There is something about raccoons that I just love. I can’t explain it. The cute little cartoon raccoon and other forest creatures are just one of the many things that drew me to TinyHands' Raccoon Treehouse app. Cute, high quality graphics only go so far. Luckily this app has lots more to offer! With 12 educational activities focusing on sorting, matching, patterns, colors and more, children will have fun while learning many key skills.
Bottom Line: MiniSchool offers a collection of six educational activities with varying levels of difficulty to help teach and reinforce several academic skills. Whimsical ocean-themed scenes and characters keep children entertained while working for a ribbon of success. Though many of the activities benefit younger children, the varying difficulty levels allow this app to grow with the child through multiple years.
**FREE today only! 8/15**
Bottom Line: Creative Book is a FREE app designed to let you create your own coloring pages using any of 500+ stickers to construct scenes straight out of your imagination. While it is nothing revolutionary, it is a nicely made creative app. But in a market flooded with apps to help you create your own books, this app might need to do some tap dancing to distinguish itself.
I don’t know about your kids, but when my kids were toddlers they were fascinated by phones. Any phones. House phones. Cell phones, especially my iPhone, once I finally got one. They were so fascinated with my iPhone, I was half afraid my son would text gibberish to my boss (or my mother-in-law). Now you can let your preschooler “text” and “call” people to their heart’s content with Kid’s Play Phone and not worry about the repercussions.
