Best Kids’ Apps

You likely have some apps and games on your electronic device just to keep the kids entertained. There are all sorts of options, but some new ones stand out.

Tech Mom, Angie White shares three games and apps that will entertain and educate your kids.

· Puzzle Retreat (Available Free on Apple’s App Store and Google Play, free): Puzzle Retreat is a unique block-sliding puzzle game that is very simple to learn and compellingly deep. It is both fun to play and also a great brain-stretcher, so you can help keep kids minds (and your own) flexible. The challenge comes from working out the correct order to slide the blocks and really ramps up with the addition of special blocks including Fire Blocks, Stop Blocks and Arrow Blocks, which alter the direction of sliding blocks.

· Petting Zoo (Available only on Apple’s App Store, $1.99): From acclaimed author and illustrator Christoph Niemann comes this interactive picture book. Swipe and tap the 21 animals and be surprised at how they react. This app combines the charm of handmade animations and Niemann’s wry humor with state of the art technology. What would an elephant in your bathroom do? Can a dog breakdance?

· Where’s My Mickey (Available on Apple’s App Store and Google Play, $0.99): Where’s My Mickey? introduces a whole new world of life-like physics-based gameplay with stimulating weather mechanics and humorous animations. Immerse yourself in the ultimate mobile gaming experience as you watch funny episodes while solving challenging puzzles! Tap, swipe, and swirl to help Mickey collect water and complete each story. Every drop counts!
