More iPhone Apps for Toddlers

by verdemama on October 27, 2010

It’s been a while since my last list of iPhone apps for babies and toddlers, so I figured it’s time for an update!

Orion still loves playing with my iPhone, which I let him do, usually only in those emergency instances of extreme-boredom-bordering-massive-meltdown. I still think human interaction, getting out in nature, reading books, cuddling, etc. are the ideal options for quality time with one’s offspring, but we all know not every moment can be ideal. (So there’s my disclaimer. Spend time with your kids, people!) When you need five minutes of quiet sanity, there are always iPhone apps. Thank. God.

Splish Splash Inn

This app was a pleasant surprise—a fantastical underwater hotel populated by charmingly illustrated musical sea creatures. Kids can select a door 1 through 10 and see who and how many creatures live therein, then tap the animals to create different musical sounds. Orion loves fish (we are members of the Aquarium of the Pacific and go there often) and he’s crazy about this app. ($1.99)

My Very First App

This is more like Orion’s 40th app, but considering it’s based on the celebrated illustrations of Eric Carle (author of The Very Hungry Caterpillar and countless other classics), this particular app’s name is, well, apt. I did have my doubts about this one at first, even though it’s from the developers of Orion’s beloved Peekaboo Barn and Peekaboo Wild apps. It seemed a little difficult and not terribly exciting for a young toddler to use, but it turns out Orion is drawn to these familiar illustrations (and anything featuring a fire truck is a winner in his book). He’s currently in full-on parrot phase as well, so he enjoys repeating the words he hears played in the game. ($.99 for the basic app; add-ons extra)

Itsy Bitsy Spider

We’re pretty much in love with all apps developed by Duck Duck Moose, and this one especially has kept Orion entertained through countless high-stress situations, including airplane trips and our barf-tastic Alaskan cruise illness. Like all DDM apps, this one is highly interactive with tons of educational aspects. Check out their other apps as well, because they’re all fantastic, and affordable to boot. ($.99)

I do get sent quite a few promo codes to try out new iPhone apps—including Splish Splash Inn and My Very First App—but I don’t feature them all. So rest assured, if you see them on, they are Orion-approved.
