You may recognize this cute little doggy from the Priddy Books. This is Wallace and he will take your child through an exciting new series of preschool apps from Priddy Books.
The app itself is free, but don’t let that fool you. Once you install the app you can’t do much of anything unless you purchase one or more of the in-game apps. There are currently 5 in-game apps to purchase for $0.99 each (this was the price at the time of this post). I believe they will be adding more in-game apps in the future and I’d imagine they would be the same price as the others.
The current apps available are Counting Fun, My First App, Picture Puzzles, Number Skills, and First Spelling. There is also a Super Shuffle app that unlocks once you purchase at least two of the other apps.
Your preschooler through first grader will work on reading skills, counting skills, problem solving, fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and earn rewards as they go. You can play the app by subject or you can use the Super Shuffle app to combine skills from each of the apps you have purchased.
Counting Fun teaches counting skills as well as number and quantity recognition with the following 6 games – Animal Counting, Touch the Number, Counting Fruit, Toy Shelf, Matching Pairs, and Counting Vehicles.
My First App teaches first words, hand-eye coordination, visual tracking, number skills, and patterns with the following 6 games – Counting Ducks, Animal Sounds, Odd One Out, On Safari, Match the Pairs, and Color It.
First Spelling teaches early spelling and phonics using the following six games – Letter Match, Guess the Sound, Matching First Sounds, Missing Letters, Odd Word Out, and Spell the Word.
Play and Learn with Wallace allows the parent to track their child’s progress, rewards the child with stickers and certificates, and lets you try each app before you buy it.
