Sometimes we experience moments with our kids that bring tears to our eyes. Like recently, when my 2-year-old boy bravely stepped forward to sing his St. Maarten song for the strangers in the doorway, raising his homemade lantern in his hand, trying to sing the well memorized song but barely making himself heard thanks to losing his voice to a bad cold… So brave. So sweet. SO totally adorable.
Or this morning, when I downloaded Peekaboo Farm for him on my Iphone and the sweetest look of happy surprise on his face made me nearly eat him up! (I immediately downloaded peekaboo Wild too, another instant success.)
Peekaboo Farm and Peekaboo Wild are super cute educational Iphone applications aimed at one and two-year-olds, available in both English and Spanish. All the graphics are designed by Divya Srinivasan, regular contributor to the New Yorker, and are seriously very well done.
A total recommendation, both from my snotty son and me!
This IS is a great app – the Peekaboo Farm in particular! My 20 month old ‘got it’ right away.
The best game we have for her, actually, and we both work in software and have made the rounds of kid apps. We hope it comes out in French soon!
thanks guys …. anybody else have any good iPhone apps? we have abc pocket phonics – another big success coz he can now write his name on it!
We have a 3 year old that enjoys these iphone apps as well…
Itsy Bitsy Spider
Wheels on the Bus
My husband has a painting one with Curious George and I have a Xmas tree decorating app as well that you might want to check out.
We’re honestly thinking about getting him his own itouch so he’ll stop stealing our phones all the time;)

If you like Peekaboo Farm, you will LOVE the Wheels on the bus by Duck Duck Moose. We think it is FABULOUS. You can even record your own voice singing… http://duckduckmoosedesign.com/
