Unlock everything through an in-app purchase of $1.99. The settings menu has an option to turn off the background music and the sound effects.

What's it about?

BIBI NUMBERS 123 - KIDS GAMES' home screen shows 16 animal characters; scroll left or right to find them all and tap on one to jump into a game. Activities have kids tracing numbers, painting by numbers, matching quantity to number, counting, sorting by smallest to biggest, and so on. After several rounds of each activity, kids hear a celebratory song and can choose to play again or exit out to choose a different game.

Is it any good?

These simple number games are clearly designed to grab young kids' attention though their educational value is a bit less clear. Some activities are somewhat creative, such as one in which kids help a target number of Bibis cross the road and a narrator counts along or another where kids arrange columns from shortest to tallest. Others are standard early number learning fare, like tracing a number, or don't seem to have enough support to help kids actually learn numbers. There are also lots of opportunities for distraction. It's nice the parents can choose from nine different languages, but if they want their kids to hear the narrator count and say numbers out loud, they need to keep the sound effects turned on. And with the sound on, the Bibis keep saying "Bibi" every few seconds which gets pretty annoying very quickly. Also, after every few rounds of an activity, there's a long celebration song with balloons or other items to "pop." These features contribute to a general feeling that Bibi Numbers 123 - Kids Game has more features to keep kids hooked to the screen rather than to teach them numbers. If parents can ignore that aspect, they may find a handful of fun number games that are sure to entertain their little ones.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the numbers featured in Bibi Numbers 123 - Kids Games. Help your kids count as they point to each object and say the numbers out loud. How many apples are there? 

  • Make numbers and integral part of your daily routine. Count how many steps it takes to go from the living room to the kitchen, how many dogs you see walking down the street, or how many pushes you give on the swing at the playground. Encourage your kids to join you.

  • When kids are having fun, it might be hard for them to put down the device. Transitions can be particularly difficult for young kids. Be clear with your kids about your family's rules and expectations around screen time.
