What parents need to know

Parents need to know that MathGirl Number Garden is a speed counting game that is designed with girls in mind. The girl-ness of the app is in its choice of garden imagery (you'll count flowers and fingers on gardening gloves) and in the choice of reward -- as you play, you earn stars that you can cash in to get items that you can then use to to decorate and customize a pastel-hued outdoor scene.

Is it any good?

MATHGIRL NUMBER GARDEN drills kids on counting, sorting and grouping objects. Whether or not girls really need those objects to be presented to them in feminine pastel hues is debatable, but it's nice to see any developer aiming a math game at young girls. The time pressure adds a fun element of challenge, making it feel decidedly more game-like than work-like, but this app is really all about reinforcing the ability to group items numerically. And there's even a hidden lesson on budgeting in the way the rewards are doled out -- you get stars for each level completed, but how you spend those stars is up to you.
