Now includes three new animals, an updated look, and new animations!

Inside a little bouncing barn, friendly farm animals are waiting to pop out and surprise your little one. Try and guess who they are; tap the doors to find out!

Work with your child to learn the names of animals and hear the sounds they make. Younger children will love opening the barn doors to find a new animal animation, as they learn about cause and effect and become familiar with animal names and sounds. Older children will enjoy guessing animals by sound, then seeing the animal names, which helps develop early literacy skills.

Multiple Language Features:
Press the Language button on the Options screen to try them out.

--Choose from the built-in narrators: child's voice in English; adult's voice in English or Spanish.
--Record your own voice: We added this feature so parents, children, and visiting relatives and friends can capture their own voices and star in Peekaboo Barn. Now you can record the animal names in your native language--or grandma's voice, or grandpa's--and, if you're recording a new language, you can save the appropriate written version too, and both will show up the next time you play. (Please note, we can only support the writing systems that are supported by your device.)
--Additional languages included with purchase: Mandarin, Cantonese, Hindi, Japanese, Swedish, Dutch, Italian, German, French and UK English.

One of the first apps to be released for toddlers, since 2008 Peekaboo Barn has been downloaded over half a million times, and played over 70 million times worldwide. It has been a top 20 educational game on the iTunes store nearly every day since its launch, and has been featured by Apple often. It won The Best Toddler App Ever award in 2009, and was named one of the top 50 iPhone apps for kids by in 2010 and 2011. It is recommended by The New York Times, MSNBC, USA Today, Wired, Telegraph UK, Ireland’s The Independent, Parents Magazine, and the Washington Post.

Peekaboo Barn was made for you and your toddler by artists and educators, not marketers, robots, or companies repackaging clip art. Our team has backgrounds in cognitive science and child development, and we’ve worked in educational media everywhere from Penguin USA to the Smithsonian Institution. When you could really use a safe distraction--in airports, restaurants, and waiting rooms--or you'd like to try something new with your little genius, Peekaboo Barn is the educational, artful solution. Enjoy!

Watch you wee one's eyes light up

My 9 month old loves this app more than any other I've got. He somehow knows how and when to touch the screen to progress through the game, which is entirely down to the clever sound and animation cues. The default kid's voice is just lovely, and it's great that you can record other languages for bilingual bairns. A bit lacking on variety (there are maybe 12 animals), and lots of repetition, but the wee lad doesn't seem to mind. He smiles every time he hears the rooster, and loves it when the night falls. A simple game but honed to perfection. We tried Peekaboo Forest, but it doesn't hold his attention like this does. Only thing lacking is a thick brummie accent.

This app is brilliant my 2yr old son can get enough of it. He is learning to repeat the animal names! He also dances along to the nursery rhyme tune please please make some more applications of this sort including nursery rhymes. I know I would never get a chance with my phone but it's worth it!

Brilliant kids app!!!!

My one year old daughter loves this app - it's really simple for her to use & over time I'm sure she'll learn the animals through using it - we use it just before going to bed amongst her other stories... Love it!!! Looking forward
To the next app ;)
