The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Educational value

Kids can learn numbers from 1 to 25 and practice some basic addition. They'll be exposed to the numbers several times, seeing the numeral and hearing its name, hearing the count sequence, and understanding the idea of the number from a funny animated video. There are no manipulatives involved with the addition section, so from that kids will mostly just understand the concept of the plus and equal sign and what addition is. Endless Numbers's cute characters and repeated exposures to numbers can help kids learn their numbers to 25.

Ease of play

Swiping, tapping, and dragging are intuitive in this preschool-friendly app.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Endless Numbers brings back the adorable monsters from Endless Alphabet to teach kids numbers, counting, and basic addition. Each number is a different car on a Ferris wheel, and kids can rotate the wheel to select a number. The free app includes the numbers 1 through 5, with numbers 6 through 25 available as an in-app purchase. If parents have not purchased the full number set, those numbers still appear but are shadowed and have a lock on the door of the Ferris wheel's car. If kids select that car, the Grown-Ups Only! screen appears with a lock code that must be entered.

What's it about?

Little monsters ride a Ferris wheel with 25 numbered cars. Kids choose a car, and then explore that number. They'll drag a monster version of the number into place, as it says its name over and over. Then kids touch the monster-number's eyes to wake it up -- and each monster-number has its number of eyes. A cute animation demonstrates the number, like a monster on a unicycle for one. Finally, kids explore some basic math, with addition number sentences or skip counting, before advancing to the next number.

Is it any good?

Kids explore each number at their own pace with no pressure to get an answer right. Each number's name is repeated often as kids tap it, reinforcing number recognition, and the count sequence is spoken often, too, reinforcing that. Kids will be delighted by the adorable animations for each number -- like four baby monsters rolling up in a baby carriage or a little ducky being surprised by two skunks. Parents will appreciate the depth as kids are exposed to skip counting and basic addition as well as number recognition. An expansion pack that includes counting by tens up to 100 would make Endless Numbers even better.
