Food Themed Apps for Kids

Food themed kid apps are becoming really popular with not only kids but adults as well. Pretending is one of the ways we can connect with our children and using great apps like Ice Cream Parlour or Cookie Doodle is on the rise. No mess to clean up, no food to buy, no sugar to feed your child, all of the reasons why these types of apps are becoming so popular. Whether in the car, at a restaurant or just on the go, with smart phone apps making it easier to have fun without the hassle of breaking out a mess, it’s no wonder why more and more of these types of games are showing up on the market. A few apps that have really been making that pretend time fun and easy is Cookie Doodle, Ice Cream Parlour and Candy Swipe and I would like to review them for you here.

Cookie Doodle is a cute app that allows you to pretend to make cookies by rolling out the dough with a sweet selection of cookie cutters you can use to cut out your cookie shapes. Then you get to decorate your cookies! All the fun with no burnt cookies, a perfect batch every time.

Ice Cream Parlour is super cute app with an easy interface for any age. This app provides a great selection of ice cream and, toppings with all the fun of making the cold treat with none of the melting mess. Just slide your scoop on over to the cone of your choice, choose your toppings, endless fun. There is a great little demo of this app.

Candy Swipe takes a different twist on playing with your food. A lot like a crossword puzzle meets the connect four game. Most age levels will understand how to play. But again it’s about having a fun activity for you and your child to enjoy together and this app delivers a lot of fun.


Kids’ App Review: Monkey Preschool Lunchbox for iPhone, iPad, & Android

It’s hard to compete with “Monkey Preschool Lunch Box”  when it comes to iPhone, iPad, and Android apps for children.

Monkey Preschool Lunchbox by THUP Games

This adorable, animated app includes seven games that teach preschoolers about colors, letters counting, letters, and shapes.  Priced at $1.99 on Android ($0.99 on iPhone), it’s a bit expensive but the kids love it, so the parents love it.

An animated monkey helps you count bananas, identify colors, identify shapes, and pick fruits based on the starting letter.  The colors, sounds,  and required motor skills seem to appeal most strongly to the 2 to 4 year old set.  Slightly older kids may require a game with additional challenges but may still enjoy this delightful app.
