Peekaboo Barn is a farm-themed educational game designed for toddlers, from which kids can learn about animal sounds and names. Fittingly for this age group, Peekaboo Barn has a very simple and satisfying schtick: a red barn bounces up and down gently as you hear a muffled animal noise. You tap the barn to open its doors, revealing the now-louder animal. Its name appears, and is also spoken aloud (charmingly, by a fellow toddler in English, or by an adult in Spanish mode).

The game cycles through 10 different farm animals in this way--everything from a cat to a cow to a goat--and after the final animal is revealed, night falls and the game ends as the animals go to sleep. You can also change the settings to play the animals in a continuous loop.

Peekaboo Barn stands out for its high-quality illustrations, clever touches, and clean, thoughtful design. The game's only shortcoming is its length (it is quite short and easily mastered by older toddlers), but Peekaboo Barn is definitely one of the very best apps available for this age group.

Developer's Description

Open up the world-famous Peekaboo Barn, perfect for toddlers. Inside the little bouncing barn, friendly farm animals are waiting to pop out and surprise your little one. Try and guess who they are; tap the doors to find out!More animals, animations, and sounds than ever.Work with your child to learn the names of animals and hear the sounds they make. Younger children will love opening the barn doors to find a new animal animation, as they learn about cause and effect and become familiar with animal names and sounds. Older children will enjoy guessing animals by sound, then seeing the animal names, which helps develop early literacy skills. Multiple Language Features:We started with a child's voice in English. It's her real voice, which some kids really enjoy, but she does say "wabbit" and "wooster." If this is a concern for you, you can switch to any of 12 adult voices; our adult narrators say everything clearly and perfectly, just like the teachers they are. You can try many languages from around the worldor record your own language, or grandma's voice. There are tons of ways to explore the language of Peekaboo Barn!Press the Language button on the Options screen to try them out.Choose from the built-in narrators: child's voice in young English; adult's voice in American English or Spanish.World languages also included: Mandarin, Cantonese, Hindi, Japanese, Swedish, Dutch, Italian, German, French, and UK English. Record your own voice: We added this feature so parents, children, and visiting relatives and friends can capture their own voices and star in Peekaboo Barn. Now you can record the animal names in your native language--or grandma's voice, or grandpa's--and, if you're recording a new language, you can save the appropriate written version too, and both will show up the next time you play. (Please note, we can only support the writing systems that are supported by your device.)FEATURED BY APPLEOne of the first apps to be released for toddlers, since 2008 Peekaboo Barn has been downloaded over half a million times, and played over 70 million times worldwide.
