My boys love visiting my dad. Not only because they love being around him and love getting spoilt, but because he has unlimited wifi access and they get to watch YouTube videos the entire time they’re there. I have a problem with this as that is all they seem to do, watch videos of other children open gifts, or eggs, or whatever it is they open. I obviously monitor what they’re watching but you will often hear me tell them to put the damn tablet down and go play outside. They aren’t learning anything by watching those videos and it works on my damn nerves that my dad just hands the tablets over whenever they ask.
So when I was contacted by Kidloland with a 1 month subscription in exchange for a review, I jumped at the chance. Honestly, I had no idea what Kidloland was. I’ve since fallen in love with them as it is an app for toddlers and pre-school children that has nursery rhymes, games and baby songs.
I let Ethan loose on the app and was astounded by how fascinated he found it. He loved almost all the sing-along games and nursery rhymes. But the app has so many topics, including vehicles, numbers, shapes, fruit and veg, phonics, making it ideal for any age. I absolutely loved the Christmas theme, with songs and carols and especially at this time of the year, when I’m trying to keep the magic alive for the boys.
There are 3 kinds of subscription plans.

For Android devices:
There are 2 subscription plans.

b) 1 year subscription plan
You do need to download the content within the different topics but once it’s on your device, it’s available without an internet connection. This does however take up a bit of of your storage space but I think it’s a small price to pay to keep your little ones entertained (and get them learning at the same time). The subscription costs $4.99 (about R68.00) a month and you get access to 1000’s of nursery rhymes, songs, stories and interactive activities.
I’d definitely be continuing our subscription. Have you heard of Kidloland? What do you think?
