Top 25 Android Apps for Kids

Got an iPhone? Best iPhone Apps for Kids

You may view your Android phone as a communications device, but your kids know that it's actually an awesome mobile gaming center. When you're caught in traffic or facing an unexpectedly long wait at the pediatrician's office, you are going to hand over that phone. The kids will be happy, you'll be relieved, and, if you choose your apps carefully, they might even learn something while they play. On a safety note, while some of these games have the option to network with other players, I don't recommend that for kids. Let them know they shouldn't select anything that says "Share" or "Sign into a network." Did I leave out your favorite? - Sonya Mukherjee

Fruit Ninja’s Rankings

Kids use finger swipes to slice through flying fruit, with their fingers acting as ninja blades. As more and more fruits fly through the air, they get points for each fruit they slice. Depending on the mode they choose, slicing through a bomb may end the game or just subtract points from their score. In Zen mode there are no bombs, just an endless bounty of fruit. Either way, nothing but the fruit gets harmed. As players advance, they earn the right to unlock new swords and backgrounds. At the end of each game, players are treated to a new “Sensei’s Fruit Fact.”
