The voice of Malika was recorded by a real child from East London England.

A Leaf In My Hair is the latest ebook by Light Sleepers. It’s an animated children’s book that works on both iPhone and iPad. I tried the iPad version of the app and found it to be exactly similar in concept with their previous animated ebook “Look at All The Animals“. A Leaf In My Hair tells a simple and cute story about a hedgehog and a leaf.
Look at All The Animals is a brand new kids app created by April Peter, Daniel Shneor, Karen Kredo, and Nir Hermoni. It’s an animated children’s book that works on both iPhone and iPad. I tried the iPad version and was immediately delighted by the beautiful artwork, and smooth animations. The book tells a simple and cute story about little girl enjoying the small wonders of life.
Backyard at Twilight: A Stella and Sam Adventure is a new kids app by zinc Roe. It’s an animated 10 minute story with three mini games. The story is charming, well animated and beautifully illustrated. I had the chance to test it with my three year old daughter Luna. She was immediately interested and explored the app through and through. She enjoyed the story but was especially fond of the three mini games included.
In this post you’ll find reviews of the best kids apps for iPad. All these apps have been extensively tested by my 3-year-old daughter and myself. Obviously we haven’t tested every single kids app but we have tested many (around 90). I have picked the best apps in terms of usability, ability to hold interest, artwork, music and sounds, and value for money. I also considered educational value but I didn’t emphasize it because my daughter doesn’t understand English which is the language in most apps.
In this post I’ll focus on the best free iPad games. To be more precise I’ll focus on pick up and play kind of games that won’t require you to invest much time in them. At the moment, there are over 8000 games available in the App Store. There are many high quality games with incredibly low price and some that are actually free. In this review, I’ll exclude limited lite versions of games and concentrate on the games that are really free and offer more than just a few levels to test.
