Characters & Theme Apps

 Character & Theme Apps

If you have children, then there’s no way that the words “Disney,” “Marvel,” and “Nickelodeon,” haven’t fallen out of your mouth or been rung throughout your ears. They hold our kids (and our own) favorite characters, their role models and now, their favorites apps too! From just good clean fun to sharpening some math skills, these top characters apps are top notch too.
Instead of turning the channel on the TV and having them sit in front of it for hours, switch on the tablet and let them immerse themselves in the fun. With these first-hand experiences, they get to be entertained while using their brain – it’s a win-win for both child and parent.
From Disney storybooks to commanding an army to defeat the some of the most evil villains around, there’s something for our preschoolers to enjoy and our teens too! Just make sure to check the age recommendations on each before you hit the download button.
Truly, what’s the next best thing to watching your favorite characters on the big screen? Actually, playing, learning and interacting alongside of them seems like even more of a fun adventure, don’t you think?
