I promise you that your tweens will love Scribblenauts Remix.

Chances are some of you lucky ducks got an iPad or an iPhone as a gift this holiday season. If so you are probably overwhelmed by all of the possibilities for apps, and have been searching nonstop.  You’re not the only one.  The BBC reports that more than 1.2 billion — with a B! — apps were downloaded in December worldwide.

The best apps I’ve found are always those reviewed by other moms, so I thought I’d share my children’s most favorite apps for kids so you have some ideas of things you might like to download to keep your younger ones happy.  I was inspired by Cool Mom Tech, which recently released their lists of the best apps in 2011 for little kids and preschoolersgradeschoolers and tweens.

Scribblenauts Remix

A fantastic game for the imagination, Scribblenauts Remix allows my 10-year-old Jack to create and bring to life objects to solve problems. As described by IGN, "Players must get a star trapped on top of a tree. You could get it with a ladder. Or chop down the tree with an axe. Or bring down the tree with a giant beaver. Or burn it down with a fire. Or simply make a helicopter and fly up to the star. Or throw a baseball at the star to dislodge it. Or create a bulldozer and knock it over..." There are endless possibilities. He just loves, loves, LOVES this game. I was playing it with him last night and got hooked as well. Big fan!
