Do you allow screen time for your little ones? If you do, what are your kids favorite apps? Are they educational, or purely entertainment? As a millennial mom, I understand the struggle between balancing screen time, education and entertainment when you yourself are being pulled in several different directions.
I am always concerned with the amount of screen time my kids are exposed to, and fight to keep an age appropriate balance. When we do allow screen time with my toddler, I prefer that she be benefitting from the time – not just being mindlessly entertained. Unfortunately, many of the so called “educational” apps I had come across were disappointing. Barely educational, frustrating for my toddler, had limited accessibility, pop-up ads, etc.
The KidloLand App came at the perfect time, I had just had a new baby, was packing up our house and getting ready for our out of state move. I needed to be sure that my toddler could play and learn and that I wouldn’t have to worry about in-app purchases, random pop-ups, or making sure what she was playing was suitable for her.
KidloLand is a learning app for toddlers and preschoolers. The app offers a variety of stories, songs and activities that are developmentally appropriate for young children. I have been pleased with the selection of activities and I think my toddler has just as much fun scrolling the menu as she does doing the activities.
In addition to the games and stories, KidloLand allows you to create a playlist of 25 songs selected from the app, a great way to introduce music, learning songs and classic nursery rhymes to young children. We enjoy having these play as we go about our day!
The animation and illustration within the app is well done and appealing. The games focus on daily activities, learning shapes, colors, letters, phonics, etc. My daughter (3) has shown an interest in wanting to read, so I love the games and activities that focus on phonics. The songs and nursery rhymes are also interactive – kids can read along or touch different objects and characters on the screen to make them move.
While the full version of the app was given to me on a trial/review period, I will say I see the benefit of purchasing a quality learning app for my child. No worries of accidental in-app purchases, no ads, and seemingly endless stories, songs, and activities for her to explore! I never had to worry about what G was playing with this app. It was ad-free and settings couldn’t be changed unless you correctly solved a math problem.
