My Daughters Favorite Song in a New App

Recently, I signed up to win an app for my kids. I love my iPhone, and I love apps, and I love anything that will keep the kiddos busy. But I’m picky…

In order to qualify to be an app that I will put on my phone, it must be educational. So far the apps I have are the following:

BumbleBee TouchBook (it’s okay, but doesn’t do much and the novelty has worn off.)

Preschool Adventure (A ton to do and the Bug just loves it!)

I See Ewe (Great for kids 4 and under. The Bug is getting bored with it though.)

Tozzle (Awesome puzzle games. The Bug has sat for long periods playing it.)

Toddler Teasers (Shape, color, letter recognition game. The Bug is bored with it.)

Monkey Preschool Lunchbox (The Bug still loves this one. I think she likes the monkey.)

Dora (The Bug loves Dora. But she’s bored with the game. It doesn’t do much.)

AniMatch (The Bug loves loves loves the matching game. She’s so good at it.)

Word World (The Bug thought the game would be cool, but it doesn’t challenge her that much.)

Digi Drummer Lite (This is a drum machine app I added for Super Dude. With it he can make his own beats, record them, play them back, and even play them while listening to the iPod app. And as we know, Super Dude loves him some drums!)

MiniPiano (Super Dude plays this every once in a while.)

DoodleJump (Now before you say “Hey wait! That’s not educational!” think about this; It requires problem solving and hand/eye coordination. These are important skills to have.)

Angry Birds (Well this was actually for me, but for some reason Super Dude wants to play it all the time. Again, it requires hand/eye coordination and heavy duty problem solving skills.)

So, guess what?!?! I won the new app for the kids!


I (well, we really) won Kiboomu’s Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Preschool Storybook Piano.

4 ways to play!

I think this might just be Super Dude’s favorite new app. Once I showed him that the keyboard was lighting up to show him how to play the song, he got very interested.

And of course, the Bug loves it because that happens to be her favorite song.

Thanks to the folks at for the free app! The kids are having fun with it and learning how to play the notes to make the song. Yay!
