3 Essential Toddler Apps

I received a KidloLand to share in an honest review. This post also contains affiliate links. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own. 


Essential Toddler Apps Kidloland, ABCmouse
With a new baby, screen time was inevitable in this house. We try to keep the iPad with my purse so it can be used only in the car, but when I'm home alone with the boys and trying to get Carson settled I sometimes hand it over for a few minutes. Until I can resume playing cars with my little gearhead. We started with simple Fisher Price Laugh and Learn apps when he was younger to get him used to navigating the iPad, and now he can navigate in and out of the apps to find what he's looking for. If your little one hasn't quite grasped the ins and outs of starting a new app--put the iPad on guided access so they can't get out of the app you started. 

1. ABCmouse

As a teacher, I find early letter recognition a crucial part in a child's success when they begin their elementary years. They will go in a step above the rest which will make the transition a lot less stressful for your child. ABCmouse takes your child's age and place them in a "classroom" that is appropriate for their age. This app can be used for your littlest learner all the way up 2nd grade. I love that I don't have to go searching for what my child needs to learn, but instead it progresses when your little one is ready. ABCmouse has collaborated with educational experts to create a program that combines reading, math, art, and music to reach all the different learners. This app is only $7.95 a month and has a wonderful opportunity for one month free to test it out for yourself!

2. Endless Alphabet

This app is seriously amazing--it teaches your youngin' letters, vocabulary, and spelling. They are always adding new words to the app such as: bellow, contagious, and whisper. The little monsters come by and scramble the letters up, and your little one must match where they go. Once they have matched the letters they give the definition of the word with a fun action to go with it. It's a little pricey but I promise it is so worth it!

3. Kidloland

Kidloland subscription

Kidloland is one of the first apps we downloaded on my sons new iPad. It is subscription based but I love how much it offered, including over 300 nursery rhymes and 200 educational activities for your little one with more being added every month. Each game and song can be individually downloaded so that you can use when its not connected to the internet. My son loves listening to the nursery rhymes and they have so many verses to the nursery rhymes I really think they go on for at least 5 minutes for one song. He adores it though and loves to jump around to the different songs. This app is fantastic for my 2 year old and will also be great for my youngest when he starts using the iPad. You can really change what they do based on their needs. This app is subscription based as well and has three different options, 1 month, 6 months (for the price of 5), and a year (for the price of 8 months).

  2. I have never heard of Kidloland yet so I am excited for this giveaway and fingers crossed. You can really tell we live in a different age with technology than when we were kids because my 1 year old grabs for my phones and tablets and already knows the basics of what she is doing on them which is just wild! She likes to play Fisher Price apps on my iPhone and enjoys ABC Mouse on the other kids tablets.

  3. We bought my son a tablet for Christmas. It was inevitable with two kiddos. Otherwise I'd never be able to get my oil changed with two under two. Love the apps you shared. Thanks!!
