iPhone Apps for Toddlers?!

June 24th, 2009 8:07pm

Ok, now I know that kids are getting more computer savvy at a much earlier age, but seriously…iPhone Applications for toddlers? Yes, I did roll my eyes when I first discovered these games after purchasing my iPhone. But I have to give it up for the genius application designers that came up with these little gems! I tried out a few of these “preschool apps” and have found them an absoluetly indespensible addition to my iPhone repertoire!

From long lines to even longer waits at doctors offices, these little iPhone apps have created happy, busy children who would otherwise have been devoting their efforts to a well orchestrated tantrum performance. I’ve reviewed a few of these favored applications in our forum area of the website so make sure you stop and take a look at some of our product reviews in our parent forum.

Several applications that I would whole heartedly recommend are listed below with age recommendations…

  • For Toddler to 4 or 5 years old: Preschool Adventures, Bubble Wrap, TicTacFree, Scribble Lite, XmasPuzzle, Christmas Tree Decoration
  • For 4 or 5 to 8 (and even older): Glyder (although the controls definitely take some practice before you can really enjoy this one), Everest: Hidden Expedition, FastLane Street Racing, TanZen, Word Scramble, WordsWorth, Brain Tuner and Booty Blocks.

For a review of each of these games, check out our forum area for parents under “Product Reviews” and you can see individual reviews for each of these games. Keep your eyes on this forum for new product reviews to come!
