More than just a game, First Words Animals is a powerful educational tool for the toddlers and kids in your life. It provides hours of fun, laughter and learning.

If your child is old enough to ask for your phone, they're old enough for First Words Animals!

* Now with French, German, Japanese, Spanish, plus British and American English *

First Words Animals will help your child:

* Develop fine motor skills
* Learn to recognize and match letters
* Learn the names of letters
* Learn the sounds English letters make (phonics)
* Learn how to spell words

Of course, they won't just be learning, they'll also be laughing and having fun with 45 of their favorite animal friends, beautifully illustrated and matched with entertaining animal sounds.

First Words Animals is toddler-tested and approved, with a user-interface designed specifically for the littlest of fingers. More than just a game, it is a sophisticated learning tool that engages your child, encourages exploration, and helps them begin building a deep understanding of the relationships between letters and words.

A variety of options let you adjust the difficulty level to match the abilities of your younger or older kids. In addition to English, your child can now learn the names of their favorite animals in French, German, Japanese and Spanish.

Kids can play First Words by themselves, but they also enjoy bringing their grownups along, talking about the animals, saying the names of the letters, and watching the animals spin around and sound off.

Good game

Daughter 2yrs 2mths old loves this and learnt how to use in in less than 30 seconds!

Excellent app! My daughter is 2 years and 2 months old and she saw the 'cat' icon and wanted to play on my iPhone. I showed her how to use the app by doing 3 words then getting her to do three words with me. After that she was able to use it herself! She loves this app and finds it easily because of the cute cat icon.. She calls it 'cat' and asks to play it. She can move the letters into the word in a couple fo quick moves. My wife was amazed at her speed. It's bacause this came is perfect for young kids!

I love this app!!!

This app is absolutly brilliant. My 22 month old son loves it! He will navigate though 10 pages of apps till he finds this one. The game is easy enough that he can play without getting too frustrated, but challanging enough to keep him engaged. I love the fact that you can choose whether or not to have the hints on. Only thing I would like to see would be some animation.
