CosmoCamp Dress Up App

There is a Polar Bear and a Panda Bear named Migo and Pandy who both love to play dress up.  If your kids are in the 2-3 toddler range or in the 3-5 pre-school range, they're going to love to play dress up with Migo and Pandy too. What is even better, you won't see all your clothes spread all over the places. They are neatly organized on your iPad. In this sweet, slow moving app there are fewer bells and… Read More

The Book of Holes

The Book of Holes is what I like to call a 'progressive' approach to explaining the way the world works by virtue of its holes. This App is based on a 2006 Children's Book written and designed by Poul Lange, a Design Firm based in LA who creates among other things, book cover designs. In 2006, this particular book made the top 50 list of best designed books according to the American Institute of Graphic Arts. In other words, this… Read More

LEGO Movie Maker

We are crazy about this LEGO Movie Maker App. The reason we love it so much mostly stems from its versatility. My son and I can make a very rudimentary ten second film, or we can pass it off to my husband who might just produce a full length feature soon because he is so obsessed. Your child (or in my case, husband) chooses from just 5 different opening title scenes so it's not too overwhelming for a little one… Read More

Easy Studio Animate with Shapes

Easy Studio – Animate with shapes is a fun app you and your kids will all like.  Just like the app title suggested, it lets kids put together animations on the iPad using only geometric shapes. There are two play modes: Easy and Expert.  When kids first start the app, they will be in Easy mode.  Kids will watch a tutorial on the basic functionalities – how to move pieces onto the canvas, how to take single pictures, how to play the… Read More

Buildo Museum Sticker Book

The Buildo Museum is an interactive sticker book. It  allows your child the opportunity to create their own scenes inside a spooky museum. They have three options to choose from: 1. The gallery floor where they can hang paintings (or perhaps stage a heist!). 2. The dusty museum attic full of cobwebs and discarded artifacts. 3. The creepy museum basement where maybe monsters are created Each of these places is the potential backdrop for the scenes your child can create with digital… Read More

Bamba Pizza

Do your kids like pizza?  Do they like to make pizza?  We have a local pizza restaurant where kids can watch, through a big window, how pizzas were made.  Every time when we eat there, my son has to go watch and there are always many kids line up at the window waiting for their turns.  Now kids get the opportunity to make pizza themselves – on the iPAD.  Bamba Pizza is the app that letting kids be the chefs. … Read More

Toca Tailor

Toca Tailor is FREE for limited time, from typical price $2.99.  iGameMom reviewed Toca Tailor Fairy Tale, a similar app from the same developer.  While Toca Tailor Fairy Tale has two fairy characters for kids to play with, Toca Tailor has four characters.  It is an app I would recommend even if it is not free, so grab it while it is on deal.  While in the app, kids pick one of the four characters they want to dress up… Read More

ArtMail App

Traveling with kids can be one of two things…an absolute joy, or a terrifyingly stressful ordeal. The best thing a parent can do to prevent the latter is to BE PREPARED. Enter my secret weapon---the iPad. On long bus, train or plane rides, we do as many non-digital activities as possible. But the inevitable point always comes when the iPad is the best solution. My arsenal of Apps always have a real world component, that means whatever activity we do… Read More

Toca Tailor Fairy Tales App

Toca Boca just released a new app Toca Tailor Fairy Tale, and it is FREE.  Toca Boca is known for developing apps with open-ended free play.  I have reviewed their Toca Doctor, Toca Store, Toca Kitchen, and Toca Hair Salon.  None of them disappointed me.  In this new app Toca Tailor Fairy Tale, they bring the old-fashioned dress up play onto iPhone/iPAD, and with so much more!  For example, kids can take pictures of any objects they like and then use them as design patterns for the clothes.  I… Read More
