This week it’s all about the geekson. He’s now 17 months old, and although he’s had access to an iPad since birth, it really seems like this week he’s taken a huge developmental leap in terms of interacting with it. Now instead of just randomly hitting at the screen he’s taking the time to look at what he is seeing, and to respond to it. He particularly loves anything with animals in it, as he’s learning to make the right animal noises, and watching him as he says “baa!” or “meow” to the screen is absolutely gorgeous! So it should come as no surprise that my app of the week this week is one we’ve been getting a lot of play time out of, and it involves animals…
I was sent a promo code for Happy Babies: Ladybird Baby Touch by Penguin Books some time ago, following my written review of their first app, Baby Touch:Peekaboo. At the time the geekdaughter was too old for the app, and the geekson had lost interest in the iPad, so it’s just been sitting on my devices waiting for a good moment to try again. And this week that moment arose! We’ve been getting so much fun out of the app that it’s definitely been our app of the week. Watch my video to see it in action:

Happy Babies: Ladybird Baby Touch is available in the iTunes app store for £1.99.
