Eli Explorer By Colto was developed with toddlers and preschoolers in mind. It focuses on 100 early vocabulary words that most children learn early in life. Join Eli the explorer as he moves through his world experiencing and engaging in language development.

How the App Works-
Eli is completely controlled by the user. Either hold him and drag him around the screen or tap and he will fly to that location. The exploration takes place in a large scene that scrolls both side to side and up and down. It's an infinite scene. There are no walls, it just rejoins itself. The scene encompasses mountains, houses, and forests and allows children to travel anywhere they want. Along the way golden stars appear. Dropping the explorer near the star elicits an animation or learning experience. Eli asks his mother about food in one scene and joins a monster rock band in another. Each scene uses different vocabulary and teaches children basic concepts.
Other areas of the scene are animated even without the stars. Flying past the fruit trees causes the fruit to be counted and fall into a basket. Flying across the clothesline labels each of the articles of clothing. The app focuses on categorical words like numbers, colors, animals, clothing, foods, and music. The game is intuitive and easy to use.
What Fun Educational Apps Liked
I thoroughly enjoyed that Eli Explorer is free exploration, allowing children to explore it at will. There is no linear storyline, so children are free to revisit anything they want. The scenes change upon revisiting, exposing children to more vocabulary words.
The basic words covered in the app are great for toddlers and preschoolers learning language. Also, the app is available in ten different languages. This might be a really neat tool for young children learning a second language. It reinforces the vocabulary with images so children are familiar with what's being said even if the word is in a different language.
In A Nutshell-
Eli Explorer is a nice learning app that focuses on early vocabulary acquisition. The ability to freely explore the scene is perfect for young children who are not quite ready for linear game play.
