  • Hi, there are lots of great educational apps for kids.

    Mini Prep is a great app to learn the Alphabet, numbers 1-10 and colours. It’s an Australian built app with Australian Voice overs.

    Ibbleobble has an app called ‘Words with Ibbleobble’ – great app to learn words.

    Rocket Speller Plus by Little Big Thinkers is also another great one to check out.

  • No, I can’t help you and I gave to say I’m not sure I agree with all this techno bizzo for young children


  • Monkey preschool lunchbox is a great app for younger kids. :) some of them are free and some bought. :)


  • most i have downloaded haven’t been any good


  • There are so many available and I really must download some more too!


  • We┬┤ve used 123 ELEVATOR to introduce our 1-4 year children the basic numerals and counting. The elevator number panel user interface is fun and there are lots of cute animal characters and puzzles waiting in hiding in 10-floors. Great app. I recommend. Besides it is free to download: https://itunes.apple.com/app/id857766228


  • i have duck duck moose and its great


  • reading eggs, its really good and i believe the kids enjoy it as well :D


  • Another good app for spelling is Spellosaur. You can enter words off the kids weekly spelling from school and it uses them in games etc to learn the word. My 7 y/o finds it a great way to learn.


  • The apps by Duck Duck Moose are fantastic. My two love them. If you want something with an Australian accent try the alphabet and number apps by Oscar’s apps.


  • I don’t know any sorry but loving the responses and will be having a look at the ones others have mentioned. My 3yr old loves playing on Mummy’s phone so thank you for asking as now i have some i can download for him :)


  • have you tried number bus and alphabet bus?


  • Reading eggs is great and fun for the kids.


  • There is an ABC one I downloaded, it’s great has a lot of games and songs


  • The 2 that my 3 yrold son plays the most are ,”Hungry Fish” it’s a maths game that is probably a little old for him, but he loves it, so we help, by telling what numbers to add together. The other is one called “Agnitus” it’s great it has memory games, maths, shapes, as they do each game it moves to the next one, kinda like levels, we have only downloaded the free versions I know you can pay to get more content, but there is enough for him at 3 in the free version.
