Features of Rocket Speller PLUS - Little Big Thinkers:
This is one of our favourite educational games. Our children from 3 to 9 all play this game which is based on the principle of learning while having fun!
Within each 'round' your child spells 12 different words, the length of the words is determined by the skill level you have selected. Zip, the cute alien appears on the screen, with a picture, a corresponding word and the jumbled up letters that make that word. Your child's task is to place the letters correctly to make up the word. After your child places all the letters correctly the word and each letter are pronounced again to reinforce learning. Choose from Upper or Lower case letters and choose your skill level from 1 - 5.
After correctly putting together their first 3 words your child starts to build their own rocket ship! A selection of base, body and rocket tops appear for your child to choose from. The rockets are bright, colourful and the backgrounds are appealing and engaging! After building their rocket in 3 stages your child gets to watch the friendly alien Zip climb aboard. Now you are Ready to launch...push the Big red button, enjoy the countdown and watch your rocket blast off into space...so satisfying! Fly your rocket in space by moving it left and right and collect the stars on your journey as an added reward and bonus, which the children adore!
The selection of rocket parts increases as the skill level progresses, giving the older children more choice, which holds their attention. A very well thought out game - well done developers!!!
Due to the vast choice within the levels this educational game is perfect for children of all ages and great for special needs learning. An all round excellent educational game that's lots of fun.
