"The coolest thing about WEE ALPHAS is that it takes the approach that just because kids need to learn the basics like ABCs, doesn't mean they have to be bored. In fact, this app is quirky enough to entertain the parents playing the app with the kids ... Wee Alphas is a standout example of a fun, quality preschool education app."
-Dana Villamagna, Common Sense Media
"Brilliant! It's fun for kids, and not at all boring for adults. So smart, simple, intriguing, thoughtful and well-designed. It's quite possibly a cosmic sign signifying the end of kids' books printed on paper."
-Charles S. Anderson, world renowned designer and founder, CSA Design Company and CSA Images
"I love it! My favorite is Charlie the Chipmunk because he has a cheese flag and I like cheese. Also I tap tap tap and change Violet's hair to a ponytail or something." (giggle) "My special letter is Q."
-Quinn, age 3
"Hipster parents rejoice! A fabulously designed app called Wee Alphas is here!! The beautifully stylized animal characters in Wee Alphas makes one think of Mid-Century Modern meeting Sesame Workshop ... a visually stunning, fun-to-use app for kids."
The somewhat silly stories and quirky illustrations of Alexander the Angelfish, Biki the Buffalo, and their furry, feathered or finned friends, are full of surprises.

Ratings and Reviews
I like it but...
There needs to be an option to silence the music and keep the narration. The narrator and the music is a bit busy.
I don't love that the letter names are not said on each page and that some of them have the letter repeat in many of the words but others are only twice but overall it's a cute app.
Alpas is awesome.
My daughter may be too young to know her A, B, C's, but she can’t get enough of the silly, adorable animals. And without knowing it, she’s starting to absorb the foundation of letters. Major bonus is that it’s a gorgeous app that is also teaching her to appreciate great design.
Thank you Wee Society!
This app is full of beautiful animations that help little ones learn their ABCs. My friend's 3 1/2 year old loves it!
