FREE for a limited time – 7 GREAT apps for preschoolers from Piikea Street LLC.
Kids lead bees to flowers and learn to count (to 20) using Counting Bees, an educational app for preschoolers. Counting is taught in ranges of increasing difficulty: 1-5, 1-10, 1-15, and 1-20. Using this app, kids also can learn to count in multiple languages – English, Spanish, French, Italian, German, Mandarin Chinese, Cantonese Chinese, and Japanese. Simple to use and nicely done!
Memory Train is fun game of concentration and focus for preschoolers and primary students. Kids hop on the train with Spacey the elephant to help him remember what he sees on his way to the circus. They earn stars, badges, and peanuts (of course) as they advance through 10 different levels. This educational app includes slots for 4 players so that friends & family can join the fun. There are no words spoken (just music) so this app can be used by children of all languages. Another excellent educational app from Pi’ikea!
Mask Jumbled Animals is a fun educational app for kids. It turns their faces into animal faces! Kids look into the app’s mirror and animal parts will appear on their faces. They tap to match the ears, nose, chin, and hair in order to complete 1 of 20 different animal masks. When the mask is complete, kids catch strawberries in their mouths to unlock a new mask. The mask puzzles are really cute for preschoolers who will be delighted to be an elephant, a lion, a panda, etc. But… the best part of this app is the ability to take pictures of kids in their masks which makes this app a fabulous resource for creative writing! Pull those pictures into a story writing app and off you go. 🙂
Also available is Mask Jumble Halloween. It works the same way as Mask Jumbled Animals but with 10 Halloween masks.
Photo Bobo is an adorable photo browsing app for babies & toddlers. Bobo the monkey swings in and out of photos, drops bananas, and plays funny tricks as little ones browse through pictures. It is safe to let kids browse through camera roll pictures with this app because there is no edit, share, or delete button. That being said, young kids can still tap out of the app so it’s best to supervise. 🙂 When Bobo adds sunglasses, a hat, or a mustache to a pic, they seem to end up in the correct spot which is pretty amazing. Really cute – check it out!!
Interactive Alphabet is one of the best alphabet apps that I have reviewed for babies, toddlers, & preschoolers. It’s so cute and well designed! To start you choose an accent (American or British) and a mode. It has 3 modes for your developing child – baby, explore, and trace. The baby mode takes your child on a guided, touchable tour of the alphabet. The explore mode lets children discover the sights & sounds of the alphabet at their own pace. It features fun activities that kids will want to explore multiple times. In the trace mode, kids learn to properly trace letters (lower case, upper case, or mixed) and words. The app keeps track of your child’s progress by starring the letters & words that are traced most often. The app can also be personalized by adding your own words and pictures. Your child can learn to trace his/her own name as well as the names of other family members, family pets, etc. This educational app truly lays the foundation for reading and spelling! Fabulous – this developer seems to have thought of everything!
And last but not least… Xylophone from Interactive Alphabet, a toddler friendly xylophone that helps kids play nine different songs: Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Doe a Deer, Happy Birthday, Ode to Joy, Old MacDonald, Row your Boat, Mary Had a Little Lamb, Jingle Bells, and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. Kids just follow the helping hand to play – how fun!
