Do you have a child learning numbers and counting? Does the child like digging? Today we have a fun digging app teaching kids numbers and counting – 123 Dig. Kids will help the Mole Manny to dig out numbers and learn recognizing numbers and counting to 10.
When kids open the app, they will see Manny come out of the mole house ready to dig. He will be on the track labelled with numbers. Manny’s friends will come out digging holes in the grass area. Kids need count the number of mole friends, ie. number of holes they made. Once kids get the number, they can use the left and right arrow at the top of the screen and guide Manny along the track to find the correct number. When Manny moves to the correct number, kids can tap on the shovel and Manny will start digging on the spot labelled with the number.
When Manny dig the number out, Manny and the Mole Friends will count the number of the holes out aloud. If the counted number match the number Manny digs out, all mole friends will happily move away with some fun transportation, like bike or helicopter. If the number of holes doesn’t match the number Manny digs out, every one will disappear into the hole.
If kids get the numbers right, the digging tool will be upgraded, from shovel to fancy machines. In the setting parents can choose difficulty levels. At the easiest level, kids just need count the number of holes and find the number on the track. At the difficulty levels, kids will see a question mark on the track instead of a number, they have to be able to guess what the number is and be able to find the correct number on the track when some numbers are not written out.
Depends on your child’s language, parents can set the language as English, French or Spanish, a nice feature for families speaking more than one languages.
123 Dig is available on iPhone, iPod and iPad. It is $2.99 on App Store.
