Mutant ABCs HD

May 22, 2011

By: Carisa Kluver

The Digital Media Diet

Mutant ABC's is a cute Alphabet book staring crazy cartoon letters. The illustrations are expressive and engaging, with monster-shaped ABCs with feet, hands, crazy mouths and eyes that dart to and fro. My little boy enjoyed this app so much he was a ball of giggles.

The audio narration is distorted in a fun way, although this could be a difficulty for very young children learning basic articulation. Each letter also features a cute mystery envelope. Tap on the envelope to see a word that starts with that letter and accompanying image. It features a tiny bit of animation (limited to eyeballs moving) and simple settings, like page-turn arrows (shaped like puddles), a home button and narration that is triggered by tapping on a dialogue bubble.

Overall, this is a nice little digital ABC book that is sure to engage young listeners. We did have to re-start the app a couple times when it froze up, but this could easily be fixed in a future update. For an alphabet app, this one is sure to please little ones, though. There isn't much of a story, beyond the introduction about the 'alien' letters landing on earth, but Ferguson's illustrations are more than enough to make this worth a download.

All reviews are of the app, not the platform/device. Based originally on iPad versions. Minor technical details may vary.
