ScreenTime For Kids - KidloLand App Review.

2:23:00 PM Ayesha Farhad 34 Comments

There is a general confusion on whether to give your child some screen time or not. Whether to limit them for an hour or let them use for more than an hour through out the day. Parents all over the world have a constant worry about technology creating a change in their and the children lives.

My not-so-little child is now three and he loves exploring the iPad. And since he still hasn't gotten a grip on writing with a pencil, we are constantly finding apps that will increase his sensory play and motor skills.

KidloLand is one of the applications that my son has a slightly love and hate relationship with. He loves the app so much that he will spend a whole hour using the it and completely forget to use Youtube kids to watch Ben & Holly.

As a parent, you have to sit down one night and explore the app yourself. Download everything properly and get to know the app. I believe every parent should explore ANY application they download for the children. When I say that this application is loaded, I really mean it. It is PROPERLY loaded with 1000+ activities for kids including 95+ classic nursery rhymes and more than 300+ activities for toddlers. It is aimed for children aged 0-5 years old but a lot of older children like to play along too.

My Verdict?

The best thing about this application is that you can use the features offline. This works for me because one, I don't have to give him my phone to use the data to access the application and secondly he doesn't have access to youtube kids to watch a lot of apparently child friendly but trashy video. But instead he uses the application to learn phonics, listen to stories, tracing alphabets that increase his educational qualities.



My Son's Verdict?

When I said that Azlan has a love hate relationship with this application, I meant that the application is slightly slower than the rest of the applications. The tracing of the alphabets is a little bit too slow for Azlan and he gets bored of dragging his fingers all the time to complete the alphabet. So that is the only thing that he doesn't really like.

Because I have introduced story time to Azlan, he loves reading them himself (he apparently repeats the stories like a parrot). But with this application, he can listen to stories and I tell you, he LOVES to listen to the stories, which also gives me a breather and ideas for bedtime stories.
He loves creating the snow man, decorating the christmas tree, popping shapes, opening boxes full of surprises learning months and weeks of the year and a lot more.

Total Verdict?

You have GOT to get this application! I have never been so happy with screen time! 

You can use these links to download the application whether you are an iOs user or an android user:

  1. My kids are all too old for this app now, but sounds like a great app for those with younger children and one I would have got for mine at that age x

  2. I don't have any children, however I think this is a great idea. My other half is a tech mad man so I know our children will be glued to the iPad!

  4. This sounds like a wonderful app, it's amazing to me my 6 year old grandson knows more about the ipad than I do and the kid has been reading or knows how to search for the last couple of years. crazy, I'm going to share this with my daughter to look up for him as something constructive rather than minecraft.

  10. Wow that is a whole load of activities on one app! I agree with some screen time as long as we as parents are on hand to make sure it doesn't go on for too long. There's so much to be learned from littlies using technology.

  11. That's great! I have a nephew, but he is very tiny still about 3-4 months old so it will be a while until he is using these types of games. Great to know that they are out there!!!

  27. It still baffles me how kids today all know how to use ipads and phones. I never had any of this so not sure how much I'll use it for mine. My sister would love this for my niece though!

  28. Sounds like a brilliant app for kids, my youngest daughter would enjoy this I think

  29. I totally agree with you that parents need to fully understand an app their child is using no matter what age they are and I love that you can use this offline. One of my bug bear is apps that use data all the time

  30. My folks try to limit my screen time as much as possible, good that you can use it offline - it looks really colourful and bright

  31. Educational apps are the way to go but with moderation of course. Many kids are way too strapped to tablets/mobile devices these days.

    And you are right, use them with him while making sure you've sifted through the content initially after download.

  32. This looks like a fun app. My baby is only 17 months now and I am still debating on screen time. I had written a post earlier about screen time.

    Apps that increase motor skills are a win win isn't it?
