Favourite iPhone apps for the kiddos

I love finding new and fun apps for the kids to play on the iPhone and iPod. Here are a few of our favourites right now:

Create A Car

This is probably my favourite kids app right now! Basically you build a car from bottom up, first choosing a frame, adding wheels, and all sorts of accessories. At the end you get to turn the key on and see your creation in action. I love that every creation is unique. It's even easy enough for Mylo at 2 and a half to master.

$1.29 on iTunes.

Lego Minifigures

This is a fun slot machine type game where you slide the screen to get a head, arms and legs. When you match all 3, you collect that mini figure. It's funny seeing some of the mismatched figures that come up while you're playing though.

Free to download in iTunes.

The Lorax Marshmallow Munch
This is a bit like Angry Birds but much more fun for the littlies as you get to rescue the marshmallows for the cute little Bar-ba-loots.

My Very First App (by Eric Carle)

This is a great game for preschoolers learning colours and the basics of the Memory matching game. It has the added bonus of the beautiful illustrations from Eric Carle.

$2.59 in iTunes.

This is definitely one of Mylo's favourites to play. It is at the perfect level for him to work on his recognition of words, colours, jigsaws and matching, collecting stickers along the way for right answers. If you tune out the slightly annoying but catchy background music, you can let them have a lot of fun with this!

This is a great app for kids learning to read, write and spell. As the mouse jumps over words, the letters appear for you to spell. In the harder levels, there are longer words and no clues for where to put the letters. A great app for Noah's age (five).

$2.59 in iTunes.

A great app for making maths learning fun. Matching the pictures to the numbers is level 1, and the harder levels go onto addition and multiplication. 

$0.99 to download in iTunes.

iWriteWords

A great introduction to writing letters in the right order with some fun pictures and games. You help Mr Crab collect the numbered balls by dragging him with your fingers, and drawing the letter at the same time. Once all the letters are drawn properly, a cute drawing appears. 

Free to download in iTunes.

This is a bit of fun for both young and old, trying to slide down the waterslide picking up as many points as possible, while avoiding the crabs or falling off the side of the slide. 

Free to download in iTunes.

You know how addictive bubble wrap is to pop, right? Right?! And now you can pop away to your heart's content on this free app. You can even choose which size bubbles you want to pop! Rather satisfying I must say.

Oobie's Space Adventure

This cutie-patootie game is our latest craze. Watch as Oobie blasts off past planets, stars, comets, asteroids and the moon, all of which you can interact with on each screen.

And I'd love you to share any of your tried and tested apps that keep your kids entertained!
