Hopster – Children’s Development App Review

Many young children have access to some kind of tablet. To begin with when baby girl was around 20 months old, I thought she was far too young to use a tablet. Now I can see how beneficial it was to start her at that age. She is nearly 30 months old and has learnt loads from her Amazon Fire tablet. Such as shapes, colours and fruit (she has certain favourite games!)

When Hopster asked us to have a look at their kids learning app, I thought it would be great for her to look at some different games, online books, music and shows.
