Here’s a video of the triplets playing games on my old iPhone 3G, Gretchen’s iPhone 3Gs, and my iPhone 4. They have a pretty good selection of kids games that are fun and educational. Of course, there are some silly games, too. Some of their favorites are Toy Story 3 Memory Match, Wheels On The Bus, iPlay Phone, Balloonimals, and Peekaboo Barn.
KJ has really done the best so far with playing the games on his own. He’ll sit on the couch for a pretty good amount of time and play without any help. He even knows how to switch from one app to another. The girls still need a little help from time to time, but they’re getting better.
It occurred to me while watching the kids play, that, when it comes to using a computer, they may not even want to use a normal desktop computer. They may all want iPads, iPod Touches, or iPhones, or whatever the newest thing out is at the time. Even now, they show little interest in out desktop computer, but when we bring out the iPhones or iPad, they’re really interested. I guess it’s all about what you learn on, right?
