1. Interactive Baby Sound (by Punflay):
Such a fun kids app!!! Great for the kids that are learning to associate images with sounds. There are even 9 different funny faces that laugh and gets all the kids laughing (a personal favorite)
2. ABC Numbers (by Punflay):
Lots of interactive things to do with this app. You can choose letters or numbers: for the letters, spin the wheel and the voice will sound out the letter and say the word that goes with the picture. Touch the picture to see it move! Pull the cord and the start will sing the alaphabet. For the older kids learning how to write, you can trace the letter in upper case and lower case. For the numbers, you can touch the picture and it will help your little one learn to count or touch the number and it will show you the correlating number of images
3. Interactive Alphabet (by Piikea Street):
Another great interactive alaphabet app – for the kids learning words, this is a gem. Touch the letter and a fun animated image will appear, it will say out the word that corresponds with the letter and touch the image to see something happen. For instance, touch the letter ‘A’ for apple and every time you touch the apple a bite will come out of it
4. ABC Music (by Peapod Labs):
For the kiddie musical instrument lovers, this is the app for you! Learning the alphabet with musical instruments and they can even watch a little clip of how the instrument is used.
5. Music Sparkles (by Kids Games Club):
Another app for the musical instrument lovers, this is an app where they can virtually play musical instruments. Choose your background beat and then play the drums or xylophone (the full version has more instruments to choose from) to that beat.
6. Musical Me (by Duck Duck Moose):
This app has different levels of fun (good for different ages) all to the popular nursery rhymes. The first level has animals that your little one moves to dance to the music, the second level you touch the birds to play the song, the third level is for the older one’s who are learning to copy patterns, the fourth level you play with the music notes to make your own song and the fifth level you pick instruments to play along to the music then start all over again to a new nursery rhyme and all the levels have super fun graphics
7. Zoo Train (by Busy Bee Studios):
Choose from 5 different games – 1. drag and drop the parts into the right shape and the more shapes you complete the closer the train is to getting to the station, 2. make your own music touching the steam whistles or click on the animals for the steam whistles to play popular nursery rhymes, 3. Learn how to spell and about letters by dragging and dropping the corresponding letters to the word on the train 4. Make a train track but putting the right parts into the right area for the train to go around 5. Make your own train by dragging and dropping the fun train parts into the given parts and then choose a scene for the train to go through (Frankie loves this one and laughs when the train starts moving)
8. Baby Touch and Hear Lite (by Open Solutions):
Another Frankie favorite! The animal animation is a lot of fun and exaggerated. Choose from animals or objects and listen to the noise they make. Whoever created this app was smart … they put a “lock” button on the controls which Frankie ALWAYS pushes and then gets upset when it changes screens (this happens often)
9. Baby First Puzzle Farm Lite (by Open Solutions):
A fun puzzle app which is great for 2 year olds. Your little one matches the given puzzle piece (which again has fun animation) to the matching empty space. When you touch the puzzle piece, the name of the item will be said and if it’s an animal you will hear the noise of the animal
10. Look & Learn: Animals (by National Geographic):
This is truly an amazing app!! Again another app that has a variety of things for all different age groups A. Go through the alaphabet and see real images of animals that go with the corresponding letter B.Find the correct letter that is called out and then if you get it right an animal that starts with that letter shows up C. Connect the letters in order which forms a shape and the shape turns into an animal D. Flamingo Flier is a fun game for the older kids where they tilt the phone to make the Flamingo go up and down to hit the letters of the alphabet and get it to its final destination E. Learn to write where you trace the letter and see what pops up – it even helps you by providing arrows to show you how to write the letter F. Mask maker is sooo much fun – take a picture of your little one and your face will appear in different animal masks. Gives the little one’s a great laugh
Well there you have it – clearly there is a common theme??!! My kid loves music, animals, the alaphabet and musical instruments and these are fan favorites.
