From the BAFTA nominated pre-school learning TV shows Alphablocks and Numberblocks, we bring you Alphablocks Letter Fun!
Your little ones are going to LOVE interacting with the Alphablocks in this amazing App. It’s hugely entertaining to play and makes a real difference to their reading through fun, multisensory learning.
Alphablocks has been on TV for nearly a decade, helping millions of children learn to read the fun way. Now your little ones can meet all the Alphablocks from A to Z, learning letters and sounds with four great phonics mini-games and a fantastic singalong song.
"Alphablock A says a! when an apple lands on her head! "
Every Alphablock is designed to make their letter and sound easy to learn, encouraging kids to interact with the characters and really get to know the alphabet. They’ll have great fun getting hands-on with letters and sounds.
* No in-app purchases *
There are four minigames per Alphablock — that’s over 100 great activities for kids to enjoy!
◆ Bubble pop! — match letters to sounds by popping the bubbles that match the sounds you hear.
◆ Paint me — listen to letter sounds as you paint each Alphablock with your finger.
◆ Favourite things — listen out for words that begin with each letter sound and add them to the Alphablock’s collection of favourite things.
◆ Hide and seek — listen carefully to tell letter sounds apart, and see if you can spot where the Alphablock is hiding.
▸ ALPHABLOCKS LETTER SONG
Sing along with the Alphablocks as they all get together to sing their letter sounds in a mnemonic song that kids will love and remember!
▸ LETTER SOUNDS AND NAMES
When your child has mastered their letters and sounds, change to Letter Name mode and have fun learning all the letter names too.
▸ EARN STARS
Every minigame earns a star. Collect all four stars to watch the Alphablock sing their line from the Alphablocks letter song. Can you light up all the stars for all your Alphablocks? (The app keeps your progress between visits. You can reset it if you want to start again or to let a friend or sibling play.)
▸ FULL OF FABULOUS PHONICS
Alphablocks is made by teachers and reading experts. It’s built around systematic synthetic phonics, as taught in UK schools. Alphablocks is a step-by-step reading system with episodes, books and more that has helped over a million children learn to read the fun way.

Developers listened and I’m happy my kid will learn more!
Edit: updated from 4 to 5 stars after the proactive work of devs on resolving unexpected way kids behave!
Our school recommended this app and the quality of the app is worth the money easily.
However there’s a couple of things which I would love to get a response from the devs about.
1. the painting game has already been mentioned as it’s not very articulate due to the chain of sounds it produces. But we have an answer from the devs about that.
2. If there was a competition to find out which kid pronounced the letter “a” best, my kid won win.
You see the problem is when the games starts, it starts with the letter “a” my son will just play the games associated with that over and over again. He won’t move to “b”.
There needs to be some kind of voice prompt or even “disable” feature which forces a child to move to the next letter. I can’t remember my son ever willing moving beyond the letter “a”. I think “c” is the furthest he’s gone. I’ve tried to explain to him but to no avail.
Please find a solution!
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your feedback. We have made an update that we think you will like.
The game now moves automatically to the next Alphablock when they have finished the current Alphablocks games so hopefully, your son will now be able to get past "c" :)
We have also included an option to disable the Painting Sounds which I'm sure you will be happy about.
Wanted to love this more
Our little one loves Alphablocks and thought this would be worth the money for an upcoming journey we have to make. However the colouring in with extremely annoying repetitive letter sound is just too much. Surely that part could have been a letter writing exercise instead?
Developer Response ,
Hi, we are happy to hear that your little one loves Alphablocks but we are very sorry to hear you found the painting game annoying. We’ve found that a lot of children really enjoy the colouring in - and because their touch is completing the letter and making the sound it helps them link each letter sound with the letter shape. Many young children can master letters and sounds before letter formation and handwriting, and so this is a deliberately simple approach.
We’ll take your comment on board - we’re working on other apps and improvements to this one and will see what we can do.
I really thought for the price there’d be more to it. My daughter loves the colouring and will happily colour all 26 colours of the alphabet. She enjoyed the other games too - even if I had to convince her that the picture in the heart game was a Deer and not a Reindeer. Some of the pictures are a little unclear - gates for a zoo? Pointless unless you can read the word zoo above the gates.
But there’s no progression? Once you’ve done the four games per letter it becomes too repetitive to do 26 times - with a new letter or not.
And the song is nice for them to sing to but I was really hoping for some blending or options for the kids to put some of the letters together?
All in all a little limited.
