Where once there was an abacus and counting blocks now there is an ever-expanding array of different apps and games to play on phones, computers, and tablets. It’s easier than ever to teach your children basic mathematics through play and know that they are having a great time whilst doing so. Now the struggle, if there is one, is in choosing between them and so to help you do precisely that we’ve organized 3 of what we believe to be the best apps for learning numbers for toddlers.
The Counting Caterpillar app is just beautiful, it’s visuals and graphics are absolutely gorgeous.

They are rewarded for doing this by progressively rare and spectacular butterflies that they can then collect and display in a trophy case to mark their achievement.

It covers a much larger age range than most and will see your child through kindergarten and much beyond with progressing difficulty and complexity in the games provided. The variety though is really what sells it, the games are smart and intuitive and the controls easy to use but you could come back day after day and still be getting something new. It has great graphics and stunning visual effects to reward users for completion of key goals and milestones and the characters are colorful and interesting to prompt and encourage your child to keep playing, and they’ll want to because above all else Mathlingo is a lot of fun.
