If you're a parent then you know that a smartphone or a tablet can be a saving grace in many situations with a toddler. Mine is my secret weapon for accomplishing many otherwise nearly impossible tasks, like showering or going to the grocery store. Without our tablet I literally would not be able to do those things, or at least not to a generally acceptable degree. Believe me, I've tried. And failed, resulting in chasing my two-year-old down the hall wrapped in a towel with shampoo in my hair. Or leaving a grocery store with a screaming toddler who decided to entertain himself by tossing the contents of our cart onto the floor.

Our Amazon Fire tablet not only keeps our child entertained while we're on the go, it's also full of learning tools that I love. Thanks to Amazon Underground we can access tons of games and apps that are totally free. Over 3,000, completely 100% free.

Educational Apps for Kids

I'm amazed at how much my son has learned from some of his favorite educational apps. From learning the alphabet to speaking Spanish, he's picked up so much from the apps he plays. A few of our favorites are the Dr. Panda apps and Elmo Loves 123s.

How much money have you spent on games and apps for your kids? It gets kinda crazy right? We got the Amazon Fire tablet and I did a little dance when I found out you can download thousands of free games and apps with Amazon Underground and the @amazonappstore . B loves the Dr. Panda games and he's obsessed with Sandra Boynton books. You can download read slings from her collection as well as Dr. Seuss, Little Critters, Berenstain Bears and tons more.
