Scott: Smule is one of my personal favorite iOS developers; its musical apps push the boundaries between game and musical instrument, and they are incredibly easy to pick up and play. Magic Piano was Smule's first iPad app, and it remains the best. The idea of a virtual touch piano isn't unique, but Magic Piano's selection of wacky stretching keyboards -- circular, spiral, even a freeform black canvas -- make for fun musical doodling. You can also play with other people in live duets, but for kids it's fun to let them play by themselves.

Monkey Preschool Lunchbox (99 cents). Scott: A classic '70s-era children's book has been lovingly updated on the iPad in app form, thanks to this Sesame Street effort. Everything from the artwork to the font feels like a throwback, yet this app is full of animation and even interactive bits that feel fresh. Best of all, Grover's voice acting (he reads the whole book and guides kids through) is spot-on. Parents will love it for the trip back in time, and kids will love it because, heck, Grover's wearing a hard hat.

Montessorium Intro to Letters ($4.99). Scott: Kids like dinosaurs. It's that simple. National Geographic's app is relatively expensive and takes up a good chunk of your iPad's flash memory, but the digital book has dozens of dinosaurs, lots of text, and a voice that will read to young ones. This app skews toward older kids, but at least it's an e-book that will grow with your child. One caveat: scenes of dinosaur violence may be something you want to review before sharing with your child. My kid loves it, but it's up to you to decide how you feel.
