I think we all know by now that technology is pretty awesome, as well as a great educational aid. Thanks to the beauty of touch based controls, very young children can easily reap the benefits from certain apps. One potentially ideal app for children aged 3 and up is CookieCoo Dancing Star.
CookieCoo Dancing Star is all about teaching kids to sing and play along with a number of different educational songs from the Hokey Pokey to Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes to other classics like Mary Had a Little Lamb and I Can Sing a Rainbow, available through an in-app purchase.
The songs teach kids some valuable tips and they also get to improve their motor skills as they have to match the rhythm on screen. Best of all, they'll have fun doing it!
CookieCoo Dancing Star is priced at $0.99 for either the iPhone or iPad version. In-app purchases are then available to purchase extra song packs covering colors, animals, toys and numbers, each priced at $0.99.
