But don't take our word for it! This mom lists the apps on her phone as one of her Mommy Must Haves:
For everything from entertainment to education, we can't live without our apps! And here are some smart apps for moms that'll make your kids even smarter ... by teaching them their ABC's:
- The Animal Alphabet (iPhone, iPad $1.99)
Created by two dads, this cool app is a standout. Every image is a stunning (and we're talking frame-worthy!) original work of art. So not only does it do a stellar job teaching kids the alphabet, they get a dose of art appreciation with every letter!
- Interactive Alphabet (iPhone, iPad $2.99)
Named Best iPad App of the Year for 2010 by iLounge, this app turns every letter into a toy your kid can actually play with! It's so fun it'll make you want to learn your ABCs all over again. Oh, and your kid'll dig it, too!
- Kids ABC Letters (Android $3.99)
This app is the first in a three-part Reading Curriculum Series that takes your kid from A to Z ... literally. The app teaches your kid the basic letters in a super-fun, interactive way. And once they get their ABCs down, they can graduate to the phonics and reading apps by the same guys. It's like a whole elementary school education in your phone!
- Magnetic Alphabet (iPhone, iPad $1.99)
Remember those plastic magnetic letters you used to have on the fridge? Well, like everything else these days, they've gone virtual. The graphics in this app look just like the retro real deal, only your toddler can't choke on them!
- Nick Jrs A to Z With Moose and Zee (iPhone $1.99)
This app turns learning the ABCs into a fun-filled adventure! Your kid follows Moose and Zee on a quest for hidden letters in tons of different cool virtual locations. If your kid is a Moose and Zee fan, this is the app for him!
- AlphaBetty (iPhone, iPad $1.99)
AlphaBetty is an adorable owl who introduces kids to animals and gets them to identify the letter each critter starts with. This app has incredibly cool graphics and also offers up fun facts about the creatures and a memory game that's seriously addictive!
