Oh no! Johnny has sprained his ankle and can’t complete all of his errands for the General Store! How will Mr. Maurice get his supplies now? Never fear, Mia the Happy Helper Mouse is here! She can’t do it alone, however! She needs your child to help her complete ten tasks necessary to gather all of the supplies for the store. Your child will love helping this adorable little mouse play each activity and earn the things you need to gather.
This learning app is filled with fun educational activities that your child can do to have fun and practice some essential skills needed in school such as shape, color and letter recognition, phonics, counting and numbers and fine motor skills. Your child will be asked to count and gather nuts and berries. They must match letter sounds with the picture whose name begins with that sound. If music is something they love, they can learn easy melodies by tapping on the piano keys at the right time and in the right beat to make music. The activities also come with two levels: Kind of Easy and Not so Easy so that you can customize your child’s learning experience based on their level. Once your child has successfully completed an activity, they can also go back and replay their favorite games and get even more practice!
I really enjoyed playing this app and my 4 year old has had a blast playing it as well! One thing that I really appreciated about his app is the object of each activity and the instructions to complete it were very clearly explained in terms that children could understand. This allowed by son to play the activities with very little help from me and experience the satisfaction that comes from learning to do things independently and achieving something on his own. I felt that each of the games had real educational value but were very engaging and entertaining so that kids would keep coming back to them over and over again without getting bored or frustrated. This app is a free initial download with the full version available to purchase in app for $2.99. I would definitely recommend purchasing the full version so that your child has more options to play. This is a great app for preschool – first grade aged kids and they will definitely gain hours of fun and education with Mia the Happy Helper!
