Babblmania Spanish is a collection of educational “mini games” that will teach children Spanish. This is version 1.0 and it features five games that center around fruits and vegetables. Each game reinforces the spanish word for the fruits and veggies. Some games also work with simple sentences. Different levels will slightly increase the difficulty as your child progresses through the game. The nice thing is they’re only focusing on a few words or phrases at a time so it’s never overwhelming.
The star of Babblmania Spanish is a fellow named Furley. He acts as the guide, cheerleader, teacher – basically he keeps the game moving and the players entertained. The graphics and animation are well done and the game runs smoothly. I got a kick out of Furley’s dance moves. He’s got some great ones! As your child progresses through the different games they’ll earn badges and unlock further content. Additionally, the words your children learn are stored in a “word vault” which works as a type of dictionary where they can see and hear the words for extra practice.
I mentioned before that this is Babblmania Spanish version 1.0. New games are planned for this app and they will be available in a future update. If you are looking for a flashcard app then this is definitely not want you want. But if you’re looking for an engaging educational Spanish game for elementary schoolers, know that Babblmania is a fun one.
