Pango Playground is our Recommended Children’s App of the Week. This video game for toddlers from Julien Akita encourages kids to explore virtual playgrounds.

The free iOS app allows kids to interact with toys in these virtual worlds including bringing trains and slides to life. Here is more about it from iTunes:

Catch the train, stop at the station and slide down on the slide, look for a treasure in the sand, fly to the stars on board a spacerocket, put together a puzzle’s pieces…Play with your kid and make up your own stories! Your kid can experience interactivity, increase his/her curiosity and imagination, develop his/her fine motor skills.
