We have many games on our Apple devices for the kids to play and learn, however...I've often thought how nice it would be to take it a step further...to really get them involved and having even more fun while they're learning! Well, now there is thanks to AppStart Learning and their iLearn 'N' Play - a combination of iOS devices and toys!
iLearn 'N' Play was created by a team of product development experts with a combined 30 years of experience working with cutting edge brands like VTech Early Learning, Fisher Price, and more! It combines the use of devices like iPads, iPhones and iPods with a fun, App-enhanced learning curriculum to make the most revolutionary development in education since the chalkboard!

I don't know about you, but this exactly what I had been looking for. A way to take fun and learning to a whole new level using the Apple devices we already own. And the really neat part, is that the toys of iLearn 'N' Play were not an afterthought to Apps already created. No, the three toys available play an important role in the function of the App through a variety of external buttons, knobs or stylus. 

I was excited to have the opportunity to learn more about the following three toys and that we were going to be able to review one.

  • iPad App: Letterbox for the Learning Tablet toy 
  • iPad or iPhone/iPod Touch App: Letter Explorer for the Adventure Explorer toy
  • Either iPhone/iPod Touch App: Numberbots for The Robbi toy

It was not easy trying to decide which one of these fun, interactive toys to review. After looking each of them over in depth, I decided on the Adventure Explorer Toy based on my kids' ages and interests. I'm so glad I did!


  • On the go play
  • Protects device
  • Workds with iPhone, iPod Touch, & iPad devices
  • Driving controls
  • Compatible with iLearn 'N' Play Letter Explorer App
  • Designed for ages 3+

When our iLearn 'N' Play Adventure Explorer App Learning Toy arrived, I couldn't wait to check it out (the kids were pretty excited too!
Out of the box I could tell right away that the quality is great. It seems durable and well-made which is important when it comes to things my kids are using on a daily basis. It's great to know that this is something that will last us a long time. 

I really appreciate that it's made to safely enclose and protect my Apple device. My iPhone safely locks into the toy, protecting it from accidental drops. YAY! And, it couldn't be easier to insert into the case. 
I located the child safety lock on the back (using a coin to lock and unlock), and then simply inserted my device into the protective case. After closing the back, I placed it on the steering wheel base and was ready to get everything set up and ready to use. 

This particular toy does take 3 AA batteries (not included), however this was not a problem as we always have batteries on hand. Once I put the batteries in, both Kaden and Kaelyn were begging to give it a try. Thankfully, it didn't take long and we had the bluetooth between my phone and the toy set up so that they could start using the FREE Letter Explorer App and play the fun, educational game.
I'm sure you have guessed by now, but both kids were absolutely thrilled with the app, and the iLearn 'N' Play toy! Kaden especially enjoys using the steering wheel and throttle to control the car that's collecting letters int he Letter Explorer app. I am amazed how much fun he's having and doesn't even realize he's learning at the same time. At 3 years old he is just beginning to recognize letters, and this app is sure helping a lot!

Kaelyn already knows her letters, but she still enjoys the practice...and of course the idea of driving a race car while doing it! 

The features on the toy really make it come to life. With a forward/reverse and fast/slow levers...along with a horn and key, the kids stay entertained with the app and learning for long periods of time. They just love it! I will admit, so do I. It's a lot of fun!
I do like that the Adventure Explorer is made with the family on the go in mind. Kids can play the app without using the Adventure Explorer controls as well. Simply remove the case from the support arm and they can continue to play on the go by tilting the case left and right to steer and touching the screen to speed up. It's great for trips in the car especially!

Overall I've been really happy with the Adventure Explorer from iLearn 'N' Play! I will definitely be watching as more apps for each of these toys are rolled out throughout the year, as I know this is something my kids are going to enjoy playing with for a long time! 

Now that we've had the opportunity to test out the Adventure Explorer, we can't wait to see what the Robbi Toy and Learning Tablet Toy are like as well! 

The Robbi Toy is an adorable learning companion, providing children with hours of fun learning. Simply slip an iPhone or iPod into Robbi's faceplate and he comes alive. So cute! Bluetooth connects the iPod/iPhone to the unit. The apps ask children to use the 10 chunky numbers in Robbi's tummy to focus on teaching beginning numbers, counting, addition/subtraction, colors, and more! I could see this being great for any young child. The Robbi toy retails for $39.99 at Target and Target.com.

The Learning Tablet toy also looks like loads of fun! Simply slip your iPad into the durable frame, grab the attached child-friendly stylus and power up for some fun learning! Once safely inserted, the iPad becomes a part of this amazing new, early educational concept. Each Learning Tablet comes with a Letterbox app, which helps young children to develop their writing skills. Using the stylus provided, children learn to write the letters of the alphabet and be rewarded for improving their skills. The Learning Tablet toy retails for $19.99 at Target and Target.com.
Buy It: The iLearn 'N' Play Adventure Explorer toy retails for $39.99.
