Review of Wheels on the Bus iPhone App

Wheels on the Bus

Wheels on the Bus

Have you ever needed a 5-minute diversion for a toddler in a doctor’s office, restaurant, or grocery line? Have you found yourself without crayons or toys just when you needed them most? Have you wished that you had something in your purse or pocket that would keep your child entertained for a few minutes when “I Spy” and the alphabet game have failed you?

If you happen to have an iPhone or iPod Touch, there’s an application you might like for just those moments. Wheels on the Bus is an interactive kid-friendly app available through the iTunes App Store.

It’s simple enough: It plays “Wheels on the Bus” in several languages (or your own voice, if you’re brave enough for that), and with each verse, there’s a brightly-colored picture that kids can tap or slide to make things happen.

The pictures are bright and clear, and the variety of languages and instruments for the song can break up the monotony if your five minutes turn into ten or twenty.

At $2.99, it’s a pretty cheap piece of insurance; all you need is to have your iPhone or iPod Touch available and you’ll be set.

The biggest problem for me was having two or more kids trying to play it at the same time; this is definitely best-suited to individual child-parent time. My six-year-old enjoyed it as much as my three-year-old.

Wheels on the Bus is found in the “Education” section of the iTunes Apps Store; you can find more information about it at DuckDuckMoose.
