QUALITY
 

BABY'S MUSICAL HANDS is a wonderful first app for toddlers who are developing hand-eye coordination and learning about cause and effect. There are no buttons, distracting menus, instructions, or commercial tie-ins -- kids simply tap anywhere on the screen to receive instant audio and visual feedback. As kids get more coordinated they can press specific colored squares to hear different sounds, too.
