What is it
Learn to write your numbers with Magic Numbers. Explore a magical world and cast number spells by writing the numbers 1 to 10. The wizard is trying to ‘magic up’ a special present for the king, but when his spells go wrong you have to step in and use ‘number spells’ to make everything normal again. Each time the wizard causes chaos you practice more and more numbers!

What our experts think
Children loved the wizard theme – they found the frogs very funny! The app tells children how to trace the shape of the number, and gives them dots to follow. At this age children are learning to count from 1-20 and the app encourages them to practise this skill.
It would be even better if...
There is no ‘end’ to the game, so children didn’t feel rewarded for their efforts. The tracing also requires children to be very accurate, otherwise their answer is considered wrong, which could put children off who are just starting out.
