Ratings and Reviews
Great distraction for toddlers
This is essentially a digital storybook with music for little kids. My 2-year-old daughter enjoys it a lot, and the interactive features (e.g., sliding the bus doors open and shut) are simple enough to pick up quickly. I use this frequently at restaurants and other public places when my daughter gets antsy/bored and I need to settle her down with a distraction. Recommended (along with other apps from Duck Duck Moose, like Old MacDonald).
P.S. The latest update fixed my only pet peeve about the program by allowing removal of the music control button (which is easy to press by accident and opens a kid-unfriendly menu).
I always use khan academy 😊
Excellent App for Toddlers
Duck Duck Moose has some really cool apps that very well illustrated. You can search for just that company in the App Store and pull up what they have. The Bus app is great for the 1½ to 3 year old set—right at their ability and comprehension level. The app goes through the verses of the song. Each verse has its own page, and on each page there are several things to touch. There are also some added creative versus such as "The baker on the bus says have some cake..." On the baker's page, you touch the baker to make him offer some cupcakes. Touch the frog to have his tongue come out and steal a cupcake. The monkey drops down from the roof of the bus and takes a cupcake. It is set to some nice music, and there are excellent options. Five languages are offered, including male and female options for English, plus creative options like piano trio, duet, kazoo, and gibberish. The best feature of the whole app though is that you can record yourself singing the song! It takes you through verse by verse and records you singing along to the music. Especially great for daddies and mommies who travel!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
