"Explore Lexi’s World, an enchanting app that provides a gentle introduction to letters, words, animals, and actions. The playful landscape allows young children and caregivers ample opportunities for rich interaction with each other. Surprises abound as children bring words to life and reveal discoveries about cause and effect." — http://www.ala.org/alsc/welcome-excellence-early-learning-digital-media-award-home-page
"For a young child, cracking the reading code can be hard work. This app bridges the distance between letters and meaning by turning letters into living building blocks. As a child types, she builds items that appear on the screen." — http://www.bolognachildrensbookfair.com/en/bologna-childrens-book-fair-awards/bolognaragazzi-digital-award/2019-winners/2019-mentions/7174.html
In Lexi's World, words are magic spells that bring their meanings to life.
Lexi lives on a tiny planet. Using a special keyboard that only allows words that exist to be entered, children can add animals and food to the world. Type "bunny" and a small bunny appears. Type "carrot" so Lexi can feed the bunny.
This is a gentle experience that encourages exploration through a simple world-building mechanism and does not have any reward loops. You can't collect stars to buy a new outfit for Lexi. You can make stars though! First make it dark using the special code: "night," then type "star." You can make as many stars as you want!
Lexi's World was made with love, tested with kids who proved its value and suggested many of the interactions - of course, "Lexi should be able to ride the horse." Now she can.

Ratings and Reviews
An app that makes me feel better about screen time
Love it!! I never write reviews, but really want to support this app. I first saw Lexi’s World on my friend’s iPad and enjoyed the cute animations and interactions with animals. There’s a few surprises that just make me want to discover more. I also love that it’s reminiscent of The Little Prince’s whimsy and innocence. And lastly, the big bonus was - in a world of kid apps and stories devoid of diversity - the character is a person of color.
So, this is shortlisted as apps I feel good about showing my two-and-a-half year old. I didn’t know whether she’d understand it, since she rarely gets screen time. Nonetheless, her love of the alphabet and the app’s intuitiveness both really helped. She can tap to get butterflies and balloons. She caught on that certain words react to each other like elephants and puddles.. It’s really just adorable seeing her reaction to all the delightful things in the app.
I can’t wait to see what’s to come for Lexi’s World!
Developer Response ,
A review that makes us feel even better about reviews!
Thank you, this review captures so much of how we hoped that Lexi's World would be received. We are so happy that you have been enjoying it with your child.
A whole new world
I have a 4 year old that I’ve been reading to consistently and decided to try this educational app as a effort to retain words. Ever since I’ve introduced this app to Evan, it’s taken a huge load off of me as a parent! The simple interface and concept allows me to visually pair words with objects. Most children are visual learners that need proactive interaction to aid their development. Using this game with Evan has already helped his breadth of words and objects. Most 4 year olds have limited attention spans, yet Evan is able to stay fixated on this game for a good hour per day. Before going to bed, I’ll go through this game with Evan to help teach while bringing him down. The music is perfect to aid in going to sleep time. Amazing app that significantly helps children learn!
Excellent app, Support is wonderful!
Our son loves this app. He was sad when we had an issue, but the developer was *incredibly* responsive and helped us fix right away. I was blown away. By the way, I think the problem was unique to our iPad / app install, not any issue with the app itself.
We are beta testing the next version, and it looks amazing. We are looking forward to supporting app well into the future. :-)
