Review: Kidloland

I received a subscription to the Kidloland app to review with Little Miss (age 2.5) on IOS (we’re using the Ipad Mini 4 for this review)  I have been reviewing this product for about two weeks at the time of this review.  

What Is Kidloland?

 

Kidloland is an award winning app that includes 1000+ nursery rhymes, songs, stories, activities, and games aimed at kids aged 0-5 years old. The app offers a wide variety of learning activities like numbers, letters, matching, colours, music, shapes, puzzles, and so much more to help you make learning fun for your little one. 

Review:  Little Miss & I really enjoyed playing with the Kidloland app. The colours and animations are really vivid, which I really like.  I also like that the settings are not easy to access for little hands (you have to solve a math problem to open them)  so that little ones can’t go in and change the settings on you.The layout of the app is very easy to navigate for both me and my toddler. Once I got it all set up I gave it to my toddler to investigate, she quickly found the nursery rhymes and started to interact with them, squealing happily at each new discovery. I think that the easy to use layout helps foster a sense of independence that children in this age group are craving.The next thing we discovered was the games, Music Balloons was an immediate hit. From there she discovered Letter Tracing – which I really liked! As she traced the letter she’d repeat the letter (with both our and the app’s encouragement) & the shape tracing game. She enjoyed some of the other games as well, like Teeth Brushing, Surprise and the Fruit Puzzles.   

 

I would definitely recommend Kidloland for children her age (and probably higher, tbh my other kids have enjoyed playing with their sister)

Halloween 2016

 

Halloween was fun. The weather stayed gorgeous so we didn’t have to trick or treat in the snow (seriously, we’ve done it some years) This year C went with a friend – yes my 15 year old still trick or treats, no I don’t even care if you think that’s ‘okay’ or not. He enjoys it and his happiness means more to me than some random online people. C dressed up as Gingy (the gingerbread man from Shrek) and had a blast. Mister was The Grim Reaper, Blue was a demon, Lady Girl was a witch and Little Miss was a ghost. We lucked out and found the boys’ costumes at goodwill (in mint condition) and the girls re-used old handmade costumes that we added new colours and accessories to.  They were super cute. This year Little Miss was just over 2, so it was her first year out of the stroller, walking up to houses. She made it over half way before needing to be put in the stroller.  She was absolutely adorable with her little “trick or treeaat” and “thank goo” <3

How was your Halloween?
