App Tested on iPad (available for both iPhone and iPad)
Good Stuff about this music ed app: At first, the mother who first tested this app for me said it didn’t really do much… UNTIL she noticed her 2 year old constantly going back to open it.
One great thing about this app is that it is simple and not all gobbed up with confusing things to click. The developers got this one right on for the age group.
The particular family I tested this app with has now had the app on their iPad for about 4 months and the parents say it is THE most opened app on the iPad at their home. Guess that tells us how the kiddos like it.
All the babes have to do is tap on the stars and the song “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” plays with each tap. Occasionally the rocket goes floating by. This always brings a toothless grin, even after the 400th time.
Our Wish List: We wish that there were more apps like this for our babies. It’s simple and so sweet.
My Love: Believe-it-or-not, the babies I tested this with started singing this song without any prompting from their parents. REALLY. They did. With enough repetition loads of things are possible for our wee ones.
Summary: All-in-all we feel parents can feel good about adding this app to their iOS device. The babes will find it, for sure. And, they’ll keep on coming back!
