All beginnings are difficult - but not with the Preschoolers ABC Playground. Here, the 26 letters of the alphabet are brought to life in a fantastic way. The six educationally valuable learning exercises are presented in seven different languages and at different levels of difficulty. This provides meaningful support for english lessons at school. The learning app makes preschoolers want to read and write and comes across as charming and playful as usual.

Lovingly drawn and colorfully illustrated animals will help children to learn their letters, which can be read as phonics either as a letter name. Whether alligator, bear, cat or zebra - the fun representatives from the animal kingdom help both boys and girls to play & learn. They learn to recognize upper and lower case letters, to write them or unscramble letters to spell animal names

Preschoolers ABC Playground is not just about learning the alphabet. The app also trains writing in a playful way. Children learn the hand movements using animated flashcards. For this purpose, the letters are traced with the finger or a soft pen and learned automatically in this way. First writing attempts can be saved in the photo album.

By popular request from teachers and parents, we have added an additional section with the numbers 1 - 10. In this section, as with the letters, the first 10 numbers can now be practiced.

There are also 6 exercises analogous to the already known letter tasks:
- Tracing the numbers from 1 - 10
- An overview of these numbers
- The order of the numbers
- What fits?
- Matching the numbers
- A memo game

Occupational Therapist ,

Learning letters can be fun!!!

This is a delightful app for young learners who want to learn about letters. My preschoolers and kindergarteners found this app to be engaging. This app includes 6 different exercises to promote alphabet learning including flashcards, practice, writing, assigning (matching and sequencing), pairs, and words. It was created by a non-educator and states that in the App Store description, so keeping that in mind, it is a very nice app. As an occupational therapist, the prospects of using this app during therapy sessions are great, especially with a few letter formation modifications.

I'm impressed and the kids loved it

This is an attractive, well designed app. A lot of thought went into the interface and options. I let my nephews (ages 5 and 8) play with the app and they loved it. Both had fun trying to do the matching, but it seemed to appeal to the 8 year old more. They both liked the letter practice equally and I had to keep them from fighting over my single iPad! The only thing keeping it from a five is that there's no American English voice.

Nice app with multi language

This app is really nice. My daughter took to it right away-repeating the sound of the letters. I really like that French is one of the language option. I wish that upon seeing a new letter that the letter would be said as well as being sound out and then say the name of the animal: d, duh, dog and d is for dog and so on....

I also like that the letter is traced to show how you should write the letter.
