5 Kids iPad Apps We Love #MummyMondays

Kids iPad Apps

I remember thinking to myself prior to being a Mum that I wouldn’t let my children get sucked into technology such as iPads, but since becoming a mother, this has been inevitable and I have been introduced to the positives of this great technology in terms of education and learning. There have been numerous times when the iPad has become a lifesaver; whilst waiting in a doctor surgery that has no toys for an appointment that is running an hour behind, on an aeroplane or recently for us, during a campervan holiday. Here is a list of 5 of our favourite iPad apps for kids:

1. Play School Play Time 
I even enjoy playing around with this one. It’s great in teaching children how to tell the time, play dress ups, selecting and learning about healthy food, reading letters, learning about shapes and more. 

2. Peppa Pig Polly Parrot
Elliott giggles his head off while trying to feed Polly crackers, every time he clicks on Polly she squawks and talks and he thinks it’s hilarious. There’s more than feeding Polly crackers though,  there is matching pairs, connect the dots and Where’s Polly?

3. ABC IView
After spending money on purchasing individual Peppa Pig episodes (Elliott’s Favourite), I soon realised that we can watch ABC4Kids programs via ABC IView for free.

4. My Zoo Animals Toddler’s Seek & Find
The drawings on this app are wonderfully detailed and Elliott had so much fun discovering what would happen when you clicked on each animal or person in the picture. His favourite is the camel spitting water into an onlookers face, with some funny sound effects too. You can also purchase add ons including My Farm Animals and My Forest Animals.

 

5. Fisher Price Laugh & Learn Animal Sounds
You don’t have to have a Fisher Price toy to download this app. We’ve had this app for quite a while, it’s an interactive app which helps children to learn animal names and sounds.

Do your kids have any favourite apps?

    My bub is too young for apps at the moment but I will definitely check these out and get them for later. We love peppa pig already so I can see that one would be a hit.

    Those apps look gorgeous. There was nothing like that when my kids were little. We didn’t even have smart phones. The new technology is amazing! 🙂

      They are gorgeous. I’m pretty selective when it comes to which kids apps I put on the iPad, but these are great.

    We don’t have an ipad, buy ABC4kids is very popular on the computer with Izzy, she knows how to click on chrome and get to it by herself. Her and her sister squeeze onto the same chair to play games and watch episodes 🙂

    Thanks for this round up. We’ll be jumping on a plane to visit family this Christmas, so I definitely need to arm myself with lots of tools to help pass the time for my toddler

    Thanks for the suggestions, I might have to download a few of these for our big road trip south!

    We have letters school and a bug counting one which are really good. I am steering clear of all the others and only have educational things on it. Sadly they are a fact of life now and the kids are using them more and more in schools.

      Yes, I agree, they must be educational. I’m all for them being used for educational and developmental purposes.
