Best Apps for Two-Year-Olds
I have two sons: Philip (4) and Noah (2). Whenever I meet other parents at Philip’s school, they always ask me, “What are the best iPad apps that I can get for my juniors?” So in March 2013, I compiled a list of iPad apps that I would personally recommend to anyone with a two-year-old toddler.
I feel that a curated list like this is a good resource for parents everywhere. That is why I am determined to update it with new apps and possibly create other lists that may be helpful to other parents. Taking hints from our Best Apps for Kids 2014 list, I decided to organize the apps based on how your juniors would use them.
Note: If your junior is 18 months old or younger, you might want to check our Best Apps for One-Year-Olds list. And if your junior is 30 months old or older, you might also want to check our Best Apps for Three-Year-Olds list.
