Best FREE Preschool iPhone apps

I don’t even need to own an iPhone to know how helpful a few strategically downloaded games can be when it comes to entertaining your child (or someone else’s!)  Here are one’s that I have downloaded on other people’s phones or that were recommended to me!

All the apps are free to download and have been kid tested and mommy approved!

*Make sure thought that before letting your child play the games, all default settings are as you expect.  Lately there have been a lot of articles about kid’s downloading full versions and automatically charging to their parent’s itunes account.  Don’t be caught with any surprise purchases!
