Music and action come together in the simple and entertaining app Hickory Dickory Dock by Mindshapes. As you and your child interact with the app, a catchy variation of the classic nursery rhyme Hickory Dickory Dock introduces 12 interactive mini games, one for each hour on a clock. To begin each game, move the clock hands or tap the arrows to choose the time. Tap on the number to introduce another part of the game as you solve puzzles, pop bubbles or make music and dance! As well as being amusing and beautifully illustrated, this app helps to learn numbers, introduces the clock face and problem solving skills. Play and sing with your child as you use this free app, available for iPad and iPhone.
