Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the Tickle Tap Toddler Pack is an award-winning app that offers tremendous value and entertainment for preschoolers. There are five games in the pack -- Sound Shaker (lets players make and jumble a variety of sounds ranging from musical instruments to farm animals); Sort Slider (a shape matching game); Count Caddy (a counting game that builds addition skills); Field Flier (lets players guide a bird around a forest and observe activities such as dancing and swimming); and Pattern Painter (a shape and pattern identification game that lets children learn to make logical assumptions and draw shapes).
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.
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.
