ABC DJ – Preschool Lite
By Tap Tap Slide
3 STARS out of 5

This is the look of the paid app. ABC DJ teaches children of all ages and all needs, the alphabet and the basics of phonics in a fun and musical way. After the use of this app, I find myself humming the letter sounds.

The pencil drawn lite version allows the first 9 letters of the alphabet to be tried on both the phonic to letter and phonic to word screen. 2 screens only. The paid version all 6 screens of all the alphabets. Each page in full color.

As the youngsters randomly tap the screen they are successful and begin to fine-tune their movements. Especially helpful for all children including those with learning disabilities, very short attention spans or motor issues.

Included are 3 musical tracks. You can turn on the tracks while the children playing with the app but I find the music distracting when the voice is singing the sounds. But for pure entertainment the songs are old favorites but the musical composition is much more grown up. I appreciate that.

- Tap on a letter or object to hear the phonetic sound of the letter.
- Tap of the discs to play a jingle in the background.
- Tap on each number to see different screens.
- Learn the alphabet and phonics in a fun and musical way!

If you have any questions or problems use this email. The developer is very friendly.

4 STARS out of 5

While the children are playing, they will be learning a lot of animal sounds. As soon as the picture flashes on the screen the animal sound is heard. It was a bit startling at first. Let your child know, “Here comes the animal sounds.” There is a speaker icon tap on it to hear it again.

The real animal pictures are good. There is no verbal naming of the animals just the name of the animal written at the top left corner. The toddler swipes the screen to get the next animal.

Bring the wildlife from all round the world to your children playing this great learning app.

A fun and easy app. You won’t need to carry around a coloring book and crayons. This one has many different brush strokes and many different colors.Every time you lift your finger from the screen the color changes. Tap the white rectangle and you get a new screen in a different color. Tap the pencil icon and the brush stroke changes. Tap the arrow and the last stroke is erased. Tap the reel and the last completed picture turns into a movie. So cool. You will have a real picture of children playing together quietly sharing their masterpiece.

But it is so fun you might be playing along with them or after they are done it is the adults turn. Enjoy!

Noisemaker! Is so easy to use anyone can use it. Those children playing with your device will be amused. They might want to use it at a birthday party. Anyone unable to blow into a noisemaker might want to use this fun and noisy app.

Please hold on to the device while using Noisemaker! I recommend it because it is easy and fun, but I can’t be responsible for the fun, headache from the honking or dropped devices.

Please play responsibly. LOL
