My daughter was diagnosed with dyslexia and this app shows her the phonics sounds along with a picture for the words she is building. It is great in the way that she wants to play the game and laughs at all the videos that goes with the sounds. In addition to her reading struggles she also has problems with writing and she is asked to follow the path to make the letters correctly as well. She doesn't seem to realize that she is learning and playing at the same time. She is already asking if there is a hairy phonics 3 as well.

My son loves it and had really helped him with his phonics.

Great Nessy Supplement

My daughter loves Hairies! This app is a great supplement to what she is learning with the full Nessy program.

Hoping for more

Was really hoping for a bit more to this game but it's the same thing over and over which caused my daughter to lose interest pretty quick. Would have liked a trial to test out the app. Also no sound on my iPad mini which doesn't help in the learning of sounds. Not worth $3... maybe .99
