Most children learn about the farm from none other than the famous children's classic, Old MacDonald Had a Farm. The app Old MacDonald Songs For Kids does more than just teach about the farm, it introduces your kids to 24 animals with two new versions of the old time classic!
Join Farmer MacDonald at the circus and in the jungle with Old MacDonald Songs For Kids by Touchzing Media , a musical app for iOS devices -iPad, iPhone and iPod - that features the famous children's classic song, with a few additional animals thrown in for fun.
Have a look:
This version of the app also has old MacDonald hanging out at the circus and in the jungle. Young children will enjoy the familiarity of their favorite song mixed with the busy animations and new animals. This app is incredibly easy to navigate and works well for very young children.
The app opens to the farm, the circus, or the jungle icons. At the time of this review, the farm was free to try and the circus and jungle versions were available through an in-app purchase.
Simply tap the icon to start the music. Each song continues through many different animals. Join Old MacDonald as he goes through the typical farm animals plus a few new friends. The animals are doing funny things in the animations. From bears dancing to pigs drumming, the animals are all busy. Children can tap the screen to elicit animations on some of the screens.
What Fun Educational Apps Liked
My daughter is a big fan of Old MacDonald. She thoroughly enjoyed the music. I liked that the songs were longer than normal. This made it so that she could use the app independently for a few minutes without me having to sit with her.
She liked the animations because they were busy, while I could've done with the more traditional animals. I also liked the circus and the jungle renditions. The lyrics didn't always seem to fit, and the sounds were sometimes a little bit off, but I enjoyed the effort made to create new versions of a classic favorite. I specifically liked that the circus version taught children about different aspects of the circus like the tight rope and the clowns, not just animals.
Overall, Old MacDonald Songs For Kids was a good app for young children who enjoy these songs. The longer versions of the songs make it so that children can enjoy the music while parents get a little bit done around the house.
Old MacDonald Songs For Kids is available for downlaod via the iTunes App Store - iOS Universal and soon for Android devices via Google Play.
RRP - Free to download with Farm for Free
Addtional songs via in-app-purchase
