Introducing simple, useful, every day Te Reo Māori words.

"He aha tēnei?" (What is this?) is an interactive Te Reo Māori drag and drop game for kids and their caregivers.

Match each part of the word to hear it pronounced. Complete the word to hear it in full.

Included are every day words such as pōtae (hat), tāheke (slide), whare (house) and more.

Pāpapa believes in nurturing the special language bond between kids and their caregivers, honouring the breadth, depth and beauty of Te Reo Māori vocabulary and providing fun via at-your-own-pace activities.

All Māori language features (words and phrases) used in our apps are quality assured by licensed translators certified by Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori (The Māori Language Commission).

Just what was needed!

An awesome app, was hoping one like this would of been created. This is perfect for my son to learn from. Children pronounce the words, the images are colourful and certainly captures his attention. Hopefully another one is released with numbers and colours etc. awesome awesome app!
