App description

An App for young children, using a train theme and a series of mini games to focus on letters and the sounds they make.

Reviewers comments

This App uses a train theme to examine letters and sounds. For example you open each carriage of the train and add cargo items of the corresponding letter, or you draw tracks between the letters in sequence to move the train along the track (and hear the sounds). In user testing, one child who enjoyed playing with trains found this engaging – however another was quickly bored with the train theme.

Within the App there are five mini games, each exploring letters and sounds, some spoken sounds and letter names have a very strong American accent which may be problematic for Australian families.

About games and gambling

Most games contain elements of risk, chance and knowledge, that is why they are fun to play. There is growing concern about the impacts of simulated gambling games on the health and wellbeing of children. That's why we are identifying games that contain gambling elements on our site.

The State Government of South Australia's web site http://nogame.com.au/ contains information about these concerns.
