iPhone apps for kids


Monkey PreSchool Lunchbox
Pre-schoolers work through puzzles and learning games with the assistance of an adorable monkey tutor! Understanding of colours, letters, numbers, and more grows each time they play, and parents rave that the game is not only fun but easy for children to navigate with little assistance.


Plants Vs Zombies
OK, so we’ve spared the educational value here. This one 
is pure fun. With a team of about 
50 various living plants on your side, do battle with a couple of dozen types of zombie just itching for a fight through many possible levels. Ridiculous? Absolutely! Fun? Definitely. Some slightly mature cartoon content makes this one suitable for children nine and older.


Great for children aged 3-6, the 
cast of the wildly popular PBS KIDS series presents a wide array of educational games focused on spelling, writing, and rhyming. 
The main title character is joined 
by superhero friends to help your youngster on his journey to super smarts!


Cyberchase Math Match
PBS Kids gets a second nod here 
as we move to an app for children a little older (6-12). Cyberchase deals in discrete, or finite, mathematics. The game is played by matching equations with the correct answer, each of which is printed on a tile within a matching game. Choosing the correct tiles reveals Cyberchase characters. It’s maths, puzzles, and matching all in one!


We didn’t forget about vocabulary. Wurdle is great fun, essentially a quiet game of Boggle (no rattling of the constantly shaking letter cubes). Trace the words with your fingertips by sliding over them in order to select your word. Easy to use and follow, multiple levels – word grids from 4x4 to 8x8 – make it suitable for kids of all ages, and grownups, too.
