Works Wonderfully!


The sound is great and the animations are adorable! I read other reviews about sound issues and I was a little worried. It really is a great "learning while you don't realize it" type of app that we like. We have the spelling one too and it's been great. I don't know if this will help you guys, but we always reboot our iPad after installing a new app. We had trouble with another one a while back from a different company and that is what was suggested. You just hold the Sleep/Wake button (the one on top by the camera) and the home button (the circle one on front with the grey square) at the same time a few seconds, slide to power off. Wait until it powers off, then hold the Sleep/Wake again to power back on. Hope this helps you guys.



Seems like a great app with a good variety of activities. But the sound is not working which is a major disappointment since this was not a cheap purchase! Hope this is resolved quickly.

Just okay


Dear daughter has warmed up to this one, but I'm still not sure. Could get the movies from other sources for free (tho daughter really likes these) the draw/paint could also be found in other apps for cheaper (plus, the click to paint game seems like a major zapper of creativity). Dot to dots are a little small, so the dots are sometimes blocked by finger. The actual learning games with letters, numbers, etc. are the reason I purchased the app, and daughter enjoys them well enough, but as far as I can tell there is no way to save progress. so if she gets to second level by completing ten questions correctly, then wants to watch a movie, then back to letters, she has to start back at beginning. There's no way I'd want her repeating those easy levels on every game every time she plays the game... She'd be on the iPad all day just trying to get to more challenging puzzles.
