    "This is an adorable way to get your baby to learn animal sounds. Psychologists tell us that learning animal sounds helps the brain develop twelve percent faster than learning from mute animals like sloth or goldfish. This app is for smart babies, not dumb babies. I love it so, so much."

    "My ten month old baby is fussy quite a bit. She needs a lot of distractions to keep quiet so I am constantly looking for good apps. Baby's Musical Hands has been a life saver when it comes to keeping my little one distracted. If you don't already have this app go check it out now."

    "Teach Your Monster to Read is a great app for toddlers and kids ages 4+. I don't think it's necessarily appropriate for babies during their first year. However, there are many levels where babies can be introduced to sounds and pictures in order to enrich their love for learning when they are at an age to understand."

    "I don't think that this is the best app for babies during their first year, I feel that more real interaction is important and not an app. I also think this is geared more to a toddler not an infant. "

    "This is a great early childhood development app. It's colorful, it's musical, it's educational, it's easy. I use this to play with my young infant, and she's mesmerized by the colors and songs. As she gets older, she learns its patterns and has even started interacting with it herself - an amazing achievement and something every parent cherishes when they first see it. Try it for yourself if you have very young children - you'll never go back to games of peekaboo again!"
