What's New

* Phonics! You can now use phonics (speech sounds) rather than letter names when playing the game.
* More words! Over 20 new words, with an emphasis on words that are great for learning phonics.
* New option: choose between serif and sans serif font.
* New option: disable auto-advance, so your child can see the picture and completed word before advancing to the next word.

App Description

Push the letters into place and the pictures spring into action!

This latest installment of the best-selling "First Words" educational game from Learning Touch will keep the toddlers in your life laughing while they learn about letters and words.

FirstWords: At Home includes pictures of over 50 familiar items from around the house, beautifully depicted with original artwork and entertaining sound effects.

FirstWords: At Home is toddler-tested and approved, with a user-interface designed specifically for the littlest of fingers. Even the youngest kids can play. Touch a letter, and its name is spoken. Push the letter to the right location, and it snaps into place. Complete a word, and hear the word spelled out while an entertaining animation is played.

A variety of options let you tune the game to match your child's abilities.

Kids can play FirstWords: At Home by themselves, but they also enjoy bringing their adults along, talking about the pictures, saying the names of the letters, and watching the pictures spin around and sound off.

If your child is old enough to ask for your phone, they're old enough to play FirstWords: At Home!
