My Playhome iconis a calming app that encourages open-ended play.

Kids as young as two (and as old as ten) will enjoy discovering the many interactive features built in to this seeming simple but multi-layered dollhouse app.

There are no scores, deadlines, power ups, or lives to lose.  Just four fun-filled rooms to explore in a sweet and simple house.

Why we like it:

There are so many fun surprises in every room!  Put in a new CD.  Take a bite out of an apple.  Fry an egg.  Brush your teeth.  Pet the cat.  Get some cold pizza out of the fridge.  Your kids won’t get bored any time soon.

As if that’s not enough, you can add family members into the tableau and make them part of your story too.

Maybe future updates will include the option to choose the family’s ethnicity.  If it had that, it would be pretty much perfect.

    The price in iTunes is $2.99, not $1.99.
