Free Educational, Fun, and Entertaining iPad Apps For Toddlers

Isn’t it amazing how quickly toddlers take to our gadgets? They’re naturals, especially with the iPad. Give them a few minutes to get them started and they’re off and running.

With all of the many thousands of apps available, there is something for everyone, at every age, and almost every need. To help your little ones started with some excellent app choices, I’ve put together a list of 5 educational apps, 5 that are more fun and games, and 5 apps that are just pure entertainment.

Best of all they are all free. And some of them you might enjoy yourself!

To start, you must check out our very own Garanimals app, Learn, Play, Share. We put a lot of love into creating this one, so please enjoy.

Educational Apps

  • Memory! - Classic memory game with vivid colors and 3 levels of difficulty.
  • Little Stars – Earn stickers and points for correctly answering the recorded questions by choosing the right picture.
  • Amazing Shape Puzzle – This app is full of puzzles that have sound effects and word learning features.
  • Mini Adventures – Let’s Go and Learn the Alphabet – Children learn letter and word recognition using high quality photos and videos.
  • Phone for Kids – An fun activity center that lets your child explore keypads for phones, texting and typing, as well as colors and seasons.

Fun and Games

  • Squiggles! – Draw squiggly lines and watch the characters move. Make your own pictures and watch them animate. Fun.
  • Magic Fingers Lite – A wonderful app that lets you make gorgeous moving patterns set to music. It’s mesmerizing.
  • Kids Doodle – Movie Your Drawings – Create a drawing with a variety of brush styles and watch the app play back its creation.
  • I Hear Ewe – Touch the animal or vehicle and hear the sound they make.
  • Bubble Popper – Pop the colored bubbles with your fingers and score points. This one is addictive.

Silly and Simple Pleasures

  • Talking Tom 2 – Let the talking cat repeat what you say in a silly voice.
  • Bubble Popper – Not the same as Bubble Popper game above. This one is virtual bubble wrap. Enough said.
  • Fireworks Toy – Touch the screen with your finger and watch the fireworks. Touch with multiple fingers and light up the sky.
  • Heatpad Lite – Run your fingers over your display and see the heat paths.
  • Falling Stars – I love this app. Draw vines to catch the falling stars and make beautiful music.

I’m pretty sure your toddlers will enjoy these. I hope you do too.
