Mibblio Music Maker Kids iPad App (Free)

The Mibblio is a fun iPad app that helps kids learn about musical instruments as they play along with illustrated songs. If you were reading a book to your child they would see the pages and hear you reading but with Mibblio they get to hear the story as it is sung to them and see the pages as they turn with the music.

Mibblio is much more than just a musical storybook though. Your kids get to play musical instruments while they listen.

Download the app for free and then pick which story you want. I suggest you press the magnifying glass icon on each story until you find the one you want to listen to and play along with because you only get one storybook for Free. The rest will cost $1.99, so you will want to choose wisely.

I picked the Millie and Her Curling, Whirling Hair.  As an adult I was intrigued by the story and wanted to know how it finished. I found myself thoroughly entertained as I played along with the story on the keyboard. I changed the keyboard to try each of the musical instruments – piano, guitar, saxophone, clarinet, flute and also strummed on the banjo and played the bells and drums on the right side of the screen.

The quality of the instruments was amazing as they fit perfectly with the song being played. I like how children will learn what sounds each of the instruments make. They can see a picture of the instrument so they are learning about music while having fun listening and reading along with the story.

The Mibblio is a very interactive app because kids can read, sing, learn and play music all at the same time!

This app is perfect for children ages 3 to 8. It will help them learn about musical instruments and improve their reading skills.
