#10 “Family Matters provides topics for your family to discuss in a variety of situations from at the dinner table, waiting in line, at a resturant, at an airport and in the doctor’s office. This app was designed because the owner was looking for a project to do with his family. Part of the proceeds from this app are donated to a family-oriented charity based on a suggestion from his children.” [Full review]

Riley and the Magical Laundry Basket by Monkey Prism

Riley’s mission is to get to the Cupcake Palace to see the Cupcake Queen and along the way she meets some fun and interesting characters such as Jojo the helpful monkey, the beautiful magical fairy, the little candy men, the dancing dinosaurs and more (unicorns!).” [Full review]

The Monster at the end of this Book by Callaway Digital Arts

#6 “The main character in this story, loveable furry old Grover comes to life through animations and activities throughout the book. I really liked that the reader could personalize their name on the bookplate. Grover acts out the various scenes in the book which include: tying the pages together, building a wooden wall and finally building a brick wall. It was easy to figure out what you were supposed to do on each page, because a yellow circle appeared with each task, something that is very good for young readers.” [Full review]

Serving Sizer Recipe Cards by Creative Algorithms

#5 “This app allows you to copy your recipes into a database where they are all easy to find and re-size as necessary. Once you have entered the recipe, you can change the serving size and the entire recipe is converted to the number of people you need to serve. I used this app on Thanksgiving and found it was very useful in sizing recipes down for my family, plus taking photos of the various creations was wonderful so I can pull up a recipe card and see what it is that I made via a photo.” [Full review]

Toca Kitchen by Toca Boca

#4 “Toca Kitchen eatures the opportunity for children to choose a variety of foods to feed to the four characters who range from a boy and a girl to a cat and a cow. A variety of foods including: vegtables, meat, fish and fruit are available in the refrigerator waiting to be chosen by the child.

No Dogs Allowed by Tizio Publishing

#2 “The “No Dog” is a mythical creature that can only be seen by children. You can’t say his name out loud – “he’ll hide if he hears it and just fade away”. The No Dog is a cute ball of fluff with big floppy ears, six legs, two tails and wings. The No Dog is “cuddly, and furry and bright. His job is to love kids and protect you at night.” [Full review]

Preschool Edukitty by Cubic Frog – Review

Reviewed by Alison

20111216-115516.jpgPreschool Edukitty by Cubic Frog Apps is a universal app which provides hours of fun teaching children a variety of games from matching patterns and sounds to colors, shapes, numbers, big and small sizes, as well as the alphabet guided by the cute kitty. There are three different skill levels that a parent can choose as well as a reward system which includes a visual reward of the kitty sliding down a slide and stamps. Cubic Frog Apps is a branch of Cubic Frog based in Las Vegas, Nevada which provides a variety of creative services including 3D modeling and graphic design.

I really liked the colors and illustrations in the app especially the 3D effects as they made it fun to play with. Our favorite game was the find the difference game which helped you find big versus little. The matching socks game was a hit as well and we have translated this to real life by looking at the socks in the sock drawer and matching them up. The stamps were a great reward system as well as the cat going down the slide for each correct answer. It was helpful to be able to set the settings for the games to an easier one as well as not showing certain games if they were beyond your child’s skill level. Once the child can master it, you knew that they understood all the concepts before moving on to the next level of the app.

I do wish that you could shut off the cat saying “Yay” or “Whee” as it went down the slide since we hear this multiple times during the game. It would also be nice to set up profiles for children so that if you had kids of varying ages that they could each play based on their own ability levels.

If you are looking for a fun, educational app for your preschooler which combines beautiful graphics as well as the ability to customize based on your child’s skill levels this will be a great app for your family. A video demo of the app provides a good visual overview. Priced at $2.99 in the United States app store, this would be a great addition to your idevice.
