Like all mum’s before they have kids I swore I would never allow my child to watch TV for hours or play on my Iphone watching Kinder Eggs being unwrapped, but fast forward 4 years to Harry’s 1st half term holiday and add to the mix Autumn weather and mummy needed something to help entertain the Little Guy.
We have watched every Disney film known to man , carved pumpkins , baked cakes , read stories , visited the zoo , been on a bike ride , done a jigsaw ( you get my drift ) !!! So when I was contacted by KidloLand to review their new education app I snapped their hands off. The app is £29.99 for a year’s subscription which if I am honest is more than I would usually pay but you are getting 24 different activities within the 1 app so i feel it’s worth it. Harry is Dinosaur mad so he went straight to watching a phonics activity hosted by a big green T-Rex. (My hubby very cleverly purchased some child size headphones last month after the jazzy music that accompanies the Kinder Egg unwrapping on YouTube started to send us demented) So with his headphones on and the very friendly T-Rex teaching Harry the alphabet I was able to enjoy a cup of tea and catch up on ready my favourite blogs for 1/2 hour. It was like Mummy Nirvana 👍
Harry is like every little boy and loves being outside and running about but when it’s raining or I have to attempt to do housework I need something to keep him happy and if it’s educational it is a double win for me. Instead of the mindless trash that Harry normally has on the screen I was pleased to see him interacting with the activities and I happily joined in with the Sing-a-Long Christmas Carol activity. Fun for all the family.
I really like the KidloLand app and the huge amount of variety it has on offer. The only improvement I would suggest is it takes a couple of minutes to download a new activity and Harry did find this a little frustrating but it was another lesson leant as it taught him some patience. I would definitely give the app an 8/10 score and as I type this Harry is happily sat playing on the shapes & colours activity next to me.
