Ants Can't Dance App Has Dancing Animals and Funny Puns for Kids

Kids love stories, especially ones that can make them laugh out loud with silly imagery and words. Ants Can't Dance is one of these stories. It's the latest digital storybook from The Happy Dandelion, and it's packed with humor, hand-drawn illustrations, and a handful of fun interactive elements. The story, told by a human narrator, follows the notion that animals have no dancing abilities. Of course you'd soon learn that it isn't entirely true.

An Animal Dance Party

In Ants Can't Dance, every page contains an illustration of an animal alongside punny comments on that animal's dancing ability. For example, the opening page mentions that ants can't dance because they have three left feet. Another page describes polar bears' inability to dance are due to their "cold feet".

The Tune Zoo is a Fun Way to Learn Music Theory for Kids

Music is always a popular subject among kids, hence the number of music-related apps on the App Store. Over the years, I have collected a list of favorite music apps for kids: Tongo Music, Loopimal, and more. The Tune Zoo is the latest app to get on that list.

Developed by Extraordinary Facility, the Tune Zoo is an interactive toy that allows kids of all ages create music with the help of quirky characters. Along the way, they also learn the fundamentals of music, such as melody and rhythm.

Explore the Musical Scales

In The Tune Zoo, kids manipulate colorful characters to create their own songs: they can tap the red characters and stretch the blue and yellow characters' heads to play the notes in a five-note scale, while tapping the gray speakers to toggle beats and background melodies. A black cloud also occasionally floats by, which can be tapped to produce percussion sounds.
