If you have an iPad in the house, then you already know how popular it is with toddlers and pre-schoolers. The easy-to-hold shape, the bright colors, and the intuitive touchscreen display all combine to make it the perfect device for young and inquisitive minds.
Of course, the iPads appeal to young children hasn’t been lost on Apple and its army of app developers. There are thousands of apps specifically targeting the 1-6 age group and more are being added every week. They range from games and puzzles to educational apps to interactive picture books and more.
While this gives parents and care-givers plenty to choose from, it can also makes the App Store a very confusing place. If you’re looking for a few age-appropriate apps for your own pre-schooler, we’ve come up with a few of our own favorites to help get you started.
