Excellent App for Toddlers

Duck Duck Moose has some really cool apps that very well illustrated. You can search for just that company in the App Store and pull up what they have. The Bus app is great for the 1½ to 3 year old set—right at their ability and comprehension level. The app goes through the verses of the song. Each verse has its own page, and on each page there are several things to touch. There are also some added creative versus such as "The baker on the bus says have some cake..." On the baker's page, you touch the baker to make him offer some cupcakes. Touch the frog to have his tongue come out and steal a cupcake. The monkey drops down from the roof of the bus and takes a cupcake. It is set to some nice music, and there are excellent options. Five languages are offered, including male and female options for English, plus creative options like piano trio, duet, kazoo, and gibberish. The best feature of the whole app though is that you can record yourself singing the song! It takes you through verse by verse and records you singing along to the music. Especially great for daddies and mommies who travel!

fantastic for small children

I bought this app on a whim before flying to Australia alone with a 17 month old. I had all the distractions in the world, but it was this app that saved my sanity on the flight! She continues to love it and ask for it, and it often buys us that 5 minute window while waiting in restaurants or airports.
This is one of the few apps that works well for quite small children without much parental help - there are plenty of others that she will grow into but she can work this one herself now, and she needs help with most others.
As many others have said, it is really an interactive songbook, but very well done with lovely graphics and intuitive characters - she worked out how to make most of them "go" without me. My only request would be the ability to "lock" the home button, as she presses it and exits the app when she doesn't really want to.
I just found the other DDM apps, and I'll be buying all of them for my next trip too, thank you.
