Best educational iphone and ipad apps for kidsTallyTots for the iPad is a colorful, intuitive counting app that’s more polished than most.

Twenty numbered cards fan out over a blue sky dotted with fluffy white clouds.  After that, your toddler is in charge.

For example, she can water five flowers, put ten shapes in a puzzle, and tidy up twelve toys (you can dream), and then do it all over again.

Oh, and she’ll be learning her numbers too.

Why we like it:

It’s a pretty and positive app with lots of thoughtful touches.  For instance, there are timers on each of the number cards so that your toddler can’t accidentally leave a page mid-task.  She’ll have to hold each one down for three seconds to go to a new number.

Also, what kid doesn’t like feeding a chipmunk 19 acorns?

    A number of your prices are listed as 50-100 percent lower than what is listed on iTunes

  2. Jamie Pearson says:

    Our prices are correct at the time of testing as stated in our disclosure policy:

    Unfortunately we have no way of adjusting prices since they fluctuate at the developers’ whims.

  3. Matt Hutton says:

    We’ve had another whim. We’re lowered the standard price to $1.99 for this app so this post is correct again :) You can now grab TallyTots, AlphaTots and TableTots for $1.99 each on the iPad and just $0.99 on the iPhone.

    We’ve just submitted an update for all our iPad apps that really boosts the performance, particularly for iPad 1 owners. Those will be available very soon.

    And last but not least, SpinLight’s latest creation is called Operation Math. Check out the trailer:
