“Animation, music and a beautiful look and feel make this stand out from the herd of alphabetical apps.” — Stuart Dredge, The Guardian.

Optimized for the new iPad retina display.

Antique ABCs is a uniquely delightful tool for preschool and kindergarten learning, set in an atmosphere of nostalgic charm. Beautiful hand-engraved alphabet prints from the 19th century come to life with engaging and entertaining 21st century interactive play. Touch-screen technology and gentle animation are seamlessly merged with the look and sound of yesteryear to help children learn while having fun. With its retro appeal and modern-day magic, Antique ABCs is an abecedary to captivate all ages.

Updating the delicate illustrations from German lithographer Joseph Martin Kronheim’s My First Alphabet with FusionLab’s amusing modern-day animations and touch-screen interactions, Antique ABCs presents the alphabet in three different functions: Song, Spinner and Shuffle.

SONG plays the classic alphabet song with period-evocative sound effects and enchanting animations.
SPINNER lets children give the rattling wheel a “spin” and test themselves on letters as they come up in randomized order.
SHUFFLE challenges children to reorder the jumbled alphabet into order, either from a fixed grid or a floating pile of cards.

This app is great!!!! Easy to use and the animations and graphics are outstanding!!! The letters animate when you tap on them and have sound as well!! A great way to teach kids their abc's I'm definitely buying the full version! I also used this app on the iPad and the experience is even better. Well done!
