Who would think that the combination of bugs and buttons would result in app magic? That's exactly the case with Bugs and Buttons which includes a whopping 18 different games, such as pattern-making, sorting, counting, letter sequences, connecting dots, mazes and tic-tac-toe. The realistic-looking bees, ladybugs, ants and other bugs together with engaging graphics will grab -- and hold -- your child's attention. There's plenty of just-for-fun play too, with activities such as racing cockroaches or collecting spiders in a jar. Since there's a wide range of difficulty levels, this is also an app that will grow with your preschooler and remain engaging into elementary school.
