This is one of the most unique apps I have seen at the app store. The goal of the game is to walk a man to a target in each screen and level. You can draw and erase paths and you need to avoid moving obstacles. It helps to develop problem solving skills since as the levels gets higher it becomes much harder to avoid obstacles and get to the target. Even though my iKid is young and can only finish 3-4 levels without my help, it has been great fun to play this and find paths together. See reviews and get the app here.

This application displays mazes and let you follow through it with you finger, making great light and sound effects. This is originally not a kids application but my kid found it very engaging and entertaining. Click here for the app.

This application displays a basketball court and where with a slight up-and-down motion of the iPhone you can shoot the ball. Even though this application goes against my rule of ‘no motion controlled apps so that my kid is not used to shaking the iPhone’, it was super entertaining my 3 year old, and surprisingly educational at the same time. Because the app displays his score, he was very motivated by it. I think now he understands that 3 basket + 1 more equals to 4. You can get it here.
