Are you thinking what I’m thinking B1?

Probably not, because who would have thought that ABC2’s Bananas in Pyjamas now have their own apps!  Out now for the summer holiday break.  Bananas Pyjamas Beach Fun ($1.99 AUD) and Pyjamas Say Cheese ($2.99AUD) Designed for kids aged 2 to 4 years old.

These very simple and cheap apps are fairly easy for the little ones to navigate, and if they can’t they can just poke at the screen until something happens (isn’t that how everyones kids drive their iPods?)

The Beach Fun app is great prep for a trip to the beach, the kids get to apply sunblock, put on hats and sunnies or build a sandcastle.  They can knock down the sandcastle too.  I thought this app could be developed a little further, maybe they could go play on the beach or swim, but other than that it’s a good little app.

Say Cheese is a camera app, and who hasn’t got a toddler who loves to take a hundred photos of themselves with Mums iPhone, my kids love this one.  It has 10 picture frames for the kids to choose from, and then they can take their picture along with the Bananas.  Once a picture is taken you can dress yourself up in hats and glasses, or add extra characters and objects and save the resulting picture.  The Bananas commentate while you take the photo, which my kids thought was hilarious.  Check out an image of Georgie below, the apps biggest fan 🙂

Click on the images if you’d like to be taken to iTunes to download the apps 🙂

    Have to be Giggle and Hoot – Cooper always insists on going to bed when Hoot starts to look after us all at night which saves us the old “Go to bed Now” moment and guarantees a happy night sleep for Cooper

  2. Hate CGI bananas! What is wrong with getting out of work actors to wear large banana costumes to make a 3 minute story about their misadventures with some teddies and a large rat?
