Full Review:

Forget Angry Birds—help your little one soar to the head of her math class with this avian-themed pre-multiplication app. Instead of targeting green pigs, your little learner will aim her feathered friend at the answer to a math problem.

Tilting the smart device to aim, she'll be building her spatial and cognitive awareness as she plays. The best part is that she'll get to explore the concepts behind multiplication with easily understandable dot visuals before actually having to solve equations. A beginner will start out flying her bird towards the higher of two numbers shown as dot charts, the first precursor to multiplication. As she advances through levels, the problems get more difficult and the bird moves more quickly.

Can she answer these multiplication problems and help her little bird collect enough feathers to rebuild its fallen nest? Once she's conquered the first ten levels of difficulty, you'll have the option of purchasing additional levels to keep her multiplication skills sharp.
