Our friends at Little Learning Tots have made their app Fido Goes Places DX FREE FOR ONE HOUR!
In this app, toddlers and preschoolers use visual discrimination to help a cute little monkey named Fido find all sorts of misplaced items. Heather reviewed this app here.
(It will also be free for one hour in 12 hours for the other side of the planet.) -Ron

Little toddlers aged 2 - 5 are beginning to engage in more cognitive activities. They are more alert to their environment and begin to remember details in their environment, identify items and describe things. Cognitive simulating activities are required at this age.
Instead of the usual flashcards which calls for memorization of isolated items, Fido Goes Places is designed to engage little tots in a more purposeful play where they start to identify items in a complex environment.
Fido Goes Places enables little toddlers to learn items in their environmental context and train them to have an eye for details, a practice which can be extended to real life environment.
In this way, toddlers are trained on cognition and at the same time, learning to identify items through the gallery of pictures presented.
Audio is provided to aid toddlers in their learning.
