Developer Description

“I was immediately blown away by the beautiful artwork and animation.” Wired’s Geek Dad

Help your children learn to read a clock while being entertained by a playful little mouse companion. There are a number of mini games designed to develop specific skills, while all the time keeping the child entertained with humorous animation and sound effects.

This app contextualizes number learning and aids cognitive development by giving a new framework for the use of numbers.
* Learn numbers 1 – 12 through interactive games
* Learn the hours and their position on the clock face
* Interact with the mouse and learn more of this classic nursery rhyme
* Provides early exposure to an abstract concept within an accessible narrative framework.

Learning to tell time is often a challenging concept for some young children. This app uses the familiarity of a favorite nursery rhyme, plus an adorable mouse to help make learning time for young children more approachable and fun. The charismatic mouse bounces, springs and sleeps his way through the story accompanied with humorous sounds effects and animation. The simple and classic nursery rhyme has been extended to create appealing interactive games for each number-rhyme, providing children with both visual and audio cues to help them learn more effectively.

Hickory Dickory Dock simulates real Physics recreating gravity, collision, friction, weight and acceleration in a way that is relevant to the story. From being able to play pinball with the mouse, balancing weights on a set of scales, to bouncing the mouse off the walls of the clock Physics helps make the game more fun and educational.
