Pirate Scribblebeard (best Android apps for kids - has good free version)

Rated 4.5 stars at Smart Apps For Kids, Ron had this to say about Pirate Scribblebeard's Treasure:
All three of my kids, including the 10-year old, really enjoyed Kidoodle: Pirate Scribblebeard's Treasure, and I've even selected toddler as a possible age group for this app because I think toddlers would enjoy watching it and doing what they are capable of. So, there's a wide range of appeal here. Strongly recommended!

I just love this app! My children's drawings are so precious to me, and I hope my hoarding all that paper shows them how valuable their creativity is. Pirate Scribblebeard's Treasure is probably a much more eco-friendly way of giving my children that same feeling, as well as reducing the fire hazard risk in our home. Drawing pages have already been started, to give your children a drawing prompt. They then complete the picture which then is animated.

The lite version comes with a handful of pages, with the option to upgrade to the full version of more than a dozen pages. The drawing tools are quite basic, including two thicknesses of pen and eight different colors but the minimal implements encourage maximum imagination. This is another great app to practice stylus use with, to improve pencil grip and strengthen fine motor muscles. You will not be disappointed.
