Want a switch-accessible app that helps teach and reinforce how to speak, read and spell words, all while playing a game? Crazy Balloons Words is an engaging, fun activity that will do just that!
Crazy Balloons Words was designed with input from kids, parents, teachers and therapists as a way for children to learn, and practice recognizing, high-frequency words - all while playing a balloon-popping game that’s easy to learn but also a challenge.

Ratings and Reviews
Crashes when I play my audio
Simple and love how one can put their own list BUT anytime I play my audio while making a word and playing the game it crashes. Looks like I’m going to need a refund.

In the future, feel free to report bugs or crashes directly to the developers as it can often help to improve the app and gives you an opportunity to be constructive.
