Baby Hints & Tips

Which apps for kids? Our Mums Tell!

Which apps do you recommend for kids?

  • The abc song app, great to learn letters.  Jes
  • I have some fisher price apps but then I read that you shouldn’t let babies watch ipad/phones/tv till they are two so I dont really use it. But I will keep them for later – counting animals and colours and they are free.  Shelley
  • Phone for kids is a great app, fisher price has some good apps, and we also use the ABC4kids app.  Pam
  • My 10month old loves the Fisher and price apps, the baby animals one is great as they can’t touch any adds or get out of it so quick…period diary pro for ovulation tracker…baby log once bubs is born..wonder weeks… Kat
  • Elmo Calls, Elmo ABC, Wiggles ABC and Bananas Bubbletime. Michelle
  • Macleans Nurdle time! Great app for encouraging kids to brush their teeth and brush them properly 🙂 Tamara
  • My 8yr old loves Hungry Shark and Bejeweled. Apreinia
  • Baby Nursing-great u don’t have to remember which side, when & how long u fed. U can also save all bubs measurements. ABC Phonics. Flash Cards, ilullaby, Balloon Baby School. All fee. And Wonder Weeks $.99 Sharon
  • For kids, the Toca Boca ones are great (kitchen, doctor, train, hair salon) and my son loves Talking Tom/Talking Ginger/Talking Ben etc, the Lego app, the Fireman Sam app and the Play School Art Maker app. Camilla
  • The wonder weeks 🙂 Liz


Anyone have any recommendations for apps (preferably educational) for children over 12 months old? Or even some fun ones for mums & dads?
  • Zoodles is a great one for short video clips. ABC reading eggs has an educational app. ABC art maker is also a good one. If you have an iPad you can get lazoo squiggles &let’s colour. Fun with Words is a spelling game. Peppy Pig has an app and there are heaps of free alphabet apps also that you can get with activities and games on them.  Chantelle
  • Old MacDonalds Farm is good. And iview.   Ros
  • The baby first video channel.  Renee
  • The wheels on the bus. The full version though, it’s $1.99.   Kelly
  • Look baby.  Lisa
  • Reading eggs is awesome, and you can find flash card apps too – together have helped my 2.5 dd to recognise colours, shapes, numbers, letters…Renee
  • Rocket speller and reading raven. Might have too be a little closer to 2.5 but excellent apps.  Olga
  • Phone 4 kids is fantastic! The full version is definitely worth the money, toddler teasers is good and the fisher price ones I used a lot when my son was around 1 and he still uses them now (almost 2).  Candice
  • Fisher Price have heaps of counting, abc, colours, shapes, animal and body part apps with songs etc. my 16m DS loves them! Or u can search animal sounds, there’s heaps of good ones.  Reah
