Hey, KidZui friends! Some of us at Zui HQ got some pretty cool tablets over the holiday break, and we all have one huge question: What apps should I put on this thing?!
Luckily, we’ve scoped out some of the best kid-friendly apps out there and found the 5 that you can enjoy with your little ones. Enjoy!
The monsters need to save their world! Raise and train 20 different monsters to compete in mini-battles to regain control of Numa. Kids will love the cute monsters and the challenge of back-and-forth fighting. Review site Gamezebo even went as far as to say that “if this game doesn’t charm you, you very well might be lacking a soul.” Rather high praise, and we definitely think it’s warranted! Available for free on Android and Apple iOS powered phones/tablets.
This is one of our new favorites. You and your kids can draw your own custom creations and watch them come to life! This free iPad app will stretch your kids’ imaginations and let them become amateur animators from the comfort of the living room.
Disney Pixar Brave Explorer Game Cartidge
One of the best things about LeapFrog’s LeapPad2 is that it is both tablet and traditional gaming device. This particular game is still pretty new, so it is currently $24.99, but young Merida fans will love the mini games that take them on this fairytale adventure. Plus, the games teach kids about important science topics including physics, geology, and biology. Game also works with LeapPad1, Leapster Explorer, and LeapsterGS.
Rayman Jungle Run
Ask any kid about Rayman. They’ll know what you’re talking about. And now, Rayman is back for a new adventure on iPad, iPhone, and Android devices. For $2.99, you can run jump, and collect your way through the Rayman universe. Unlock the new levels, download device wallpapers, and rack up the high scores against your friends in this awesome platformer.
Tap Pet Hotel
This game is almost too cute for words. In Tap Pet Hotel, users can collect hundreds of adorable pets and start their very own pet hotel. But that’s not all; they can even raise and breed their very own pet families to keep the hotel running and happy. You can even cross breed and create zany new creatures never before seen in this world. Best of all? It’s free on Android and iOS platforms.
That’s it for today. Enjoy your tablets, and happy gaming!
