These early learning apps are sure to entertain and educate your children.
Monkey Word School Adventure uses mini-games to help kids get started on the road to reading. Games include learning spelling, letter identification, rhyming and much more. Kids love the fast paced and engaging activities. Parents get so much value out of the descriptive settings page that break down the learning in each mini-game. The app auto adjusts based on your child’s play or gives the controls to the adults for customizing the app. Either way you will know what your child is working on! A child safe app with options for customizing the app for multiple children.
ABC Theater: The Alphabet Song is an app for young children to hear, see and trace the letters of the alphabet. In the “Learn Song” activity, children see a capital letter, hear the letter name, trace the capital letter and watch a picture of a word that starts with the letter come alive on the screen. There is no reinforcement of what that pictures name is, so adults will want to spend time talking and asking questions about what is seen on the screen. Two other activities in the app let you sing the full ABC song and play along using a xylophone. We encountered a few notifications and open links in the parent page that take you to the appstore, so we recommend this app for joint play until these links are locked. Overall the app has a very pretty design and provides a nice ABC experience for young children.
Bo’s Jigsaw Puzzles uses the characters from our other favorite Heppi apps, Bo’s Bedtime and Bo’s Dinnertime, to create fun puzzles for young kids. Choose from over 20 puzzle pictures that can be divided into 4, 9 or 16 pieces. Simply drag each piece into place with support of the image adjusted to be slightly transparent in the background. A very easy app to get young children started on digital puzzles. Jump in and play puzzles together with your kids. If they use this app alone be aware that there are buttons on the main screen that take you out of the app and into the app store.
