5 Android Apps To Keep Your Kids Busy On Your Way To Holidays


Holidays, vacations, driving away from the polluted and busy cities to fly towards beaches and mountains or back to hometown again. We all love that feeling! What we, parents, may not like is the noise pollution that occur at the back seats of the car, promising to last for hours and hours: kids feeling bored.  In transport and especially on the drive to holidays, kids can be very excited, stressed and also annoyed.

Long hours of seating in a car, it is very hard for them. Even a two and half hours drive along North–South Expressway from Sepang to Muar can be a difficult one for them.

So to keep kids busy on your way to holidays and to help parents drive them safely (and keep their nerves!), here is a top 5 Android apps suggested by the parents and smartphone addicts over at PricePanda.

Top 5 Android Apps

5. Peek-A-Zoo by DuckDuckMoose

Peek-A-Zoo is an app designed for very young kids (toddler). Based around different animals (an alligator, a cat, a cow, a dog, a hippo, a mouse, a penguin and much more…), this app helps them learn their names but also identify emotions, positions, sounds, activities and attires. T

he music is really awesome and the design is so cute that it can keep at least 2 kids entertained for a couple of hours. Price: $1.99.

4. Draw Something

Draw Something is a very cool and interactive app that is played with at least 2 kids, of at least 7 year old. The first one draws something and the second one has to guess what it is. It is highly addictive, even to parents. It is basically like a Pictionary but it takes much less space to travel with a smartphone than with a complete game set.

Recommended installation on your android Smartphone if you have a kid in kindergarten.

Price: Free.

3. Medieval Math Battle

Kids, especially boys, will love this app that combines math exercises and medieval fantasy quest. It turns out that monster battling and mathematic puzzles work very well together. It will keep you kids busy for long hours and will help them improve their mathematic skills at school.

What’s not to like? Medieval Math Battle.

Price: Free.

2. Toca Builders

Toca Builders is a very funny app where kids have to build structures from blocks. The funny part is that there are robots to help them build, destroy and paint the blocks in different colors. Young kids from 3 to 8 will love this app.

We are not guarantying anything but it should give you about 2 hours of peace and quiet.

Price: $1.99.

1. Angry Birds

Ok, ok, Angry Birds was an easy choice. Neither new nor original, Angry Birds has however become one of the most famous and adored smartphone game of all. Throwing birds, small and fast or big and destructive, over buildings and blocks to destroy them all, is apparently very addictive to parents, teenagers and obviously kids.

The good thing is that the entire family can play together in the car on the road to holidays and even organize a competition.

Everybody loves Angry Birds!

Price: Free.

      Exactly. The only worry is they get too addicted to it and forget the spirit of “Eid al Fitr” or enjoy the celebration.

    Angry Bird is still #1. A good game for kids is the one which combine learning and fun. Then the kids will be benefited from the technology.

      Not sure about the learning part bro 😀 but surely it’s fun. Probably one of the best app ever created.

    anak2 memang lebih tahu berbanding kita bapa dalam bab ni
    yang ruginya mereka jarang perhatikan keadaan keliling
    pemandangan indah juga banyak yang terlepas

      Yup. Excellent point bro. Cuma kalau di NSEW tu, kureng sikit pemandangan berbanding bila drive naik gunung atau kampung 😀
