Polly Poodle BABY FLASHCARDS

"A brilliantly simple and wonderfully funny flashcard book guaranteed to have little ones giggling! Thankyou for over 50,000 downloads! Now with added children's voices which read out the text (so cute) and a menu button on each page. Look out for the update soon which will feature noisy trucks, trains and cars! I designed this app purely for my 1 year old daughter, as I was struggling to find something which would both entertain and educate on the app store. I knew she liked animals and babies so I thought I'd start with those, and sure enough she loved it, although I must say her favourite is the baby section. She laughs her head off every time! I hope your little one enjoys it just as much."
