Created by parents for their own children (and tested extensively with those very same kids), Hippo Hooray Numbers is a great way to help young children learn their numbers, practice counting, and keep them entertained. From the makers of Hippo Hooray Colors, Shapes, and Letters displays the numbers 0-20 on wooden tiles, and written on the blackboard. A young voice encourages your child to choose the right number, helps them if they don't pick right the first time, and pats them on the back when they choose correctly. In addition to teaching kids to recognize numbers, Hippo Hurray Numbers has counting screens where children can count cupcakes, party hats, and balls. There's even a line of text for grownups to use to help guide their toddler and to help in noisy environments. Every so often a short video will pop up congratulating your child on doing a great job. Rather than a quiz format, each screen is like a little teaser for your toddler to learn from.
Amid beautiful illustrations, you'll find Honey the Hippo and Raphael the Robin (yes, he paints!) peeking out from behind scenery, and coming out to encourage your child. (Keep an eye out for the monkey with the cupcake hat.) In addition to high quality artwork, the user interface is incredibly simple letting your toddler focus on cognitive, language, and motor development.

What's New in Version 1.2
Fixed a few bugs, Hippo Hooray Numbers is now even more random in its presentation of numbers.
Not interactive,Needs more!
Pros-This app is visually beautiful and starts out really well by saying "count the party hats" or "balls etc" .The kid talking speaks clearly and sounds cute but...
This is where the app fails
Cons-after the invitaion too count,nothing is interactive... And even when you press the right no. It just moves quickly to the next screen .
1:Have a voice say the no. Even when right or wrong.
2:After you get the no. Right tell the kids "great job" or something encouraging
3:Make the pictures interactive eg. The ball could make a bouncing sound etc.
4:options menu would be nice to vary difficulty level
O well I've said enough
two stars for now
