Overall the developers have done an excellent job making this app both high quality and very easy to use.


Learning how to spell and write your name is one of the first things children learn and Name Play takes that concept to the next level with a variety of educational activities. Not only are children able to practice tracing and writing their name, but they also get the opportunity to practice recognizing their name, spelling it out using a group of letters, typing it etc. These kinds of activities are a great way to introduce children to reading and can be quite exciting as they begin to learn to read their own name. Very well done.


Children are going to love the variety of activities and games that are included in this app. In addition to the name play activities, children can use stickers to decorate their very own locker as well as move the items in their locker around as they choose. In addition to the stickers, there are lots of fun games and activities including a name matching game, a laundry activity, lunch time fun, and so much more. Another great feature of this app is that as children play more activities, they unlock more colors and options within the app to decorate their locker. Overall, Name Play is a great app that players are going to love exploring.


Priced at just under two dollars this app is an absolute steal! There are loads of activities, interactive images, and fun options for children to explore. Not to mention all of the great learning activities that encourage children to practice spelling, writing, and reading their name. Parents can certainly appreciate the app for the amazing value and fun it offers at a price that won’t break the bank.
