Smart New Apps for Preschoolers


Attention, busy parents who need a breather. Wait, that’s all of you! JumpStart has just come out with two new apps that’ll keep the kiddos busy while actually teaching them something.

With the JumpStart Preschool Magic of Learning Volume 1 iPad app ($2.99, iTunes store), your preschooler joins Frankie the dog in four games -- Bug catcher, Present Search, Matching Duckies, and Barnyard Fun -- designed to teach math, pre-reading, and critical thinking skills. Bonus: After mastering each game, your child will earn secret codes that unlock prizes at The second app, JumpStart Punk Punk Blitz, is totally free and will be available soon on both iPad and iPhone. It includes three memory-testing games -- Swirl, Bomb, and Clock (match up the "Punks" before time runs out!).
