Head to the fairy tale world of Princess Lila and her friends. While the app’s title suggests the game only contains spelling and counting activities, it actually offers a lot more. Kids can play 10 different learning games that require them to spell, count, sort, make matches, solve mazes, and connect the dots. Each activity extends the fairy tale theme. For example, kids must guide a knight through the maze to reach the princess or make matches with cards that contain royal horses. Kids also get to interact with the town Princess Lila lives in, spinning windmills, tapping on buildings, and moving horses along the paths. Boys and girls alike will enjoy playing games in this fairy tale themed land.
- 10 different learning games

- Progress tracking
- Fairy tale theme
When kids enter the app, they’re exposed to a fairy tale village complete with spinning windmills, roaming animals, and numerous other moving parts. The colorful graphics and animations, along with the fairy tale theme, grab kids’ attention. As they discover and play the different learning games contained within the app, kids will find everything runs smoothly. However, in a few instances, the games are a bit touchy for young fingers. For example, in the sorting game, kids can only drag the fruits into the correct baskets through certain paths, making it difficult for little fingers who are just learning how to drag and drop.
While simple in scope, the games help kids build their basic skills. They’ll learn how to spell some simple royal words, discover the names of farm animals, and help Princess Lila complete a variety of activities. Some of the games even offer a unique twist on traditional activities. For example, in the matching game, kids must match the animal, mermaid, and fairy bottoms with their tops, rather than just matching pictures.
Each time kids open the app to play with Princess Lila and her friends, they can choose from three different player profiles. The app encourages kids to pick the same profile each time to track their progress, monitoring how many jewels and characters they have found and how many phoenixes, dragons, and ducklings they have hatched.
Princess Lila – Children’s Spelling & Counting Games is priced at the same rate as similar learning apps for kids. For the price, kids not only get access to 10 different learning activities and three different levels of play, but they also get to learn a little more about Princess Lila and the role she plays in her fairy tale land.
A kid’s natural tendency may be to tap along the path to play the various games found in Princess Lila’s world. They’ll soon realize, however, that while the buildings and other items on the map are interactive, it is the sun that controls all of the games. Once kids learn to tap on the sun, they’ll have fun rotating through the 10 different learning games. On the main screen, kids and parents can also control the level of difficulty, choosing from Easy, Medium, and Hard. Parental gates prevent kids from accessing additional information from the app’s developers.
