For example, we played the animal category. Each card had an image of an animal and the name of the animal was listed below the image. A woman's voice announced the animal. If you selected the animal, you could hear the sound it makes. You could select the name of the animal to hear the name announced again.
We only played for about 15 minutes each time because my son's attention span is limited. I imagine this games not meant to last long.
I've tried to play the game with my son before but he was too young. Recently he has been using his index finger to point and I figured now was a good time to start introducing the iPad games for him. It was the perfect time. He listed to the name of the animal and selected the animal to hear the sound it makes. He got excited and played some of the animal sounds multiple times. He learned to move to the next card to hear the next animal. I was really glad that he was getting the hang of the game.
At first I didn't see this as a game, but then I realized that for my son, it was a game. He didn't know what sounds the animals make or what they are called yet, but it was fun to select the animal and hear the sound. He also liked scanning through the animals to see all the different animals.
The game does teach a lot for babies in a fun way. They learn how to use an iPad, to point, to select an object, to move to the next card, and of course they learn the content of the Flashcard.
