“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.”

No sound

Wasted money on this app. I had it on the nook, and she loved it, but on the iPad I get no sound. So disappointing as this was her favorite and the nook is broken.

Great for my toddler

My toddler (16mos) loves the peekaboo apps! He can play them with us or on his own. All he has to do is touch the screen to continue the story which is great. the app does an excellent job of being kid safe. The only way out of the story is a hidden area in the top right corner which so far my son never hits.

While I don't mind buying additional apps it would be great to buy new stories with in app purchases for 99¢ each (and more lucrative for the developer!). It would also be nice if the app could lock out the iPad home button (if possible) so kids can't exit the app all together. I'm suggesting having to go to the menu screen to exit the app.

This is also an excellent way to distract my toddler in the car on long trips. We can set it up, let him hold the iPad in his car seat and he plays for 20-30mins straight! Thank you Peekaboo!!

Well worth the money!

My daughter is 6 months old and has been watching/using this app for about a month. She loves it!! It has been a life saver when she gets antsy in the car, in restaurants, while shopping, or if I just need 10 more minutes to finish a chore.
Thank you!!!
