Gombby Stickers Interactive App

If you have been enjoying the Gombby’s Green Island Channel I previously reviewed, you and your family will have fun with the latest app from Magnistage, Gombby Stickers. Once your little ones are familiar with the characters and adventures from watching the episodes on the Gombby Channel, they can use this app to make scenes on their own by placing virtual stickers with items and characters wherever they please. My son’s favorite is “Un día de nieve.” Here’s the sceneRead More ...

Mr. Mouse Multilingual Spelling App

Another multi-level, multilingual app, Mr. Mouse from Chocolapps is a great spelling and vocabulary resource. In six languages and three levels, your kids can learn themed vocabulary, including First Words and Fruits & Vegetables. The objective is to spell as many words as possible correctly so as not to wake Mr. Mouse, the sleepwalking mouse whose dreams provide clues for players. Mr. Mouse is just one of many educational apps from Chocolapps, which offers a helpful parents’ community. Find Mr.Read More ...

Multilingual App: La Sirenita Pop-Up Book

Little princes and princesses alike will have fun with the new StoryToys app, The Little Mermaid/La Sirenita. A pop-up book in electronic form, it’s another cute adaptation of a classic story. The best part, of course, is that it can be played in Spanish (and 4 other languages, too).  Even kids who don’t know the story of La Sirenita will enjoy the games that pop up every few pages and include tasks like decorating Ariel’s hair with conch shells andRead More ...

Learn Spanish: Challenging Spanish Game For All Ages

I don’t often get sucked into iPad games, but I must admit that I got a bit competitive with myself on this one. Learn Spanish from MindSnacks is an excellent way to challenge your language skills, no matter your level. Learn numbers, body parts, foods, vacation vocab, and more in a quick-paced game. Create an account, tell the app your skill level, track your progress, and level up with “Quests.” This is quite different from a kids’ app that runsRead More ...

Gombby’s Green Island: New Kids’ App {Giveaway}

  If your kids love animated shows in Spanish, i.e. Pocoyó and El perro y el gato, you won’t want to miss out on Gombby’s Green Island. This newly released show and its corresponding app from developer Magnistage have a great educational spin, as Gombby – a curious little boy – learns about the world with his friends. Together, they find out from the all-knowing Gadget Man/Ingenuico how gravity works, why we all have fears, and more of life’s greatestRead More ...

Animals in Spanish App for Toddlers

If you have a toddler, you know that even the most exciting toy can become boring after just a few minutes. That’s why apps are a great choice for the 1-4 age group – affordable and educational fun that is constantly offering something new! Our latest discovery is this Animals in Spanish app from Kandoobi. I am impressed with the range of animals included, given that many animal-centered apps are limited to the most popular ones. I even learned aRead More ...

Spanish Pronunciation App for Therapists and Teachers

We review a lot of family-friendly apps that kids can discover on their own, but I’d like to share a useful one that is intended for therapists, teachers, and parents who want to help students of all ages with Spanish pronunciation. Spanish Artik from Smarty Ears is a thorough app whose structure is based on the science of phonemes, a linguistic term referring to the smallest units (sounds) of a language. This app allows you to add multiple students andRead More ...
