Starfall All About Me is a universal app from Starfall Education.

It is a lovely, clever app with loads to teach your child all about themselves and their environment and help enhance their vocabulary whilst also been fun.

There is so much in this app, much more than you would expect when you see the price.  

The opening screen starts off with the question -

Who am I?

And from there the fun unfolds,
We started off with the small boy being himself, the app asks for his age, his favourite pet, we got to pick his hair colour and style, eye shape and colour, nose shape, skin colour and we even gave him freckles.  There is a basic clothes, shoes and glasses choice.

We got to pick our pet from a choice of 4 (can’t give away everything) and we got to choose what to feed him and what activity he likes.  Our pet dinosaur had a very dodgy diet and some very strange play activities by the time we were finished.

You get to choose your bed and it’s blanket and here is the really clever bit.  The app stores your information about your pet and toy and incorporates it in further screens.  Look out for pictures on the walls and in the kitchen scene the pet’s dinner bowl has the food you chose for your pet.

Small boy even got to choose his perfect sister with pink hair and her flying cat

What I love about this app is that as well as being tons of fun, colourful and clever, it really opened up discussions on all sorts, for example - why people all have different features, hair styles, clothes styles, etc.
It is a great app to use with children with special needs, as it is easy to use for anyone with fine motor problems, it can help with learning about the different rooms in the home and the appliances and furniture in them.  

There is a huge amount of content in the app and well worth the price

and on that note all there is left to say is ...
