Best Free Ipad Apps for Preschool Kids

If you have underestimated about the possibilities and educational benefits that an ipad holds, think again!

When we bought our ipad 2 two years back, I was completely unaware of its utilities. Now, my son who is a kindergartner, likes to spend time playing on the ipad. Its actually doing the job of a baby sitter for me, when I'm stuck up with some house-hold chores. I did a small research about the various educational ipad apps - online and offline games and activities for kids, and was surprised to see those results. That was completely a new world full of information, colors, games and fun.

Here, I have managed to list few of the educational ipad apps for preschool that I have been using for my son and the ones which I find useful and affordable.
