My Little Place gives toddlers and preschoolers their own little place on their devices. Designed to look like the main screen on an iPad, kids can select from their favorite “apps”, customize the background, and have a lot of fun playing around. The app features 8 fun games, a musical keyboard, and a fun drawing/sticker canvas for kids to enjoy. All of the games are simple, but they’re super fun for toddlers and preschoolers.
- Customizable background
- Customizable sounds
- Fun games for kids
- Keyboard to play songs
- Blank canvas for creating art
The app is designed to remind kids of an iPad. The main screen features a large button the mimics the home button. Tapping it takes kids to their own screen with simple apps they can play. There’s also a preferences screen where kids can select the background image and music. Kids can easily navigate within the app and move from game to game. There is a slight lag when switching between games, but it should not keep kids from enjoying the app. Kids can also access the app in four different languages.
While the focus of the app is more on entertainment than education, it does offer a few educational games. Kids can match rubber duckies as they swim by, count fish, and sort shapes into the proper holes. These games are perfect for toddlers and young preschoolers. All of the games contain nonverbal instructions, which are ideal for this age.
Kids will find plenty of ways to entertain themselves within this app. They can spend hours dialing numbers on a telephone, popping bubbles, and driving the happy train. The app also features a musical keyboard with 8 different sounds and a blank canvas that kids can use for stickers and painting.
The app is priced comparably to other kids apps. The design of the app also adds to its value as it offers many different activities to keep young kids entertained.
The main screen contains a protected parent area and a protected “rate us” icon. The parental lock could be a bit stronger, as many kids will figure it out on their own, but it’s still enough to prevent most kids from accessing the content intended for grown-ups.
