10 Favorite iPad Apps For Toddlers and Young Children

By
Home Stager with Sharon Tara Transformations

If you are a parent or grandparent of small children looking for iPad apps, I have a few favorites to share with you.

Several years ago I collected iPad apps for my first grandson, Jack. Some were hits and some were misses. 

Apps for kids can be expensive and nobody wants to throw their money away on something that disappoints. Free apps can be very disappointing...poor quality graphics and numerous pop-ups and ads.

Having to constantly click an "X" to close a window that's trying to sell you something is confusing and very frustrating for children and gets old fast for the parent who has to keep telling the child "no" to an additional expense. 

The apps listed below are all proven winners...favorites with my grandbabies. 

Each one is educational, entertaining, and holds a child's attention.

My grandbabies started using these apps at about 18 months old and continue to enjoy them at age 6, 7 and 8.

Some of these apps are actually FREE!

These are good, I might have to download them for my youngest nephew, but then of course the niece and other nephews will want to download their games too, haha.

Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS 602-380-4886  It's amazing how fast they learn how to use it. 

John Pusa  You are welcome! They are all really good apps!

Kathy Streib  Awesome! I hope they find the post helpful.

Brian England  You may want to reconsider. If they are not already using your iPad, you may not want to start. Once they know you have one, it's the first and only thing they will want when they visit.

Good morning Sharon Tara,

Sounds like you have provided us with winners! Our grand-kids play some on an ipad but they play a lot of sports so their time is limited..I'm sending these to my son to see if they have any of them.

Kathy Streib  So glad the App Queen approves. LOL

Barbara Todaro  I'm sure your grandson will appreciate it. LOL

Dorie Dillard CRS GRI ABR  They may already have them. Many of these are very popular.

Jeff Dowler, CRS  It is so amazing watching them and seeing how fast they pick up on the technology. The hard part is keeping them from becoming addicted!

Lise Howe Always a good idea to limit their time. It's fun to have new options though.

Good morning Sharon - I am always amazed when I see these young children working these games.  That is why this youngest generation is called digital natives.
