Now here is an app (for your iPhone and/or iPad) that is entertaining and educational for the preschoolers. My 3 year old (and more advanced 7 year old) both love the Madagascar Preschool Surf N’ Slide app.
The app is very simple for a preschooler to navigate. The options are to choose one of four characters (baby Marty, Gloria, Melman or Alex) and then choose from a selection of magic carpets or surfboards. Next, the character is guided through various scenes, where they collect stars and miscellaneous objects along the way.
My favorite part of the app is when the character gets to the “challenges” along the way. These challenges are great educational stops for the preschoolers. After each challenge is completed, they get to choose a “sticker” and can place it on one of the various “sticker book” scenes. Then, they are prompted to go back to surfing and collecting more stars and tackling more preschool-level challenges.
The app is priced at $2.99 in the iTunes store and in my opinion, it is worth purchasing. It’s one of the more visually appealing and easy to use apps out there for preschoolers.
We were given a promo code to download this app for review on ParentSphere. All of the opinions above are my own. My kids would tell you the same.
