Soundbingo is three-games-in-one: One player bingo, Two player bingo (head-to-head or side-by-side) and Tic Tac Toe. To make things more interesting, you can also pick between three tile display modes: images, words, and single letter.
Soundbingo is a great way to entertain the entire family, but also has educational value for young children. It helps to develop not just auditory discrimination skills and focus, but also analytical skills, hand-eye coordination, vocabulary, and the important pre- reading skill of matching sounds to visual representations. After your kids master the basic games, you can introduce word or letter matching, turn taking, and finally strategy with Tic Tac Toe.
The free app contains two sample games. If you buy the Game Kit for just 99 cents (hint hint), you’ll be able to download many more pre-built games, as well as ones that you and your friends have created, from radioweave.com.
Prebuilt games (as of May 31) include:
- in my house (toddler)
- at the zoo (toddler)
- on the farm (toddler)
- alphabet recognition (preschool)
- kid songs (preschool)
- everyday sounds (preschool)
- name that tune (adult)
Remember that you can also design games specifically for your child’s interests or learning needs, or to stump other grownups – all trains, farm animals, bird calls, dinosaurs, spelling or vocabulary homework, even photos and voices of friends and family. Game content is limited only by your imagination.
