Eli Explorer appeals to a child’s innate curiosity and fascination with flying. They are eager to explore the magical world with a flying bunny and discover the hidden animations and interactions. This gives children a meaningful experience with words and phrases which make them easy to learn and remember. Children will repeatedly play their favorite interaction so they absorb the meaning of new words and improve pronunciation through repetition.

A wonderful experience!

Eli Explorer is a great little title and is sure to educate kids around the world. Full of color, interesting characters and locations, this game champions exploration. The cherry on top is of course that it teaches children about words and proper pronunciation. Overall a great title, completely recommend. Excited to see what comes next!

Not working on iOS 14

These were great apps but have stopped working on iOS 14. I noticed none of the apps have been updated in 4 years. Maybe the DEV is no longer supporting. Have caution before purchasing.
