The idea of giving your baby, toddler or child your fancy Android tablet or smartphone might not sound all that appealing. Especially when you factor in the dirty, sticky fingers that spread paint or food over that once shiny screen, the careless dropping or throwing around like an action figure or piece of Lego, and the potential for them to accidentally call your boss and make some ‘ga ga’ noises down the phone.
First up, is the rather self-explanatory Educational Games for Kids. It’s packed with different games that help stimulate different parts of your child’s brain to help enhance their memory and learn basic ideas from instruments to animals to more complicated issues and challenges. It’s a great addition and although it might not excel perfectly in each of the individual sectors, there is a lot of variety.
Great for all ages!
Another rather self-explanatory member of this list. If you want to help your toddler or baby start learning letters and remembering them then this app is the way to go. It’s a fun game that is engaging and interactive that allows youngsters to get involved and enjoy their learning.
Aimed at toddlers.
Okay, so you might have gathered that most items on this list are a little self-explanatory from their titles, but let’s not let that detract from their quality. Baby First Words 18+ Months is a fantastic learning game that helps babies start learning their first words. There are also loads of other learning games available from the developer, Androbaby, which includes first word apps for younger or older babies too. Check them out and you won’t be disappointed with the vast range of games available.
Babies 18 months and higher.
Educational..? Not so much. Loads of fun..? Definitely. Ant Smasher is a game which has been around from the very early days of Android apps and games. The concept is simple, you have to tap on the ants that invade your screen to squash them. You’ll gain points but as the difficulty increases you’ll find that you get overrun and ultimately fail. If you’re a baby or toddler however, you won’t care. You’ll just want to tap all over the screen without really worrying too much about the impending doom that you face if you don’t smash the ants. It’s fun and simple. What more could you want?
Suitable for all ages (although there is the fantasy concept of squashing ants).
Last up we have Easy Drawing for Kids. This game aims at increasing the creativity and artistic ability of your child by allowing them to learn how to draw cartoons that look great yet are very simple to complete. It is more suitable for children with slightly higher attention spans than some younger toddlers but if you think your child can concentrate and is patient, you’ll find some great results.
More suitable for toddlers aged 3 and higher.
