If a toddler is going to play with my mobile device, he/she may as well learn from an educational app that goes beyond slicing fruit or how to fling angry birds. After a quick search, I stumbled upon this educational app titled “Kids Animal Train: First Word” from 22learn.
“Kids Animal Train: First Word” is a colorful educational app with simple game play suitable for toddlers. The objective is to fill up an approaching train with the requested items scattered around the area. Each area is themed like farm animals, jungle animals, and areas that focus on the color of the animals. A soothing narration calls out the requested items and the toddler just has to tap & drag the requested item onto the train's cargo bed for some celebratory points. The rounds in “Kids Animal Train: First Word” are short to fit a toddler's attention span to encourage replay or get on to other activities.
“Kids Animal Train: First Word” will teach toddlers to recognize animals and colors while honing their motor skills as they navigate through the interface to get the cargo onto the train. Parents can easily bond and encourage their toddlers by helping them identify the objects on the screen. Older toddlers can learn reading by muting the narration and just reading the list of requested items.
The free version of this educational app includes two areas (a farm animal theme and a colors theme) to let you try “Kids Animal Train: First Word.” If your toddler wants more variety in this educational app, the full version unlocks many more areas and concepts to teach him/her.
So for some quick fun and learning for your toddler, “Kids Animal Train: First Word” will fit the bill nicely.
