This app offers true play and discovery for each letter of the alphabet. Each letter features an interactive game. Kids learn over time how the buttons affect the game-play and learn how to move and manipulate the objects. In addition to phonics, letter sounds and words, this app includes many sounds from nature and from everyday objects including: bees, birds, seagulls, dinosaurs, elephant, fish, horse, cow, sheep, airplanes, lightning, rain, zebras, koala bears, monkeys, piano, mice, parrot, raccoon, seal, whale, xylophone and more!
What makes this app so unique is that each of these letter games are open-ended games that the toddlers can explore and understand over time.

Ratings and Reviews
This would be a fun app for classroom use if it included sound. All of the prompts require children to hear the word being read, yet there is no sound. All my other non-TapFun brand apps are working fine. This was a waste of $6.99 (bought the bundle).
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
