    Default Best android kids apps

    Hi all,

    We have just purchased our first family tablet and I am wondering if anyone can recommend any good (preferably free) apps for a 5 year old. I am mainly looking for ones that will keep my ds entertained but for them to also be educational.
    I am taking both my boys (5 &14months) to NZ by myself in a few weeks and we will be doing heaps of driving etc so I am hoping this will be one way to keep my eldest boy entertained.

    TIA

    Have you seen Abc reading eggs? I had a coupon code for a trial and my 3 year old has loved it.

    Don't know of any others, so am interested in others' responses too. We''ve used our tablet on flights and loaded a few playschool episodes on - could something like that be an option to mount to the back of a car seat?

    Theres reading eggs. Dd really likes that.
    We also got a micro sd card and downloaded her fave tv shows to it so she could watch them on the plane.

    Yep we have tried reading eggs and he loved it so that is on the list and we have a few movies on there for him but he gets bored of just watching tv/movies pretty quickly so want apps he can interact with I guess.
    Will definitely be looking at the head rest mounts for in the car so thank you for that suggestion
    Anyone else?

    Fruit ninjah! My 3 y.o DS loves it! Pretty simple game but he gets really entertained with it plus it's a good game to practice eye-hand coordination at an early age!
