Best for: Education, Early literacy, Language, Thinking & problem solving

What it is and what you do with it: set of 'train' themed activities introducing preschoolers to the alphabet and letter sounds.

Activities include: lowercase/uppercase alphabet, letter tracing, letter recognition, letter sounds and letter matching.

E.g. in the 'Learn The Alphabet' activity your kid will be asked to connect the dots in the correct order to build a train track between stations with different alphabet letters.

What we liked: the concept. Good variety of simple activities introducing kids to the alphabet, letters and their sounds. Fun kid-friendly illustrations. Simple rewards system with stickers and unlockable trains. Narration and spoken instructions. No ads or other distracting features.

What we didn't like: only linear navigation, you can choose material to practice. Some of the activities offer more variety and engagement than others.
