A bright and interactive peekaboo game for babies from six months. Happy Babies is based on Ladybird’s best-selling Baby Touch books. Designed for iPhone and iPad, it’s ideal for entertaining your baby on the move or at home.

“Ideal for holding a small child’s attention [...] Happy Babies is a well-made app that offers plenty to occupy a small child while also seeming quite simple and minimal. Score: 5/5.”
Shane Richmond, The Telegraph

Key features:
• Say ‘hello’ to the friendly animal mummies and daddies
• Touch the screen to reveal their babies each time
• Hear the animal noises and see them move!
• Choose from four different scenes: Wild Babies, Water Babies, Flying Babies and Farm Babies.
• Helps to develop hand-eye coordination and focusing skills in young babies
• Helps older babies and toddlers with language acquisition

Happy Babies is stimulating, fun and educational. It has high-contrast colours and patterns, and gentle movements to help develop babies' sight and encourage tracking and focusing skills. Gentle music, sound effects and a friendly voiceover stimulate hearing and help older children begin to link words to pictures.

Does not work. Don’t buy.

The sounds on all the apps in the baby touch bundle do not work. The apps need updating, doesn’t look like it’s been done for at least a year.

Very disappointed after being charged for them.


Doesn't work

Please contact me as I can't find any answers. Half of the sounds work on this app and half don't. It looks great so I would love it to work.


Great for young babies

Both this app and the other Ladybird app (Peekaboo) have been a source of great entertainment for my baby! I first downloaded it when she was 6 months old, and she still loves to watch it now she's 10 months. The clear animation, lovely use of colour and cute (but not cheesy) animals combined with the simple movements and voice over keep her entranced. It's also a brilliant way to teach your baby animal names and sounds. I wholeheartedly recommend it, and haven't yet found a more suitable app for my little one.
