Fun interactive App with 4 cool characters to help learn the alphabet in enjoyable and engaging ways for your toddler or young child. This reward-based Alphabet Learning App uses 4 main characters to engage your child: Super Why, Princess Pesto, Wonder Red and Alpha Pig.  Each of them takes your child through a different aspect of the alphabet and word construction.

Super Why the SuperHero:  Finish the sentence of the Fairy Tale.  A well known fairy tale scene is depicted on the screen.  Your child needs to find the missing word from choice of 3. When a word is chosen the sentence is completed with an appropriate picture.  A really fun aspect to this part of the game is that even when your child chooses the incorrect word the picture and sentence created is really funny and it's a great time to hear giggles!!!

Wonder Red: Wonder Red is cool and sporty she helps your child to understand that words rhyme with each other. She tells you the main word and your child has 2 choices of words that may rhyme. Your child can SEE the words that show the same letters to help them.  When they select the word they think it is Red reads is and says whether they are correct or not. The words are grouped in a series of 3 which helps consolidate the knowledge that rhyming words look similar too!

Alpha Pig: Your child helps Pig on his 'Lickity Letter Hunt.  The task it to find all the letters in the specific word.  Each screen displays 3 possible pathways for Pig with 3 corresponding letter selections.  This task is based on letter recognition rather than sound. 

Princess Presto Wands Up Writing: This is a phonics based spelling game with the added bonus of letter tracing.  presto tells you which word you are looking for together.  Out of a check of 4 letters your child chooses the matching sound.  Once the correct letter is chosen you have the chance to trace that letter to consolidate learning.

Every time your child completes the series of exercises they are REWARDED with a sticker choice. Your child can use their stickers in their Sticker Book.

PLAY ALL: This gives a random mixture of all the different characters and their games which adds variety for your child.

Sticker Book: Starts with the 4 characters and the ability to move between 4 different backgrounds.  

A engaging way to learn spelling, sentence structure, phonics, letter recognition, letter writing, rhyming words and the alphabets in general.  The characters are fun, enthusiastic, happy and motivational.  They are bold and brightly coloured to catch your child's attention and hold it.  They always reward your child with a 'well done' and the's nothing negative when they guess it wrong.
