There’s a huge debate when it comes to children and technology, some parents allow their kids to use tablets, TVs etc and some it’s a complete no go which fair enough everyone is entitled to their own opinion and to bring their children up to how they wish, myself I see no problem with Scarlett using them. Scarlett watches TV and plays games including educational games on my phone but she isn’t stuck to the device 12 hours a day everyday, we still teach her so much but it has contributed and helped her thrive.
Kidloland* is an award winning downloadable app for phones and tablets aimed at 0-5 year olds which includes 1000+ nursery rhymes, songs, stories, activities, games for kids on their app. The app is really easy to navigate through for both parents and children, Scarlett has had absolutely no problem with using it and finding what she wants.
Whenever me and Scarlett are out and about especially when it comes to using public transport for long time periods I think it is important for us to have entertainment as she gets bored of books and me pulling funny faces after a while, she’s probably thinking what the hell is mummy doing half the time. Generally Scarlett tends to use Kids Youtube where she finds things like Peppa Pig and Paw Patrol but this absolutely drains my data use age when we are out and about but with Kidloland within the app you are able to download the items so that whenever your on the go or have no internet your child can still use the app, so there is no worrying about using all your data.
What I love most about Kidloland is that it is really interactive, it’s not just getting her to sit in front of a TV and watch it like you would with shows like Paw Patrol, she has to interact with the app for example learn to trace, on the screen it comes up with a letter of the alphabet, it requires you to trace the letter with your finger. Scarlett is in love with this app and mummy plays along with it too.
App is free to download, subscription packages available at £3.99 for 1 month, £18.99 for 6 months, £29.99 for 12 months.
