How I Survive Grocery Shopping with my Toddler

Gone are the days of perusing the aisles of the grocery store while sipping my Starbucks and checking items off my list. Now that my baby girl is a toddler, I enter like a secret agent. I have a mission in mind and there are no pit stops or casual stranger conversations along the way. I am timely and focused on completing the necessary shopping with as little casualties from a high pitch tantrum as possible. (Seriously though, my girl has lungs.) But then I had the opportunity to test a new app called ‘Kidloland‘ and my grocery shopping experience was forever changed!

Berklee is completely mesmerized by this app that includes 800 different nursery rhymes, songs, stories, activities and games. That’s no typo y’all — 800 OF THEM! Which guarantees your toddler will never get bored with the same ol game or song. Did I mention it’s completely educational too? There are songs about shapes, colors, and even animals. Berklee loves all of their stories as well. They give you the option of allowing the app to read it aloud to you, or read it to yourself.  Not to mention, the music and colors of ‘Kidloland’ are incredibly stimulating and the perfect distraction for your little one. You can download the app via iOS, Google Play Store, and Amazon Appstore.
