    The Christmas holiday has passed,my six years old daughter had bad mood, I hope she is very happy every day. Between the holiday I had bought iPad 2 for her,and download some apps for her, but she just likes few story apps, please tell me some apps for her? I found the boy and the girl are not the same,she doesn’t like game as Angry birds,she likes app that has good story and beautiful scene , similar to ”winter forest ” ,tell me some app like this.

    Did you look in the iPad Apps forum? Questions similar to yours come up regularly there since it is designed specifically for iPad Apps.

    Well, first, you're not going to buy your daughter's happiness with iPad apps. :D

    Anyway, when my daughter (who's nearly 5) plays with our tablets, she gravitates to the apps that allow her to be creative: coloring apps like Drawing Pad, especially. Garageband on the Mini (which she is very rarely allowed to use) and a piano app on our old slow Android tablet (which she is allowed to use more often).

    The App Store has an entire section dedicated to apps for kids. Try browsing that.

    How about playing with your daughter, reading with your daughter, going for a walk with your daughter, watching a movie with your daughter, etc.

    Your daughter probably doesn't want you replaced with an iPad.

    So you mean to tell me that you can't buy love? I thought there was an app for that.

    Ah yes, Christmas, the day of the year where people blow all their money, get into serious debt, and at the end of the day no one is happier than they were the day before.

    I have to agree with the other posters. If your daughter is unhappy and your first thought is "what can I buy her?", you are going down the wrong road.

    Spend time with her, talk to her, take her to the zoo and talk about the animals.

    I have a strange suspicion that someone is going to come along in the next 12 hours or so (daytime in China, anyway), with the "perfect" app that will greatly please the OP.

    Someone get the popcorn going....

    Regards,

    "There are people much worse off than you rendering all your feelings completely invalid!"

    You are the worst kind of person.

    I'm not a dad. But I have a 8 year old sister.

    What can I say you... teach your little girl that bad moods ust because holidays are over are just stupid. Teach her how to grow in a world full of bad things, bad moods....

    I think you don't need a app for that, that is just parenting.

    She is 6.

    Tell her to go to her room and memorize the multiplication table.

    That's what my dad told me to do at 6.

    I doubt the OP will understand the sarcasm based on the very poor english and grammar. But yeah, the gist of the post seems to be "Hey I dont want to be a parent, help me keep my kid occupied". But this could also be lost in translation because of language barriers.

    "The Game of Life for iPad". This is a game the two of you can take turns and play together just like the classic board game I use to play as a kid.

    Good to see I'm not the only one who had to do that, lol.


    And I agree, if your daughter is sad about not getting presents anymore, then you have a problem on your hands.
    If she's just sad in general, some quality TLC should do it.

    And try looking in the kids section on the App Store.

    The good thing is that my dad offered me $100 if I memorized it. $100 is good encouragement. $100 is a lot of money at the age of 6. Lots of candy and popsicles. Haha..
