ABC Gurus | Fun & Educational Alphabet App for Preschoolers
✔ iPad + iPhone | Kids app for ages 2-5 years
ABC Gurus is a really interesting new alphabet app for preschool kids, which is just as much fun, as it is educational, because kids are allowed to design their very own letter-figures, which then come to life. What else there is to expect of the ABC Gurus app, can be read in our review below.
Funny Alphabet Characters
ABC Gurus presents the alphabet on a different planet, which is inhabited by the alphabet characters.
Once the app has been started, kids can select a letter, with which they want to play and learn with, or they let the app pick a letter by chance. After that, it’s up to the kids to color and personalize their letters, by also giving them eyes, noses and mouths with the given stickers. The letters will therefore get some really funny animated faces, as the stickers are all animated, which means the eyes and mouths can open and shut etc.
After the kids have created their funny monster-letters with colors and stickers, the letter is also illustrated with an animated word, that matches the initial letter. So for example, when the letter “A” is shown, an “Aligator” appears, with the letter “R” a “Robot” is shown and with the letter “O” a giant “Octopus” appears, whose tentacles are trying to grab the screen. Sounds entertaining – and most certainly is!
All animated words are interactive, which means they react via touch from the kids with further effects and reactions, which makes the ABC Gurus app clearly stand out from other alphabet apps.
Phonetic Letter Sounds
Of course kids are also supposed to learn the words including the correct pronunciation of the letters, whilst having lots of fun, which is why the app developers gave the app a pretty complex audio narration. A very friendly female narrator’s voice names each letter and each word. Also, when the letters are being colored in, the phonetic letter sounds are precisely called out in a memorable way, over and over again, with a different pitch and modulation. If you want to know how entertaining this sounds, you can check out our YouTube video preview!
In our YouTube video preview, we create four different letters – thereunder also two lower case letters, as the app also ideally offers a lower case letter mode.
ABC Gurus – Kids App Rating
ABC Gurus is a very entertaining and funny alphabet app, which from our point of view, is doing a great job. Even if you already own a lot of alphabet and ABC apps on your iPad or iPhone like we do, it is still worth to download the app, as it is simply fun. Something, that can’t be said about many other alphabet apps. The combination of coloring, playing and learning is perfect and motivates children to occupy themselves for a long time with the app.
