[Free] An intellectual learning experience on your smartphone! You can use the gentle music box
game as an app for enjoyably developing children's sensitivity and ear for music, and also as a tool for lulling him or her to sleep.
This app offers two modes – "lullaby mode" for lulling a baby or child to sleep and "play mode" for developing a child's color recognition and ear for music.
"Lullaby mode" is intended to relax a baby or child with gentle music box sounds and lovable animations, with 5-, 10-, and 15-minute timer settings, to lull him or her to sleep, like a lullaby.
"Play mode" is a game mode in which motifs of animals, stars, and princesses appear in different colors in time to the music from the music box, and the child taps those motifs that are of specified colors, in order.
The app uses songs and motifs that children and infants love, and simultaneously develops their ear for music, sense of color, and sensitivity.
This is a free app and you will never be prompted to add pay stages or be concerned about your child purchasing them by mistake. You can use it without worry.
