Amelia has shown more attention to the iPad lately. She's always been one for playing with both my iPhone and iPad but I tend to keep that upstairs as I play her lullabies on it at bedtime. She was forever chewing, throwing, hitting my phone and I was always trying to keep it away from her until I decided to download an app for her one day and I only wish I had done so sooner! She no longer chews on it and actually sits there playing on it instead. I have downloaded many apps when she was younger which she has been loving and still uses a lot of them now.
This is one of the first apps I downloaded for Amelia and it's helped Amelia learn some of the alphabet. I must say it's the best alphabet app out there that I have come across. The song is so catchy and unforgettable. Amelia laughs nonstop at some of the funny sounds and faces the animals makes.
Wee Sing & Learn 123
Another favourite of Amelia's is this app which allows your child to sing along under the sea with sea critters to learn numbers. They are all clickable and sound out numbers and music. The Wee Sing & Learn 123 app effectively teaches numbers and counting through the use of music and charming animation.
Fisher Price Laugh & Learn Shapes & Colours
In this app babies and toddlers are encouraged to learn about shapes and colours through interactions with engaging animations, sounds and sign along songs. This is designed for babies aged 6 months and up and I believe we started using it around this time. Amelia still loves it now at 21 months.
Fisher Price Animal sounds For Baby
This is a app for younger babies and is recommended from 6 months up. They are encouraged to learn animals and the sounds animals make through inter nation with engaging animations and sound effects. Amelia has learnt a lot of Amelia noises through this app and loves the music it plays when you've learnt an animal sound.
Talking Baby Monkey
This app is packed full of amazing and funny animations. He will repeat everything your say in his awesome voice and is guaranteed to be tons of fun for you and your child. Amelia loves tickling him to make him laugh and feed him bananas.
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Interactive Sing Along
This app includes 8 educational activities and games for your baby or toddler, along with the full interactive Twinkle Twinkle song. Amelia has always loved this song and we always play it on the iPad on youtube before bed. She loves waving at the owl in the video so I decided to download this app one day and she loves it and is always singing along.
Sound Touch - Baby Flash Cards
Amelia loves this app! She has learnt so many of the objects and animals by using the app. It includes over 100 pictures and sounds of animals, vehicles, instruments and household items. It occupies Amelia when we are eating out and is perfect for toddlers!
