APPS // PEEKABOO BARN
"A charming barn adventure for toddlers and families with vibrant colors and playful animations"
Inside a 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!
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.
The app includes twelve different language options with purchase as well as a Record Your Own Voice Record feature. We added this option 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.)
One of the first apps to be released for toddlers, since 2008 Peekaboo Barn has been played over 70 million times worldwide. It has been a top 20 educational game on the iTunes store nearly every day since its launch, and has been featured by Apple often. It won The Best Toddler App Ever award in 2009, and was named one of the top 50 iPhone apps for kids by Babble.com in 2010 and 2011. It is recommended by The New York Times, MSNBC, USA Today, Wired, Telegraph UK, Ireland’s The Independent, Parents Magazine, and the Washington Post.
Peekaboo Barn was made for you and your toddler by artists and educators, not marketers, robots, or companies repackaging clip art. Our team has backgrounds in cognitive science and child development, and we’ve worked in educational media everywhere from Sesame Workshop to the Smithsonian Institution. When you could really use a safe distraction—in airports, restaurants, and waiting rooms—or you’d like to try something new with your little genius, Peekaboo Barn is the educational, artful solution. Enjoy!

The Peekaboo series from Night and Day Studios has helped to set the standard early for expectations around producing quality applications for young children. I have seen this app used in a wide range of contexts and every toddler I see play with it lights up at the images and sounds.

The graphics in this app feel like a really well made children’s book. The voice over and animal sounds are high quality as well.
I have yet to find many preschool games that are educational and appropriate to offer in a Preschool environment, this one is a WINNER. All the teachers, parents and students LOVE Peek-A-Boo barn!
