In this utterly irresistible app, 18 words come to life. They do what they're told, and they tell children what they do.

Players choose a word from the box (released at random), or from a list in the conversation bubble. Tapping makes the magic happen.

Tap the word to see, and understand, its meaning. Tap the two characters (we're guessing bees, as in spelling) to see how they act out each word's meaning (spin, sparkle, stretch, and laugh). Watching learners - young and not so young - imitate the bees' actions is hilarious. Watching young eyes grow wide with wonder as they direct the wordplay is gratifying. But explaining what each word does will spoil the fun. And the fun of learning is what this is all about.
