    Posted by Admin Dino, June 11, 2012

    Baby sign and Learn: Baby sign language can help you to understand what your baby is thinking before they can talk.
    Review - The free version has the most basic signs with an opportunity for you to purchase more. For a new parent even the free signs should suffice. One thing that I found interesting is the categorization of signs into American, Australian, British, etc., and we thought the babies around the world were all the same :).

    Johnsons Bedtime: Track and log your baby sleep patterns, ask questions to sleep experts, and listen to soothing lullabies and ambient sounds.
    Review - It's developed by one of the better brand names in baby care "Johnson and Johnson". How many times you have wanted to call your pediatrician about baby sleep but held out so as to not disturb him/her. Here is a solution; this app provides expert advice personalized to your baby. A must have for first time parents.

    Peekaboo Barn (Lite): A barn adventure for toddlers and families. Work with the child to learn the names of animals and hear the sounds they make.
    Review - Peekaboo Barn a nice app but is pretty limited (only 3 animals and no sound) in it's free (lite) version. It's a basic interactive app that will teach the kids about barn animals and keep your kids busy for hours. It's especially great for those long drives or long wait times.

    Tozzle (Lite): Toddler's Favorite Puzzle: Set of puzzles which entertains while also educational for your kid. It keeps your toddler entertained as he/she learns to improve shape recognition and motor activity.
    Review - The free version of the app is so nice that you will be compelled to purchase the full version (this is a compliment.. LOL). The free version comes with 4 puzzles with the pro version having 39 puzzles.

    Paint Sparkles Draw: It introduces children to the names of all basic colors while developing their sense of vision and creativity.
    Review - It is a very nice app which introduces the color names each time the color is picked. Beautiful sparkles spread on the screen each time a line is drawn which captures the attention of the kids and excites them to use the coloring app. The free version is full featured with only the limitation on the number of designs available.
