Zooper ABC Animals

Zooper ABC Animals by Zooper Dooper Edutainment Inc is a fun app for iOS that is designed for toddler through early preschool to teach them the alphabet as well as phonics and the sound of each letter.  This interactive app features 26 letters, with each featuring their own animated animal and rhyme.  After seeing the animal and the rhyme, you can trace upper and lower case versions of the letter and hear the different sounds the letter can make in a variety of placements within a word.  The app can be used with narration, or it can be used in silent mode if you are with your child and working with them 1:1.

The app features:

  • Interactive rhyme that introduces your child to the letter sound
  • Tracing lesson both uppercase and lowercase letters
  • Guessing game to find objects that begin with the same letter as the animal such as ambulance or dolphin

iPhone Screenshot 2My toddler was a bit young for the app, but we looked at each of the letters (with the sound off) and I told him the name of the animal as well as the letter sound.  He enjoyed tapping on the screen and finding the animations.  For my older son, he still has trouble at times with sounding out words and phonics so I let him explore the app.  He enjoyed the “Zooper Dooper Bloopers” and the mistakes as well as listening to the different letters with the word.  I really liked that the app practiced a number of skills including object identification (the animal), tracing (both upper and lower case) as well as phonics.  I think that the phonics component makes the app unique and will help it appeal not only to parents of toddlers but those with other children who may be struggling with phonics.  The illustrations are fun and interactive and the narration is clear which is especially helpful when you have a child struggling with phonics or speech sounds.  My older son also enjoyed picking out the items that started with the specific letter as well.

In terms of enhancements, it would be nice if the tracing activity showed if the letter was traced correctly or not.  Currently, you can trace the letter either on or off target and there is no feedback about if it was done correctly.  There is also no way to erase or undo if you go off course, other than exiting the page and going back.

Overall, this is a fun alphabet app which is a little bit different than the norm since it includes object identification, tracing and phonics activities.  This app is different from the norm of alphabet apps and takes learning to a fun and zany new level!  There is no external advertising or in-app purchase.  Comprehensive alphabet app that goes beyond the traditional see the letter and say it to include tracing and phonics.  Top pick!
