I know, I had you at FREE right? Well, you read correctly. I am thrilled to tell you about two new apps that just launched from Disney Junior.
My girls are obsessed with our iPad. Did I mention obsessed? And let me tell you, that little guy can be a serious life-saver. From long car rides to even longer doctors appointments to after office conference calls. It surely comes in handy more than I every expected. So whenever I hear about a new app my kids will love and FREE, I am all about it.
I was super-excited to hear about the very first interactive episode for the iPad, “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Road Rally Appisode“, along with the new app perfect for my Littles, “Jake’s Never Land Pirate School,” available not just on your iPad but your iPhone and iPod touch too!
Sometimes when an app is free, especially when it comes to an app for your child well, let’s be honest, it’s not the best. Of course, not always but sometimes. However – these Disney Junior apps seriously rock.
First up to download: Jake’s Never Land Pirate School
So, I am not going to lie. My husband was ready to try this out for me. I had to convince him, he needed to let the kids play. His response: “But, it’s really pretty cool.” I know, big kid at heart. But, it’s true. Both my 2.5 year old and 5 year old loved it. And even though it’s a Pirate Adventure they didn’t care. Girls love Pirates too! From completing pirate-themed challenges in Sailing, Pirate Band, Map and Spyglass and Pixie Dust classes there is plenty to do in this Never Land adventure. Not to mention, you get a customizable pirate certificated signed by Jake himself. My girls loved it! Especially the ability to import a child’s photo. So fun! You really do become completely immersed in Never Land with this super-fun app. Surprisingly, my 5 year old didn’t get bored. She sometimes has the attention span of a nat but she planned this game for a steady 30 minutes at least and was ready to play again later. I kind wanted to try myself too! It’s a must download right now kinda thing.
Next up to download: Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Road Rally Appisode
First off, who doesn’t love Mickey Mouse Clubhouse? I find myself humming the theme song as I am typing this. Apparently, we watch enough Disney Junior around here. I love how the “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Road Rally Appisode“App brings together the iPad experience with the hit show. Perfect for ages 2-7, you can tap, touch, swipe, shake, drag and talk through an entire episode of “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.” Putting together problem solving skills, critical thinking and valuable counting are among activities presented in the “appisode.” My girls described it as “super-fun.”
Can’t get enough of Disney Junior? We love the channel. Check out Disney Junior WATCH. It makes full length episodes of its popular shows available online at www.watchdisneyjunior.com and via the Disney Junior WATCH app on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. And again it’s FREE!
