My boys and I were recently given an opportunity to try KidloLand, an educational app aimed at toddlers and preschoolers, which was perfect for B3 who is 3 next month.
The app features:
- 95+ classic nursery rhymes which are displayed as interactive videos, so your child can click on a variety of items on the screen which come alive.
- ABC Phonics featuring songs and activities to take the first steps towards reading.
- Learning through Games, the kids won’t even realise they’re learning.
- 300+ activities which will develop your child’s pre-math skills, sequencing skills, picture & number comprehension, problem solving skills, build memory & develop their imagination & creativity.
My children are fairly tech savvy, I have always allowed monitored and timed screentime as I believe this will equip them with some technical skills when they reach school but often find it difficult to find suitable apps, many are filled with ads and children, particularly toddlers and preschoolers do not understand ads!
Kidloland operates under a subscription service but that means there are no ads in the app which meant B3 could tap and drag over anything without me worrying he is making purchases or clicking on often inappropriate ads.
You can sign up for a trial period to test the app.
B3 had no problems opening the app and selecting where he wanted to go. He came across some puzzles which he was able to complete with ease. The nursery rhymes were great and he loved clicking on the screen to watch it come alive. We both loved the read to me books.
B2 who is 6 years old also loved the app and spent just as long as B3 exploring, B4 who is 6 month old loved the music and bright colours on the screen.
I guess the only negative is that the content must be downloaded, it’s not overly big but my devices are constantly at full capacity so I needed to clear some space to download everything. The up side to that though is that the content is available offline.
