Little Digits: It's OK For Kids To Touch Everything In This Game
Counting is one of the most important skills a child can learn. Little Digits is an adorable educational app that helps kids do that in a fun, intuitive way.
What does it do?
The touchscreen display detects how many fingers a tyke is holding up to the screen, and presents them with the appropriate corresponding numeral, fashioned as a cute moster, animation or animal. And in the same manner, several games introduce basic lessons in addition and subtraction.
