[numberblocks app]Pre-school property Numberblocks joins the CBeebies Go Explore app


  The popular pre-school property, Numberblocks has now joined the CBeebies Go Explore app in the form of a new skill-testing numeracy game called Number Magic Run. The new game features popular character from the CBeebeis show as it encourages kids to add, subtract, and complete a number of puzzles.

  Number Magic Run?offers an opportunity for children and parents alike to engage with numeracy in a fun and encouraging environment. Mixing learning with simple gameplay, children can learn at their own pace as they help the Numberblocks characters travel through caves and mountains in search of some shiny treasure.

  Rachel Bardill, executive editor, BBC Children’s, said: “We’re excited to bring another new way to nurture key early years skills in the Go Explore app, this time with our favourite Numberblocks friends. With Number Magic Run, we hope to give little ones a chance to pick up and practice their numeracy in a fun way.”

  Go Explore is features free games and videos based on the early years curriculum starring CBeebies’ favourites, from phonics with the Alphablocks to shapes with Hey Duggee. Number Magic Run?follows the launch of Your Mindful Garden, a mindfulness game voiced by Stephen Fry, which was added to the app earlier this year.

  Number Magic Run was developed by BBC Children’s with help from an education consultant.
