Reviews of the online game:

This game is the absolute best quality phonics game I have come across for educational and fun value.

Marie Lewis, Rochdale

“My class have reaped loads of benefits from using the programme and the difference in some of their reading skills has been dramatic.

Maria Andrews, Foundation Phase Teacher

This is a fabulous game. I'm not kidding when I say that my daughter essentially learned all her letter sounds using First steps, with relatively minimal input from me! Great for parents to practise their letter sounds too.

Customer Reviews


This app is AMAZING!! I have three boys, 2,4,6. My oldest really struggled with letter sounds so we found this game on the computer. He loved it and improved greatly! The two little brothers wanted to play so badly but they had issues working a mouse.
When I saw it was mobile I bought the app immediately! The little ones can play easily and are learning so much, my 2year old knows all his letter sounds and can read basic words. I am convinced it's because of this app!
The extensions and individual monsters have allowed my 6 year old to advance while the little ones play their monsters at their own level. Even my 16 year old sister has a monster and plays when she visits.
The kids love the story line and collecting their prizes. We have had zero issues with setting up and working this app.

We LOVE it all the way around, THANK YOU!!!!

Awful app

This app is a waste of money. The password options are set up so confusingly that my child has not been able to log in. I've spent about an hour total trying to reset, get in, follow instructions, change the options and none of it is working. Complete waste of money since use now has to play the online version anyway which is what I was trying to avoid.
