My 2 year old loves the iPad and enjoys this one alphabet app, but aside from that he knows how to unlock the iPad and go into movies and play Toy Story...

...We try to steer away from him just watching movies, but educational/fun apps seem fine.

any recommendations?

Lol! You're doing a great thing by not putting games on it. That's the biggest mistake I did on mine... I put some educational apps and later put some games and he's most drawn into games and I don't like that.

Obviously, you can do want you want, however the iPad is not for two year olds. Get them their own iPad: Leapfrog

I hope there is not another post about how your two year old dropped you ipad. Yeah yeah I know, you watch like a hawk. But I've seen posts here that some how magically their child broke an ipad. One parent on here found their iPad cracked underneath their bed.

iPads are not for two year olds. I would not let a 2 year old, in fact anyone under the age of 10 even play with my iPad. Get them the leapfrog.

Nothing wrong with kids using it as long as your sitting with them.
He's really looking forward to 4.2. Lol.

my 3 year old cousin loved the adobe ideas app on the ipad, there is no way i would let her hold it or use it on here own but i didnt mind her drawing on it while i was there. every time she is round she wants to go on the ipad now, unfortunately i sold it a few weeks ago.

my 3 yrs old is not allow to use my ipad unless I ok it.... yes i do have 2 apps for him.. the piano and Toy Story...

he does use my wife's iphone which has a lot of his stuff... and i do let him use my ipod classic (video/movies) - only get to use them when 1) in the car. 2) at a resturant 3) on the commute train heading to school. and still those are pretty much the last thing we will do to keep the kid entertain. we have books in the book.

I can't help but wonder how misguided parents are letting young children play with things like this.
Sure it may seem like it's good, but is it?
Is it teaching real world creativity, and real world skills, patience, rewards, or instant gratification?

I'd rather children be creative in the real world with real things using their hands than to stare at a flat screen tapping on things.

I'm guessing there's very little research around to tell you what they long term consequences are of introducing these things at such a young age.

I worry, whilst it might seem like it's a good idea, it may actually be creating more long term damage, attention deficit problems with real word things don't work as well, as fast or as easy as the electronic world.

My almost 6 year old uses my iphone all the time to play games and read books. So much so that I got her an ipod touch off of ebay so that I could actually use my phone occasionally. :)

I should have an ipad on my porch when I get home this afternoon, and I'll let her play with that too. These things can be great learning tools, just like childrens tv programming, but in moderation of course. She's been reading better than her 9 year old cousin since she turned 4.

Doctors are now saying that computer use might be detrimental to a young child's mental development.

An article last week mentioned that children should not be exposed to computers but, rather be exposed to real objects(they cited Lego in their example) and use their hands and imagination.


I for one wouldn't let a young child ever use a computer.

Hmmm, I remember back in the '50's, people saying the same about television. So, how many visual artists and writers do you think were early-influenced by this distraction?

In the meantime, this thread started drifting off-topic in the very first response. Can we get back to the topic?

I'd still like to know what apps for 2-year olds are recommended? (My grandson has his own abandoned iPhone. It's a blessing when his parents take him out to a resturaunt. No screaming todler.) :rolleyes:

Yeah kids without TV's might actually go outside to play, ride their bikes and go round local friends for real to play with real toys.

Oh the horror of it all.

Interesting thread.

At my family Holiday gathering, I noticed many of my very young second cousins all using iPads and/or iPods/iPhones. Some were as young as four; it hit me as kinda insane.

That said, these kids are growing up in a world where so much of their lives will be digital. It would probably be detrimental to them in their educational careers to not be using this tech from an early age. As a elementary aged kid growing up in the 90s, computers were finally becoming something that teachers wanted to use in the classroom... Many college-aged folks today will have memories of using 80s era Tandy 1000s in the early 90s. I remember this sparked my interest in computers and technology in general. In many ways, a modern equivalent might be a three year old using an iPad.

That said, there are the inherent qualities of an iPad make it a less than ideal "tool for the job," so to say. Putting a $600 device in the hands of someone that young is an [expensive] accident waiting to happen.

Missed the point. I want my son and daughter-in-law to be able to enjoy a dinner out and take the 2 year-old along without having to run outside with him if he gets cranky (remember, "terrible twos?)

He is completely relaxed and at home with his run out old iPhone and that keeps him occupied and socially quite for an hour so and keeps my son's family inside the restaurant while we all enjoy a dinner. Now, if there were a few toddler apps to keep him engaged all the way to the dessert. Then we'd all be happy campers.

Still, this thread seems to drift all around the anthropological future-shock and education issues which, frankly, simply do not matter to the two-year-old or his overworked parents looking for a simple meal out with the family.

If I were the thread moderator here, I'd try to keep thread drift to a minimum.

(Been there, actually done that).

So, one last try. Any apps to suggest?

Thanks and

I came to this thread looking for recommendations and found none. How disappointing. I use my iPad 1 for school but when I'm out with my family my 5 and 2 year enjoy the diversion, great for waiting for a table or when one of the two is in a swim lesson. So here is what I have loaded right now:

-I just bought Sesame Street's "The Monster at the end of this Book" and both my kids enjoyed it. It takes about 15 minutes to "read" and they have read it a few times already.

-Magic Puzzles is great for my five year old, haven't tried it with the two year old

-MemMatches and Preschool Memory Match are great memory games that both kids enjoy. Because you can change the difficulty it adjusts nicely between the 5 and 2 year old.

-Drawing and coloring apps are always great: Doodle Buddy, Glow Draw and Crayola's colorStudio HD have different pros and cons

-Instruments: if you don't mind a bit of noise (they think it is music) try any of the instrument apps like: fingerdrums, touchband, or my favorite vuvuzela

Hope this helps a little

Well, what are they? People here are looking for answers, not "lookit me mommy" remarks and slices of your life. You claim to have the answers? I don't really think so. I think you just need to be recognized in any context. This is an information exchange, not a "Who's here" callout.

I'll just say that i would bet most of the people here who are saying kids shouldn't use iPads don't have kids.

My 4 year old loves
Monkey preschool lunchbox
Freddie-fish (port of an old DOS/Mac game)
Putt putt saves the zoo (port of an old DOS/Mac game)
Goosed up nursery rhymes
Dora's ABC's

My 11 month old (yes, 11 months) likes to just flip through pictures of the family while he sits on my lap.

My three year old loves the "My Name" app. Teaches her to write the letters of her name and other letters and numbers.

I'm totally with you guys on the benefits of iOS devices for kids, and the benefits to parents who want to go out to dinner (given that going out to dinner is otherwise practically hopeless for a 2-4 year old). I don't see any harm, and for those that do, I simply don't care what you think. Please start a new thread if you want to get on the soapbox.

Looking forward to more app recommendations especially for 3-4 year olds.

Don't know what's up with all the hate for iPads and toddlers. I think the interaction is way better than just feeding information with tv and movies.

My 2, soon to be 3 year old enjoys these:
Miss Spider's Tea Party
Miss Spider's Bedtime Story
Nighty Night! HD
Crayola Lights Camera Color
Wood Puzzle Maze HD
Alien Buddies -probably her fav

Apps she liked when she was slightly younger on iPhone:
Monkey Preschool Lunchbox
Duck Duck Moose apps
Ice Cream!

When she was about 18mos, maybe younger, we used "Toddler Flashcards". And I am convinced she truly learned how to count using "Toddler Counting."

Regarding Piggies quote above:

You dont have to let your toddler use the ipad often. However, there are occasions like long car or plane rides, when you are happy to occupy your busy toddler for an hour or two. We have travelled to Europe a few times and know what we are talking about.
Btw. Peakabok farm is a fun app for 18 months and older.

Do you not think we are moving into a digital age? If my child can start to become accustomed in these things at at early age why not? Yes kids break things if your not watching them but most people 'do' watch them and actually play games with their children on this. I'm quite happy to play with my 2 year old with my iPad and am certainly not shelling out for a leaped when I have such an amazing piece of equipment as this that I can share with my family.

I hope some of the 80 year old parents that posted 1-2 years ago about children and iPads are still getting updates to this thread.

My son who is almost 22 months can operate the iPad fine, he's worked out how to unlock it and open the app that plays his favourite Elmo movie and he knows where the play button is. Since he watches no TV we figure the occasional Elmo and Disney video and Sesame street songs will be ok for him.

We are quite happy to let him use our iPad 3rd Gen's with mild supervision, but we won't take it from him if we get up to use the toilet or get a drink. We have told him what he is and isn't allowed to do with it and he respects that and follows it. All you have to do is give them reason to trust you and your judgement completely and make sure they understand why they mustn't do something. It helps that he is very advanced for his age but I cannot see why your average 24-28 month old wouldn't be the same.

He has been playing a bowling and motorbike game on occasion on our iPhone's as well for a few months and again we trust him with it. Good education and trusting your child can go a long way. We've even trusted him to carry the phones and other breakables around and asked him to take the iPhones to the other parent and never had a problem. I think it's sad when parents cannot trust their own children! Where and who have they learned their traits from? Perhaps it says something about their primary carers if they have learned to be untrustworthy.

We will most likely make one of our old iPad 2's his exclusively in the coming months. I should mention something that I think helps him understand loss of something he breaks; he learnt what the bin was not long after he could walk, and that anything that goes in there never comes back. So when he breaks a toy beyond repair (which I think has happened maybe once or twice ever), we told him it was broken (which he already understood by then) and that we couldn't fix it (also which he could understand), and it had to go in the bin and let him do it. After doing this with a toy he played with, and without getting upset I believe that he understood that he needed to look after his gear or he'd lose it. He trusts that when we tell him to not do something it's for a good reason and listens, but we always give him an explanation he can understand at least once.

How can they learn responsibility without a chance to be responsible? Besides, any lesson you can teach a child is worth more than what could potentially get broken if we're talking about material possessions. What is more important than a child learning and being happy?

Call me a bad parent all you like friends, I'll try not to be upset about it while my child outshines yours and lives a successful life. Embrace the best years that humanity has ever been lucky enough to have as they may not last.

So the problem isn't about a childs education or reading, but the physical way they open a book? You realize books are being replaced by e-readers at an exponential rate, and will be a majority of what these kids will be learning from right?

Don't worry that our children may open a book wrong, there are much larger problems.

"Smart Toddler School Pro++" iPad / iPhone app– This fast-paced program works on many levels and will be enjoyed by younger children. Its structure is good, starting out with the basics (such as counting to five, or presenting the concept of a circle) and then moving to more advanced territory (counting to 10, and examining pentagons).* The best segments deal with alphabets, numbers, counting, colors and shapes.* The sound is clear throughout, and the lyrics are fun and informative."

The list is made based on my personal experience with the apps, and by observing how both my sons, Philip (3.5 years old) and Noah (18 months old), are interacting with these apps. The apps have been very influential for my sons, and I hope that by sharing this list, it will help other parents to provide their juniors with the best and most suitable apps for their age.

Here's an overview of the list contents:

Alphabet Apps

Alphabuild

The ABCs of God
Tomo House

Toca Boca have some awesome apps that are designed for 2-year-olds. These are the ones he likes best:


Toca Train, which lets him drive a train around, with controls that are easy for a 2 year old to pick up.
Toca Kitchen, which lets him pick ingredients and cook food for a range of people and animals.
Toca Hair Salon, which lets you cut people's hair, curl it, and even dye it. Again, with controls that are really easy for a young child to pick up.
