Bunny Fun: Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes by … ($3.99) by Auryn Inc. takes a classic children’s song to a whole new level. Or, should I say, three whole new levels. Let Bunny teach your children to sing “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes” in three new languages: Spanish, French and Japanese.
Your child will have the option to choose which language he or she wants to hear first. Once chosen, Bunny will jump into the appropriate costume. After a few touches of the screen, you will hear an group of children singing in the chosen language while Bunny points to the parts of the body being sung about and the words will appear on the bottom of the screen.
Once your child has heard the song enough in any of the given languages and wants to try to sing the song their own, there is a fun “Record” option. The words will flash on the screen keeping tempo with the original recording. Once recorded, you can play back until your heart’s content.
The song is not the only mode this app offers. There is also the option to touch on any of the anatomical parts included in the song to hear the words spoken.
Bunny Fun is a great little app to wet your child’s appetite for foreign languages. It will help them decide which one they have a particular interest in and spark discussion about foreign cultures.
