Price- First habitat, Laughter Lake is free. Additional habitats are available at an introductory price of $4.95 per habitat. No subscription fees ever.

Kabongo presents three fun-filled learning habitats: Laughter Lake, Galaxy Garden, and Twister Top. Here children can play challenging learning games, solve mini-missions, and discover lots of other hidden surprises. Along the way, children will meet a host of friendly characters who are always there to help and share a laugh. Each of GoGo Kabongo's learning games! Addresses a specific cognitive skill and adapts to the child's level, so they are never too easy or too hard, inspiring self-confidence and independent play. Critical thinking skills children learn and practice with GoGo Kabongo:

• Focus and attention

• Letter and pattern recognition

• planning

• Listening comprehension

• Phonics and phonetic awareness

As they play and learn, kids are rewarded with cool online collectables. For instance, kids earn interactive stickers, which they can use to create their very own comic book scenes, or skate park ramps to build and ride in a custom skate park.

Overall GoGo Kabonga is a colorful, fun website where children can easily learn. My 7 year old enjoyed playing there thanks to a free subscription from GoGo Kabonga and TOS. (We received no other compensation. This review is based on my opinion of the site).
