Bottom Line: Another fun offering from the wonderful developers of the Dr. Panda apps. This time, the fun features the most adorable little turtle, Toto, and his adventures in his tree house. Make food, play games, take a turtle bath and more. Plus, there’s nothing quite like watching a turtle lick the plate clean after a veggie sandwich!
Bottom Line: Another excellent offering from Croco Studios, Build and Play 3D — Planes Special Edition is just what it says — a special edition chock full of personality packed planes for users to build and fly. Following in the footsteps of the superb Build and Play 3D, this special edition is another Top Pick in my book.
Bottom line: A fabulous math app for your special needs or young elementary-aged child. Since we first reviewed ToDo K-2 Math Practice, it has evolved to an app with a new name and even more math. The new ToDo Math is built on the same basic premise with math activities that can be completed in two different ways. Replacing the original timed math practice, there are now Missions for users to complete. Or, children can engage in free choice which allows them to select math activities as they wish.
Bottom Line: This app from Monkimun is superb for teaching kids how to write 24 different Mandarin Chinese characters. It provides leveled tracing practice, the Mandarin pronunciation of the word, and fun interactions with each character. Use it to learn Chinese, or to practice fine motor skills and visual-spatial skills in a new way.
