Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Piano is a nice way to bed time. I used it with my little nice and she was fascinated. Listening to the song and watching the lighted piano keys calmed her down. The next morning we went on with Old Mac Donald Piano. She really enjoyed all aspect of these 2 great musical apps. Tapping on all the key notes allowed her to discover the sound of each note. What was also great is that kids tap note on a piano keypad and can discover the sound each note on a piano but also on a violin, bells, banjo, xylophone, harp, and flute. It helps kids recognize the sound of various instruments.
Ideal to encourage your toddlers or preschooler to start learning music. Play it together or let them discover, either way it will capture their attention for a while. It is the type of app that your little ones will love playing over and over.
Also note that both music apps offer the karaoke lyrics in English, French &and Spanish
