If you are a parent then you will know how it is sometimes difficult to keep a young child occupied while you are trying to have a quiet moment or a natter to a friend. Having a few iPhone apps that they can play with, could really add on to your social or rest time. Here are a few examples of what is currently available.
Elmo’s Monster Maker
Sesame Street’s Elmo will help children to create their own monster. They get to choose its body and features such as hat and then he will play with the monster. You can change the look of the monster, take a picture of it and play music for it to dance too.
If you are staying away form home with your baby then this app is really useful. It is a baby monitor which, if it hears any noise will telephone any number you wish. Therefore it can the home number at the place you are staying or maybe another mobile phone that is in the house. The sensitivity can be adjusted so if your child is a snorer it will not think that is it crying.
This is a very cheap app which has a selection of games aimed at toddlers and pre-school children. It has things like dot-to-dot, colouring, sounds, matching, shapes, colours and ABC. It is the ideal thing to entertain children when they are bored. Good for restaurants, train journeys or things like that.
