Best Apple Apps For Kids


Wondering which kids’ apps are worth the downloading and which will just take up space on your device? These iPhone or iPad apps will keep your kid entertained while teaching your kids numbers, letters, music, art etc. We have lots of apps for kids on my iPhone, but in my opinion, these are the best apple apps for kids.

P.S. If you own Wii U – this is what I would recommend before every one of these other apps. Wii U game: Now I know my ABCs is a great way to teach your toddlers alphabet!

Kids in this app can listen to the song in five different languages while reading the lyrics in English. Touch different stuff on the screen to open bus doors, make windshield wipers go “swish, swish, swish,” and make bubbles pop. This is really fun game for young children (and for parents too).

5. Funky Bots

This fun app encourages and develops creativity, but at the same time it’s just plain fun. Kids play with dancing robots, giving them some dance moves, and then choose music tunes for them to dance to. Good thing in this app is the fact that there is no in-app transactions. I love that. One of best apple apps for kids!
