The gremlin is at the age now where we are teaching her the alphabet, recognising letters, writing letters and some basic phonics. I sometimes feel I need a little help though!
The gremlin loves the iPad and I do get a tad fed up of the daft YouTube videos she likes to watch. Only so many Spiderman stories which include Elsa!!
I’m always on the hunt for apps that are not too pricey but provide entertainment, education and a bit of fun too.
I was delighted to get to review the The Kidloland App which has a vast amount nursery rhymes, songs, activities and games for little ones. The app is aimed at the under 5s, with some free content. You can access more of the nursery rhymes by subscribing for 1, 6 or 12 months. There is also a nifty adult control, where you have to so some maths to access the controls. Will keep little hands away from messing with the settings.
There are a few categories of rhymes and activities that your little one can pick as you can see from the pictures below. There are some fab interactive things too, including mazes, colouring in, counting and matching colours.
The gremlin was fascinated with some of the nursery rhymes and sat mesmorised as she listened to some of them. You can create a playlist which would be good if I want to have 20 minutes tidying (or lying down on my bed!!). The songs go through the letters for example and some phonics.
The gremlin was also keen on the some of the interactive games where you had to move fruit from baskets, drinks to a pigs mouth and do some basic counting.
The gremlin really enjoyed playing with the app. She loved the songs and having a go at some of the activities. It is fun and suitable for little ones, especially if you want a bit of education too. Learning is so important at her young age. She got good at waiting for some of the songs to download, as well, as you can see on the last picture.
The app is available to download on Apple, Android (Google Play Store) and the Amazon App Store.

Educational games have definitely come on leaps and bounds since we were children. #bestandworst
Perfect for my son, he misses the mental stimulation during school holidays, this would be a good way of keeping him busy while I see to the baby.
This looks fab for children
