Once again our readers nailed it when they voted Itsy Bitsy Spider by Duck Duck Moose into our Readers’ Choice Best 10 Kids Apps for 2011! Itsy Bitsy Spider is so much more than just a musical book based on the popular children’s song. This iPad app has so much to offer that your child will not want to put it down.
The spider being the main character of the song guides you from screen to screen; just give him a little poke and you are on your way. Fly teaches the user about all kinds of things related to the environment and nature. She answers many questions that we have always wanted to know the answers to; such as what does a banana slug eat or how many colors are in a rainbow. It is impossible to list all of the activities that your child can do in this app; there are just so many interactive objects. Your child can count the nuts the squirrel brings back; find musical eggs in a scavenger hunt; stack hats, carried to you by birds, and drop them onto the head of a cute little character who likes to slide down the rainbow when you touch him; jump in puddles and more.
As your child plays with the many objects in this app, they can listen to the Itsy Bitsy Spider song that comes with the app or to the recording you make. If you tire of listening to the song, it can be turned off by using the music button (purple cloud with a musical note), which can even be hidden (in your device settings) if you do not want your child playing with the options.
An iPhone version of the Itsy Bitsy Spider by Duck Duck Moose is available in the iTunes Store.
Bottom-line: Itsy Bitsy Spider by Duck Duck Moose is a fun, educational app that your child will want to spend hours with and the price won’t leave a hole in your wallet.
The app is like an interactive movie, panning to a different scene each time you poke the spider. A friendly tutor (a fly!) teaches your child about nature and the environment.
