What Reviewers are saying:
By Peggy A
"Cutie Monsters" is an endearing application that will appeal to toddlers as well as early readers. In addition to teaching children numerical and counting skills, children can use the application to read the simple story. They can either read to themselves, or press the words, and have the story read to them. If stuck on a word, they can press on it, and a pleasant male voice will read the word to them. The Arabic numerals pop up on each screen as the monsters are touched.
One of the most charming aspects of this app is the unique noises made by each of the monsters when they are touched. The noises are cute, and they are not scary at all. The birds even chirps when touched! The monsters are also animated, and touching them makes them move.
The interactive jigsaw puzzles are fantastic, too. The pieces can be dragged over to the correct place on the silhouette; if the child is not correct, the piece will return to its original position on the background. When the monster has been pieced together properly, the app responds with a round of cheering, and the monster does a little animated celebration dance.
The background music is nice, and it won't annoy caretakers, either. ;) The drawings and the colors are pretty and eye-catching. It's easy to understand why this is an award-winning app!

What Reviewers are saying:
"For me this app is a model of the high quality app with a piece of developer's heart in it :) I download first and then delete dozens of space to free space on my iPad. I will leave this one for myself. To describe it in one word - AWESOME! Illustrations, sounds, animations - everything is AWESOME. I keep on clicking the monsters both in puzzles and in the counting game to hear their funny sounds and watch them come to live, like a kid! And, by the way, you will find NO LINKs in the app." Svetlana Korneliuk, AppyMall.com
Fun, Educational, and Such CUTE Little Monsters!
As someone with two young godchildren, I am always looking for fun, educational, and affordable little games to load on my iPad for those rainy days or just for a special surprise. The graphics are great (no scary monsters here) and the puzzles are 3-6 pieces, which means even very young learners can succeed on it and begin to ENJOY learning from a very young age.
The developers have really kept their target audience in mind- there are many prompts in the app to help little learners to complete the task on the screen.
Overall, highly satisfied with my purchase, and strongly recommend it for your own little ones!
One of the best apps for kids I've seen
This is an extraordinarily well-made app for kids, and the care and attention to detail by the developers shows. You basically get three apps in one: an app that helps kids learn to count to 10, another that lets them play with simple jigsaw puzzles, and another that helps them to read and listen to how words sound. Along the way there are cute little squeaky monster sounds and animations to keep kids entertained too. I highly recommend this app! It's won a number of awards for a good reason, and I'm sure your kids will love it.
Babysitter of my dreams!
This was an extraordinary puzzle game for Preschoolers! I let my two nieces take on this App and they were thrilled! THey were able to use it right away and didn't need much help navigating. This app was able to hold their attention while teaching counting, reading, and fine motor skills while always having fun. The sounds and graphics were top notch. For being a paid app, it exceeded our expectations. Thanks again for helping teach children that learning can be come from anywhere!
