I got an email from a nice mom the other day, with this message:
My husband and my daughters - ages 6 and 8 - have been working together to create some apps. One of them, MixUp DressUp, gives even the most uncoordinated of hands the opportunity to create an elegant and fun dress-up creation with just a swipe of their fingers. The app also provides an easy way for kids to record their own fashion-forward comments about the outfits they create. MixUp DressUp is a collaborative project between the app developer and his two daughters, Anna (age 8) and Ava (age 6). The girls designed all of the dresses and added their voices to the app; Pop did the programming and user interface.I adore creativity, and when parents let their kids be involved in the process the outcome is magical.
This cute app is free, but you have the option to buy more collections from Anna & Eva's dress shop.
Apple free app of the week is the wonderful Hair Salon 2 app by TocaBoca, and when it comes to their apps, no need for a long introduction, you just go ahead and download it. I learned that no matter if your kid is 2 or 11 years old, they can both enjoy the app. That is why I like TocaBoca apps, they are very intuitive to toddlers, and at the same time, older kids find them interesting as well. Not to mention this 40 year old blogger..
What is better than your kid singing? Your kid singing and you get a video of this special moment! Singa (what a great name for an app!) is all about having fun and treasure the moments. Just choose the song and sing along - click on the recording button, save videos of the whole family singing, and create great fun memories together.
Last but not least (and the only app that is not free), is the Imaginary Car by the wonderful Pango. First, if you don't yet downloaded Pango's other apps, you are missing on some great adventures. Their apps are the most awesome kids apps in the store today.
The Imaginary Car allows children to build their fantasy car, Choose between fifty different objects: a tractor wheel, a fridge, a truck horn, rocket engines ...Combine them and create the car of your dreams. There is no limit to your imagination. You can also build from existing templates such as a fire truck, helicopter, or a robot submarine.
I personally think this app is genius:
