So awesome!!

I am a music teacher and downloaded a bunch of educational apps to see which I could utilize. My boyfriend and I sat down and went over each one, deleting the ones which weren't up to snuff. We got to Monkey Drum and probably spent about 20 minutes playing with it ourselves!! It's like a drum machine for kids...and I love it! It's not the most musically educational app, but makes the kids want to play music and explore different avenues. Super cute and great interface...I love it!

Best app ever!

I work with kids with special needs, and every one of them loves this app! I often use it as a reward since it is fun, but they are still working on skills like waiting and turn taking. I love seeing their faces when they realize the monkey is playing what they did! And one the other day started clapping along with the monkey. I love it!!!
