5 Positive iPad Apps for Kids


What it is: strictly kid-appropriate videos from YouTube

How it works: Kids choose from six categories to browse available videos. Each video has a thumbnail photo, so the child may recognize the Speed Racer cartoon before knowing how to spell it or learn to associate the Eiffel Tower icon with a video of France.

Why we like it: All videos are from YouTube, but they're selected by parents and editors and placed into categories like animals, people, places, fun shows, learn and music. Because the videos are prescreened, a mom could let her child wheel through the videos for hours unsupervised, if she so chooses. WeetWoo! is convenient, too -- much easier than loading DVDs.
