More about Jamaroos by Iggy Learning
We originally created the 26 Jamaroos Jungle friends to teach language skills and social skills to students in our Reading Friends preschool, which is known for its Alphabet Phonics Curriculum. Based on our success using the Jamaroos characters and their stories in the classroom, we developed apps in order to provide an interactive, and entertaining learning experience for children everywhere. We partnered with the founder of Reel FX, a leading animation studio with experience creating children’s entertainment, to bring the Jamaroos characters and stories to life with rich animation, and an interactive design that rewards every touch.

What's New in Version 1.02
An awesome new jump animation for Al the Alligator
and updates to the Parents page.
My son loves his "iPad time" and was excited to see an app he can relate to that reinforces what he is learning in school! It's also great as his mother to have a better understanding and communication with him about the characters he talks about and brings home. It's a great tool to practice letters and sounds, that also incorporates music. We are big believers in the power of music when it comes to learning. Kudos to Reading Friends for the app!
So much fun
My 22 month old granddaughter has so much fun with this app she does not even realize it is educational. She loves the animal characters and she is beginning to associate the letter and sound with the animal. We really enjoy spending time together playing and exploring the many activities associated with the app. I would definitely recommend it.

We love this app, created for the little one anxious to read. It reinforces phonics in a fun way and is easy for my little one to use. The "for parents" link gives great tips on how parents can help their children make the most of the app.
