When I was trying to figure out what great app to share with you today, I realized we'd never made a list of all of the free Budge studio apps! Today's apps feature Caillou, Care Bears and Barbie, along with a link to the Strawberry Shortcake apps. That makes TWENTY TWO apps in all! These apps are ALL free and kids just love them, because they feature some favorite characters. The apps themselves are well designed, too, and easy to use. Every app does have some in-app purchases, but the app is playable without purchasing. It's also a nice way to try it out before committing to the price. Try out some kid-friendly apps with no cost requirements! That sounds perfect to me.
** Please note: These free apps have in-app purchases, but they can easily be disabled in the settings of your device. There are also ads and social network links in some of these apps.
Only the app's developer can control when an app is free or not. All apps that we post as Good Free Apps of the Day are verified to be free at the time of this post. We make no guarantees otherwise.**
