This is a good one

Cute, easy to use for my 3 yr old. Cute and addictive song plays in the background.

Nice Approach

What We Liked:

This is a solid, cute counting app with unique gameplay, it’s simple and repetitive, but my children think its pretty neat. They really like guiding the bees to the flower, and there isn’t anyway to lose, there are no time limitations, it’s a pressure-free environment. The app has been installed for around a year in our home, and I still find my girls flying bees around from time to time. It’s proved to have lasting interest here, even in a home with many, many counting apps. It can be difficult to find counting apps that go up to twenty, but this one does have that entire number range covered!

The entire experience is really fun and playful, almost pastoral. My older girls have fun getting bees to bump into each other and encouraging them to do aerial acrobatics. This app is also one that my girls have played collaboratively, taking turns tracing paths from the bees to the flowers. Only one player can trace at a time, but if they work quickly, multiple bees can be on their paths at one time, one needn’t wait until the bee reaches the flower to select another bee to fly.

Production value is high throughout with excellent artwork, original music, straightforward navigation, and great animation. Pi’ikea Street is definitely on my trusted developer list, their apps are all well designed. The app is simple enough for toddlers to use, but engaging enough that my older children enjoy it as well.

What We Didn’t Like:

There isn’t a way to jump to higher levels, children need to go through each and every level to get up to the 1-20 range of numbers in the fourth level. The amount of repetition on the lower numbers can be a bit annoying to children who are ready for higher number practice but who have mastered the lower ranges.

Overall:

Counting Bees is a uniquely interactive and fun approach to counting and early number recognition from 1-20. This high quality app encourages a relaxed way of playing in a number-enhanced environment and is also multi-lingual, allowing your child to explore counting in eight languages.

Frustrating

Very cute concept and my toddler is eager to try it but he -- and I -- are constantly frustrated. When the bees get close to the flower they bump into each other and are diverted; if there are two or more bees near the flower it can be impossible to get any of them to "land." So disappointing, because Interactive Alphabet is an amazing game and this one has potential ... we really want to like it but it's simply too frustrating.
