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 […]

LEGO® DUPLO® ZOO

LEGO® DUPLO® ZOO

Lego is a favorite for all children and their branching out into games has only increased Lego’s popularity. Lego has been known to publish free android and iPad apps to promote their games, which is totally fine by us as we always love freebies, especially for our kids. The Lego Duplo app has a rich storyline […]

Talking Nado Review (Android) ★★★★

Talking Nado Review (Android) ★★★★

Talking character apps such as “Ben the dog” and “Tom the cat” are a big hit with toddlers. The main reason is they are simple, funny-looking characters you can interact with and the plot (if any) is very simple. Nado, being a famous Korean TV character, received an app of his own recently. The app […]

Toca Train Review ★★★★★

Toca Train Review ★★★★★

One of my boy’s favorite iPad apps lately has been Toca Train by Toca Boca. How can I tell? Well, our kids has limited access to the digital gadgets at our home. Once a day, we let them use the iPad for roughly 20 minutes. During that session, the kids can choose whatever app the […]

Toy Story Review ★★★★

Toy Story Review ★★★★

Seeing the first Toy Story movie is not easy on the old ticker. There are scenes that would make a grownup shriek with fear. For example, take notice on all the unfortunate toys gathering in Sid’s house when Woody and Buzz get locked over there! Brrr. That being said, I was not quite sure if […]

Dr. Seuss Band Review ★★

Dr. Seuss Band Review ★★

After reviewing Green Eggs and Ham, the kids were eager to try another toddler app from the colorful world of Dr. Seuss. As a matter of fact, I was happy to do so since I used to enjoy the books way back when I was a kid (my wife says that I’m still one). Making a […]

Elmo’s Monster Maker Review ★★★★★

Elmo’s Monster Maker Review ★★★★★

Sesame Street characters have recently become a favorite theme for my kids. That is, ever since we visited our friends in Long Island, who introduced the kids to a Sesame Street driving toy. Even though I probably heard Elmo say, “this way” and “the other way” hundreds of times of times (every time one of the kids turned the small wheel of the […]

Meet the Fraggles is an e-book based on the classic Jim Henson Company’s TV series Fraggle Rock. The book introduces three types of creatures: Doozers, Fraggles, and Gorgs. Each interact with humans in different ways. Sometimes being too messy, other times putting things in unheard of order. The e-book is based on the original art […]

Creativity Zoo for Kids Review ★★★★

Creativity Zoo for Kids Review ★★★★

Growing up in the 80’s, we too had a couple of mix & match books laying around the house. Whenever I got bored, I used to flip the pages and match frog legs to a fireman or a pilot, a thing that always made me smile. Nowadays, everything is done digitally and Creativity Zoo for […]

Puppet Show Review ★★

Puppet Show Review ★★

Looking at the Puppet Show app for the first time made me think it was one of the Sesame Street lineup. A few moments later, I realized the Sesame Street people don’t have a patent on puppets and this is a private project whose name had the same ring as the Muppet show. The app […]
