Kidloland Nursery Rhymes app – Review and giveaway

Both my girls love singing along to nursery rhymes and watching nursery rhyme videos on the iPad so when I was recently offered the chance to review the Kidloland Nursery Rhymes app, I thought it sounded like something that the girls would enjoy.

I have 5 x 3month subscriptions for the Kidloland nursery rhymes app to give away to my readers

 

The app is aimed at children under the age of five.  I was quite amazed by just how much content is available within the app – more than 245 nursery rhymes and over 100 different games and activities, including jigsaw puzzles, shape sorting games and images to colour in.  There are lots of different categories available on the app – nursery rhymes, ABCD songs, phonics, activities, Old Macdonald songs, vehicles, animal kingdom, fruits and vegetables, Row Your Boat, numbers, lullabies, colors and shapes, months and days, games and Christmas songs.  Enough to keep my girls amused for quite some time – which sounds ideal for car journeys if we end up planning a road trip this summer!

I loved the style of the animations for the videos and the girls especially liked the fact that it was interactive – they could touch an object or character on the video and it would move or do something.  There are also subtitles at the bottom of the screen to help sing along – more useful for me at the moment as my girls aren’t yet able to read, but this was also a nice feature.  The spellings are American English though – which is something to bear in mind if you’re using the app to help encourage children with reading.

Some of the rhymes are available for free with the app and others can be purchased in-app.  You can also access all the songs on the app via a subscription which can be for 1 month, 6 months or a year.  Once the subscription is active, you can then download additional songs and activities – either directly from each category or via the settings (which is quicker and easier if you’re downloading multiple song and activity packs).  Opening the settings requires the user to answer a simple maths question which helps minimise little people accidentally accessing it.  You can also create a playlist of favourite songs via the settings which I quite liked – the girls definitely have their favourites out of the nursery rhymes!

Once the songs and activities in the app are downloaded, they can be accessed without the need for an internet connection – again very useful if we are planning on using it to help keep the girls amused on long car journeys!

 

Both the girls seem to prefer watching the nursery rhyme videos to accessing other parts of the app at the moment and it is lovely to hear them singing along to the songs whilst using the app.  I liked the variety of songs available too – especially with having different versions of favourites such as Old Macdonald (having a circus or a jungle).  I suspect I’ll be using the songs in the phonics section more in the summer as we prepare for Jessica starting school and the numbers section to help Sophie with her counting skills.

Overall, this is a fabulous app with a good variety of songs and activities to keep little ones amused.  Jessica is almost five and at the upper end of the age limit for the app, although I can see her still enjoying it for quite a while yet, and two-year old Sophie found it easy to use and had no problems trying to find the things she wanted in the app!  It’s certainly got the thumbs up from my girls.

    My baby is almost 3 months old, so is too young for the app, but I will keep in mind for when she’s a bit older. I can’t wait to teach her nursery rhymes. Thank you for sharing it with us. 🙂 #TribalLove

    We like Wind The Bobbin Up though it took me ages to learn all the words!

    That actually looks better than I expected it too. I saw it advertised the other day and dismissed it as my little man doesn’t play apps yet but maybe I shouldn’t have been so dismissive. Lovely honest review. #bloggerclubUK
