I love this idea for an app! Leela Kids is a kid-friendly podcast app loaded with tons of different podcasts spanning across many different topics. The app is divided into different age groups, and users can choose their topic based on their age and interest. The podcasts vary in length, with some lasting only four minutes and others over an hour. Leela Kids features popular and recognizable titles, such as Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls, and also has podcasts featuring well-known celebrities (e.g., Jay Leno).
The way that the topics are broken down into age categories, as well as a search function, makes it easy to find suitable podcasts to appeal to any mood or taste. There are even podcasts that offer lessons in learning a new language. Whether it be sports, news, religion, fiction, or whatever else that you are interested in, this app covers it all.
I like that this offers my kids (or anyone, really) a form of entertainment that allows them to listen and spark interest and curiosity without having to be immersed in a game.
*This app is free to download and use. However, you are only allowed one hour of listening per month and three downloads and subscriptions. For a nominal (and well worth it) fee of $3.99 per month, access is unlimited.
Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. Also compatible with Android. (Only tested on an iPhone.)
