Kids Vehicles: Construction

Kids Vehicles: Construction

I am always looking for great ways to keep my son occupied. Any good quality iPad app with cars, planes, and trains will do, which is why I was happy to find the “Kid Vehicles: Construction app”. This app is small, showing 10 high detailed construction vehicles from a bird’s eye view. You can activate each […]

Toca House

Toca House

TOCA BOCA has been known to make super quality apps for toddlers, which often behave more like toys rather than a game with a win/lose situation. In this case, the fellows at TOCA BOCA took a rather grayish subject, House Chores, and made it into a fun and vividly colorful game. In the game, you […]

Dr. Seuss ABC

Dr. Seuss ABC

Dr. Seuss’s ABC is a book I am well acquainted with and this app is a great idea as it introduces children (and parents!) to an interactive version of Dr. Suess’s ABC. Dr. Suess is a house hold name, sometimes even when you do not have kids. However, when you have kids, Dr. Suess is […]

Pocket Pond

Pocket Pond

If you are not new to the iPad / iPhone arena, you’ve probably ran into this lovely, small app called pocket pond.  The principal is very simple, but professionally executed; your tablet becomes a small pond with realistic water rippling and fish swimming around. For a grownup, there is not much to do there but for kids (especially toddlers), it is […]

Curious George at the Zoo

Curious George at the Zoo

They actually visited the only Curious George shop last week, (right next to the Harvard University) and they were very excited to see all the books, toys and puzzles .under one roof.  The graphics in the Curious George at the […]

Planes, Trucks, Trains, and Boats

Planes, Trucks, Trains, and Boats

It seems like my young boy has an unlimited capacity for enjoying transportation vehicles, whether they are going on the road, sea, or air. Actually, when he was 1 year old, I remember the best way to cheer him up was to show him trucks, buses, and an occasional plane from the living room window. […]

Playground 1 HD Review

Playground 1 HD Review

A toddler app with multiple sub-games is usually not a good idea. This is because it requires a main menu with back buttons in all of the sub-games. These relatively sophisticated usability solutions makes it hard for kids under the age of 3 – 3.5 to operate such an iPhone/iPad app, which is not something […]

Where’s Puppy’s Nose?

Where’s Puppy’s Nose?

The Laugh and Learn Where’s Puppy’s Nose app is very basic and great for ages 1.5 and above. The Laugh and Learn Where’s Puppy’s Nose app is one of fisher price’s free apps and uses its featured character from the real world Laugh and Learn series for toddlers. The animation is simple but entirely appropriate […]

Animal Touch Worlds

Animal Touch Worlds

The Animal Touch Worlds app is very basic, which makes it usable for toddlers as young as 1.5 years old. This app is more or less a “Fisher Price game” on an iPad/iPhone, with a scene where you can tap an element and experience a short animation with sound. The colors are especially bright and the scenes […]

Toddler Robot ABC (Android)

Toddler Robot ABC (Android)

I can always appreciate an app made with a sense of humor. The Toddler Robot ABC app is a simple app with basically one screen, where a toddler can tap to experience cause and effect. Cause and affect is an important concept for a child to learn and what better way to do it than […]
