ABCmouse offers plenty of customisation from selecting your preferred teacher, to choosing pets and creating an avatar of your child that will allow them to better connect with the activities. This allows the experience to be suitable for everyone and with the ability to have multiple children under the one account you can ensure that every child advances at their own pace.

While the amount of content can first seem overwhelming ABCmouse does make it easier by offering pre-determined learning paths for users to follow along with which will mix and match various activities to focus on a single topic. For example when selecting preschool level activities the first lesson covers reading with a focus on the sounds of A and B with a mixture of colouring, tracing, reading, games, memory match and printable activities. The strong variety keeps the game entertaining while also offering the important repetitiveness that is required in a learning environment.

ABCmouse also allows you to have more freedom over the learning experience with the ability to go through and complete activities as you please. On top of all the learning content you’ll also get the pleasure of visiting the zoo, petpark, farm and even your own room which have even more activities to engage in.

In your personal room players can change their avatars look with all sorts of costumes, decorate their fish tank or create the perfect habitat for their hamster. Each one of these actions comes with a ticket price tag, tickets are earned for completing activities or lessons and are a fun way to reward hard working students.

The mixture of learning, gaming and activities in ABCmouse offers a perfect balance between fun and personal development. If you have children between the ages of 2 and 6 you won’t be disappointed with the breadth of available content.
