Amazing Alex App Review on Cool Mom Tech

Amazing Alex

This app does a fantastic job of showing kids how everyday objects can be transformed into crazy fun machines right in their own rooms. It’s aimed more at grade schoolers, but a savvy preschooler will catch on just fine. ($0.99 on iOS and Google Play).

Dude, Where's My Water App Review on Cool Mom Tech

Dude, Where’s My Water?

We might just have as much fun as our kids do trying to get Swampy the water for his shower. And make sure to get the Dude, Where’s my Holiday? version which is updated as different holidays, like Valentine’s Day, approach. Even a year later, our kids still aren’t bored of this one. ($0.99 on iOS and Google Play)

Dr. Seuss app reviews on Cool Mom Tech

Dr. Seuss Apps

The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories is just one of the many Dr. Seuss apps from OceanHouse Media that our kids love. And much easier than lugging all those hardback books with us. ($8.99 on iOS and Google Play; prices of other apps vary)


Angry Birds Star Wars review on Cool Mom Tech

Angry Birds Star Wars

Just when I thought I was pretty much done with Angry Birds, Rovio launches Angry Birds Star Wars last year and my whole family is completely addicted all over again. Guilty pleasure?
