A US Dept. of Education-funded study found target vocabulary improved up to 31 percent for children ages 3-7 who played this Parents' Choice Recommended app over a two-week period. Includes FOUR fun-filled games starring Martha, the talking dog from the popular PBS KIDS TV series MARTHA SPEAKS(TM).
Players pick a plate to match the right word and then have their dog lick it clean by moving each dog's tongue around with their finger. Eww! The game introduces these words: striped, nature, nautical, mauve, triangular, colorful, teal, round, square, rectangular, floral, superhero, checkerboard, diamonds, numbers, letters, crimson, instruments, vehicles, and astronauts.
In this self-leveling game, players listen for Martha's "Martha Says" command to get her doggie friends to sit, walk or run. The game introduces these words: pace, stroll, amble, dart, gallop, sprint, halt, freeze, and rest.
DOGGIE DRESS UP
Accessorize the Dog Party guests. Choose among four different dogs and a wide variety of accessories. Players can even take a portrait of their favorite pooch. Pictures are automatically saved to your Photos album (sunflower icon on iPhone). The game introduces these words: stylish, designer, style, fabulous, accessory, fashionable, and portrait.
Players take this balloon-popping quiz to reinforce and test their knowledge of the vocabulary words. See how many points you can score!

Very entertaining and easy for toddlers
My three year old watches the Martha show on PBS and she took right to this game. It keeps her entertained and she learned to play the games immediately. Plus, the games are fun for me to play along with her so we can have bonding time too.
The plate-licking is both super-gross and satisfying at the same time.
this app is crazy fun. and great for kids. moving the dog's tongue around to lick up the plate is really fun. alot of apps have only one of these games, and this one incorporates all three. solid app.
Very cute animations. Has same voice for Martha as on show. Teaches higher level vocabulary in a fun way.
