KidloLand is an all in one app that meets the educational needs of children from toddlers to school age. I have never seen an app that offers so many ways to learn in one place. It offers nursery rhymes, songs, phonics, stories, games, and other activities. Here are my first impressions, pros and cons of using KidloLand.
I am so excited to share with you KidloLand. It is an awesome app! I am using with my 16 month old and my 5 year old and they both love it. This app works well with a wide age range. My little guy enjoys listening to stories and songs, so he really enjoys the nursery rhyme poems and music. When he uses KidloLand it’s mainly to listen. Typically, his goal when he plays with any type of technology is to turn it off. However, when he does interact with technology, he mainly listen songs and poems while playing. I like the nursery rhyme poems that are included in the app. Nursery Rhymes are a great way to teach pre reading skills, and they teach a lot of phonological skills in a short time. The nursery rhymes are not your typical 6 or 7 stanzas. The nursery rhymes are extended, with lines that I have never heard before, and the scenes created for each rhyme allows children to explore and change what is happening.
My five year old loves KidloLand also. He really enjoys reading stories like Rachel the Rabbit and Picasso the Penguin. He loves reading and really likes to hear and read stories himself. The stories are also interactive and allow him to change and play with the background of the story. He enjoys listening to Nursery Rhymes because there are so many to choose from.
Pro: A variety of activities to choose from. There are games children can play, like popping balloons or putting together fruit puzzles. I have had the app for a couple of weeks and I know there is more to explore.
Pro: Very user friendly. Once you download KidloLand you have access to everything. You can decide what you want to download under each category. There are over 6 categories to choose from. Each category has activities to choose from related to that category.
Pro: Some categories include activities that do not need to be downloaded. I like that Kidloland allows you to pick and choose what you to download. You can also delete what you have downloaded from then settings if you decide that you don’t want to use it anymore.
Cons: Each category has activities to download for that category. Some categories have activities that are already included and some do not. The categories that do not have activities included, you have to download activities. I did spend some time downloading activities and then deleting because I did not have the space for everything. I wish each category included at least 1 preloaded activity.
I like that there are a range of activities to choose from. I do not need to download other apps, because everything that my children need is in one app. As a teacher mom I am constantly reviewing and downloading apps for either classroom use, or for personal educational use. I look for apps that are play based learning apps and allow children to learn through playing games.
