My PlayHome Lite (best free Android apps for kids)
I used to treat my kids with fast food. Now I treat them with apps! My daughter has had hours of fun with this doll house app. She loves playing house, and I can use the app to teach her appropriate behaviors by role-playing the characters. There's a lite version for you to test before you buy, but trust me when I say you'll want to buy the full version! My daughter played with the lite version for months before I surprised her with the full version. The look on her face when she discovered the extra rooms was priceless!

Role-playing apps such as this one can be used to teach so much. Not only can you role-play events to teach appropriate behaviors, but a lot of key learning areas can be taught as well. In the kitchen, nutrition could be the focus, discussing healthy food options. In the bathroom, social studies could be the focus, discussing water usage's impact on the environment or developing countries' access to clean water. Science is the topic of discussion in the lounge room as the fish are taken care of and so on.
This has got to be one of the top ten must-have downloads for Android. Download it today!

My PlayHome is a doll house for the iGeneration.
Imagine a doll house where your child can use everything, even the closets, TV and shower. Where you can fry an egg and feed the family pizza. Where you can pour drinks, blow bubbles and turn out the lights.
Imagine a doll house where the pieces are impossible to lose and never break. A doll house which grows over time and where new accessories and rooms are given to you for free.
Imagine if it was designed so that even a 2 year old could use it, yet detailed enough to entertain an 8 year old.
Imagine a doll house that could excite and captivate your children for hours for less than the price of a cup of coffee....
My PlayHome is the original and best dolls house app. Massively interactive, your kids can explore and use everything in the house. The characters eat, sleep, shower, brush their teeth and more. Want the room to be darker? Close the drapes! Fancy a change in music? Pop a different CD into the stereo! No other doll house app comes close in interactivity, detail, ease of use and just plain fun!
