    Any recommendation to keep a toddler entertained for a while?
    Ours seems to be keen on:
    Kid art (finger drawing; cartoon stamps)
    Lunchbox (learning to count; memory game; colour; puzzles)

    Pity a Youtube download applications is not available (on appstore or without a jailbreak)

    A friend of mine has a grand-child now 18 months old. He keeps Dora the Explorer on his iPad. He said that, even 4 months ago, the kiddo could turn on the iPad, swish to the proper page and launch the app...all without adult assistance. (His daughter, the child's mother, had to learn from the child.) He said the child loves that app.
     
  7. When your traveling kids are starting to droop, introduce some fun kids app. My cousin has this ‘The Talking Sock’ app, wherein you will choose from one of four giant sock puppets. The puppet fills your screen and is sensitive to the sounds around it; so if you sing, the puppet opens its mouth and joins in. it is silly and mesmerizing, especially when you hide your face behind your iPad to let the puppet do your talking.

    I'd suggest Talking Tom 2 as well as any of the other Talking series from the same publisher. The app is basically a kitten that purrs when you pet it, yells when you hit it, and repeats whatever you say in a high pitched voice. I watched a two year old play with that for two hours until he was so tired from laughing he passed right out! There's some other activities the cat participates in with a dog in the mix, but so far I've seen a few kids that sit in front of it and just crack up laughing.

    The interactive books (which are apps not books) "Cinderella" and "the Monster at the end of this book" are wonderful. Cinderella has her playing pingpong with prince charming at the end so if you are over the princess thing (or not) it isn't too much.
