What's New

We hope you're enjoying making music and learning math with Peg + Cat! This version includes iOS 11 optimization.

App Description

Tune up your ukulele and get ready to rock, sing aloud, and dance with Peg and Cat! In this totally awesome app from PBS KIDS, children ages 3 to 6 practice math skills by learning and creating songs, dances, and more.

Based on the hit PBS KIDS series, PEG + CAT Big Gig is a musical app that invites you to pick an instrument and play songs with Peg, Cat and their friends in different worlds featured in the show – the farm, Pirate Island, the Magic Forest, and even the Purple Planet!

In the Big Gig, while playing simple melodies from PEG + CAT, practice preschool math skills including identifying numbers, counting up and down by ones and twos, adding ones, and extending patterns. After you play a song, you’re treated to a show – characters rocking out just for you!

In the Cat Dance game, make your own dance routines for Cat, and help him achieve his dream of being a dancing star! Choose from different songs, costumes, and backdrops – from Dino Valley to Radio City Music Hall. Then, customize your dance routine with up to ten moves, while getting practice with ordinal numbers (e.g. First, Second, Third…). Watch Cat shake his tail while you add special effects, like fireworks, disco lights and stage decorations!

In the Sound Check activity, explore and make music on your own! You’ll find a chorus of chickens ready to cheep, musical instruments, song loops, and characters who will sing and shout on your cue. You can even record your little ditty and play it back. The music you make is up to you!

Peg + Cat Big Gig is based on the Emmy Award-winning PBS KIDS series PEG + CAT, created by Jennifer Oxley and Billy Aronson and produced by The Fred Rogers Company. Made for kids ages 3-6, the app is designed to extend the series' preschool mathematics curriculum.

Peg + Cat Big Gig is part of PBS KIDS' ongoing commitment to helping kids build the skills they need to succeed in school and life. PBS KIDS, the number one educational media brand for kids, offers all children the opportunity to explore new ideas and new worlds through television and digital media, as well as community-based programs.
