Lulu in Polynesia, Cars in Sandbox: Construction, School Fonts – Three Top iPhone Apps for Kids

Kids apps area is one of the fastest growing segments in the
App Store. These apps are exciting and interesting and can also educate. They
can get kids to read or learn while some of the apps can get them engage in
stories. Most of the kids apps are inexpensive as their prices range from USD
0.99 to USD 4.99. This article can help you find out the popular kids apps that
are right for your child.

Lulu in Polynesia: This
iPhone app, developed by ZANZIBOOK, is the second volume in the Lulu and Zazou
collection. It helps kids explore Polynesia
with two interesting characters – Luluand her kitten Zazou. This
app has text and voice narration in all the pages and a few pages has
conversations too. Lulu in Polynesia also
has small games to motivate the children to explore more. The font size is
a bit smaller, but one should understand the limitations of the universal apps.
Lulu in Polynesia is compatible with iPhone, iPod
touch, and iPad and requires iOS 4.0 or later. This app is available in English
and French. It costs USD 2.99. Download here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/lulu-in-polynesia/id510098538?mt=8 

Cars in Sandbox: Construction: This is an interactive car game
for children (aged over 2 years) that can enhance their fine motor skills. After
launching Cars in Sandbox, users could see eight different vehicles in the main
screen – dump truck, dumper, tractor,
grader, crawler-mounted excavator, telescopic handler, loader and crane. Kids have to explore these different
types of construction vehicles and their purposes. This app is pretty easy to
use, but still a Help section might be handy. Cars in Sandbox:
Construction is one of the top apps in its category. It is compatible with
iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad and requires iOS 4.2 or later. It costs USD 2.99.

School Fonts: This is an iPhone app that can help kids write
plain and cursive fonts. The main screen of School Fonts features four activity
areas including Words, Numbers, Lower Case and Upper Case. They have three
tracing options – outlines with directional tracing arrow prompts, solid lines
without arrow prompts, and dot representations. The Words section has more than 35
lessons that include writing out family names and finding out missing vowels
from words. This app has a lot of option, but I think the designer could have
presented them all in a bit more pleasing way. School Fonts is compatible
with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad and requires iOS 4.0 or later. It costs
USD 4.99. Download it here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/school-fonts-learn-to-write/id498417058?mt=8 

We are in the beginning of the age of kids apps and we are definitely
going see more in a few months time. These apps are doing a great job by engaging
children in stories using the technologies they already love. If you want to
try a few for your kids, these three apps are my recommendation. These apps are
as visually engaging as they are to the ear and they can bring out the best in
your children, I think.
