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.
