The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore

'The Fantastic Flying Books of Morris Lesmore' is a wonderful story of a man who shares his love of reading. Within the story children are immersed in books and are encouraged to connect by engaging with interactive elements that are integrated into parts of the story.

Kid Weather

A six year old boy and his meteorologist dad set out to produce an app that would appeal to young children and have educational value. They succeeded and created this fantastic app that teaches children about weather. This practical app allows children and adults to keep track of weather forecasts around the world and look at an avatar who dresses accordingly.


This impressive app teaches children far more about colours, shapes and numbers than just to recognize them. They also gain an understanding of quantity, colour mixing and about shapes that stack and roll just to name a few of the components this app has to offer.

Popout! The Tale of Peter Rabbit

Popout! The Tale of Peter Rabbit is a beautifully presented app that provides children with an enhanced version of the classic story. Children are encouraged to enjoy the 50 page old classic book along with gorgeous interactive illustrations. Users pull tabs, spin wheels, enlarge objects and listen to the characters giggle while enjoying the original tale.

Let's Learn How to Draw

Let's Learn How to Draw provides children with step by step demonstrations on how to draw dogs, monsters and trains. We just love the 5 different quirky, but cute pictures that children can choose between in each category.

Awesome Eats

This fabulous educational app by the Whole Kids Foundation teaches children to identify different fruits, vegetables and grains through playing an addictive game, containing 32 levels that encourage users to sort foods into like groups. Different challenges are introduced as the levels get higher which make learning fun.

Interactive Telling Time

Interactive Telling Time is a great app that encourages children to gain a solid understanding of time on an array of different clocks. Children learn about the different features of clocks and the way they work through reading about clocks and watching demonstrations.

Word Wizard - Talking Moveable Alphabet & Spelling Test for Kids

This is an outstanding app that enables children to experiment and have fun with phonics. Through play children learn about the sounds that different letter combinations make while manoeuvring letters around on a board.

Bobo Explores Light

Bobo Explores Light is an outstanding interactive book thats interactive elements and high quality graphics show us how technology can enhance learning. In this app children don't simply watch science occur, instead Bobo The Robot takes children on a journey through gorgeous interactive pages that teach them about how our world works.

Boggle for iPad

Boggle for iPad is an excellent app based on the original board game of the same name. This game allows children to improve their word recognition and spelling by forming words within a grid of letters. This in turn helps children improve their literacy skills.

Math Songs: Times Tables 1x - 6x

This fabulous app contains six catchy sing-along videos that will teach children the 1x - 6x times tables while they're having fun. Against the clock games are added into the mix, encouraging children to recall what they've learnt and to try and beat their best personal times.

Play School Art Maker

Play School Art Maker is a fabulous app that allows children to become independent learners by using their creativity and to practise telling stories and creating narratives. They create pictures, movies and slideshows by choosing from different themes, such as the beach and space and by using objects, materials and characters from the well-known Australian TV show, Play School.
