue to press the boundaries [...] Read more
I had to police her (daughter’s) time on this app, as she didn’t want to put it down. But it still has me secretly hoping that Ansel and Clair will have future missions to explore the other continents and, therefore, putting the entire world at her fingertips.
