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
Great app for children. I have had a nephew at the age of 3. He is doing fine with calling the number but nothing else. My sister-in-law has found this app somehow and realized that it's easy for her to show him how to count the numbers or the way they're written. It's not the end for this app, she also loves using this because of funny and cute images of monsters which makes her child laugh anytime seeing.
I usually play this app with my 3 year old daughter, she's so interested in simple puzzles. I have never seen such an amusing one like this. It's not only helps her with competence in realizing parts of body through lovely monsters but it also makes her think more whether it's accurate or not if putting a piece in a gap as well. She doesn't want to stop playing.
Good for kids
It's a great educational app! As a teacher of preschool children, i think it's the best way for kids to be closer with from shape to sound or something about accuracy by games. In this app, it has also numbers, sounds or even images. I have tried this in a lesson, the kids are so exited, therefore, I decided to use this app for a long time.
