Busy Wheels: Сity Bus
by Nravo Kids
Welcome to Busy Wheels World! City Bus is on the road, ready to bring all passengers to their destinations. In this game for preschoolers, a player has to drive the bus, explore the city map, follow traffic rules and find the best route to accomplish the mission. The game includes nine levels with gradually more complex missions (bigger map, longer route, different types of passengers, and additional stops).

Explore a colorful landscape and follow short animated stories about instruments, notes and audio samples. All stories are presented through audio and animation, so children of all ages can explore the app – even those without reading skills. Children can also make their own music by playing piano or percussion instruments.
Math Bakery 1 – Start Counting
by Pi Education
Math Bakery is a fun way to learn math for children ages 4 to 8. It’s just like having your own private teacher helping, encouraging and correcting. Even toddlers learn to quickly to add and subtract by helping daddy (the baker) produce cookies in time for Christmas.

Kids, toddlers, and babies love Puzzingo! Its many puzzles are full of interactivity, animations, and sounds for repeat learning and play. Unlike jigsaw puzzles, every Puzzingo puzzle piece is named, so preschool children, toddlers, and babies will build vocabulary while playing. Puzzingo supports learning in many languages, including English, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, and UK English.
An Educational Playground
ABA Science Play makes playgrounds that combine play with science concepts.
Interactive Toys That Take iPad Learning to the Next Level
