I have been looking for something nice and simple for a long time for my toddler to use on the ipad. Finally I found Shape Up! by busythings which he adores. All he has to do is trace shapes on the screen to make characters come to life. The Nosy Crow fairy tales are also fabulous for toddlers. I have found there are so may dull apps out there for very young children. Can anyone recommend any other apps for this age group?

The Niles Snappington app looks good I've seen played around on a free download version for android, my little boy is looking forward to the full version coming out. Lovely art work and sound!
Not sure about the Nosy crow apps that are out at the minute, found the animation a bit creepy and the games didn't seem to tie in with the story. I have enjoyed reading through the Dr. Seuss range with my kids.

The Animals of Mossy Forest, Nighty Night and Little Fox Music Box. All lovely, well crafted apps: Hand illustrated, nicely animated and good music (and not chintzy). Our daughter is three now and I think the first two mentioned above were the best when she was a little younger. Little Fox is probably better for three and above....to get the most out of it anyway.

Hi You all must try out hip hop hen's apps - available on app store. Really fun and educational. My three year old is obsessed.
Also pip and posy's app is fantastic but not as educational.

I couldn't find anything musical that was fun for all of us to crowd around. My kids love dancing to their own voices...! Thank goodness

'Endless' series is amazing. We have endless numbers, Endless Alphabet and Endless Reader. Fun animation and lots of learning at the same time.
