Everyone's favorite monkey hits the farm--Curious George at the Zoo, Old Mac Donald's Farm (best Andriod Apps for kids)

Old Mac Donald had a......monkey? Well, no, but Curious George is headed to the farm and wherever he goes, fun is sure to follow. Let your toddler learn about animals, their natural habitats, and have some good clean fun along the way. This app is a great find for young children, teaching about farm animals in a fun way.

If you know anything about me (this is my second post, of course you don't), I typically roll my eyes at the very mention of "animal, zoo, Old MacDonald" when referencing a children's app. I think it's quite overdone and usually less than exciting. But, then along came this app. While I personally feel that Curious George makes anything and everything better, it's most true in this sweet app for preschoolers. 
Now, this isn't the entire story of Curious George, so if you're looking for that keep on searching. This is, however, a fun trip to the farm with the hairy primate, where your tot can do all sorts of things that you would never let happen in your own living room. Washing animals and feeding animals aren't chores here, they're a great time. Quick videos of real animals make the farm come to life, especially for those of you who only use the word "field" in relation to a sports team.
