10 Favorite iPad Apps For Toddlers and Young Children

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Capital Properties DC AB15253

TIme to dust off the iPad to entertain those restless toddlers and youngsters.  I came up to New York last night to see my son and grandsons for a night. I haven’t seen the grandsons since January so I am long overdue for some real time with them. My older grandson is in love with rockets and space-x.  My younger one is 18 months and just loves going full tilt. Have a great weekend, stay safe. 

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!

Hi Lise... our youngest grand is 21 and our great-grand isn't due till November... so I think I can "forget" about these. By the time our great-grandwhatever is old enough, I expect the apps will all be different. :)

Great choice for a reblog, I always love the posts from Sharon Tara.  I am also a big fan of Space X and for that matter anything that Elon Musk is involved in.

Wow...this was a surprise!

We are on grand #5 now using these apps on my iPad. Still the same games and he loves them as much as the others did.
