The Land of Me by Made in Me

landofme

The Land of Me is a suite of apps that encourage kids to develop their creativity by allowing them to influence the content. The collection includes Story Time, Songs and Rhymes, Making Things, and Shape, Size and Colour. Through an easy to use system of pictograms and dropdown words, children are able to guide their stories in which ever direction they please; build animals, monsters, vehicles or buildings; and sing songs. Each app is beautifully illustrated and improves your child’s English whilst introducing them to other subjects like Physics and Music.

Why we love it:

  • Charming hand-drawn style.
  • Simple and intuitive interface.
  • Sweet and engaging for child and parent.
