5 Toddler Apps

Leave a comment

This week I decided to post about some toddler apps we have found for the iPad. We ended up getting one of the iPad3 the day it came out because we are a bit impatient and finally decided it was time for us to bite the bullet and get one since we kind of missed it (Chad had one previously with work, but when we went on our own he lost it). So far, Morgan seems to hog the iPad and we havent gotten a ton out of use out of it, but Morgan loves it.

Counting Bear App

I have a serious love-hate relationship with it because its great for educational but I also dont want it to become a babysitter either. So here are a few we have found (only doing 5 at a time, so check back next week for some more)

1. Easy Bake Treats-FREE
This app is so fun because she gets to learn the basic skills of cooking such as mixing, frosting, putting things in the oven, etc. They have lots of fun frostings, sprinkles, letters to put on your cupcake or cookie.

2. Counting Bear-$0.99
I can not say enough wonderful things about this app! Morgan is really learning to count well all with the help of this wonderful app. It’s a tie for best app between this and peekaboo barn.

3. Talking Tom-FREE
This will provide tons of laughs & giggles. It repeats everything you say, even laughs. Of course I made the mistake of leaving this on while I was correcting Morgan. She thought it was pretty funny & I was trying not to laugh when this cat repeated every word!
4. Peekaboo Barn-1.99 (also have a free version of it)
If you have not downloaded this app-it’s wonderful! You click on a different animal & it tells you what it is in a child’s voice. Morgan can now correctly identify each animal with the help of this app.
5. Virtuoso-FREE
This was one of the first apps we got when chad had his previous iPad. You can play a small piano & it’s lots of fun.

Anyone else have any great apps that I didn’t list?
