What It Is
The Farm 123 app takes the traditional board book and brings it to life with an interactive story and seven number games. Farm 123 focuses specifically on playing with numbers from 1 to 10. Get started by choosing to watch the story in autoplay mode or choose "read" to do the counting yourself. Click on "games" if you want to skip over the story and just play the counting games.
In the autoplay story portion of the app, Farmer Jo introduces an animal and counts how many are on the page. Kids see the number appear over the top of each animal and represented as green ovals on the bottom of the screen.
If you choose the "read" button instead of autoplay, you'll see that kids get to take ownership of controlling the counting with a tap of the finger. Either way, you'll want to keep watching once the counting is finished as the animals come alive in a short animation.
Games include kids tapping to catch animals while Farmer Jo counts along, rubbing their finger on the screen to help clean off dirty farm friends, or playing spot and find with animals hiding around the screen. Kids earn stars as they play, and you will notice the games get more difficult the more stars you earn.
Is It Fun?
Farm 123 is more than just a counting story. Kids will love the seven mini counting games starring Farmer Jo and all the animals.
