The DIY app is free to download and offers access to 5000+ DIY projects and videos across 150+ skills to all free users. Additionally, parents can opt for a DIY Plus subscription that allows kids to join 100+ live interactive workshops every month, share their creativity by posting their content onto their profiles, interact with 1000s of kids from across 170+ countries, participate in contests, and win prizes!
The DIY Plus plan offers a 7-Day FREE Trial for each family (you can add upto 4 kids in a plan) after which it costs $7.99/month or $79.99/year. You can cancel at any point during your trial and we’ll send you a reminder 48 hours before it ends.
DIY’s content, incentives, and community are designed to introduce kids to engaging projects and show them how to explore their new skills in the real world. The initial learning happens through how-to videos, hands-on projects, and live interactive workshops.
After each video or course, kids encounter challenges and project ideas that coax them to take the concepts they watched off-screen. When they explore these activities at home, they earn points, badges, and gems to make “purchases” at the DIY store. They can also share their discoveries and creations with kids around the world. With DIYers from over 170 countries, this platform offers a one-of-a-kind chance for kids to collaborate and learn alongside a global community. 💯🌟
DIY is ideal for kids between the ages of 7 and 13 years. Considering that these are some of the most important formative years of development, we're trying to touch as many childhoods as we possibly can with positive content and hands-on learning.
We aim to encourage skill-building by fostering a healthy competitive spirit and build a community of proactive, self-confident, eager-to-learn, and — above all — kind children. We hope that these kids will go on to become adults that have the same qualities.
While the trial is absolutely free, we ask for your credit card info upfront to comply with a U.S. law called the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)s which is a requirement for companies like ours who provide services for kids 13 and under. Your card will only be charged if you continue past the free trial period.
Moreover, a credit card verifies your identity and serves as a safety check to make sure that an adult is approving every kid's enrollment. This makes sure that the online safety of your kid (and every other kid on DIY) is maintained and their privacy, protected.
