ABCya Games Review

What is ABCya?

ABCya is a fun educational website for children in pre-K through to 6th grade. The site is categorized by age group and there are math, reading, word, skill, seasonal, and strategy games available for each grade level. This free website for kids has a lot of educational value, and kids will enjoy it so much that they might not even realize they are learning.

ABCya is the leader in educational games for children. All educational games are free and are modelled on primary-grade lessons and enhanced to provide an interactive way for children to learn.

ABCya has created over 400 educational computer games and apps for students in reception to year 7. In addition to a focus on maths and English, ABCya also covers topics such as science and holiday trivia and provides fun activities to help children improve their typing skills and even create animations. 

Versatile is one word to describe the ABCya learning games included in this app. They work across every mainstream device, cover multiple educational topics, and deliver various game styles to test and develop children's learning. Excellent would be another word. Games are also available on mobile devices with a subscription. 

Is the ABCya app free?

ABCya is available for free to download on iOS and Android devices. The ABCya Games mobile app is free from the Apple App Store, Google Play Store and Amazon app stores.

This is a subscription service with a generous twist: the content is freely accessible if you access it over the web on a desktop machine, albeit advertisements frame it. This gives you, or rather your child, time to use and experience the games so that you can make the right choice about taking out the full subscription.

What grades does ABCya cover?

ABCya offers comprehensive coverage of pre-K through 6th grade curriculum. ABCYa! is available as a web app and mobile app with an array of educational games and activities for pre-k to 6th grade students.

Is ABCya safe?

Yes, ABCya is safe to use as there is no assessment, progress tracking, or learning support. 

How much does ABCya subscription cost?

A subscription costs $9.99 per month or $69.99 per year for access to the Premium Family plan. A subscription costs $299.99 per year for access to Premium Classroom plan. 

Can ABCya be used as curriculum?

ABCya is also an online curriculum for PreK-12 that provides standards-aligned content in math, language arts, science, and social studies.

The Common Core Curriculum structure should not put off parents or educators whose children do not follow this curriculum, as ABCya covers fundamental PreK-6th grade skills that are universally appropriate.  For example, though each numeracy and literacy game is aligned with the US Common Core Curriculum, these games are nevertheless easily understandable and straightforward to translate into the objectives of other curricula.

Does ABCya have ads?

Yes, ABCya has ads. To get an advertisement-free experience and use the content on a mobile device, download the free app and take out a subscription. This brings you a number of other quality of life benefits, such as storing more games as favourites rather than having to seek them out among the masses and allowing an ad-free experience on your desktop.

Many apps offer a learning experience based around mini-games, but few offer such a broad array of content that can be accessed across a plethora of devices. After reading this review, your first action should be to check out the content for yourself on a desktop PC - you will see for yourself what a well-produced service ABCya provides and how useful it would be to extend this to your mobile devices.

What we liked about ABCya?

Don't be fooled by the name; ABCya is not limited to alphabet games. It is a popular game websites for kids. It contains an absolute trove of high-quality learning games across many different topics and styles. Whatever device you own, you can almost certainly find a way to play them on that device and help your child to learn and improve.

As a whole, the content is categorised in several different ways and it is easy to browse and search for a specific type, challenge, or topic to practise. The app is structured around the U.S. Common Core Curriculum and so the games can be chosen by grade level and then by a general category such as letters, numbers, strategy, skill, or holiday.

The ‘Holiday” section includes games that celebrate Christmas and New Years, as well as many popular US holidays such as Thanksgiving and Independence Day. ‘Skill’ games reinforce lessons such as typing and pattern recognition, while ‘Strategy’ games are meant to encourage pure fun and require quick reactions and a good sense of timing.

Each activity is made to a high standard, and new ones are continually added to the game library. They tend to be based around a single gameplay mechanism, are easy to learn, and concentrate on a narrow topic, so they can target the skills each child needs to cover. The numeracy and literacy games, in particular, are well-focused and educationally relevant while also more fun for children than textbook exercises and worksheets.

Although most of the titles in ABCya focus on traditional math and literacy games, a few are what teachers would describe as manipulatives. “Base Ten Blocks,” for example, does not include gameplay rules but is an interactive activity that encourages students to explore number patterns. These can be very useful for explaining mathematical concepts to children, as they provide a virtual form of the physical number blocks often used in the classroom. Since the virtual manipulatives have a different use from the other activities included on ABCya, it would have been nice to sort and search for manipulatives as a distinct category. As it stands, these activities are mixed in with the other content.

The graphics and sound are all very well done: everything is clear and colourful, music accompanies many games, and clear sound effects enhance the experience. The objectives of many of the games are explained by text, meaning that a few children could need some adult help to understand what they need to do. But, in most cases, the game is self-explanatory and can be understood by just having a go.


ABCya! has been my go-to site for years now. It is the perfect resource for parents and teachers and is ideal for kids of all ages. ABCya! can be used for homeschooling and offers daily free games and subscription options. This kids' website is a great way to entice your kids to play and learn simultaneously!
