Learning Time with Timmy 3 - starting to read

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Timmy and friends, Kid and Finlay, are back and having fun in the sun! The third app in the ‘Learning Time with Timmy’ series features a new reading game, new videos, stickers and party themes to help young children learn English. With this app children will learn over 60 new English words, review vocabulary from the first two ‘Learning Time with Timmy’ apps and boost their cognitive and memory skills.

‘Learning Time with Timmy 3’ is packed with new holiday-themed vocabulary including party food, musical instruments and fancy dress costumes. This app is designed for kids aged 3-6 learning English but if English is their first language, it could be suitable for those as young as two years old.

What’s new?

In the new game ‘Hatch Match’ your child is introduced to reading simple vocabulary as they match pairs of pictures with words. They can also choose between three levels of difficulty depending on how strong their reading skills are. Watch your child get more confident and improve their memory skills as they match three, then four, then six pairs in a game that becomes more challenging!

Familiar games get harder!

In ‘I-Spy’ your child can find hidden objects on the beach such as a bucket, a spade or a fish as well as revise old vocabulary, boosting their concentration. As they progress objects get harder to find, requiring serious focus and increased dexterity!

Your child must listen to the narrator and swipe away sand, sweets and beach towels in ‘Rub-a-Dub’ to discover objects such as cake and pizza hidden beneath. Tapping and swiping away the colourful scenes will develop their motor skills and hand-eye coordination.

Get Rewards

In each game your child is encouraged by Timmy, Kid and Finlay to collect new stickers to create new party, seaside and camping themes, plus videos that they can watch whenever they choose. Simply tap the trophy button to play with stickers and watch video clips.
