Max & Ruby's Toymaker







This app is great for any Max & Ruby fan. A child can choose to create either a robot for Max or a doll for Ruby. For either one there are dozens of choices for all of the parts. There are literally hundreds of combinations which will keep any child busy for quite awhile!  Once the creation is complete, you are given the option to take a picture and save it in the toy gallery, or you can start over and make something new.

ABC Wildlife

ABC Wildlife is a great app that will appeal to toddlers and preschoolers. Toddlers will like being able to "color in" real pictures of all sorts of exotic wildlife. Preschoolers will enjoy that too, but there is also an added component where an older child can practice spelling each animal's name. The best part about this app is that there are very nice pictures of actual animals, no cartoons!
