Tiniest tots can make tunes simply by tapping.
A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Ease of Play
Nothing could be easier. Kids don't have to get the tempo right. As long as they keep tapping, the song will successfully play all the way through. As they get better they can experiment with technique. For instance, lifting the finger quickly sounds a brief note. Holding the finger down makes the note last longer.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this app is easily played by simply tapping on the phone making it ideal for toddlers who aren't too coordinated. More than 80 tunes will keep you from going too crazy.

Is It Any Good?
Kids too wee for piano or guitar lessons? Tappy Tunes is a great way for them to "play" songs all by themselves. All they have to do is tap anywhere on the screen and notes play perfectly. As they tap, pretty graphics flash onscreen - a moon and stars for a lullaby, for instance. Over 80 childrens' classical and popular songs are included. Alternatively, set to jukebox. Speed up or slow down songs with a slider, or put on endless loop to lull kids to sleep.

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.
