Description from the product page:

"Counting Ants is a great app for early learning - perhaps the best way to help your toddler practice counting to ten on the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. It's also a great way to introduce your kids to a foreign language. This app features adorable ants that zip around in their cars, while teaching kids the basics of counting in 10 languages. The app automatically rotates through five minigames to keep your toddler engaged while they learn to count.

Minigames include:
* Count the ducks
* Count the fish
* Count the fruit
* Count the train cars
* Find the number

The minigames and toddler-friendly interface make learning incredibly easy and fun. The scenes are fully interactive and simple for young children to control even if they don't yet know how to read."

What's good?

* It is engaging and interactive and I love the cute illustrations!

* I love the minigames as I think it definitely keeps the attention and interests since there are many different scenes to look at and played with.

* Ben enjoys this game as it has cars and trains in it (boyish genre, yes!) and this app will definitely be used again and again!

Room for Improvement?

* I would prefer if the number 7 is redesigned as it currently looks kind of like the number 1. My boy gets confused at times when he tries to look for these 2 numbers.
