What is it
If your little one loves trucks, they’ll really enjoy learning about numbers and counting on the construction site!
Kids Trucks Numbers & Counting works on number identification, counting, and one-to-one correspondence. Children use simple controls to move the crane and pick up the correct number, or tap the trucks to count them. The numbers are shown as digits and spoken aloud, helping familiarise children with numbers.

What our experts think
Children really enjoyed driving the trucks around; this app provided a fun way for children to practise their basic mathematical skills. We liked the way children were encouraged to identify numbers and count the trucks; this link between the spoken and written number and the actual skill of counting is an important one for children to master.
The animations were good and the use of bold colours made the app eye catching and engaging for young eyes.
There was a good level of praise within the app; children responded well to this and it is a great way of encouraging them to continue playing (and learning!)
It would be even better if...
Some of our little users found some of the vehicles hard to control at times – this could become frustrating.
