    "This is such a fun little app and pretty much the only one I'll let kids I babysit play with. I'm not generally a fan of letting kids use phones, but this actually helps them learn things instead of rotting their brains out so I have to say I'm sold."

    "Let me say the app is solid and it'll run on most devices. Likewise it doesn't require a lot of hard interactions, so it's simple and to the point while still being colorful enough for a child to learn and hold their attention to. Only downside is it costs a few bucks and there are free versions out there that do this too."
