  5. Amy from Sprint here – Here’s another kid-friendly app available through the Android Market for HTC Hero and Samsung Moment from Sprint:
    Healthy Diet For Kids – Helping kids lead healthy lifestyles begins with parents who teach their children to recognize healthy and unhealthy food. In this game your child’s goal is to select the healthy items to get “health reward” points.

  6. The Sesame Street Soundboard is the best app. My kid loves it. He sits the entire car ride quietly playing the songs. Download it! You wont regret it.

  7. This app isn’t free but it’s 99 cents (They wouldn’t let us charge 49!)

    We recently released CardDroid Math which is design to help kids (esp. K-3) learn math facts. It offers traditional flashcard visuals but it uses color and sound effects – especially kids’ voices – to keep things interesting and encourage kids.

    The buttons are big, it always shows you the right answer for visual reinforcement, there are no negative messages (if you answer wrong, that answer disappears and it invites you to “try again”).

    We plan to keep improving the app so I’d love to hear your comments and suggestions. You can find us at http://www.CardDroid.com or just search for “CardDroid Math” in the Android Market.

    Thanks for checking it out,

  11. The app “Sound Touch” is AMAZING for toddlers. It has a HUGE variety of beautiful images + sounds of: animals, vehicles, musical-instruments, household… it’s a real lifesaver in car rides. It’s very simple to use, my 20 months old son can play with it for an entire hour! Exceptional quality.

  12. Here’s a nice game for kids of all ages. It is inspired by an old game called SquareOff that my mom and I played endlessly when I was a kid. This version for Android can be played by a single player or, like mom and I did, you can play head-to-head on the same phone or tablet.

    The game is simple and quick to play but never gets old.

    AniWorld is a new application designed to help your child learn more about animals in an interactive enjoyable way.
    The Application is designed to encourage the child to proactively explore the animal kingdom and learn much more about each of the animals.
    Each animal has the following functions to explore:
    • Animal home – Here we learn where does the animal rest or sleeps.
    • Feed me – The child can feed the animal by choosing the right food from different 3 options.
    • Pet me – pet the animal to get it gurgle and see it’s heart filled with joy. Once the animal is happy it will surprise with music and funny faces
    • From birth to adult – see the life cycle of the animal from birth to adulthood

    But most of all ANiWorld is a fun application that your child with play with for many hours.
