Lacey Gray Very disappointed 3 year old here. We really like the game, but also can't make it past the letter C. (Using Samsung GS5) Do you have to pay for access to the rest of the letters or something?
I paid to unlock the App and it is fully unlocked in my profile. However, in my daughter's 'restricted' profile (she's too young to have full use of the tablet) does not reflect this purchase and it's restricted to just A, B and C.. There doesn't seem to be a support option, so how do I fix this please? You'll get extra stars when my daughter can use it properly.. Same with Elmo 123 too..
Letter B example is teaching my son to curse Seems like a nice app for kids to learn their abc's but as others have mentioned this is the lite version. Unfortunately I will not be purchasing the full version because the pronunciation of "beach" clearly sounds like "b*tch" and I refuse to have my son learn foul language from a sesame street app. Who knows what other "errors" may be hiding in the rest of the app. I have video of my son watching and you can clearly hear the curse word.
My son (2) likes this app, but I don't. Here's how it works: you touch a letter then Elmo prompts you to trace the uppercase and lowercase of the letter, then you see three objects that start with the letter, then you are able to play a game (usually tapping the screen to expose the pictures of the objects), color a picture with a cartoon version of the object or watch a video clip that is somehow related to the object. Not bad, but I expected more from Sesame Street. First tracing the letters is required to see the other options under each letter and not all kids who are old enough to enjoy the app can do that yet. Second most of the games you play in each letter are pretty passive and not as connected with the letter as I would like. My son spends most of his time watching the same video over and over, not terrible if my goal is to keep him entertained, but I don't feel like he's learning much. With how much you pay for the full version I expected more.
We love this app, but... Would you mind fixing what Elmo says on the letter "L"? He says the letter is "A" when you click on an "L" word picture (after you've traced it, of course). For example, "A, lion." And then there's the lion video. And he repeats at the end, "A, lion." Same with lady bug. My three year old keeps repeating it, "A is for lion." And I said, "no" and we listened to it over and over and finally I said, "Elmo's saying it wrong, honey."
Cute! I usually do not review things, but this app has been a life saver so many times. My almost one-year-old is going through a very painful illness, and last night he was crying inconsolably for over an hour. I turned on Elmo and we played the little videos for each letter for about a half hour. It helped him calm down and finally fall asleep. Mama keeps her sanity for one more day!
