Oh, I love my iPad!
And my kids do, too. They love it so much, I've actually made them their very own page with games and apps just for them.
Included on this page are two new apps from Oscar's Apps, which I got a chance to review.
And let me tell you, I love them! And C, who is 3 1/2, loves them, too.
From their website:
Oscar's Apps is a fun and interactive learning environment for toddlers and preschool aged children.
I got the chance to review the Alphabet Song and 1-10 Balloons. Both are very similarly designed, with either the alphabet or numbers printed on balloons which kids "pop" in order. Both games have three options: Learn, Follow, and Play. In the "Learn" option, kids pop the highlighted balloons in order. In the "Follow" option, the balloons are all mixed up, but are highlighted in order. In the "Play" option, the balloons are still mixed up but aren't highlighted right away, giving kids the chance to remember the alphabet or numbers in order themselves.
As I said earlier, C loves these apps. The colors are vivid, the graphics are fun, and the "games" are simple but engaging.
C's been getting very, very curious about letters and numbers recently, and both of these apps from Oscar's Apps have been wonderful for her!
I personally like how the apps grow with children, from showing them, to guiding them, to allowing them to figure it out on their own. These apps are great for exploring letters and numbers! And I can't wait to start using them with M in the next year!
