"This week, Disney Pixar’s smash hit Finding Nemo was released on Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D DVD for the first time, allowing viewers to experience the story like never before.  To further extend children and families' dives into Nemo's underwater world, Disney Publishing is bringing Nemo to their newest educational app – Numbers with Nemo!

My Thoughts:

We just downloaded this app and are having a blast playing with it.  Now that Savannah is starting to learn her numbers and sequencing, I have been searching for just the right apps that we can play together, that will help reinforce what I am teaching her.  I have tried  a few other numbers apps, some paid and some free, but they didn't really wow me like this new app from Disney Publishing did.  And, with one of Disney's favorite characters, Nemo, this makes for a more entertaining game for children.  As soon as Savannah saw Nemo, she kept calling out his name and was eager to see what the app was all about.

The best feature of the app for Savannah was tracing the numbers.  Every time she would complete a number, she had a big smile on her face and clapped.  What a great way to get children excited learning numbers.  I can't wait to continue to use this app with Savannah, and then with her little sister.  Right now, Savannah is sitting on the couch with the iPad creating a Finding Nemo scene with the stickers feature of this fun new app.

So, if you are looking for a fun app that helps teach your children about numbers and is very interactive, then this new app from Disney Publishing is worth checking out.

Disclosure: I was sent a promo code to download this app and review.  The views above are mine and mine alone.
