* Finalist for the BestAppEver Award: Toddler Apps *
The best-selling reading game for kids has gotten even better! We've added more words, more languages, and phonics. First Words Deluxe provides endless fun for the toddlers in your life, all while giving your child a head start on learning their letters and learning to spell words.
Now with Spanish, French, German, Japanese, plus US and UK English.
First Words Deluxe is toddler-tested and approved, with a user-interface designed specifically for the littlest of fingers. The game includes over 150 words in five kid-friendly categories:
** Animals **
** Vehicles **
** Colors **
** Shapes **
** Words from around the house **
(Fewer words are shown when the phonics option is selected, because many English words are not spelled phonetically. A total of 68 phonics words are included.)
A wide range of options let you tune the game to match your child's current skills and abilities.
If your child is old enough to ask for your phone, they're old enough for First Words Deluxe!

“Excellent - As a teacher, I love this game! Just what technology was meant to do!”
-- iTunes Review
“This app has great settings that let you control the level of difficulty for the child – either with lots of hints or almost none at all. The letters slide nicely into each word and when completed the child is rewarded by having the pictured animal enlarge and animate briefly.”
--Carisa Kluver at Digital Stortyime
“First Words Deluxe is a very straightforward word-building game. Words are either said letter by letter as they are dragged into the appropriate gray boxes or, if chosen in the settings, a smaller set of words can be sounded out with phonics. This makes this game a treat for both pre-readers and early spellers.”
--Common Sense Media
“Looking to guide your toddler towards recognizing letters and how to spell words up to eight letters long? Then First Words Deluxe might be just what you are looking for. This pre-reader and spelling application encourages vocabulary development in a wide range of categories such as: vehicles, animals, at home, colors, and shapes.”
--Andrea Gardner at Applicable2u
"First Words is a great app -- as I said at the time, 'Leo loves First Words because it's fun and easy. I love it because he's learning to spell words, and the interface makes that learning error-free.'"

Ratings and Reviews
My 2 year old LOVES this. He is learning all the words!
This version has awful (simple) graphics. Also, the bulk of the vocabulary is three-letter words, which are front-loaded at the beginning of the list. Further, you cannot randomize the word sequence, meaning you have to go through the three-letter words over and over again before you get to the longer-words. My little guy gets bored when he sees the same words over and over again.
Developer Response ,
Actually, the word order is an option that you set from the Options screen. You have the choice of shortest-to-longest, alphabetical, or random. We agree that it would be boring to always start with the same few words!
