Quality

WordGirl Superhero Training is a great app with lots of entertaining videos, illustrations, and animated clips that children will love. The developers have done a great job taking the PBS kids show and creating an entertaining and educational app that is easy to use. With little to no instructions needed, children can easily complete each task to earn more gear for their super hero avatar while helping WordGirl save the world.

Education

Besides just learning new vocabulary words, players are also working on a variety of skills. In fact, each game works on a different skill such as Logic, Reflexes, Memory, and Navigation. Within each game are concepts that allow children to learn new vocabulary words as well. For instance, in the Navigation game, players must help guide Word Girl through the appropriate tunnel labeled with a certain word that will get her to come out another tunnel with a synonym for that word. Children can also work on their reading skills as they play the Reflexes game where they are giving a category and must select the appropriate words that fall into the given category.

Overall, the developers have done a great job creating an app that is educational on many levels.

Entertainment

Children are not only going to be learning lots of new words and working on other various skills, but they are also going to have fun while they play. The super hero theme along with the many games, videos, customizable super hero avatar, illustrations, and animated clips will easily keep children entertained as they learn. In fact, I doubt many children will realize they are actually learning as much as they are because the games are so entertaining.

Value

Currently priced at just under a dollar, this app is a steal. Parents do not want to miss out on this app especially with all of the wonderful educational features and fun games children can play. This is also the type of app that will be getting a lot of playing time once children get started and for families with more than one child, you just can’t beat the price.

Child Friendliness

The developers have done a nice job making sure not to include any in-app purchases, social media links, or advertisements so parents can rest assured their children can play safely. There is an information button that provides a bit of guidance regarding each game and the concepts behind how the educational features play into the app, however there are no additional links etc.

Another great thing about this app is that it is simple to use. Children can move through it easily without much instruction and can explore each game, customize their avatar, dress them etc. with ease.

Help WordGirl save the day by building your superhero skills through a variety of word, memory, and logic challenges in this fun app.
