Overall excellent- needs some diversity

Your child will learn a couple of skills with this app. Besides learning letters and their sounds (can toggle to the sounds when your kiddo has their letters down). This game requires finger grabs, pulls and other fine motor skills to advance through the ‘game’. Also simple to challenging games/tasks to complete to advance through the alphabet. By 2, my son could work out about 2/3rds of the challenges. It took another year for him to complete the last few on his own. (Moving an item so you can catch falling candy/fruit eluded him)(the pig terrified him?!?) Another skill is shape matching. As each word is achieved the letters are then scrambled and the player needs to drag each letter to its space/shape in the word. Before they are even familiar with letters and their sounds this is a good visual matching game. Beck and Bo are pretty cute, but The developers could add some diversity to the little players though. They are basically two little Caucasian kids.

Kids are solving problems and having fun while learning about letters. The adventure includes 26 different activities -- one for each letter of the alphabet -- for kids to solve, and each is delightfully fun. Some will challenge kids (like putting the xylophone parts in order or assembling a robot). Others will make them giggle (like jumping on jiggly jelly or changing a dirty diaper). They're all adorable and reinforce letter recognition and discovery. The gentle voice narration won't overstimulate kids, and they'll get lots of encouragement. The graphics and details are impressive -- everything seems to be made from cardboard. The options for customization make this a real winner -- parents can turn off the word spelling for younger players and turn it back on to increase the challenge. Kids can work on uppercase letters or lowercase letters, have sound effects and/or music on or off, and work through the letters in alphabetical order, randomly, or by selecting a specific letter.
