Customer Reviews

Great and simple

My toddler loves this game! I do wish that there was a way to control how many letters appear in the matching game before the song comes on. For example, it would be great if I could just have the first ten letters match before the song comes on, because sometimes the game is just too long for my toddler.

Great for a 1year old

This is a very simple application, cleanly designed with appealing graphics, but effective. Great introductory learning app for babies that know the alphabet and ready to use a tablet or phone.

It has 2 parts: Letter matching pairs and the alphabet song.

* Phonetic mode (most common sound of a letter) is available, learning the letter sounds is probably the best way to ready children for reading
* The alphabet song can be set to phonetic mode as well, only app that seems to have it
* The letter case of matching pairs can be customized

* Baby learned the phonetic sounds of the letters so fast, she moved to First Words Pro, a pricy but worthwhile app.

First Letters and sounds

Love this game for my 3 yr old, and especially love that it does sounds and names.
