I purchased this app about 1.5 yrs ago for my (then) 3 y.o. son. He has loved this app from the start. It's still his go-to activity on the ipad. I love the fact that as he has learned the concepts the mini-games become more challenging. The games seem to adapt to his skill-level. They will start easy, then get more difficult to longer he plays. It's probably one of the best app purchases I have ever made!

Bugs and Numbers is an app that all the kids in your home -- from preschool through early elementary school -- can enjoy and learn with. The variety of skills covered is not often found in apps -- kids can learn their numbers, how to count money and tell time, and develop an understanding of fractions all in one app. The graphics are incredibly realistic (beautiful, actually, if you agree that bugs are beautiful). Parents can set up separate accounts for multiple kids by going to settings on their device and finding Bugs and Numbers.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
