Once you've mastered the alphabet, phonics is the next step.
Develop phonemic awareness and learn the 9 most common consonant digraphs.

The ideal app to follow the award-winning Hairy Letters.

Hairy Phonics develops phonemic awareness with the introduction of the 9 most common consonant digraphs. This is where two consonants join and make one sound.

- Learn 9 phonemes (sounds): sh, ch, th, ck, ff, ll, ss, zz, ng.
- Guides your child through a structured sequence of learning.
- Phonic animations link an action with the sound.
- Trace the letters with your finger.
- Play games to blend the phonemes into a whole word and improve understanding
- Sound out words and understand how the phoneme changes the sound of the word
- Save all the Hairies and see them dance.

This is a particularly important skill for those with dyslexia.
Designed for 4-6 year olds.
This app is strictly educational and has no in-app purchases.


This is a really great app my son loves it. All the Nessy products are amazing and my son thinks it's such a funny game, so learning and laughing fab. – 100CoolCat

My kids loved the first Hairy app and were excited to play this one. It didn't disappoint as they really enjoyed it. It has a different game to the first one where you build a word for the Hairy guy to slide over. – OJRocks

Not worth money

Very disappointed in this app! I just assumed since I found it through a dyslexia assosciatoon and there were so many that it was a good app. But the amount of content you get for $3 is flat out wrong!!! All of these hairy apps should be together than maybe they would be worth it and still idk it was very repetitive and it showed the child the answer before having them spell the word. And not even in a different format the exact same way they were supposed to do it!

Don't waste the little funds you have as a teacher on this app

Fun and educational with no ads!

Love that it has no ads- makes it far less distracting and easier to learn. Sound works fine for us, just have to be sure the volume is on/ ringer not on silent.
