Description from the product page:
"Did you know that letters could sing? Welcome to the Ministry of Letters' Singing Alphabet. We have worked with experts in child development to ensure this app will engage children with the world of letters and word making in a completely new and imaginative way. Our letters are fun and friendly characters that children will love playing with.
Each time a child presses a letter it will sing its phonetic sound. Your child can press as many letters as they want and the tune will always sound harmonious. Children can enjoy creating new songs with different combinations of letters or singing along with a single letter and practicing its sound!
They can explore making their own words by pressing the pen at the bottom of the screen to show the letters they have chosen. They can hear what the words sound like when they sing and enjoy playing with different combinations. Practicing the weekly spelling test with your child will never be so enjoyable!
This is a fun, engaging app to encourage children to really enjoy the alphabet and have fun making words. It entertains a range of ages with younger children discovering the alphabet for the first time and older ones competing to make the best words."
* I love the interesting and catchy tunes of the letters!
* I like the idea of teaching letters of the alphabet in this creative and fun way!
* Even my 9 months old girl can't resist and tap along!
Room for Improvement?
* I hope the length of the characters tapped can be extended more as I can't seem to type my first child's name, which is 'Benjamin'.
