Lovely graphics. Best alphabet app I have found.

It's nice, but geared early early learners

The negative is...the letter i tracing pattern features a backwards letter j . The alphabet tracing pattern is way too sensitive, and makes a nasty "fart" sound when you deviate from the pattern even slightly. Way too defeating for a young child who is just beginning. Children need to be right sometimes and it is unforgiving. On the bright side, it did hold my son's attention for a long period of time, and is easy for a child to utilize independently.

Very little content

The program is entertaining for about 10 minutes. Very repetitious noises and very, very little content. My 10 year old with dyslexia reads at a 2nd grade level and easily completed all the tasks in 40 minutes. Some cute characters, but overall not worth the money.
