*This is a sponsored post by KidloLand. In exchange for my honest review of the app, KidloLand gave my family a free subscription package. This is my honest opinion of my family’s experience with KidloLand app for preschoolers and toddlers.
We’re on Week 4 of our Fall homeschool semester, and everything is going really well. Elijah and Michala (my teens) are settled in with their new school schedule, and my toddlers Zhen (age 3) and Zechariah (age 15 months) are enjoying learning new preschool concepts.
Now, Zechariah, of course, is too young to fully grasp preschool education. But he loves the one-on-one time I have with Zhen and him. When my teens are busy with their lessons, I play with Zhen and Zechariah and then we do a couple of structured learning activities together.
One learning activity I have implemented with our preschool studies is computer time. For computer time, I have Zhen and Zechariah play educational games on the tablet. We use websites such as Starfall and PBS Kids.
A few weeks ago, KidloLand reached out to me to try their new app for kids. I thought it would be a perfect fit for our computer time activities, so I accepted their offer. I am so glad I did because my little ones absolutely LOVE KidloLand!
Zhen and Zechariah love the beautiful, bright colors and the songs. They love playing the games and following along with the stories. KidloLand has been a wonderful asset for Zhen and Zechariah. So today I am going to share the reasons why we love KidloLand.
KidloLand is a Kid Safe certified app for preschoolers and toddlers. The app features 575+ nursery rhymes, songs, stories,learning activities, and games for children. There are 100+ educational activities such as counting games, a complete phonics section, and learning games.
KidloLand is very musical.
We loved how musical the app is. Zhen and Zechariah love music. They love singing and dancing. Sometimes Zhen will turn a song on, put the tablet down, and start dancing. Zechariah follows his big sister and starts dancing with her, too. It’s the cutest thing.
Song interaction keeps kids engaged.
Another thing my little ones love about the music is how interactive the music videos are. While the songs are playing, they can touch different characters and objects in the video and they do different things. For instance, a character might play an instrument or dance. I like this feature about the video because it keeps them busy and they’re not just watching a video.
I must confess, when I discovered this feature, I was instantly hooked and I kept playing different songs with Zhen and Zechariah just to see what characters and objects would move during the song!
Easy to-do puzzles.
Another favorite feature of the KidloLand app are the puzzles. Zhen absolutely loves puzzles! She has a box full of puzzles at her our house. She also loves computer puzzles. So when she discovered the puzzles on KidloLand she was very excited!One of the great features about KidloLand is no ads and no spam! Very kid-friendly! Click To Tweet
No ads or spam!
This is a BIG favorite of ours. My husband and I will constantly look for kid apps on the Play Store so out toddlers can play a game. One of the frustrating things we have found is most of those games feature ads/spam. And when Zhen or Zechariah play a game, they click on the ads not understanding it is something they shouldn’t click on. Then we have to close out of the web page which pops up and open the game back.
But thankfully, KidloLand does not have ads on its app. Once you open the app, you do not have to worry about your child closing out of it. From our experience, Zhen and Zechariah did not close out of the app unintentionally. It made their play time so much more enjoyable.
KidloLand is kid-friendly.
KidloLand app is very kid-friendly. It has a simple interface which features the menu of activities the child can select. Once the child touches their activity of choice, it goes directly to the activity. There are no confusing features such as “Play Now” or “Demo”.
I was very impressed with how easy it was for my 15 month old to navigate the KidloLand app. You know, my 1 year old doesn’t understand how to use electronic devices. So one of the great things about KidloLand is after I select an activity for Zechariah, he can touch the activity and it stays on the selection and he doesn’t get frustrated about it closing out because he accidentally touched the wrong feature.
Downloadable features can also be used offline.
The downloadable activities and songs are a great favorite of my husband’s. When you first open KidloLand, you have to download the activities and songs to your app. Don’t worry, it’s all featured in the app so you don’t have to download and open files and then reopen the app. It’s all very simple. And once the activities are downloaded, your child can use play the activities offline so you’re not using up your data on your device.
I do recommend when you first open your KidloLand app, a parent downloads the activities because it can be a little confusing to a young child. But once the activities are downloaded, it is very easy for a little one to use.
And lastly, we absolutely love how educational the KidloLand activities are! I know many parents worry about their children having too much screen time or playing inappropriate games. KidloLand is age appropriate for preschoolers and toddlers and it also encourages learning concepts such as counting and letter recognition.
KidloLand would love to offer a FREE 3 month subscription to 5 lucky winners!
