Baby's Musical Hands is an award-winning musical toy for babies and toddlers for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch.
As a game designer and developer, I love my iOS devices. But as a new father, I realized how much my son loves them too. I decided I could put my experience developing for iOS to use, and build an app for my son to play with. Baby's Musical Hands was born!

Baby's Musical Hands features 15 brightly colored squares that your baby can touch. Red squares make drum sounds, yellow squares play piano notes, and blue squares play guitar notes.
Every time your baby touches the screen, colorful stars will burst from their fingers. Watch them delight in the audio and visual feedback!
Baby's Musical Hands supports full multi-touch, meaning your baby gets the kind of feedback they expect when touching the screen.
I'd love to hear from you if your son or daughter loves Baby's Musical Hands as much as mine!

Ratings and Reviews
My 5 month old boy loves it! The bright colours easily capture his attention and he gets so excited every time he taps the screen.
My nearly 13 month old loves this app - he bangs with both hands, turns away, then bangs again and looks so delighted! Definitely recommend for this age and younger (and older I'm sure). Daddy quite enjoys it too :)
Cute, but more needed
Cute with some great potential. Is there a way to lock the screen so baby's erratic swiping doesn't immediately keep closing the app or jumping to another one? If not, it'd be really handy. Maybe a menu of other sounds and colours too.
I'd say generally it needs to take that next step, but you're a new father, so I get your time is precious. Nice start though.
