Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Flashcards Puzzles - ABC & Numbers is an educational app that blends puzzles with learning the alphabet and numbers. The puzzles are generally easy to solve and give audible clues when you've positioned a piece correctly. Once the puzzle is unscrambled, users see a flash card with a number or letter - and accompanying art (i.e. a bicycle for the letter B or six clouds surrounding the number six). Once the picture is assembled, the app speaks the letter or number aloud to help kids learn it.
Is It Any Good?
Flashcards Puzzles - ABC & Numbers makes learning fun for toddlers and has remedied the biggest flaw in the app's initial release. (The first version didn't read the letters aloud, so kids playing alone didn't get the full educational effect of the game.) With that corrected, it's a terrific learning tool that blends problem-solving with an introduction to letters and numbers that's fun for kids to use themselves -- or with a parent. On the easy level, kids rearrange3-4 rectangular pieces to complete the flashcard, and on the harder level, they work with 5-6 pieces.
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.
