Lola’s ABC Party 2 Kindergarten Practice is a universal app for iOS designed by BeiZ. BeiZ is a game studio who has offices in China and Finland and has designed a number of games for iOS and Android. This app is aimed at older preschoolers and early elementary aged children and focuses on fine motor, spoken and written language. The app starts with four activities including: flying a kite, making a picnic, making dessert and a fruit basket. Upon successful completion of ten questions in each section, the child is rewarded with an item such as a kite, sandwich, fruit basket and creating ice cream cones! The app allows you to practice skills in US English, British English, Suomi and pycckmn. The app states that after completion, your child will have learned up to 160 new words via spelling, and spelling. As you complete all of the activities, children can see their creations and get excited about the picnic.
Lola’s ABC Party includes practice necessary to prepare children for kindergarten including: word identification using both a visual and spoken word, spelling out words using phonetic spelling, visual identification of words with a common theme “find all the x” items. After successfully answering five questions in a row, children are able to pick from a reward which builds out a scene for them from objects that they choose. After ten correct answers you get to build a sandwich in one of the mini games. One of my son’s favorite games was writing out letters using the trace function which required that you stay on the dots to successfully complete the tracing. I also liked that when you were spelling a word, it required you to sequentially place them in order rather than just putting them in as you “found them.”
In terms of enhancements, I would like to see language choice included in the parental lock section so that children can’t accidentally change the language. I would also like to see the ability to have hints when children get “stuck” rather than keep taking away choices from the field or just saying “oops”. My son was frustrated with the “drag the missing letters” game as he wanted to see the image so he could connect the word with the spelling, it would be nice to have a “peek option” to reduce frustration. It would also be nice to have a parental report section showing parents areas that children may need to work on.
The app includes no in-app purchases and there is a parental gate which hides access to social media and external links to iTunes and the internet.
My son loved creating his own picnic after successfully completing each of the four activities and flying a kite – so much so that he wanted us to make one in real life!

Alison, the American iMum is from Massachusetts. She lives there with her two sons and husband. In their spare time, they enjoy playing outside, enjoying nature and of course testing apps and fantastic products on their devices. My older son loves technology and loves testing out the “latest and newest” apps and tech. I love sharing information about apps and products with others to help them make decisions without feeling overwhelmed with all of the choices.
