Small balloons pop up with the chord name and are ‘pop’-able, keeping very young children highly entertained and amused. Overall, the app is a great introduction to chord shapes and sounds.

What is it? Tap Tap Beats is a fun rhythm game where you control a unicorn by tapping the screen at the correct moment- failing to do so results in the unicorn falling off a narrow pathway.
Why do we love it? We love anything ‘Tap Tap’ related. These games are great for people who want to get to grips with rhythm and how it is broken up into beats. The music varies throughout and starts with the iconic ‘In the Hall of the Mountain King’ to introduce players in a fun and vibrant way.
