What’s App?

Morning Man

I always love stumbling across a new App and this week I have found three superb ones!

I’m not naturally a morning person but I have begrudgingly become used to them with a husband that has his alarm set for 5:30am most mornings to go to work, and two little people who are early risers.  I struggle to bounce out of bed each morning but recently came across The Morning Man Alarm Clock. I now wake to a gentle reminder in French that it is time to get up!  Love it!

THE MORNING MAN® Alarm Clock App is the best way to wake up and start your day. Listen to sweet and romantic voices from around the globe waking you up every morning! Why have a loud chirp or a bell as an alarm when you could wake up with a real Morning Man®?

When doing the grocery shopping or some other task that requires James to be engaged in some form of entertainment/learning, I reach for my phone to distract him from toppling all the apples from the display.  I know, I know – I’m not the perfect Mum, but I do find at times a good App is a godsend for me to get in and get the job done, without a grizzling toddler to boot.

My good friend Cherida has just been in Europe with her young family for four months and advised that Thinkrolls and Mini Ocean Swimmer were winners on long train/plane trips.  I uploaded these little numbers and James is engrossed!  At least I don’t feel too guilty as they certainly have learning outcomes for little fingers and their fine motor skills (that’s what I tell myself anyway)!  xx


Set your child’s mind in motion. Thinkrolls are the 22 hilarious characters in this educational app that’s one part rolling ball platformer, one part physics puzzler and 100% irresistible for kids 3-8.




Laugh out loud as you explore a magical underwater world with Fins the fish. Invite Fins out to play and let the adventures begin. Guide Fins through the water and discover dozens of fun surprises. Dive into sunken treasure, meet mysterious monsters and enjoy a treat at an underwater ice cream stand. Based on the wildly popular Sago Mini Forest Flyer, this open-ended play experience is sure to delight.
