Paint My Wings

When we were little tackers we would spend hours attempting to create the perfect butterfly by smooshing together a folded piece of paper filled with colourful paint and glitter. There is something so fun about colouring and creating butterflies…

Of course, there is nothing quite like the magic of working with real paint, but the situation isn't always fitting for getting out the brushes. So for all those other times we’ve just found the perfect iPad app, Paint My Wings from the clever folk at Tocaboca.

The app features three quirky butterflies with white wings and your little one can choose from an array of colors and brush textures to help fill in the blanks.

Their colouring automatically appears in mirror image on the left and right wings, which both fascinates little minds and helps to teach about symmetry. It’s a hit!

The Bedtime Book

There is nothing worse than battling away trying to get the children down to sleep. And it’s always the worst when their routine has been thrown out of whack by travel, special occasions, new environments etc...

Nighty Night is a cute new app for your iPad or iPhone that creates a little ritual out of bedtime that your little ones will actually enjoy. It involves cute animals, sweet lullabies and some cool narration… the perfect recipe for a good nights sleep.

The most genius part of the interactive story is that it puts the responsibility of getting a bunch of tired farm animals to sleep in the hands of your child. All around the house the lights go out, and in the barn the animals are tired and need help getting tucked into bed for a good nights sleep.

We’re not for putting the kids into bed with the ipad, god no. But this is a great little after bath and dinner wind down treat… so start the slumber wheels in motion. The app has won a bunch of awards and definitely worth checking out.

Nighty Night is available in 12 different languages from the app store.

Call it Feite

We love it when we stumble upon a new app for the kids, particularly when it isn’t filled with pointless characters, furious hyper colours and maddening noises. This is why we couldn’t wait to share our new found favourite with you, Fiete – an interactive picture-book for toddlers...

Picture the soft sound of the ocean and seagulls flying over the horizon. Close by is our little bearded sailor friend called Fiete. With a friendly wave he salutes the children and the adventure begins.

Put the swiss cheese on toast, drop the apples in the basket and load the cargo onto a ship… these are just a few of the delightful tasks young players will face in the game. While it does take a little bit of coordination to master, even a baby as young as one can have fun moving the objects around.

With beautiful illustrations Feite offers a big interactive, adventurous playground with many activities for your little ones to discover. We can’t recommend it enough.

Learn more and download here.

Drawnimal

Drawnimal is a fantastic app for kids, encouraging them to learn the alphabet in a fun and easy way. By drawing around the device, children create interactive creatures that come to life on screen...

“The idea was born while my daughter and I played with an alphabet book. This book showed us how to build an origami-animal out of a paper letter. I wanted to bring a similar analog and funny learning experience to our daily digital devices.”

So get doodling and watch the magic happen.
