This simple fun game aims to help children learn the sounds of common objects, vehicles and popular animals. Clear and simple graphics are animated when each sound is heard. Users can select from 12 different categories such as Australian Animals, Domestic Animals, Farm Animals, Wild Animals, Orchestral Instruments, Musical Instruments, Weather, Transport Sounds, Safety Sounds, Household Sounds, Park Sounds and Garden Sounds. Over 100 original rich and colourful sounds and artwork. This Australian based app focuses on sounds heard in Australia, such as animals and safety sounds but also includes objects known anywhere.

Included is a 'Which sound?' game for children to test their knowledge of sounds. A random sound is heard and the child has to select which sound they heard from a choice of 2 images. After 5 consecutive correct answers, they are rewarded with an animated firework celebration.

This app was developed in cooperation with professionals in the field of hearing and vision impairment, and is compatible with iOS VoiceOver software. Careful consideration was taken with sounds used and images displayed on screen.
