Best Kindle Fire Apps for Toddlers

Updated on May 9, 2012

I can't tell you how many times my Kindle Fire has saved my sanity. It has become my secret weapon for keeping my daughter busy on long car rides, in line at the supermarket or while I get dinner ready. If your toddler has taken over your Kindle Fire for similar purposes, here are some fun, educational apps that will keep your child busy while teaching important skills at the same time.

Kids Mode: Kids Games+ Child Lock

The only drawback to this app is that internet is required to use it. Other than that, it offers everything you need in an educational app for children 2-8. You begin by creating a profile for each of your children. It then loads dozens of age appropriate games and educational videos that teach language, math and social skills. The child lock feature means that once the app is started, your child is locked away from the rest of your Fire. The initial app is free, but for a fee you gain access to additional parental controls, such as the ability to block certain characters or sites.

Alphabet Car

This app puts your child in the drivers seat. Holding the Kindle Fire like a steering wheel, kids drive over letters to form words. Once a word is spelled, it is pronounced and a related picture is shown. There are over 40 levels to explore. Kids unlock new cars as they progress so they are continually motivated to keep trying.

Monkey Preschool Lunchbox

Short, repetitive games that teach letters, numbers, colors and shapes are reinforced by a lovable, acrobatic monkey who cheers and flips for right answers. The games don't get progressively harder but that won't stop your child from wanting to play over and over.

Kids ABC Letters

This is a simple app to teach recognition of letters to your child. A fishing game and a puzzle game help them learn to recognize upper and lowercase letters.

Kids Doodle- Movie Kids Drawing

This app may not be particularly educational but it provides a great creative outlet for your child. The bright neon colors are lots of fun, and the interface is easy so kids won't be frustrated with trying to get it to work. They can replay their drawings later or save them so you can share them with you Facebook friends. A quick shake of the device clears the screen so they can begin again.
