Feed Me! – PencilBot Preschool Learning Center is a series by our team of teachers, game designers, and parents who have developed educational games for over 10 years. This series is already popular on iPhone/iPad – see reviews below.

The 12 IAPs (US English, UK English, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Mexican Spanish, French, German, Italian, Arabic, Russian or Hindi) expose your child to new languages and tap into their natural ability to learn multiple languages.

This simple, easy-to-use game can be enjoyed by children and their parents as they play along.

My 3 year old son adores this app.
Out of all my apps, he comes to this one time and again, and i find it to be one of the best kids apps… He started playing this app when he was 2 1/2 … I can see him still playing this app at 5. It has lots of room for a child to grow into. -- Tammattam

Great for pre-schoolars (v2.0)
…Reinforces the alphabet and helps show children relationships of objects and concepts. -- bruinb77

Version 1.2.1
Review by CindyElizabeth

20 month old - I have the free version and I will be buying (and reviewing the US English version after my daughter plays with this. First let me explain what I'm looking for and that I will be reviewing it BASED on that. I have a 20 month old child who has only a bit of motor conrol for the mouse yet. She has minimal letter recognition now, so obviously I would like to enhance that. Based on those two things, the app is great. It's extremely easy and will not be appropriate for a more advanced child. For my kid, it's EXCELLENT!

Review by Paradise2865

Buyer Beware - I purchased the English Version several months ago and the program had been working fine until today. My daughter sat down at my Mac to play this game this morning and now it wants me to purchase the game for a second time. The only version available is the free version even though I paid for the English version several months ago and it had been working OK. I will not continue to rebuy the same educational apps for my daughter so I guess I'll be looking for a new program for her.

Do no purchase - I purchased the English version and now it wants me to purchase it again. My son isn’t able to play anything except the sample now. Ridiculous. It’s pretty much like stealing peoples money.
