Congratulations. The winner will be sent the promo code. Thanks everyone. If you didn't win, please try and enter my other giveaway (ends 3/28) for Wheels on the Bus - another cool toddler app.

As a busy mom to two I love that I can distract my 3 year old with learning games on my iPhone for those times when I really need a minute to myself, or the moments when nothing else will keep them quiet. My son plays mostly in the car on the way home from day care, or in the evenings when I am getting dinner ready. My son loves the word and animal games most. 

Tickle Tap Apps are fun for preschoolers.  From their Site:

These apps for the iPhone and iPod Touch encourage learning through practice and exploration. All 10 apps in the series are designed to help children:

  1. Improve coordination, concentration and motor skills
  2. Practice preschool-level math, pattern, color and spatial concepts
  3. Tap into creativity and curiosity
 Here is Our Review (my son and I):

These apps are geared towards preschoolers so I reviewed this with my 3 year old son.

Sound Shaker

Choose from 6 different sounds to tap away at and make your own combined tunes.  We love the hatching egg that comes when you ring circles on the screen or hold down on the phone. It is very creative and engaging. My son comes back to it after playing other games.

Things we liked:
  1. Great graphics
  2. Cool Music
  3. Good for short snaps of time (less than 3 mins)
  4. Nice sensory options, holding down finger, swirling, turning phone.
Things that could be improved:
  1. More types of hatching animals
  2. More sounds

Field Flier

Little Robin flies around the screen doing little things such as sleeping, swimming and, swinging. The object of the game is to take Robin the little bird around the screen by dragging Robin or tapping on the green hotspot for Robin to get to. It is a story based app rather than a game.

Kids learn the different adjectives that fill Robin's day such as swinging and standing.

Things we liked:
  1. Beautiful graphics, with cute little animations
  2. Cool music
  3. Embedded Youtube video demonstration

Things that we thought could be improved on:
  1. This didn't hold my son's attention, I think he was confused when dragging the bird. It is a half drag and half automatical pull towards the hot spot. You can hit the hot spot for Robin to get to, or drag Robin.
  2. It crashed on us four times (just cancel and start again)
  3. No sense of when the app ends

I think overall it might be better for a 18 month to 2 year old.

Apps cost $1.99 at the iTunes Store or try your luck and win a copy in our giveaway below.
