We are gearing up for another travel adventure, this time to Disney World! We will be taking off at the end of this month with my husband’s side of the family for a week long vay-cay. This will be E’s second trip that includes flying. Even though I’m not as nervous as I was the first time, I’ve already begun planning what we will bring on the plane to make the journey as smooth as possible. Although, does anything ever go smoothly with a one-year-old? Some days I feel like we are on a continuously bumpy ride!
I am going to share a detailed list next week, but one thing I am excited to have in my arsenal, this time, is a new children’s app. E and I recently had the opportunity to try a new app called KidloLand. The KidloLand app is fabulous and loaded with more than 300+ songs and educational activities that keep even my one-year-old entertained. It’s so convenient to have on my phone because it’s always with me. Whenever we are out and she is getting antsy, I can pull this out and she just loves it. She even hums along with the songs and that just melts my heart! You can see a video at the end of this post of her humming along while we were listening to lullabies on our recent camping trip!
There are different areas in the app including nursery rhymes, songs about letters, numbers, fruits and vegetables, colors, shapes, and even phonics. There are so many other categories as well, sixteen in total. It is a great learning tool to get children familiar with these topics. There is so much to explore it could keep a toddler busy for at least the time it took to cook dinner 😉
All of the songs are interactive and E loves touching the screen to see what happens. There are puzzles and activities that are a little advanced for young toddlers but would be great for additional interaction for older kids. Since she is younger, she needs my help navigating the app, but it is very kid friendly. Even with all her touching she can’t exit the app easily or click on things that stop the music. That is a must for me when choosing an app for her.
There is free content on the app as well, but having a subscription gives you access to so much more! It’s nice to have all of the songs and games to choose from. I have noticed in some sections like the letter songs, they will automatically play the next one, which I love. Others, like the nursery rhymes, just stop when the song is over and give you a re-play/menu screen, which isn’t the best for a little one. There is a neat feature that you can add 25 of your children’s favorite songs to a playlist and it will continuously play. Overall, this really is a great app and has already saved the day many times. I’m sure it will come in handy on our long flight!
Disclosure: I did receive a complimentary subscription to KidloLand to review, all opinions are 100% my own. I promise I wouldn’t share anything I don’t feel is worth sharing!
