The favorite iPad apps around our house are practically anything from Toca Boca. We have a few, but think that within a month of two we’ll have the full set. Luca loves them! They are fun, educational and advertising free. We can recommend these:
Toca Store – Play store and learn the basics about handling money and basic math.
Toca House – do fun chores in a cute house (hopefully, this will spill over to your real home!)
and the one our almost-four-year-old loves the most – Toca Kitchen Monster! Cook for and feed the monsters and see what they like! (and what happens when they don’t like your cooking!)
