LEGO Duplo Peekaboo (best free Android apps for toddlers)
Recent opinion is now saying that young children can benefit from screen time, when the children are actively using the screen and the time is spent collaboratively. Lego Duplo Peekaboo is the perfect game to share with a toddler. It is short and sweet and provides a launching base for parents to help increase their child's vocabulary and develop critical thinking skills. Why not download and share Lego Duplo Peekaboo with your toddler today?
There are basically five screens in this app: the introduction where the animals run off and hide, one screen to find each of the three animal characters, then a final screen to create a Lego character. To find the hiding animal characters, the toddler simply drags a pile of Lego to look behind it. To find the first character, there are two piles to check behind, the second character has three piles and the final character is found behind one of four piles of Lego. The final "creating" screen involves the toddler tapping the head, body and base of a Lego character to choose from a range of possible options.
As toddlers are playing with this app, parents can talk about the different animals, where they might hide given their size, clues to look for (body parts sticking out), whether or not their expectations were met, and any similarities or differences between the different scenes. Toddlers love to play peekaboo and the thrill of finding the animals in different places every time will keep them coming back to play this app over and over. Enjoy!
APP DESCRIPTION ON GOOGLE PLAY
A classic hide and seek game for 1½-3 year old toddlers with our two LEGO® DUPLO® mascots Giraffe and Rabbit, and their new friend Teddy. (If you thought a Giraffe is too tall to hide behind a couple of bricks, think again.)
If you’re a parent of toddlers, you may have discovered that playing Peek a Boo (in real life) can be an endless source of entertainment. And what’s the best part? The thrill of finding the one who was hiding -- in crazy hiding places, of course.
Once toddlers have found the three sneaky friends in the game, they can build their own digital DUPLO trophy and start over, or pour out a bucket of their own bricks, and build places to hide from their older siblings. Or parents. (If you thought a toddler can’t hide behind a couple of bricks… well, you get the picture.)
LEGO® DUPLO® Peek a Boo is the latest in a series of web and app games for toddlers, based on Giraffe and Rabbit’s adventures in the land of DUPLO.
