Recently I have been working with my friends over at KidloLand. They were so kind to let Bennett try out their app and I wanted to share my thoughts with you all!! I hope you check them out!
KidloLand – A Review.
Bennett has been interested in my phone/iPad from day one. As a parent in 2016 I knew technology would be a part of our lives so I downloaded a few free apps but I found they were limited and not providing me with useful learning tools for B. So I was thrilled to try out KidloLand when they reached out! It has everything from the classic nursery rhymes, to songs about fruits and veggies, to interactive games once B is a bit older.
We have been using the app for a few weeks now and here is what I love about it.
- Word Display. Every song also displays the words being sung. This is something that many apps lack and I think is super important for learning. It will also be a great tool as B begins talking and reading.
- Variety! As I mentioned before there are nursery rhymes, songs about fruits, veggies, and also vehicles, the alphabet, colors and shapes, numbers and even Christmas songs! The variety is fantastic and makes listening as an adult very tolerable! And there is no need for a bunch of different apps, this one actually has everything!
- Interactive. Right now B does a mixture of watching the app, chewing my phone and tapping at the screen. However all of the songs have interactive parts so even a 7 month old can press the screen and have the characters interact back. Once he is older there are plenty of games to keep him occupied and for him to learn from.
- Educational. Every part of this app has been thought out, as I mentioned before words are displayed to help a child learn as they listen. The songs and games are all focused on learning and are not just noises and visuals which I have found many other apps are.
The KidloLand app has 24 free songs and with a yearly subscription ($39.99 US) you can access all of the songs and games. There are 240+ interactive songs and 100+ educational games. The app also recently won the Spring 2016 Academics’ Choice Smart Media Award. Overall I think this is a great tool for B. I am a strong believer in traditional toys and playing outdoors, but I think introducing KidloLand as educational technology is great! B and I have already had lots of fun playing with this app and the way he gets excited for the opening jingle is amazing.
