My daughter has a propensity to choose videos over almost any game, but I'd rather she play interactive games more than videos. Apps like Peppa Pig - Happy Mrs Chicken are a good compromise. This app features a favorite character in Peppa Pig, but instead of just a video, it's a series of games and puzzles. If you have a Peppa Pig fan in your house, this app might be just what you need. Take a look in Ellie's great demo video!
I know many preschoolers who love firefighters, and this app looks like a great way for them to learn while pretending to be a firefighter. There are six learning games, designed just for younger players. It's really a great pick for both learning and entertainment. But don't take my word for it — you can watch Ellie's excellent demo video. Her videos are the best available, and let you have a peek into the app and its play before you download it!
Bottom line: A brand new app that allows kids to practice math skills in a unique way through the use of matrices. It's a great way to practice visual perceptual skills also. Geared toward children in preschool through second grade, this app may require some initial instruction from an adult before appropriate independent play occurs, but once users get it, the learning that results from using this app could be significant.
Bottom Line: An app with a seemingly endless amount of content for your preschooler. Ebooks, songs, videos, puzzles and games will keep little ones occupied and learning for hours. Some content is free; the rest can be unlocked for an in-app purchase of $2.99. Try before you buy — some of the activities are a little advanced for toddlers and preschoolers.
