Music and Media Playing Apps


Children learn best when they are interactive and engaged. Have a program that is collaborating with your child to encourage them to play, think and learn while having fun. Your child will have fun playing these apps while building, hand eye coordination, fine motor skills, verbal/language skills such as speaking, making sounds, and singing, observing, experimenting and using tools and technology.
