In a perfect world, we would have hours and hours to spend time creating educational and fun activities for our babies and toddlers. In reality, there are dishes and laundry to be done, as well as a myriad of other things.
When life gets hectic and you need your children to be entertained, yet also want their minds engaged and learning the Baby’s Brilliant App is the perfect solution.

 

The app features:

  • Movies: Full of everyday, common images from around the globe, the movies are accompanied by the music of famous composers that has been rerecorded soothing instruments. Most of the movies are narrated by children.
  • Music: a variety of classical recordings, inspirational, and popular children’s songs.
  • Night Lights: a combination of visuals and music designed to help your baby fall asleep. You can arrange the order of play, create a unique playlist, or loop your playlist up to 90 minutes!

In addition to entertaining your children at home, this app can be used on the go. The app is downloadable on iTunes and available for iPhones and iPads.

My daughter loved the inspirational songs.  After attempting to have her nap for about thirty minutes only to hear her climbing in and out of bed, talking, and jumping I put her in front of the app with some songs playing.  She instantly calmed and kept asking for more songs!  
It was wonderful.

Babys Brilliant

There are so many possibilities and uses for this app. It is even available in Spanish and Chinese.

I try to use sensory toys at home, but I do use my phone when we’re out and about and the kids need to be entertained for a bit.

My toddler likes to be a helper and help me out – he helps with the laundry (loading the washer and dryer) with my help (of course). He stays by me and plays with his cars if he can’t help me do the big stuff I need to.

I use a Disney DVD. I let them choose which one to watch….it never fails to do the trick.

I’m guilty of using the TV and tablet but we don’t have cable which is nice because I’ll play an episode and when it’s done that’s it.

Variety was the key. If they really wanted to watch a new movie, I would wait to share with them until I needed some time to myself :) LOL Sometimes it would be a craft and sometimes it would be a new program for the computer. My kids weren’t little during cell phones apps :) LOL As far as my grandson, he is pretty much happy when I give him the pile of blocks to play with to build and destroy! LOL
