123s for Little Children

123s for Little Children is a simple number sequence game for children of pre-school age and older.

Starting by simply counting up from 1, it helps to build a child’s confidence with numbers laying the foundation for later schoolwork.

No reading ability is required to play the games and the child can choose his or her own path through the games at whatever pace they like.

The 31 games include counting in twos, threes, fives and tens. They also include “fill in the gap” games to strengthen a child’s knowledge.

Number sounds – up to 100 – spoken in english by children are included to allow a child to associate written numbers with number names.

The visual menu system allows the game to be navigated without having to read, so individual games can be found simply by looking and touching.
