Developed by award winning children’s designer Mark Schlichting, creator of the best selling Living Books series of interactive children's books, Noodle Words is the first in a series of animated Word Toys, Noodle Words encourages emerging readers ages 4-7 to discover word meanings like they never have before.

Through interactive play, our set of 18 active words come to life as the Noodle Bugs demonstrate word meanings with their highly animated antics. Young readers can interact with the words or the cute bugs using the iPad's touch screen. They literally play with the words to make SPIN spin and JUMP jump.

Not all children learn to read the same way. Exposure, repetition, and context all help build relationships to vocabulary and understanding. Noodle Words is a word toy designed to offer emerging readers a playful modality for language acquisition and word comprehension. Kids of all ages can explore at their own pace, and develop a love of word play through direct interaction. It's even designed to draw-in the most hesitant early reader.

Noodle Words is a wonderful app to play with your children. Some kids love to show off what they can do, and others love to laugh with you when the Noodle Bugs do something silly. We hope playing together with your children brings you the same joy we had while making this app.

Customer Reviews

It is ok to play with your words!

Noodle Words HD - Action Set 1. What a joyful and just plain fun app to teach action words and basic iPad skills. This is not a flash card or drill is learning by literally playing with words. For example, the word stretch can be stretched and then snaps like a rubber band across the page. The word sparkle, lights up and sparkles! And if that isn't enough, you have two delightful bug hosts, acting out the words to help reinforce learning. Skills such as dragging and dropping, using both hands to shake things up, and using fine motor skills to pinch and pull words apart is presented in such an original and unique way that it helps kids gain meaning to words and retain what they are doing. This is certainly an app that helps bridge using letters to form words. There are no ads or IAPs- and this is one of the few times that I wish there were as I wanted more. Highly Recommended.

Noodle Words HD - Action Set 1

I was a little nervous to get my son this app as I was not sure what it would offer him or if he would enjoy it. It turns out he is LOVING this app! The little bugs that animate the words are cute and he loves seeing them interact with each other and act out the words (spin, jump, and other action words). He has many fun games and books on his iPad but he has been going back to Noodle Words since I downloaded it earlier this week.
If you have a child who is learning vocabulary words and may be reluctant to work with action word flashcards, like mine is, this is a fantastic app for letting your child work on his own, but still getting great words practiced both to hear and to see the spelling.

Great Action Word Vocabulary App

It's a simple enough concept -- the printed words do what they mean. But it's all in the execution and everything is done perfectly. The animations and sound effects are beautifully synchronized and the bugs are adorable. I am a school speech language pathologist and I love using this to teach action words to my younger students. This app is particularly great for my students on the autism spectrum who learn so well through video modeling. More words would make it even more wonderful but I absolutely feel like I've gotten my money's worth. Everything is cleverly thought out and the production quality is top notch. Great for school, great for families. Thank you!
