Preschoolers' Mobile Video Consumption is Controlling App Charts

Recent studies show that preschoolers are inundated with mobile devices.  75% of kids under the age of 5 use mobile devices such as tablets.  This is a 46% increase since 2012.

What are preschoolers consuming on these devices?  Video content.  They are naturally drawn to video content and that's what's driving their usage.

3 of the top-grossing iPhone apps for kids under the age of 5 are video players.  Here's the list.

George Barna says, "In the race to a child's heart, the first one there wins."

If the church is going to win this race, then we must develop mobile video content that can capture the attention of preschoolers and plant God's Word in their hearts.
