the best educational apps for toddlers

we asked our fans and friends for their favorite toddler tested, parent approved apps.

I know, I know. I said I would never let my child use a tablet or a phone and he would be raised with the simplicity of an Amish child. In some ways, I succeeded, because his favorite toy is an empty box or a bucket and his own imagination. But there is no denying that sometimes, a mom needs to invoke the power of technology so she can put on her makeup, go to the bathroom alone or get through brunch without a meltdown.

When I do hand my child the all-powerful and mesmerizing iPad, I at least want to make sure he is getting a reasonably educational experience. It’s really hard to tell from a few App Store screen shots, so we asked our fans and friends for their favorite toddler tested, parent approved apps.

+ YouTube Kids

Maybe this is a no-brainer, but I was thrilled to see this. My son is enraptured by videos of: trains driving by, diggers and cranes and anything construction-related, puppies and kittens. YouTube Kids means he can watch a video without fear of what the autoplay function might pull up next…phew!

For iOS and Android

+ Spotify

My favorite place to make running playlists also has a huge selection of classic kids stories in audiobook form and tons of fun kids songs. Long car ride? We listen to Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Sometimes three times in a row, which is still better than listening to a tantrum in the back seat.

For iOS and Android

+ Endless Numbers

My little guy is only two, so he’s not doing the equations this app offers, but it’s helping him identify and quantify numbers (so someday, he will stop counting 1, 2, 6, 6, 1…)

For iOS and Android

+ Daniel Tiger's Grr-ific Feelings

There’s a lot to love about this app, from it’s animated sing-along songs (basically, karaoke for toddlers) to its mini-games that explore emotions. There’s enough here to entertain kids 2 and up.

For iOS and Android

+ Reading Rainbow

Take a look it’s in a book (or an iPad), the reading rainbowwwww. Now this song is stuck in your head, but that’s alright because Levar Burton is back to share his love of reading with our children. Like the show we loved as kids. Fun, funny interactive storybook apps. Witty and imaginative and worth the $3.49.

For iOS and Android.
