These days things are a little different than they were a year ago – the apps I used to download were shopping apps, games, and recipes. Now who has time for shopping, playing games or even cooking when you have a one year old? Not this girl, but I love every minute of my crazy working mom life. So what I have decided to do is start a series of blogs with recommended apps for children.
Technology has changed since I was a kid, so with everything else I do in my job to stay up with the times, I do at home as well. Meaning my one year old knows how to work an iPad and the iPhone. This could be very bad or very good depending on how you look at it. There are a lot of educational apps out there, and as he gets older I plan on utilizing them. This first app recommendation isn’t as much educational as it is entertaining, but it’s a must-have.
Disney Channel has produced an app for each of its channels, where you can watch full episodes of the shows they offer. Our favorite is Watch Disney Junior, featuring some of their most popular shows like Jake and the Never Land Pirates, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Doc McStuffins, and Special Agent OSO.  They all have lessons to learn and positive messages, and best of all MY baby loves it! It even helped teach him how to wave! He waves at the beginning and end at Mickey in Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. As any parent knows, anything that can help pass the time at the doctor’s office, on a car ride or when you’re out and about is GOLD!

So my advice, go to your app store and download Watch Disney Junior. Stay tuned for my next app recommendation.
