These days my son is very happy and excited because of the new app he is using. Actually most parents try to limit the screen time of their kids, but I used apps and other educational programs for kids when he was very young. Today I am happy about my decision of introducing him those educational programs when he was just few months old. Of course I always controlled his time with such programs and used such programs in positive ways. As a first time mom I also didn’t have much experience in educating kids, but the educational programs helped me to teach our son.
I am always proud to say that when my son was around 1 year old and when he just started talking, he could sing A, B, C, D song. I know I didn’t teach him or I didn’t spend my time teaching him such songs. I didn’t force him to learn anything. Instead I played educational songs during day time. Sometimes he watched those and sometimes those songs were playing in background while we were busy with activities. So, screen time is self-controlled.
This is still same at our home, only I try to find age appropriate apps and videos for him.
I received Kidloland app at the right time when I was looking for some advanced programs as my son is also bit bored with basic colours, ABCD and shapes. I understood he wants bit more advanced programs or I need to teach him considering his learning level. He also learns basic shapes and colors from his playgroup classes. So, he is little bit bored!
Kidloland App could win his heart and it is a new experience for him. Yes, the secret is; so far I used desktop for playing educational songs. This is to avoid him using my phone because you know how kids can be addicted.
Well, before going into further details of our experiences, let me introduce the Kidloland App.
Kidloland Educational App for kids
Kidloland is an educational app for toddlers and young kids below 6 years old which includes lot of nursery songs and activities. It includes over 240+ interactive nursery rhymes, songs and 100+ educational activities.
Our experience with Kidloland app (Kidloland app review)
As I said above my son loves this app. He loves most because he doesn’t want to seek my help to change the songs or activities. Instead he spends his own time changing songs and activities. It is bit relax for me too.I also happy to see when he is independent.
The colourful screens and beautiful songs are really attractive and keep him engaged. We found ABC songs, vegetables, shapes and 1-10 counting songs which are suitable for kids including very young babies who are in their early education.
For my son, he loves to watch new lessons for him such as names of insects, animals and birds. He also started watching counting songs from 10-20.Other than songs, he loves to play activities such as connecting dots and solving puzzles.These are new activities for him and I am happy to see he learns new words such as insects and birds which he didn’t know before.
I am really happy because I could introduce him some advanced educational program at the time he was bored with alphabet and basic colours. However this doesn’t mean that Kidloland is not suitable for very young children who are beginning to learn. You can easily select the songs and activities which are appropriate for your kid as there are lot of songs and activities available.
