A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Educational Value

Kids can learn and listen to a long list of classic songs and nursery rhymes. They can also practice sorting and other cognitive skills with games that require kids to recognize and match shape or color or to complete puzzles. With a large collection of activities, songs, and stories, kids can get some very basic practice with a variety of early learning and early literacy topics.

Ease of Play

Nothing's complicated about navigating the menus and games, though sometimes the app's reaction time can be slow.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff
Language
Consumerism

There's only limited content available with the free download, and there's much encouragement to pay for a subscription.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that KidloLand: Nursery Rhymes, Kids Games & Baby Songs is a subscription-based collection of short songs, activities, and stories designed for young kids. There's a lot of content in this app, and it covers a wide range of material appropriate for toddlers. Much of the learning material is presented in the form of sing-along songs. Once kids get started with a group of activities, they just keep coming. Parents may want to monitor play and set clear limits on a stopping point. If you download content, kids can access it without a Wi-Fi connection, but it will start to eat up the memory on your device. There's some content available with the free download, and a seven-day free trial will unlock everything for a limited amount of time. Read the developer's privacy policy for details on how your information is collected and shared.

What's it about?

Through a subscription, KIDLOLAND: NURSERY RHYMES, KIDS GAMES & BABY SONGS offers a large database of activities, songs, and stories that center on topics of interest for toddlers and young preschoolers. There are many topics (such as animals, trucks, letters, and numbers), but songs are the most frequent type of delivery (songs about animals). All songs are accompanied by "read-along" text, some of which has some minor interactive elements. In settings, parents can create playlists of song favorites. Games address preschool learning themes such as color, sorting, puzzles, and more.

Is it any good?

Though the graphics, interactive elements, stories, and songs aren't particularly original or of the highest quality, there's certainly a lot of material to keep the little ones occupied. Everything focuses on exactly what toddlers and young preschoolers like best: animals, vehicles, letters, numbers, songs, rhymes, and lots of opportunities to tap the screen. Once content is downloaded, it's also easy to turn off the Wi-Fi and let kids freely explore without worrying about them running across ads or inappropriate content or tapping out of the app and into a web browser by accident. For these reasons, KidloLand: Nursery Rhymes, Kids Games & Baby Songs may be a good option for parents looking to entertain their kids with safe, kid-friendly material. However, the subscription price isn't cheap, and most of what the app offers lacks inspiration and complexity. Overall, the quality of this app's content doesn't quite live up to its price tag.
