Every time your baby touches the screen, colorful stars will burst from their fingers. Watch them delight in the audio and visual feedback!

Baby’s Musical Hands supports full multi-touch, meaning your baby gets the kind of feedback they expect when touching the screen.

Baby’s Musical Hands Reviews

This app is self-voicing and fully accessible for children who are visually impaired or blind. Thank you for creating an app that is exciting for ALL babies and toddlers! FYI: the app does work with VoiceOver (Apples screen reader); however, only the piano sounds are heard, even when touching the read and blue squares.

Our parenting does not involve screen time for our child. But we came across this app and it is PERFECT. It’s simple, clean, and minimal. Our daughter (currently 15mo) loves playing music and pushing buttons so this is great. We can even work on colors with it. So, so, so, so great!

It’s perfect for our cousin kaysin.

No silly animation, so its more active play and not just watching TV. We LOVE that toddler cant accidentally exit or hit a menu that stops the keys from working. Also love that there are no in-app purchases so we dont have to worry about accidental purchases.

Doesnt work with our new phone. Loved this. Our kid loves this. Please fix.

No sound. But baby does get graphic star explosions when she touches the squares.

Our 6 week old son will kick it with his feet during tummy time and smiles at the sounds. It’s a lot of fun to watch him react to the different sounds.

Our daughter really loves this app! It keeps her entertained.

The babies in our world (niece and nephew of 11 months and 7 months) LOVE this app. It’s simple, fun, stimulating and so entertaining for them. We highly recommend it.

Our 11 week old loves this app. At this age there isn’t much that gets a reaction but to see her reach to touch our iPhone and play music and look so interested is awesome! Thank u for this app!

Our daughters fight over who gets to play with the ipad when we open this app. It is great, highly recommend it!

Our 8 month old love it. She wanted it back on her hands. Still touching with her whole hand but she enjoy the music produced by it. Huge big smiles. Thanks.

Tis is a wonderfully simple, and successfully engaging app. The combination of lyrical keys and percussion along with the sparkling visuals grabbed our daughters attention, as well as that of the rest of our children. Finding apps for our 1yr old with cerebral palsy is a constant search, and this was a very successful purchase.

Our seven month baby loves this app, the only problem the one we don’t know how to fix it is that when she starts playing with her hands the screen moves to another page in our ipad. Any suggestions in how to lock it so our babay with her hands can’t move the screen?

We love this App Baby’s Musical Hands! We use it with our two month old and he has a wonderful time. We noticed a lot of reviewers complained about the multi-gesture trouble even though the App reminds users to turn that feature off in settings. An even better way to lock the screen is to use the GUIDED ACCESS feature, new with iOS6. Once turned on in Settings you can just triple click the home key when you open the game and start Guided Access. This locks the child in the App. When the child is finished playing, its just another triple click and a quick code to exit. No need to go in and out of settings every time. You can even customize Guided Access for each App and block certain areas of the screen if desired. We hope this helps. Enjoy this awesome baby App!

Hi our name is Mia Strayer we are legally blind and love your little apps they are very good for cause-and-effect the one thing we would change is the drum set sound to a Harp sound we think that would sound really good especially for little kids we are a kid at heart we downloaded these apps because we like stuff with cause-and-effect because we cannot see very well we are definitely going to recommend these apps The only change we would make is that you change it to a heart most babies love music we think iHarp would sound really soothing instead of a drum.

Our daughter can spend hours playing music and making colors.

Like the app. Turn off multi-gesture in settings to keep from screen moving to next app.

Great for 4~18 months baby. Just turn the guided access ON in the iPad settings to prevent baby from switching the app to another one of yours.

Our son loves it,but pinch to close needs to be disabled, or redirected to a different function within the app. Otherwise there is no way he can use since he gets frustrated every time the app closes.

Would be great even though its pretty plain, it needs to be able to lock the screen because every time our baby touches it it takes it to home screen or other window, please update.

Paid original cost, then charged again less than 2 weeks later. Deleted app…

Our grandson loves this app. It doesn’t require precise or specific finger movements. Any touch is instantly rewarded with sound and visual images.

This app is great perfectly simple for babies!

Our 16 mo old son loves this app. If only we could get him to stop pushing the home button and quitting the app.

Our 8 month old absolutely loves this app. It keeps her entertained for quite sometime, however, we do limit the amount of time she is allowed to play her apps on our iPad. So for 99 cents it is absolutely worth it, since we don’t solely rely on our iPad to entertain her.

Simple yet entertaining. Our little ones love this app. The tones are very relaxing as well. It’s not obnoxious like other kid apps.

Our 14 month old loves this game!

Waste of a download without the sound. Would be great if they fixed it.

We’re not sure if there is some settings we have to do but we’re not getting any sound from this and our volume is all the way up so our daughter hasnt paid much mind to it.

It is extrememly limited and if the baby presses too long the Ipad brings up other screens, wish we wouldn’t have bought it, could have given the money to the salvation army for Christmas.

The worst app ever so far can’t believe we spent 99 cents. Very boring for a 10 month baby she lost interest after 5 seconds!

This simple app is perfect for the intended audience – very young children. Our wife is a literacy outreach specialist for the library and is anti-"screen-time" for little kids but even she had to admit that this app is actually a good app for youngsters. Why? Because this app encourages imagination and creativity and has no commercial content or "tie in". This app is a pure musical instrument and software toy and your young child is very likely to enjoy it. Excellent job!

We love this app it is fantastic. We think if the five notes were the pentatonic scale (like C D E G A) it would be even better. You can play a lot of actual songs with that scale and all of the notes sound good when mashed together. Our 3 month old loves this app though!

This is the best! This app alone is one of our favorite things about our iPad. Our 7mo old loooves it. We play forever together. Well worth it.

Our baby loves the clapping game and when we "play percussion" along to music. A friend pointed us to this app and it was an instant hit. We particularly love that once in the app, the only way out is the iPad button making it difficult for baby to accidentally navigate away (as she often does with other kid-oriented apps). This was a very well spent 99 cents.

We’ve got to add our voice to the rest of the reviews. This is pretty great. Our 8-month-old is really excited about it. Lots of drool on the iPad just now.
