      Another really great Iphone app for kids and parents is called "Clean up your Room" ( You pick a reward, set the timer, and watch your kids--especially little ones, like my three year old--pick up their toys in minutes flat. If they get it clean before time runs out (which by the way, is actually music which gets faster and more exciting as the timer runs out) , they get to SHAKE! the phone and their reward appears like magic. My kids absolutely freak out over this, and I love it because the living room is Lego-free at last! :)
