Kids Connect the Dots

More app fun for kids this week, with Kids Connect the Dots. We have the lite (free) version, which Pebble loves playing. While it is recommended for four to seven year olds, 2.5 year old Pebble has no trouble thanks to the optional hints.

For example, if the child doesn’t click on the correct number within a few seconds, the next correct number is highlighted, giving them a hint. The hint setting is optional: you can have it set to show hints ‘always’, ‘after three seconds’ or ‘never’.

The app also counts each number out loud, which is great for reinforcing number and number pattern. Pebble can count count out loud to thirteen, and is starting to know a few other ‘teen numbers too.

If you have an older child who would enjoy a challenge you can change settings so that there is no voice over for numbers. You can also change from a numerical dot to dot to alphabetical (thumbs up for both upper and lower case!).

The full version ($AUD2.88) includes a child lock and all 100 puzzles, including the 25 available for free. This review is based on the Android app, however it is also available from the Apple App Store.

I’d love to know what technology your kids are having fun with right now. Do tell!


  1. “Popette” would love to play with this app. She is just learning how to do dot-to-dots using the alphabet in a book, using this program to start her on her numbers dot-to-dot would be great. Will have to take a look at it.

    The only software “Popette” has played with so far is School Zone’s Alphabet Express, which she received as a Christmas present.

  2. This looks great, thank you, I have been looking for free/cheap counting and ABC apps for Eli (27 months) lately but haven’t found anything very inspiring. Most of the ones she enjoys are about matching/puzzles. Am about to download this and she can have a try in the morning!

  3. Great for the littlies. We’re getting into lots of sight words here and there are great apps for these, I have iPods for the kids and so put them on there. Little Man prefers the games but Little Miss often does the sight word games. Love an app!!
