I received compensation for this review but all opinions are my own.
Eleanor doesn't really understand the ipad and all it can do for her yet. She thinks its just a fun place to sit. I had to make sure it's out of her reach or she will sit on it. But once and a while I will go through an education app with her and she thinks it's so cool. I do want to utilize it more as she grows up so given the chance to test out some education apps was a great fit.
Kids Academy is the creator of several educational apps that I recently reviewed.
Kids Puzzle Preschool Math:
This app has you trace numbers and in doing so you 'earn' fireflies with the goal of filling a jar. It's easy to trace along with and it speaks the number as well as offering affirmation which is encouraging to children. Even I was all "yeah I did it!" Okay not really, but I could have been. :)
Learn to Read & Write:
This app has easy mazes, rhyming words and uppercase letter activities.
The Easy mazes start with just a few turns and get more complex by adding more turns and dead ends to challenge the children.
On the rhyming word setting it gives you a maze with several objects/animals and a word and you have to get to the word that rhymes with it. For example the word was pen and there was a hen and a cat.
Preschool Kindergarten Learning:
This is fun and I like how their is many different levels. It allows your child to practice fine motor while learning letters and playing fun games.
The only thing that I didn't like is that to access all the features (on all apps) you have to pay for them, however they are great features.
There is a parent area where you can check on your child's progress and I like that feature.
You can download the apps by clicking on the title to be taken to the app store. To purchase the full versions the cost is between 2.99-9.99
