Review : Toca Pet Doctor

tocapetdr

It’s been a little while since Toca Boca has had a new digital toy out for the iPad….or at least it feels like it. Thankfully, either way, my kids can enjoy a new app from the award-winning team that seems to get kids better than any other app developer out there. The latest app is called Toca Pet Doctor, and it lets kids nurture and care for 15 injured pets by offering assistance in treating wounds, and giving them plenty of love. (more…)

Review : Ansel & Clair – American Bowl

bowlingamerican

American Bowl is a kids app from the creators of the great Ansel & Clair exploring apps. American Bowl is a bit different in that this app is more of a trivia game with bowling added in for a bit of fun, but it’s equally as educational and my kids found it interesting from the start. (more…)

Review : Toca Mini for iPad

tocamini

It seems like every other month I’m sitting down to write a review about Toca Boca and their apps. One would think it would get boring, that their apps would start to falter, but…if you think that, you’d be wrong. Toca Boca have done it again with Toca Mini. They’ve taken an app for kids, made it fun and easy, given children tons of freedom, and kids love it. Again. (more…)

Review : Word Search For Kids 2 for iPad

wordsearchkids2

Sometimes there are apps that make life easier, and sometimes they don’t. One thing I’ve constantly struggled with is finding a good app for my kids that lets them do word searches easily. They love word searches, but remembering to bring the book of them is something we struggle with. So I thought we’d turn to the iPad a while back. There are a bunch of word search apps out there, but too many times they end up being much too complicated for my younger daughter of six years of age to use. Thankfully Word Search For Kids 2 breaks that pattern, and she is having a blast. (more…)

Toca Cars for iOS

tocacars

One of the biggest names in app development for kids is Toca Boca. For the past 3 years this group of people have been churning out app after app for children, without a single clunker. Each of their apps presents kids with a canvas and a purpose, but don’t worry if that purpose isn’t adhered to, this is “no rules gaming”, for the digital age. My kids have loved Toca Boca, and our iPad is filled with their apps. Now they’re back, with Toca Cars, a universal app that holds true to the philosophy of the company. (more…)

I’m always looking for apps that allow my kids to use the iPad for educational purposes and thankfully there are plenty of great apps that allow me to do just that.

Review : Meet the Insects: Water & Grass Edition

meetinsectslogowg

The iPad is a entrainment device. It’s a consumption machine. It’s a creation tool. It’s also a highly educational medium, and apps like Meet the Insects are helping push this point home. Not all kids like bugs, many adults don’t either. However, with this series of apps users can experience and get an understanding of a variety of insects that would otherwise go unnoticed. (more…)
