She {hearts} Drea’s favorite APP’S

I had a request from a reader – to write a few post on our favorite apps. For those who don’t have a iphone, or droid… or ipad, etc..etc.. this post will mean nothing :) – however for those who do have these things, finding good apps to entertain the kids, can be a life saver at a Doctor’s Office or on long trips.

So here is a list of my favorites!

For the Kids:

Soosiz HD – (cost) I am amazed how well my 5 year old can play it. Each world you beat on it, the levels get harder. So it is always creating for a more challenging game. Which I like :)

Fruit Ninja HD - (free) Hilarious. Fun. Great for entertaining groups of kids – last time I was with my nieces, we had a competition to see who could get the highest score.

Checkers – (free) Classic game. Great for teaching kids strategy.

Sonic – (cost) I was a huge Sonic Sega fan. So I had to have this. My kids however love it too. It’s just like the Sega version!

Early Bird HD – (free) It’s sorta like angry birds, but for younger kids.

Pocket Phonics – (free lite version, I upgraded to full version for like a buck) – great for teaching kids to write! we use this as an activity during home school writing… It also has cursive, which we really push in K-2nd

Carl & Gugi – (cost) So funny, slightly annoying… but Owen (age 2) adores it.

Contraptions – (cost) One of my favorites for sure. For older kids age 7 and up. It really teaches them to solve problems and build things.

TallyTots – (cost) Teaches basic numbers – Owen loves it, although he cant count yet… but our older two actually enjoy it too.

Talking Tom – (free) Similar to Carl & Gugi – but free. Our boys all love this one.

Lego Duplo – (free) If your kids enjoy Legos they will like this one.

Swapsies - (cost) A great one for pre-school kids.

I also recently downloaded Toca Monsters & Curious Zoo – my kids haven’t played the ipad since downloading that though, so I can’t promote those as good ones :) – but they did get great ratings and both are free.

Now next time I will write a post with MY favorite APPS ;-)

  1. Thanks for doing the research on these apps. I may link to your site from one of my posts to suggest these ideas for small kids (specifically for parents trying to keep little ones occupied at their older siblings sports events).

    I tried looking for “Contraptions” but 14 or 15 different things came up. Can you clarify the app title?
