Monkey Math School Sunshine (best Android apps for kids)
THUP Games makes terrific apps for Android and iPad/iPhone. They include lots of fun, educational mini-games and a monkey host that's FULL of energy.
I've already written about Monkey Preschool Lunchbox and today I'm featuring Monkey Math School Sunshine. We gave this app five stars and we do that very rarely. It's well worth $1.99. Rachel bottomed lined it this way: Another 5-star offering from Thup. Makes early math-concept learning fun for kids ages 3-6
The app includes nine interactive mini-games that teach kids about sequencing, patterns, counting, adding and subtracting.
Join your child's favorite monkey in math games and activities in a playfully designed beach-themed world.
Monkey Math School Sunshine allows your child to build fundamental math skills while they are endlessly entertained. Your child will count, add and sort their way through engaging games with uninterrupted play.
For ages 3 to 6.

ADD IT UP and TAKE IT AWAY
Use your addition and subtraction skills to solve math problems. Trusty animated crab assistants supply multiple-choice options.
Monkey has a problem: Objects keep popping out if his bucket, creating a pattern - but one piece is missing! Help the monkey by completing the pattern with the choices provided.
Is it an octagon? Or maybe a hexagon? Count each side of these shapes to help Monkey figure it out.
Monkey has a group of numbers in the right order, but some are missing. Help him complete the sequence with the correct numbers.
Monkey loves to blow bubbles, but when he does, groups of shells, fish or turtles are inside each bubble! Use your expertise to figure out which bubble has either the most or least objects inside.
Which bubble has the bigger number? Which bubble has the smaller one? Help Monkey figure it out by popping the correct bubble.
