    I have a feeling that tablets’ apps always have better graphics…Shame, I hope smartphones’ apps will catch up at one point :)

      True…We usually recommend storybooks, hidden-object games, and coloring books for tablets. That doesn’t mean you can’t try them on your smartphone and vice versa :-)

    These apps all look so lovely! My daughter’s favourite app to play on my Kindle is Peppa Pig’s Party Time. She loves designing the invitations and decorating cakes – it’s a great app for toddlers!
