Apple iPhone apps for kids may just be the next best thing. The numerous iPhone apps available for children make waiting in line, running errands and traveling with bored and restless children a thing of the past. Just hand your child an iPhone with a few children’s apps added and they will be occupied for hours. With so many children’s iPhone apps being added practically every day, parents may have a hard time choosing which ones to add to their phones for their children to use. To help take the confusion out of picking iPhone apps for kids here are five of my favorite children’s iPhone apps.
Top Five iPhone Apps For Kids
1. iPlay Phone
I love this app designed especially for toddlers. It turns the iPhone into a pretend phone for little ones with brightly numbered keys to push that mimic the real iPhone without the worry that they will accidentally call real people. It’s recommended for ages 2 and up, but even younger children will love pressing the numbers and talking on the phone. The iPlay app for iPhone is available from iTunes and retails for $.99.
2. Giraffe’s Matching Zoo Deluxe
Children will love testing their memory skills as they try to find and match pairs of animals in this fun memory matching app for iPhone.In addition to the cute animal pictures each animal has it’s own sound to add to the fun.This app is recommended for all ages.Giraffe’s Matching Zoo Deluxe for iPhone is available from iTunes and retails for $.99
Budding artists will love this app which turns your iPhone into an artists tablet. Kids can draw with different pen sizes and use tons of colors. It also includes an option that lets kids draw and color on actual photos from your iPhone. When they are finished drawing kids have the opportunity to save their masterpiece or erase it by simply shaking the iPhone.This app is recommended for ages 4 and up but with adult assistance younger children will also enjoy creating their own unique pictures. The Scribble app for iPhone is available from iTunes and retails for $.99
4. Scoops- Ice Cream Fun For Everyone
Who doesn’t love ice cream. In this fun app for iPhone kids try to catch falling scoops of ice cream on their cones as they tilt the iphone back and forth to stack the scoops on their con while avoiding the falling vegetables. The higher the cone gets the more wobbly it gets and the faster the cones and vegetables fall making catching the scoops quite a challenge. This app is recommended for kids and adults alike. The Scoops app for iPhone is available on iTunes as a free download.
5. The Pianist
What kid doesn’t love playing the piano? If your child loves music then Apple’s Pianist app for the iPhone will definitely be something they enjoy playing.The app turns your iPhone’s screen into an 88 key piano. It allows children to play and compose to their hearts content and even lets them record their masterpieces to play it back for you to enjoy, or maybe not. It’s recommended for ages 4 and up but even younger children will enjoy banging on the ivories. The Pianist app for iPhone is available from iTunes and retails for $3.99.
