iPhone Apps For Toddlers

Five fun iPhone and iPad games your toddler and preschooler will love


You’re out for coffee, grocery shopping or in line at the bank: naturally, your little one begins to act up. So instead of jangling keys in his or her face, take a look at our roundup of the best iPhone apps for toddlers, and save yourself some anxiety. After all, if apps can save us from boredom, think of what they’ll do for the little guys.





1. BabyPost PlayPlace, Free, iPad and iPhone 

Keep your toddlers entertained with 10 exciting games! The BabyPost’s very own Play Place is fun for the whole family, with easy-to-play memory, puzzle and drawing games. The BabyPost Play Place is a collection of 10 interactive games that will provide enjoyment for toddlers and parents alike! Play with the game’s original characters or upload and customize your own images with our fun filters and drawing tools. Each game has three levels to keep your little ones entertained. Designed for kids two years and up.

2. SmackTalk, $0.99; iPad and iPhone

True, this probably won’t make you many friends in the doctor’s office waiting room, but if your child gravitates towards sound-based activities, this app will be more than enough to keep them smiling elsewhere. SmackTalk records anything your child says and then plays it back faster or higher pitched, or even like a “fuzzy critter” depending on the settings. Think of it as a Talk Boy (remember Home Alone 2?) with a mind of its own – but perfect for any Alvin And The Chipmunks fan in training.

3. The Pianist, $3.99; iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch

Every child loves music, so why not start their musical education with an app that gives them the piano-playing experience? While toddlers won’t immediately grasp the key name or chords, the ability to make music and record it will be just as exciting. Offering a full 88-key piano (via app), kids can use the 3D keyboard to record and overdub as many times as they want, which is definitely better than an afternoon hitting spoons on kitchen pots while you’re trying to make dinner.

4. Shapes, Free; iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch

The best types of toys are educational, and Shapes provides a free geometry lesson while keeping your little one amused. Quizzing kids on basic shapes, it teaches him or her by asking for a specific one. Wrong answers are rewarded with a reminder of what shape they actually pointed to, while four right responses results in a virtual sticker. Math doesn’t get any better than that.

5. Alphabet Animals, $0.99; iPad, iPhone and iPad 

The sooner your child learns the alphabet, the better, so why not get them started with an app that teaches them to relate letters to their corresponding animals? Colourful, chalk-full of sound effects (so at the very least, you’ll get a laugh) and boasting terrific animation, these digital flashcards will prep your child for preschool when you need to multitask.
