UPDATE: Our third Peekaboo app, Peekaboo Forest, is now available! Using the beautiful illustrations of Charley Harper, now you can play Peekaboo on your iPhone and finally your iPad too.

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--in English or Spanish--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. And everyone will adore the illustrations by Divya Srinivasan, whose work is regularly featured in the New Yorker.

One of the first apps to be released for toddlers in 2008, Peekaboo Barn has been downloaded over half a million times, and played over 20 million times worldwide. It has been a top 10 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 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 Yahoo! 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!

If you like Peekaboo Barn, check out the sequels: Peekaboo Forest and Peekaboo Wild. All new animals in a mysterious forest and African grasslands! Some of our other kid's apps are: Eric Carle's My Very First App matching game, Ed Emberley’s Shake & Make art-puzzle game, and Kindermusik Radio- over 100 kid-friendly songs and activities.

If your sound isn't working, make sure you have the sound switch turned on (on the side of your iPhone), and check Settings in the app--your toddler may have turned off the animal sounds!
