8. Moo, Baa, La La La! – Sandra Boynton (Cost: $4.49)
One of our favourite e-books in this house, the Moo, Baa, La La La! interactive book app has all the magic and appeal of a traditional pop-up book, with lively interactivity and lots of discovery for little ones.
9. Peek-a-boo (Cost: $0.99)
Little T has had this app since he was a baby, but still goes back to it. Best suited for an iPhone or iPod touch so the kids can shake it easily. By pressing the smiling face or shaking the iPhone a cartoon animal will appear and make your child’s favourite animal noises. Animals include: Dog, Bird, Cat, Pig, Parrot, Duck, Frog, Chicken, Cockerel and Mouse.
10. ABC for Kids (Cost: Free)
Little T finds this one hard to navigate, but if I put the content on for him, it goes down a treat – especially the clips from Giggle and Hoot. Includes content from The Wiggles, Play School, Bananas in Pyjamas, Justine Clarke and Jay Laga’aia.
I would love it if you could share in the comments section any links to other iPad or iPhone apps suitable for Toddlers.
