Picky Kid Rating: 3.7 Maya the Bee – Flower Party is a richly illustrated app with six learning activities that appeal to toddlers and preschoolers.

Review: Loopy Lost His Lettuce iPad App

Review of Loopy Lost his Lettuce iPad app

Picky Kid Rating: 2.1 If you’ve been following the Picky Kids for a while, you’ll know we enjoy kids apps that look unique. (We can only handle so many cartoony and primary colored graphics!) Loopy Lost his Lettuce certainly fits that category; the crocheted artwork and the promise of an interactive story were what drew […]

Picky Kid Rating: 4.2 Sharing with Duckie Deck is a wonderfully illustrated app loosely focused on teaching kids the importance of sharing.

Review: Dino Park Math iPad App

Dino Park Math iPad app - Picky Kid Rating 2.5/5

Picky Kid Rating: 2.5 In Dino Park Math, kids can help a young paleontologist open a new dinosaur exhibit by solving math problems. It’s a conceptual stretch, but it just might motivate elementary school aged dinophiles (is that a word?) to practice addition and subtraction. The math problems are too difficult for pre-K kids, but […]

Review: Little Genius iPad App

Little Genius iPad app: Picky Kid Rating: 3.3/5

Picky Kid Rating: 3.3 Little Genius combines four pre-school friendly activities in a game that gets progressively harder. Kids must complete each activity in a level before they can move on. This style of progressive play makes the app different than a lot of other kids apps that offer similar activities… and can prove frustrating […]

Review: Memollow iPad App

Memollow iPad app - Picky Kid Rating: 4.4/5

Picky Kid Rating: 4.4 Memollow is an adorable concentration-style memory game. Conceptually, it’s super-simple (flip pillows in ten different memory games to find matches), but what you’re giving up in features, you’re gaining in execution, because this app is extremely well done! It’s also FREE (that’s a limited-time offer though).

Identikat iPad App - Picky Kid Rating 3.8/5

Picky Kid Rating: 3.8 If you’ve been following the Picky Kids for a bit, you’ll know we like to find apps that stand out from the crowd. Identikat definitely falls into that category, visually at least. This is a beautiful creativity and memory-development game/activity with a rich textural look and feel. Solve puzzles and create […]

Review: Eric Carle’s My Very First App iPhone App

Eric Carle's My Very First App thumbnail

Picky Kid Rating: 2.7 Plenty of parents and children alike are fond of Eric Carle’s illustrations, known from classic books such as The Very Hungry Caterpillar and The Mixed Up Chameleon. And frankly, without such interesting artwork, we wouldn’t recommend (un-creatively named) Eric Carle’s My Very First App.
