Sago Mini Music Box is a cute app for toddlers that allows children to explore music by changing notes, tempo, and using a variety of images to change the sounds. The easy to use set up requires simple tap and touch technology which is great for little ones as it doesn’t required a ton of instruction to use. For families with toddlers at home who love music, this is a must-have.

Features include:

  • 2 Songs
  • Exploratory play
  • Easy to use


As with the other Sago Mini apps, this Music Box app has wonderful illustrations and bright colors that help to keep children engaged. The two songs (Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star & Row, Row, Row Your Boat) included in this app can be played with a variety of tones, tempos, and sounds by simply tapping and touching the illustrations. The developers have done an incredible job making this app easy to use and fun for kids.


This app is not rated for education.


Sago Mini Music Box is for young music lovers who enjoy exploring a variety of sounds. There are two songs that are included and each has their own theme. Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star has a cat in a hot air balloon, and Row, Row, Row, Your Boat has a dog in a boat and the idea is to tap on various parts of the illustrations to create the next note of the song. The ground, mountains, sky, and water all change the tone of the note and tapping on the hot air balloon or the boat adds a drum beat to the note. This variety of sounds that can be explored makes this app incredibly engaging especially for young children and will likely be enjoyed for hours.


Priced at just under three dollars this app is in line with the other Sago Mini apps, however it might be good to include another song in a future update to add more value. Since it is aimed at young children, it is likely an app that will quickly become a favorite for a long time.

Child Friendliness

Sago Mini Music Box is fun, safe, and easy to use. The tap and touch technology allows young children to easily move through the app to explore each song and the corresponding sounds without any instructions at all. Parents can also rest assured knowing that this app does not include any social media links or in app purchases and the parents area is protected. There is a small advertisement for another Sago Mini app on the main page and once you open it the “get it now” button is protected as well. Overall, this app is great for young children and it’s safe too.
