Review: Eggy Alphabet

Excellent fully comprehensive alphabet learning app for young children and toddlers.

Eggy Alphabet - Blake eLearning

View on the App Store: Eggy Alphabet - Blake eLearning

Features of Eggy Alphabet:

  • Learn Upper and Lower case letter formations in a number of different ways.
  • Learn your alphabet while having lots of fun and using repetition.
  • Learn how words are formed using first and last letters.
  • Wide range of goals to achieve which motivate and challenge your child.
  • Progress is recorded by individual child as each child has their own account.
This brilliant app has 4 activities for each alphabetical letter both Upper and lower case, plus one phonetic game.  The letters can be scrolled through alphabetically and selected randomly by letter. 

Within these activities there are Easy, Medium and Hard settings with various hints so you can tailor learning specifically to your child's level.  

Within each level you need to complete the task 6 times to gain 1 golden egg.  There is a possibility to achieve 6 golden eggs for completing the task up to 6 times...this adds up to a LOT of practise!

The activities are:
Dot to Dot: This starts with numbers placed on the dots and your child traces the letter in the correct numerical order as with traditional dot to dot puzzles.  The difficulty increases when after the 2nd time the numbers disappear therefore testing your child's ability to retain the correct way of writing the letter.

Copy the Letter:
A colourful bright and creative drawing appears in the shape of the letter.  Your child needs to copy it.  Sometimes it is footprints, clouds,  stars , sand, gems, stars and all sorts of wonderful imagery to engage your child. Getting it right wins a golden egg and an 'excellent'.

Draw the Letter:
You are asked 'draw the letter...'. Your child draws their attempt at the letter on the full screen.  The screen then divides in two and your child is shown how it should be written on the top screen.  This is a self marking exercise where your child selects the tick or the X depending on whether they think they completed it in the right way or not.

Letter or Not?
A picture is shown and your child is asked "look at the picture, does the word begin with the letter...?" You click Yes or No.  6 correct answers are given a golden egg. 

The Letter Game:
This is an additional activity where  your child needs to choose the letter the picture starts with from a choice of 2.

The developers really have thought of everything here.  Great for toddlers, special needs and for any child practising to write.

10 out of 10!

Age Group:


All in all this is a wonderfully educational app. You can use a stylus to make the activity more like using a pen.

There are detailed HELP instructions within the app and you can. Turn off the music and the sound if you do not want to hear the narration.

As well as golden egg rewards, you can unlock the 'critters' to add some additional challenges. They each have a particular objective.

See how you child is progressing easily using the progress chart. More than one child can use this app by entering in a unique account.
