There’s also a fun New app for younger children!


PBS KIDS has released a new THOMAS & FRIENDS app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.THOMAS & FRIENDS Watch and Play is the first THOMAS & FRIENDS app to offer full-length episodes, in addition to games that promote key problem-solving skills and foster social-emotional growth for preschoolers. The app is available for $2.99 on the App Store.

I checked this one out briefly since my son is too old for Thomas & Friends but we both agree that it is great for preschool age children. I like that the games are more than just fun! They really do encourage learning skills that are important for young children.
