KidloLand App – Appsolutely Brilliant!

Sophie is just six months old and if you are following me on Instagram, then you will know that she is just about to make her bid for world domination. Everything is fresh, new and just within reach (or so she likes to think!) As a busy blogger, I can often be found on my iPhone; tweeting, sharing, liking and all that jazz. I thought it didn’t really matter and that Sophie was far too young to notice if I fed her a bottle with one hand and scrolled through Twitter notifications with the other. Sadly, those days are at an end as she is making a grab for my phone / ipad / keyboard at every available opportunity. I’m not someone who is against kids using technology or watching the TV so if she is showing an interest then that’s fine by me. However, without putting Peppa Pig on repeat it’s hard to find anything really suitable or interactive enough for babies her age. I don’t want to just put her in front of a screen either, I’d much prefer her experience with technology to be interactive and something we can do together. Fortunately, the lovely people over at KidloLand got in touch with me a few weeks back and offered me the chance to review the award winning KidloLand App.

To begin with I was a bit dubious if I’m honest. I didn’t think apps were age appropriate for such a young child but I couldn’t have been more wrong. The app is designed for children under the age of five and in my opinion it is particularly suited for toddlers. Little one’s can learn their ABCs, animals, fruits, vegetables, shapes and more with the help of 300+ interactive nursery rhymes, songs and educational activities.

Nursery Rhymes

Mary

Phonics

However, for a baby of Sophie’s age, the interactive sing-a-long nursery rhymes are a real treat. I sing along with the app to all of the traditional nursery rhymes whilst she bats at the colourful animated video that goes along with each song. I think we both love the bright and clear graphics – it has a really happy, upbeat feel to it. One of the really clever features here is that when Sophie accidentally touches the screen, the app either does nothing or reacts by moving one of the little characters. To come out of the app you have to quite firmly and deliberately touch the home button, which of course she can’t. I really liked this feature as it means I can let Sophie bat away at the screen to her hearts content.

KidloLand App

I’m a firm believer in encouraging babies to learn their colours, shapes, numbers etc from a young age so I think that it won’t be long before Sophie will be enjoying all aspects of this app. Like any parent, I am delighted by anything that my baby is delighted by. Sophie gets so excited when the lively theme tune starts up and she can bat at the screen along with the songs. I know I am biased but it really is so cute. The lovely thing about the KidloLand app is that it will grow along with Sophie so basically it’s the app that keeps on giving and I love that!

If you would like to try the app for yourself then you can download it from the following places:

    Great review Fi – I was dubious about this one too as Emma is only 14 months and we don’t use apps at all…I might give this a try 🙂 Love your pics! xx #triballove #bloggerclubuk

    Oh I might give this a try too – totally agree that tech is ok so long as they are interacting and doing something , rather than just staring at Peppa Pig ! (Which happens a lot!) #fortheloveofblog

    Wow this sounds like a great app! Evie is a bit too old for this but I agree it’s important to help them learn when they’re young and we have a lot of ways to do that now! #fortheloveofblog

    I’ve seen this before and discounted because my little man isn’t in to it. I like the touch home feature that’s cunning! Thanks for hosting #fortheloveofBLOG

    My eldest is always trying to make a grab for all of my technology! I think this app is great to keep her entertained whilst she is doing so!

    Great for little ones, I would of been a bit dubious at first for ones so young but the review was good enough to convince me that it’s got its place along with other things in the daytime routine:)

    My daughter is 13 months old. She loves our phones! She practically has conversations with Siri! I do not have any apps for her yet. I really don’t know where to begin with toddler apps so this was a great read. Thanks for the review!

    I would have been dubious too, but it’s good to have a thorough review to help mums make an informed choice. Thanks for sharing and hosting. #FortheloveofBlog

    Love your review. We reviewed this app as well baby girl is 5 months old and I was a bit anxious at first whether it’s too old for her, but she loves nursery rhymes and that section is great for her!

    Good to hear the apps being enjoyed 🙂

    Looks like a great app, especially with the wealth of apps out there for little ones these days. Anything that is educational is going to definitely be something to consider. Great review 🙂 Emily #fortheloveofBLOG

    My two-year-old loves the iPad but usually goes straight to YouTube and finds Peppa. It’s scary how well she manages it! She could probably use something a bit more interactive! #fortheloveofBLOG
