More than just a game, First Words Animals is a powerful educational tool for the toddlers and kids in your life. It provides hours of fun, laughter and learning.

If your child is old enough to ask for your phone, they're old enough for First Words Animals!

First Words Animals will help your child:

* Develop fine motor skills
* Learn to recognize and match letters
* Learn the names of letters
* Learn the sounds English letters make (phonics)
* Learn how to spell words

Of course, they won't just be learning, they'll also be laughing and having fun with 45 of their favorite animal friends, beautifully illustrated and matched with entertaining animal sounds.

First Words Animals is toddler-tested and approved, with a user-interface designed specifically for the littlest of fingers. More than just a game, it is a sophisticated learning tool that engages your child, encourages exploration, and helps them begin building a deep understanding of the relationships between letters and words.

A variety of options let you adjust the difficulty level to match the abilities of your younger or older kids. In addition to English, your child can now learn the names of their favorite animals in French, German, Japanese and Spanish.

Kids can play First Words by themselves, but they also enjoy bringing their grownups along, talking about the animals, saying the names of the letters, and watching the animals spin around and sound off.

If your child is old enough to ask for your phone, they're old enough for First Words Animals!
