Is it any good?

KidCalc is a beautiful collection of easy exercises voiced by the developer's preschool daughter. Each lesson draws math-shy kids in with bright colors and simple games. Familiar objects such as cupcakes and baseball hats are used to visually demonstrate addition and subtraction. In another exercise, each solved math problem reveals another section of a full-screen photograph. The whimsical Count Snowflakes game counts out loud as kids tap snowflakes falling on different pretty scenes.
