A delightfully engaging app based on the beloved children’s song. Five Little Musical Monkeys takes the rhyme that children love on a genre-hopping journey of singing, dancing, counting and musical exploration. The app comes equipped with Pop, Reggae and Bluegrass versions of the song and several others styles, such as Blues, Punk, Cajun and Mariachi can be added instantly. Children can try their hand at guitars, basses, accordions and more, all with a simple kid-friendly interface. To top things off, they can even practice their counting – in English, Spanish or French –choosing which animated objects they like best.


LISTEN, SING and DANCE – Play the classic song in a variety of different musical styles. Pop, Reggae and Bluegrass are included and Punk, Blues, Mariachi (Spanish) and Cajun (Cajun French) are all available instantly.

PLAY the INSTRUMENTS – Using a simple interface, kids (and grownups), can select an instrument and then play simply by tapping on a tree trunk. Choose major or minor keys and play either by yourself or as a duet.

COUNT – Select whether you’d like to count flying bananas, electric guitars or popping palm trees. Then choose to count in English, Spanish or French. You can even give your device a good shake and let the app choose a combination at random!

Not only is this app perfect for kids to learn of and get familiar with different types of music, it's also very funny and relaxing. I'm pleasantly surprised that you can unlocking everything costs no more than 2 bucks. Definitely recommended.


Love this app!

A friend recommended this app and I have to say it does not dissapoint! So easy to use and so many great tunes.. my lil guy is only 6 months but he is digging it big time! Got a few of the upgrades too which are well worth it.. I highly recommend!


Excellent app: music, language, counting.

Great animation, space to jam and music adults will enjoy, as well as kids :)

I wish more children's apps were like this - fun, but plenty educational too - upgrades are well worth it.
