It has a lot of little interactive things that my daughter loves. It helps with writing, and the songs are great!
Elmo’s ABC’s 5/5
By Fredy F
A B C D E F
Not worth the download 2/5
You get letters A-C, all the other letters you have to pay for
Update for iPhone X please! 3/5
You can’t close the app without a home button!
The voice of Elmo is distracting and hard to hear. Some kids will only want to play the games.
App size?!?!?! 2/5
By Scooter Donovan
I'm going to send you 400+ mb video of my 2 year old screaming while waiting for this to download! Is this really necessary for the "lite" version
Great, but so limited! 4/5
This gave us the perfect opportunity to evaluate the benefits vs annoyances some apps never allow for. We definitely just invested the $5 in the full app. Three letters can become old after awhile. My almost 18-month-old loves the videos. He still needs help drawing and locating the letters, but it's so fun watching his face as he completes a letter!
Not sure about the learning portion 2/5
Lots of videos from Sesame Street for letters ABC,but is it really learning? If you wanted to watch Sesame Street videos just use the PBS app.
Worst game ever 1/5
All I can say is BOO
My 2yo really likes this game the problem is you only get the first three letters, if you want the full alphabet you have to buy the full version for $4.99.
Fraudulent charges!! 1/5
By Zach were rev
This app is trying to charge me 10 dollars after I download. Currently speaking with iTunes! Do not download!
Lots of learning. I got it before a plane ride and my 2 year old loves it. I was impressed with how much there is to it. I can only imagine what one with the full app.
My kid loves Elmo but my kid loves that letter E and we want to you unlock all the letters and to unlock them maybe you should give points for the game so every day unlocks a new letter please do this please
My kids love Elmo!
They only give the first 3 letters of the alphabet. 1/5
By Mr. and Mrs. Dubya
Your child can only access the first three letters of the alphabet to learn, all others are blacked out.
Does not open 1/5
Glad I did not spend $5 on the full version first. App will not even open.
Only has 3 letters! 1/5
I'm very disappointed in this "lite" version -- it's really only a trial version with only 3 letters. My 2-year-old was very confused. If you want letters D to Z, you have to buy the full version for $5.
Great App 5/5
My Daughter loves elmo! Thanks sesame street!
It is great for toddlers
Updates ruined this once great app 2/5
By Jesus is fake
Please fix all of these bugs. The original version was perfect, now my kid can't use this app without getting frustrated ..
Not a good one
By Paul paschall
This game is really boring. My 3 year old loves elmo but not this
By Jessica 🎀
Won't go past the home game screen. My 2 year old is very sad it's not working
Wrong letter sounds!!! 1/5
By Uneducated astronaut
The astronaut says the sound for a short o instead of a. This teaches kids the incorrect sounds. Elmo should know better. ;) Making teachers' jobs that much more difficult....
Only ABC! 3/5
There is only so much you can get out of three letters, so that's disappointing. But my 3 yr old loves it and especially the "real" videos!
Correct sounds??? 2/5
Why does the astronaut make the short o sound for the letter a? Very confusing for a small child!
By ...loading ...
I liked the app, but it took up way too much space. Since my child rarely played with it, I deleted it so I could download more apps.
Freezes up 2/5
Half the time the app will not open and when it does it freezes up. Very disappointing for a 3 year old who loves Elmo!
And this app uses this much memory becaaaauuussee?????
Only a little free 3/5
Good game but doesn't tell you that you only get A B C for free.
By Whatsupelle it is me
My nephew loves it!:) but they only give you a and b.:( and you have to buy the rest of the letters.$$$
So far so good 5/5
My daughter loves it so far and it's very easy to use and has the right interaction.
By Momof 4
It worked when I first downloaded it. But now it only lets you click on three letters. A, B, and C. Would love it if it could be fixed.
BAD! I dislike this app very much: terrible quality and way too many MB's. I would expect better from Sesame Street, especially as the full version costs $5. Elmo is not enough to make a good app :-(
It took so loooooooooooong to download this app I just said never mind and stopped the downloading hopefully apple someday start testing the apps before posting them!
Friendly Elmo leads your child to discovering the alphabet in many different ways. He says the letter, your child traces the letter, and there are 3 different activities associated with each letter. As a mother trying to teach a 2 1/2 yr old boy the alphabet, this app is awesome!
Can't download 1/5
My daughter has played this on my parent's iPad. I have tried to install it 3 times on my new iPad and it never works.
Nice app for toddlers. My only concern is about ernie and bert's video where ernie put the banana in his ear. Now, every time my 2 yr old son sees a banana, he would put it in his ear. Not a good example for kids to follow :( I'm now deleting this app.
Please Fix! 2/5
My 3 year old loves this app. It is very easy for her to use. The app is very age appropriate and offers great activities. The BIG concern I have about this app is that Elmo is teaching my daughter the WRONG sound the letter "a" makes!
By Dr. Reading
My 2 year old loves this and can mostly use it by himself! The hardest part is that he has to trace the lower and uppercase letter if he wants to unlock videos related to the letter! But he recognizes most of his letters and when people asked where he learned them he says Elmo!
Excellent Elmo content, but... 3/5
Fun educational material.
The lazy developers get an F for making us download the whole app to see 3/26ths of it.
Really good game for toddler 5/5
Interactive movie that's great for toddlers
Gonna get the full version 5/5
The reviewer that commented he could only get abc letters only is because it's the free version u pay and you'll get all the letters...DUH!
I used to only have abc. I got an iTunes card. So I got the full- version. I got to say, my 2 year old loves it!
Free version only includes A,B, and C but great to see what it can do 5/5
Right now I just downloaded the free version because our daughter is 18 months old and I wanted me and my wife to see if it would work for her now. It looks fantastic. Elmo is surrounded by letters. He asks you to draw the Lower and upper case. When you do videos and more are unlocked. Like a bear video for B. I would think great for whenever your child starts to learn ABCs. Great job Sesame Street. Will buy the full version for sure when our daughter is ready. Hopefully retina update by then.
Only A, B, and C letters available 2/5
By Engr c
Cannot figure out how to "unlock" all the letters past a,b,c. Elmo says to touch any letter from a to z, but only a,b,c are available. Very frustrating for my 3 year old, and for me.
My daughter loved it so I had t buy the full version, which is $4.99. Most expensive app we have purchased.
Amazing app 5/5
I babysit a 3 year old who (because I read on my iPad) thinks its cool to look at my iPad and poke at it. I started with basic coloring programs or talking programs but she is too little/impatient to deal with most of them. So I started on a hunt to find a toddler friendly app (a free one was preferable). This was perfect. It only plays A B and C, but it's the free version. The full version (which I plan on purchasing as soon as my paycheck comes through) has all the letters. There is so much to do in this game. When I downloaded it I thought it was just going to be a few flash cars with a picture of Elmo on them or something simple. However, I was shocked at how much content there is in this one app! So many videos, pictures, coloring pages, activities and fun (I played it for almost an hour by myself it was actually so cool!). The girl I babysit LOVES it, even this free version. There is so much content that even her attention span was used up with only the 3 letters, and we have repeated them with no sign of her being tired of them. Plus the variation of material gives her a lot to take in while being the usual educational style for sesame street. This version is great to see if your toddler likes the game or if their skill level is appropriate, but also has enough content to see if you like the learning style enough to buy the full version. I love it and plan on getting the full version. This free app is a blessing and I was so glad I found it in my search.
You have to buy the full version in order to have all the letters available (as most of the games for iPad). Good overall.
