Justin gets tickled with a feather duster

Have fun tickling Justin on the new CBeebies mobile site

Exciting times here at CBeebies - we are taking our first steps towards being mobile!

We have just launched our first mobile site so you can now play CBeebies games on mobile phones and tablets wherever you are! Even better news is that it contains three ace new Justin's House games; 'Fun with Justin', 'Paint with Little Monster' and 'Where's Little Monster?'.

N.B. If you can wrestle your phone back from the kids we strongly recommend you check out Fun with Justin (it's already become a big office favourite) where you get to tickle Justin with a range of household objects and splat him with wet sponges! 

Waiting for Sunday lunch at the pub will never be the same again...

You don’t need to do anything differently to get to the new site, simply visit the CBeebies website via your mobile phone or tablet and you will be redirected to the new mobile view. You can then add the CBeebies icon onto your home screen (like an app) to take you straight there every time.

As hard as we might try, not all of the mobile devices on the market will support this new technology but you should be able to view this on an iPhone, iPad, Samsung Galaxy S2, Samsung Galaxy Tab and most other recent touch screen mobile devices.

As well as being fun, research suggests that because a touch screen device is so tactile and user friendly for little fingers, it can even benefit your child’s development and increase the ability for them to learn whilst they play.

CBeebies now has a mobile site!

Of course, this is just the beginning and a tiny selection of the CBeebies fun activities that we hope to make available on the mobile site eventually.

The CBeebies mobile view is built to give the best possible performance via a mobile phone or tablet. However should you like to access the desktop site at any time, you can go to the footer at the very bottom of the page and click the link ‘desktop site’.

If you’d like to enjoy the best of both, you can easily access the mobile view from the desktop site, by scrolling down to the footer at the bottom of the here and clicking ‘mobile site’.

The technical boffins are beavering away frantically behind the scenes here, so watch this space - the CBeebies mobile experience will be evolving into an even more exciting one soon! 

You can find out more about CBeebies mobile on the FAQ section of the Grown-ups site

Have fun! And say goodbye to your mobile...

    I bought an android tablet specifically for the kids to play on cbeebies. All the flash games worked perfectly going right back to teletubbies. Now all I get is a message saying this game does not work on my device. How do I go back to the old site?

    Hi Andrew, Thank you for your comment, we have now extended the blog to include instructions on how to navigate between the desktop and mobile view of the CBeebies site. I hope that you find this helpful.

    I've recently brought an iPad 3, however it won't let me download the 'on the go' app? I can't find in the app store either? Can anyone help?

    Brilliant, just added you to my IPad Home Page. The children will love it! They were so disappointed that they couldn't access the normal site when we first got the iPad. Hope more and more games get added. Thanks

    EmmaMinkie, I kept checking the app store but it's not like this. You need to google cbeebies and it will take you straight to new site (before this you could never access this site because of the flash player). We it comes up click on the square with the arrow on it, it's in the left hand corner. It says save to home page. This will add it like an app. Hope this helps. Georgie

    I have just purchased a Yarvik Tablet (android 4) for my daughters, and seem unable to access any bbc material, I wondered whether anyone coud offer any advice? There seems to be no iPlayer/Flash on the device.

    Hi! I am thinking of getting an Android Tablet but am concerned about side-effects? Will my Android be OK with Cbeebies please?

    Hello, I have a Samsung galaxy tab 2 tablet, which I notice it says should work fine with cbeebies sites but this is not the case. I can't access any Mobile or on the go things and I have a very sad 4 year old boy. I would appreciate any advice, thanks.

    Hello, This may have been asked before, but will the Cbeebies web site work on a Windows tablet?

    Thank you for any response
