Finally Apps Toddlers and Preschoolers Can Enjoy Playing -- CosmoCamp Apps (Review)

Disclosure: This post is part of a sponsored campaign with CosmoCamp and MomSelect. All thoughts and opinions are my own.





Lately, I have been having a hard time finding apps for the girls that don't contain in-ad pop ups, or the need to buy additional tokens or items to continue game play.  It seems whenever they sit down to play with the iPad, they get frustrated as they need my help to disable a pop up, or I need to buy and add more levels of game play.  Not fun for either the kids or I, when I have to stop what I am doing to fix this, and for them that they are looking to unwind with a fun app and need my help all the time.  But, this past weekend, the girls and I stumbled across some great new adventure books from CosmoCamp, that are great for both toddlers (ages 2-3) and even preschoolers (4-5 yrs. old).  It is hard to find apps that is age specific to the girls, and that they can play together, or separate.  Now, with the four new CosmoCamp apps I downloaded to the iPad, the girls can be entertained, not only with fun stories, but the illustrations and animations really make the stories come alive and more fun for the girls.


Even though we have only had these apps since Saturday, the girls have been helping me try them out, and can't get enough of them.  From a fun interactive storybooks, to a coloring book app and a matching app, the girls are having fun while learning with CosmoCamp.  Here is more about the apps from CosmoCamp that we have been using and enjoying:

In addition to the four new apps I was given codes to review, I also ended up purchasing and downloading these two additional CosmoCamp apps for the girls.  Savannah right now loves the clothes designer apps for kids, so I though she would get a kick out the CosmoCamp: Migo and Pandy’s Dress Up Game app's dress up and sew featuresYou should have saw how proud of herself she was when she designed a fun new outfit for Migo and Pandy to wear, and couldn't wait to show it off to us.  As for Bella, she is more into coloring and loves mixing primary colors to make new colors.  And, she loves being able to add color to online pictures and see them come alive with color thanks to her "magic fingers" filled with color. :-)
