Top 10 iPad Apps For Toddlers
As the iPad has become increasingly commonplace in the home it doesn’t come as surprise that the iPad 2 is also being used for entertainment and learning purposes by both older and younger children alike. As a result there has been a significant growth in the development and launch of iPad apps aimed towards educating children and research has shown that these tools can be a useful aid for learning. As there are so many apps to choose from, we’ve put together a selection of our favourite paid for and free apps for iPad that we think you should take a look at.
Talking Gina the Giraffe
This iPad App encourages toddlers to help look after a pet Giraffe named Gina which they need to feed and talk to. Gina will then engage with your child by repeating the words that they have spoken and if they regularly play with Gina, she will reward them with balloons, kisses and funny voices that your child is sure to love.
This iPad App will provide your child with a virtual and interactive sticker book which has a selection of themes to pick from. Your toddler can then select a sticker and place it where they would like to create a bright and colourful scene.
This iPad App will provide your toddler with a selection of puzzles that range from five to ten pieces and upon completion a voice will tell your child the name of the image that they’ve just created.
