The Cat In The Hat Comes Back

The Cat In The Hat Comes Back

The Cat in the Hat Comes Back eBook is rather self explanatory. In this eBook, the Cat comes back to visit Sally and her brother and like before, chaos ensues. Sally and her brother are shoveling snow during a boring winter day. Sally tries to talk her brother out of talking to the Cat, reminding […]

The Cat in the Hat

The Cat in the Hat

The Cat in the Hat needs no introduction as it is one of the most popular of Dr. Seuss books. This app is basically an eBook of the first Cat in the Hat book. We will review the second book, “The Cat in the Hat Comes Back” in our next installment. In this book, the Cat […]

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 […]

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 […]

Curious George at the Zoo

Curious George at the Zoo

My kids love Curious George because they know him and his adventures from the TV. 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 […]

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 […]

2BME Firefighter ★★★★

2BME Firefighter ★★★★

Even though the 2BME Firefighter app is likely to be extremely popular with the boys, this app may be interesting to all fire department fans out there. The graphics and other artwork are stunning. The app’s graphics and appearance is in 3D, which is unique in apps made for toddlers. A step in the right […]

Make a Scene: Farmyard Review ★★★★★

Make a Scene: Farmyard Review ★★★★★

From time to time I predict a failure of a toddler app for iPad but it later turns out to be a success with the kids. Make a Scene: Farm Yard is one of these apps. Who would have guessed that dragging a bunch of animals and tractors from one side of the screen to another would be […]

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 […]
