Overall Score: 92/100

version reviewed: 1.03

reviewed:


Best for: Education, Attention & concentration, Creativity, Early literacy, Eye-hand coordination, Interaction, Language, Music & art

What it is: a set of animated alphabet puzzles.

What you do with it: each letter is illustrated with a simple collage representing an object, whose name begins with this letter (e.g. the airplane for 'A', the lamp for 'L' etc.). The collages are composed of fruit, vegetables, everyday materials (e.g. the Owl is made out of a potato, bananas, forks, magnifying glass, green pepper etc). Tap the object and it will break up - the task is to put it back together.

What we liked: the concept (and very creative approach to presenting the 'ABCs' subject), excellent illustrations, subtle animations, funny narration and sounds, spoken instructions, fun factor, ease of use, good educational value.

What we didn't like: only uppercase letters included.

Best for: Education, Attention & concentration, Early literacy, Eye-hand coordination, Language

What it is/what you do with it: letter writing/spelling practice with friendly monsters/Halloween theme.
