Duck Duck Moose Musical Me®
We are currently obsessed with Duck Duck Moose’s marvelous series of apps for kids, and we’ve selected another of our favorites, Musical Me, for this month’s review. Musical Me features Mozzarella the Mouse and friends in a fun and easy-to-use app designed to teach your little ones the fundamentals of music through five activities: memory, rhythm, dance, instruments and notes. The app features a number of popular songs for kids, including “Mary Had a Little Lamb,” “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” and “Pop Goes the Weasel.” Join Mozzarella the Mouse in making monsters dance to the beat, play instruments like a drum or cymbals, or learn about rhythm by getting bird characters to play a song. Moms and dads will love it, too! Cost: $1.99.
This fun app lets youngsters interact with your phone in a fresh new way. Helicopter Taxi uses your phone’s camera to make it appear that the helicopter is flying next to you across the room. Pick up or drop off one of five fun characters, like Señor Fox, by placing the phone on a flat surface, then lift it up to make it fly. Your kiddos will follow the cues and instructions to “land” on different surfaces to pick up new passengers, and then fly to the next destination. With bright, realistic 3D graphics like moving helicopter rotors, this app is sure to keep your little ones entertained. Cost: $2.99.
