Abby's Basic Skills application is a new application from a series developed by a team of educational experts from 22learn designed to best prepare your children for success in the kindergarten curriculum. Its simple child-friendly interface offers children an engaging way to master the essential skills in the total of 12 (!) DIFFERENT EXCITING EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES (ten educational activities + two creative activities). We sincerely hope your children will enjoy them all!
"I really appreciate the incredible amount of activities. The option to select only those activities you want your child to practise is great! What a helpful toy both for parents and their toddlers!" Anita, a mother of three.
"One, two, three cars! Bye-bye train!" Nathan, a three-year-old beta-tester.
The ENTHUSIASTIC MONKEY CHARACTER is going to guide children through the whole game. As a reward after each round, children receive the opportunity to become creative artists and CHANGE THE DESIGN OF THE TRAIN, or obtain STICKERS TO SHOW OFF ON THEIR BOARD!
Tap on the word that starts with the letter that was pronounced! Great for teaching children to realize the connection of letters to words, understand the position of the first letter, and practise matching the names of letters to their symbolic notation!
2. COUNTING (full version only)
Count the toys! Hearing the counting pronounced helps children to better remember the order of the numerals as well as get used to the counting procedure. Way to learn how to count!
3. SIZES (full version only)
Train the skills of understanding the comparative nature of concepts of big, small and the same!
4. PUZZLES (full version only)
Fix the broken toy! Puzzles mode enables your children to train fine motor skills and improve their logical thinking skills when they need to realize the correct position of each puzzle and understand how they together make a whole.
Drag the object to its silhouette!
6. MATCHING (full version only)
Match the toys! Matching game serves to train children's memory and understanding of the concept of the same. Children need to match in total four pairs of toys.
7. COLORS (full version only)
The task is to tap on the toy that is painted in a certain color. The task is made slightly easier by the fact that the name of the color is always written on the top of the screen, making the activity great for children only beginning with colors learning.
8. SHAPES (full version only)
Shapes is an activity designed to teach children recognition of names of common shapes (such as a square, rectangle, or triangle). The task is to tap on the shape whose name was pronounced.
9. PATTERNS (full version only)
This activity gives children practice in the area of common patterns recognition. Task is to drag the object that completes the toy pattern into its correct place.
10. SAME AND DIFFERENT (full version only)

We hope that your children will enjoy the application the same way our little beta-testers did. Thank you for your purchase!
