Thumbs Up Thursday - Toddler iPad Apps

I've had a few people ask about the apps I have on our iPad for the Girl since Harps is allowed to play on the iPad while I'm nursing. I did quite a bit of research to make sure I wasn't just having her zone out to mind poop so here's the ones that get a Thumbs Up from both Harper and me.  I made the girl her own page so that she could easily swipe over to her page and get on any of her apps in one place.

Starfall ABC's - This app let's the child pick a letter and then goes through upper and lower case, words that start with that letter and has interactive games to learn the letters. 

Curious Zoo - Curious George is at the zoo.  The child can select different animals to help out with 
and each animal has an educational video that teaches about it.

eFlash English - For toddler's learning words, this has categories like food, transportation, letters, colors and numbers. The items are shown alphabetically, said allowed and a picture is shown.

Potty Time with Elmo - Yes, we are about to enter into potty training so this app is the book but also has puzzles and songs about potty time.  A warning, the songs will get stuck in your head!
First Words Sampler - FW Sampler is a spelling app that let's the child drag the appropriate letters to spell a word.  

 I Hear Ewe - Sounds and pictures of animals and transportation.
Interactive Alphabet - Another app that focuses on letters, words that begin with those letters and interactive screens.

The Little Engine That Could - The classic book as an interactive app.

Loopseque Kids - Works with beats and music where the child can design their own sounds.

The Monster At The End of This Book - Another classic children's book as an app.

My Very First App - Eric Carle's artwork becomes a memory game.  The app has an easy, medium and hard level.

Peek-A-Zoo - Animals and sounds, this app is one of the more visually appealing.

Teach Me Toddler - An app that focuses on letters, colors, numbers and shapes.  This is one of the most educational in my opinion.  It also has a rewards chart and tracks your child's learning.

Please share if you've found some that are successful too!

My kids like the Super Why app and Monkey Preschool Lunchbox. Shapebuilder is an easy puzzle one for them too. I am going to download some of your suggestions!
