Is It Any Good?

NUMBERLYS isn't good -- it's great. It's created by a former Pixar designer, and the story behind this imaginative telling of the creation of the alphabet is charming, funny, and beautiful. It's certain to capture a child's attention -- perhaps more so than any learning app on the market to date.

As much a story as a game, the app is fun for kids who enjoy playing games but easily doubles as a storybook, since all games/puzzles can be skipped without penalty. The characters are cute. The lessons are useful in real life. And the price, although high, is not unreasonable for the quality.

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.
