Teacher Review

Young children will certainly be attracted to the clear, crisp and colourful design of this app.  Supplemented by its softly playing music, cute sound effects and clear narration this forms a polished and fun experience to assist children’s learning of numbers, letters, colours and sequences.

HooplaKidz Fun with ABC and 123 makes the very sensible decision to keep things simple and to reuse its main mechanics of interaction.  In each of the well designed and well-focussed sections, children’s existing familiarity with using the app lets them concentrate on the games and hence their learning.  Each one effectively mixes its educational value into a fun activity.  In the recognition based sections, such as identifying letters, colours, and numbers, children solve a simple four piece jigsaw before answering a question about it.  For example, having built the letter ‘A’, children are asked to identify what starts with that letter from a choice of three pictures.  The last two sections involve completing sequences of numbers and the English alphabet.  In these the missing number or letter is to be dragged to the appropriate space.

The app is perfectly suited to both being used by an adult supported child and by children alone.  Every instruction and interactive element has speech associated with it and is clear and friendly sounding, leading to it being very supportive of independent learning.  A useful repeat button is present on the screen for those times when a child needs to hear something again.  Navigating through the different sections is not going to create any problems for children as they can just scroll and tap through them.  The ever present steam train in this app forms the basis of some of the tasks and its menu, where children pull the train along to access the different sections through its carriages.  The app makes the welcome choice of not having any options or screens that are not part of the main content and so children won’t find themselves confused while browsing to new sections.

There are many apps out there that are the equivalent of only one of the five sections included in this one and it is refreshing to see a developer build an app that feels fully developed.  Having a feel of the traditional book of numbers or letters for young children, but with the extra engagement and interaction that modern technology affords, HooplaKidz Fun with ABC and 123 promises to provide a favourite source of learning for children that they will enjoy returning to over time.
