My kids have a slew of LeapFrog toys lying around the house. I can honestly say that most of them play the most annoying tunes. You know the sort of tunes I am talking about, the ones that stick in your mind and you end up humming them all day like “C says “kuh”, C says “kuh” every letter makes a sound, C says “kuh””. Crap, now it’s stuck in my head again.

I have a hard time when I am sitting near my kids getting them to leave my iPhone alone as it is. LeapFrog has now announced its first iPhone app called Number Rumble that will have them wanting to play with my phone even more. The game helps kids six to ten learn math by teaching addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.

The game has three modes including Learn It, Quiz Time, and Random Quiz. Learn It mode lets kids spin number wheels to make a problem and then push the equal sign to hear the answer to the problem. Quiz Time lets kids spin the number wheel to make a problem and shake the phone to get an answer. Random Quiz tests kids on all four operations at once. Number Rumble is available now on the App Store for $2.99.
