Jamaroos Musical ABCs brings to life a colorful menagerie of 26 animals – one for each letter of the alphabet – through enchanting animated musical performances. A medley of phonetic sounds, letters, words, stackable images, and music, plus loads of interactive touch points and zany sound effects, spring forth from the screen to jumpstart preschoolers’ reading and vocabulary skills and stimulate their imagination.

The new app is filled with hidden surprises and hundreds of opportunities for young users to tap, drag, swipe, and learn! Users simply drag each letter of the alphabet to the center of the stage to bring a different animal character – from Al the Alligator to Zap the Zebra – into the “spotlight” and start the show! Icons on the base of the stage reveal a variety of movable images that begin with the same letter as the character’s name. Kids can “unleash” additional alphabet characters, each complete with their own unique musical performance and corresponding words and sound effects, with the touch of a finger!

    i am in love with this my 3 yr old is autistic but he loves games especially interactive ones and we try to get him learning ones to keep him one step ahead and this seems like it would suit us all

  5. ellen beck says:

    I like educational apps. I feel unlike just games that there is some substance to them. I also like that most educational apps are reasonably priced or free.

  6. Maria Iemma says:

    This would be a great app to download for my granddaughter. She is just turning three and loves to play on my iPad.

    Commonly I wouldn’t discover article on sites, having said that i wish to point out that this kind of write-up extremely pushed me personally to look at and also practice it! Your way of writing has become amazed my family. Many thanks, quite fantastic article.

  8. This is adorable! My kids are a little beyond this now, but if they were a little younger, I’d definitely get this app for them. Apps make the world go ’round, I swear. :)

  9. Eileen Richter says:

    I will forward this post to my daughter. Her 2 year old would love this. And I also got a good idea for a gift for Christmas. She got an iPad (lucky girl) for her bday in October…I never thought about the apps she can now buy! I like that the kids get “rewards” for getting answers right on this one. Rewards do so work for this age.

  10. It looks like a cute program for teaching kids their abcs and more!

  11. i think this App is a really good one. I am going to look into getting it for my Littles.

    I just love all these new education apps for kids. It is so hard to say “no” to screen time, but if you can make it educational, that takes some of the negative out of it.

  13. THis would be great for my 2yo granddaughter who loves to play on her mom’s iPad.

  14. It looks like a cute program for kids

  15. Jenn Oldaker says:

    Going to tell my sister about this! Looks like something she would love for her son and to pass on to her families at work. She is the director of an early head start program :) Thanks for sharing!

  16. I find it amazing that we just kind of expect a 2-6 year old to use an app. But, I have seen my 3 yr old grandson handle an i pad like a pro. just whipping through it. It is amazing! Thanks. Vicki.
