Feed Me! –- PencilBot Pre-school Learning Centre is a series by our team of teachers, game designers, and parents who have developed educational games for over 10 years. This series is already popular on iPhone/iPad – see reviews below.
This app consists of 1 free sampler and 12 In-App-Purchases (IAPs), each in a specific language. The sampler includes 20 questions in different languages to give you a taste of what the PencilBot Pre-school Learning Centre offers.
The 12 IAPs (US English, UK English, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Mexican Spanish, French, German, Italian, Arabic, Russian or Hindi) expose your child to new languages and tap into their natural ability to learn additional languages.
This simple, easy-to-use game can be enjoyed by children and their parents as they play along.

My 3 year old son adores this app.
Out of all my apps, he comes to this one time and again, and i find it to be one of the best kids apps… He started playing this app when he was 2 1/2 … I can see him still playing this app at 5. It has lots of room for a child to grow into. -- Tammattam
Great for pre-schoolars (v2.0)
…Reinforces the alphabet and helps show children relationships of objects and concepts. -- bruinb77
