If you have a baby or toddler then it's never too early to start learning; in fact, that's the best time to start learning since they are like little sponges. The Funny Animals for baby and preschool toddler app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone provides parents with a way to engage with their children in a fun and educational manner. This app uses animals in its educational lessons so they can capture the child's attention and keep it.
This app has been made for children age six months to three years. As mentioned it uses cute and adorable animals to teach its lessons, what child doesn't love animals! The skills the app addresses are helping kids learn how to recognize the different animals, learn the animals’ names, work on fine motor skills, visual, and auditory skills. There are three different modes of play in this app which are name it, spot it, and learning. Each focuses on a different skill and activity all of which are important in a child's development.
This app hasn't been updated in a while but it doesn't seem to be bothering users as it consistently rates high from parents. While the app is free to download many of the options/lessons are available as packages through in-app purchases, which range in price from $0.99 to $2.99.
Child-Friendly Learning Experience
I think one of the most important and impressive features about this app is that it offers a child-friendly learning experience, which encourages kids to keep learning and keep coming back to the app. There are a number of interactive activities and games centered on the cute and colorful animals. The app manages to strike a balance between education and entertainment, which is key with all children's apps, but especially those in this age range. Keep in mind the idea of the app isn’t to just hand it over to kids and walk away; rather, it’s for parent’s to play and engage with children.
Launch the app and select your game mode to start playing. All of the activities/games feature spoken instructions so kids can follow along. There is encouragement throughout and there is no pressure to get the right answer, work against a time clock, or any such thing. The animations are all extremely cute in these activities, the colors bright and vivid, and the sound effects are fabulous.
