“A larvae-ly bug-collecting app that subtly teaches your kids basic math skills – grub it now to check out the buzz!”£1.99
Plenty of apps for kids try to make learning fun, but few do it as successfully as Bugs and Numbers. It combines children’s instinctive fascination with creepy crawlies with simple games that teach them to use and recognise numbers, letters and shapes, and the best part is that it’s so fun, they don’t realise they’re all the while learning said important lessons. The more games your children play, the more bugs they earn for their collection – which certainly keeps them coming back for more. The games are simple and range in difficulty. It’s worth mentioning that the graphics are great, too – the 3D animations of the bugs are particularly enjoyable, and we found children loved seeing them crawling about in the virtual cardboard box.
