New SeaWorld Kids Apps Here In Time For The Holidays

SeaWorld Kids has released some new educational apps just in time for the Holiday Break to keep kids learning and exploring the world!

Zoe plays with my phone and tablet all the time, and while building snowcones or playing with Palace Pets is great I am always on the lookout for educational apps that will keep her learning and occupied.

With five different themes, Polar Bears, Penguins, Big Cats, Baby Animals ,and a more general Kids Network, children can pick and choose which interests them most and stay connected with animals and nature.

Each app serves as an “activity center,” with games and videos that are both entertaining and educational.

I especially love that these apps are completely free (no in-app purchases), from the App Store and will work on iPad, iPhone and iPad Touch.

Penguin’s Playground, powered by SeaWorld Kids, features thirty activities featuring funny playful penguins!
