Baby's Musical Hands is an award-winning musical toy for babies and toddlers for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch.
As a game designer and developer, I love my iOS devices. But as a new father, I realized how much my son loves them too. I decided I could put my experience developing for iOS to use, and build an app for my son to play with. Baby's Musical Hands was born!

Baby's Musical Hands features 15 brightly colored squares that your baby can touch. Red squares make drum sounds, yellow squares play piano notes, and blue squares play guitar notes.
Every time your baby touches the screen, colorful stars will burst from their fingers. Watch them delight in the audio and visual feedback!
Baby's Musical Hands supports full multi-touch, meaning your baby gets the kind of feedback they expect when touching the screen.
I'd love to hear from you if your son or daughter loves Baby's Musical Hands as much as mine!

Ratings and Reviews
This app is self-voicing and fully accessible for children who are visually impaired or blind. Thank you for creating an app that is exciting for ALL babies and toddlers!
FYI: the app does work with VoiceOver (Apple’s screen reader); however, only the piano sounds are heard, even when touching the read and blue squares.
My parenting does not involve screen time for my child. But I came across this app and it is PERFECT. It's simple, clean, and minimal. My daughter (currently 15mo) loves playing music and pushing buttons so this is great. We can even work on colors with it.
So, so, so, so great!
Musical app that doesn’t play music
No sound. But baby does get graphic star explosions when she touches the squares.
