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!

Here's what educators and reviewers have said about our First Words apps:

“First Words is an app that teaches letters and words in fun and interactive way. Very easy to use these apps will help support your little ones learning with great illustrations and bright colors. Each app supports kids learning and encourages kids to explore and discover by revealing, rewarding and teaching.”
-- Fun Educational Apps

“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.'"
---Shannon Des Roches Rosa at Squidalicious

Fantastic learning tool

My two year old daughter has been playing this game for coming up for a year & is constantly astounding people with her ability to name pretty much every colour, point to magnetic letters on the fridge when asked where each letter is & name them if you just show her the letter, &, perhaps not such a good thing, she can recognise a few words if we try to spell them out to try to get one over on her! No getting C A K E past this one unfortunately...!
Just a shame it has a bug at the moment, otherwise it's wonderful!

Great app, improvements on the way

I like this app. My toddler likes this app. Yes it's annoying that there isn't a British version, but they are working on it.

And as for the hog complaint in an earlier review, it's a British word too, look it up.

Keep them Quiet!!

This is superb! Keeps my 22 month old son entertained whilst out and about, particularly when having meals, coffees etc. Useful settings (turning off assists and voice) allows this to get harder as the child learns the words.

Free samples are available - I would advise trying those out.

Hopefully we will see a similar product with foreign words soon!
