Little ones learn their ABC's the fun way with AbcDay!

My other job is running an in-home day care/pre-school. A big part of my day is helping the 4 year olds meet certain requirements before they enter Kindergarten. The biggest obstacle is learning and being able to recognize their ABCs. Enter in the fun interactive BlackBerry PlayBook app by Vostrix called AbcDay. The kids get to sing, pop bubbles & draw with a turtle all while learning those essential building block, the ABCs.

Features include:

  • Reading time! Recognize letters with cute animals. 
See the cute animals move, hear them making cute voices, and also learn the animal's name
  • Writing time! Help the turtle catch the stars and draw the alphabets. 
Kids will learn how to write alphabets by following the stars guidelines.
  • Play time! Tickle the shell to peek on the cute animals, and complete the alphabet quiz. 
This is a fun way to do memory test for kids. Kids can pop the bubble to pick the right letter to complete the animal's name. 

  • Sing along! Pop the bubbles and sing the alphabet song. 
Kids can pop the bubble to reveal each animal behind the alphabet-song bubble. Tired of hide and seek? Kids can also just watch the alphabet bubbles floating while the song is playing.

Each section of this app comes with a unique alphabet-song music; from cheerful reggae to a relaxing version, the music itself can put kids to sleep!

AbcDay is available for $2.99 in BlackBerry App World. There is also a FREE Lite version in which only one level, reading, is unlocked.

Little ones learn their ABC's the fun way with AbcDay!


1st I would NEVER teach my kids ABCs on a tablet... What has this world come 2?
2nd I would never pay 1.99 for something I can do for free
3rd its Great review thumbs up BUT still my kids will grow up Playing with Legos and Not playing on a $500 computer.
this is my opinion

1st, the children learn in the traditional way as well as on the tablet. Some children are audio learners and some are visual. They need to be taught in different ways that catch their attention.

2nd, have you not seen the price of some of the other instructional dvds that are all the range?

3rd, thank you and my children have a whole play area devoted to Legos, My Little Pony, Barbie, Tinker Toys and so on.

We have to adapt to the times. Children learn in different ways and are products of their surroundings. I want my children to be children and enjoy all there is to offer at that age. If allowing these children to USE (not PLAY) an instructional aide that speeds their learning comprehension as well as teaches them to use the technology we have available, I'll consider my job a job well down. 

This is my opinion...
