# The smurfs – counting and learning to calculate: great school starter app

✔ iPad + iPhone – app for preschool & 1st Class

Anyone looking for the Smurfs in the App Store has recently found a very sloppy math app for children: "The Smurfs – Learn to count and calculate. Smurf yourself smart“From Blue Ocean Entertainment offers an extensive collection of mathematical exercises, which are personally moderated by Papa Schlumpf. Many other smurfs can also be seen and make learning fun.

For the preschool & first class

With a view to the included math exercises, the app is particularly recommended for first-year school starters. However, some types of tasks are also suitable for preschoolers, also because the app does not require reading skills. All tasks are explained and moderated in detail by Papa Schlumpf. In the following overview we have sorted the educational games according to the level of difficulty and also tell you which smurf the children encounter in the game.

• Count things – with Farmi Smurf
• Differentiated numbers – in the smurf village
• Determine order – with Clumsy Smurf
• Count plus – with Jokey Smurf
• Compare numbers – with the soccer smurfs
• Insert and add numbers – with Handy Handy-Schlumpf
• Expect minus – with Beauty Smurf
• Insert and subtract numbers – with Torti the confectioner Smurf

As you can also see on the screenshots, the answer options are graphically appealing to choose from. A simple touch on the right one Result is enough to get to the next task.

Automatic level of difficulty

The level of difficulty increases automatically when the tasks are solved correctly. When playing through again, the children can also select one of three game levels. The claim differs significantly, which we like very much. For example, in the game "Compare numbers with the soccer smurfs" in the highest level, a small addition task must first be solved before the numbers can be compared.

Preview video

In our preview video we slip through all 8 educational games and also show you one of the comics with which the children after this Solving all three levels will be rewarded.
