My son is really into my “game phone.” Or, as I call it, my iPhone. It has saved my life during long waits at doctor’s appointments and car rides that ended up longer than I anticipated. Oh, and at restaurants. Basically any time I need a solid 20 minutes of PLEASE PLEASE BE QUIET, I whip out Game Phone. Here are his favorite apps:
Angry Birds: It’s not just for adults. My four-year-old loves it. He also calls it Mad Birds.
Shape Builder: My son plays this non stop. He loves finding out what the shape is once he’s finished.
iKnow Phonics: This seems really boring to me, and yet… my son plays it non stop. Great little learning game.
FirstWords: A simple letter scramble game that teaches spelling and reading.
Giraffe’s Matching Zoo: This is a basic memory game with cute animal icons.
Teddy Bear: We don’t own this one yet, but it’s getting lots of great buzz as being one of the best animated storybook apps.
