Children love spelling in this engaging 'build and spell' game. Parents love how easy it is to add custom word lists and see children's progress. It's great for weekly spelling lists, learning new vocabulary, and spelling bee practice. Ages 4-8.
In the Little Big Car Factory, players become super spelling car designers! After selecting a vehicle to customize, they will spell words to gain access into each of the Design Labs at the factory. They will select from a variety of flashy paint designs, snazzy wheels, fun decals, and groovy radio tunes before taking it out for a spin on a non-violent race course that is different every time.

Ratings and Reviews
Makes spelling fun!
Have been using this for a couple years with my son who hates doing spelling words. It is an excellent tool and option for parents to help make spelling fun!
Great practice for spelling
My 4 year old really loves this game and it's great to see how quickly she can learn to spell new words using this app!
A little complicated for young kids
Both my kids are a big fan of Rocket Speller so I thought this would be great. They do love it but unfortunately it is a bit more complicated in the spelling. They get very frustrated when it swaps to a typing layout, rather than drag and drop letters. Both love the race at the end, and hitting puddles. It is also nice they get rewards in the form of new cars, colours, and stickers.
