A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Toddlers can learn to match shapes and colors, practice counting to ten, as well as work on logic, observation, and fine motor skills. In one game, toddlers feed a bug a piece of fruit (from two options) that matches one shown above its head. The fruit includes colors and shapes that must match, so kids must observe and compare similarities and differences. Most games are appropriately short in length for toddler attention spans. Jellytoons Toddler Skills is bite-size learning fun for the youngest app users.
Ease of Play
Voice prompts, sound effects, and a simple icon pointer guide toddlers through each step of choosing and playing the games.
Products & Purchases
Tap on "more stuff" and the app takes you to a list of apps by the developer and links to the App Store. The first time the app is opened in the iPad version, a promotional screen appears.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Jellytoons Toddler Skills: Bobo's Birthday Challenge is a bright and happy learning app for toddlers. Based on a birthday party theme, the six basic skills games are easy to play. Look under the color-coded party hats to find a hiding character, or send ice cream scoops down a shoot as you count how many scoops the partygoer requested. With cheerful voice-over instructions and a pointer icon clearly telling and showing kids what to do next, it's easy to move from game to game. Parents can track their child's progress on the various skills.
Is It Any Good?
In JELLYTOONS TODDLER SKILLS: BOBO'S BIRTHDAY CHALLENGE, the bright, bold colors and jolly characters will charm your toddler or preschooler into playing these six simple games that teach colors, shapes, numbers, and more. No game here is multi-step or so detailed as to lose the attention of even the wiggliest toddlers. The progress chart for parents is simple to read and helps identify where your child may need more off-screen help learning a skill.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
