Now it’s become the basis for Disney’s new educational app, Numbers with Nemo. It’s an engaging first-maths app for kids, helping them practise counting from one to 10, as well as tracing numbers, counting objects and other fun tasks.
“Children are welcomed to join their undersea friends in lots of fun-filled activities that reinforce early math skills, including: counting and tracing numbers, counting and matching the number of objects in different groups, number identification, and sequencing,” explains its App Store listing.
There’s also a parents’ zone to keep tabs on how your children are progressing through the app – although to be honest, at this age, we think it’s more likely you’ll be using it with them, and seeing how they’re doing first-hand.
Numbers with Nemo costs £2.49 on the App Store, and runs on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. And a good counterpart, if you’re attracted by the Disney/education combination, is Letters with Pooh, an app starring Winnie the Pooh which came out earlier this year.
