Hello everyone! Are you up to an adventure? I am Abby the Monkey, the friend you know from a highly-successful application series by 22learn, and I have prepared one for you! If you want to EXPLORE a strange animal island and LEARN PHONETIC LETTER SOUNDS, you shouldn’t wait a minute, and come with me!!!

But first let me tell you a story….
Once upon a time, there was an island, an island of indescribable beauty and magnificence. There found a shelter the animals small and large, slimy and furry, savage and tame—all protected from evil hunters and curious eyes, supplied with food from the bountiful earth. Each year, a special event was held, when one, and only one, person from the whole humankind was selected and transported to the island (blinded, to preserve the island’s secrecy) to appreciate its beauty and spread the word about it, so that the island would never be forgotten.

The legend has it, that deep inside the rocky hill on the island, a treasure is kept. Yet, no one knows its secret anymore because the last humankind representative had enraged the animals on the island, and since then, the animals decided never to invite anyone again, and the island got lost in time and space.

All that remains from our knowledge is that through the whole island, a very special train goes. The train has a mind of its own and likes it when the passengers’ names start from certain sounds! It is said, that if someone was ever capable to fulfill all the train’s wishes, the train would transport the lucky being deep inside the rocks and reveal the island’s precious treasure!

But, you are asking, what does all this have to do with me, monkey Abby? Well, imagine what happened to me just recently! I was flying around with my plane when, out of the blue, the storm hit and my plane got lost!

And now, I am on this weird island that looks exactly like the legendary Phonics Island I told you about! Wohoo, how exciting! But I need someone to help me with all the strange tasks the train asks me to do! Do you want to be the one who will help me, and discover the island’s treasure together with me?

Thank you for your purchase!

Abby Phonics is 21st century learning experience


My child hates learning with books - probably because they do not excite him. Abby Phonics is completely interactive and a totally different experience from books, he is learning so fast with this app - it's unbelievable.

Abby Phonics is almost like an interactive TV show that he is part of. He has learnt half of the alphabet sounds in less than a fortnight, a real achievement for a child of his age. The app is so educational and fun, too. He doesn't get bored and she probably doesn't realise that he is learning because it is so much fun for him.

Absolutely brilliant - 5 stars.

Excellent For youngsters to learn as they play

I have downloaded a plethora of iPhone and iPad applications for my daughter that are fun but also aid her learning process. This is by far the best app I have found that achieves both a fun game and learning at the same time.

My daughter loves the storyline and the bright dynamic images of this app which keep her entertained whilst learning too. The sound and speech are very clear and easy to understand which is a must when trying to learn new words and sounds. Her favourite part is the train and being rewarded with virtual stickers, she is entertained for quite sometime which is nice as other games and apps she loses interest quite quickly.

I will definitely upgrade to the full paid version after seeing how much fun and value she has had whilst playing this. The developers have done an amazing job combining learning and fun.

Highly recommended. Thank you

Excellent !!


I love this app! The sounds and speech are both really clear and the graphics are crisp. My 3 yr old loves the train too !!

The multiple games along the way are really good and keep the interest going. The ongoing theme and storyline throuought the app is a great idea!

Keeps my little one interested for a good period of time, and he doesn't even realise he's learning!!
