Parents Need to Know

Is it any good?


With a wide variety of games, the Tickle Tap Toddler Pack does an excellent job of maintaining the attention span of young players while teaching them something in the process. None of the five games is a dud, but Sound Shaker and Sort Slider are the standouts. While there's not a lot of educational value in Sound Shaker, it's a fun game that will delight young ones with its silly noises. Sort Slider, meanwhile, teaches as it entertains. While other apps may only interest toddlers for a short while, the diversity of options here will keep them engaged for a long time.
