Toddler Apps: Zoo Train

Hercules has been nuts about alphabet trains lately and he stumbled on this one while we were searching for alphabet train songs on Youtube. There are actually quite a number of gems in there if you look around – one of Hercules’ favourites is Shawn the Train by Coilbook. KidsTV123 is another of our favourite channels.

I digress… So Hercules stumbled on an app review for Zoo Train by Busy Bee Studios. He was so intrigued by the review that I decided to get him the app. So I finally got around to exploring it and here’s what it’s about…

It’s a fun app that’s easy for young children to play on their own. It’s entertaining and educational and a good one for the kids because it features animals and trains – two popular subjects with children. The app is designed for both iPad and iPhone and costs $1.99 at the iTunes store.
