Kids apps area is one of the fastest growing segments in the App Store. These apps are exciting and interesting and can also educate. They can get kids to read or learn while some of the apps can get them engage in stories. Most of the kids apps are inexpensive as their prices range from USD 0.99 to USD 4.99. This article can help you find out the popular kids apps that are right for your child.

Lulu in Polynesia: This iPhone app, developed by ZANZIBOOK, is the second volume in the Lulu and Zazou collection. It helps kids explore Polynesia with two interesting characters – Lulu and her kitten Zazou. This app has text and voice narration in all the pages and a few pages has conversations too. Lulu in Polynesia also has small games to motivate the children to explore more. The font size is a bit smaller, but one should understand the limitations of the universal apps. Lulu in Polynesia is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad and requires iOS 4.0 or later. This app is available in English and French. It costs USD 2.99.

Cars in Sandbox: Construction: This is an interactive car game for children (aged over 2 years) that can enhance their fine motor skills. After launching Cars in Sandbox, users could see eight different vehicles in the main screen – dump truck, dumper, tractor, grader, crawler-mounted excavator, telescopic handler, loader and crane. Kids have to explore these different types of construction vehicles and their purposes. This app is pretty easy to use, but still a Help section might be handy. Cars in Sandbox: Construction is one of the top apps in its category. It is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad and requires iOS 4.2 or later. It costs USD 2.99. Download it here: http://itunes. apple.com/us/app/cars-in-sandbox-construction/id487029630?mt=8

School Fonts: This is an iPhone app that can help kids write plain and cursive fonts. The main screen of School Fonts features four activity areas including Words, Numbers, Lower Case and Upper Case. They have three tracing options - outlines with directional tracing arrow prompts, solid lines without arrow prompts, and dot representations. The Words section has more than 35 lessons that include writing out family names and finding out missing vowels from words. This app has a lot of option, but I think the designer could have presented them all in a bit more pleasing way. School Fonts is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad and requires iOS 4.0 or later. It costs USD 4.99. Download it here: http://itunes. apple.com/us/app/school-fonts-learn-to-write/id498417058?mt=8

We are in the beginning of the age of kids apps and we are definitely going see more in a few months time. These apps are doing a great job by engaging children in stories using the technologies they already love. If you want to try a few for your kids, these three apps are my recommendation. These apps are as visually engaging as they are to the ear and they can bring out the best in your children, I think.
