Bottom Line: An interactive app to learn twelve opposite pairs in six different languages. Uses creative interactions, including shaking the device and “waking up” the characters with the microphone. More opposite pairs and more variety in the current pairs would make it a Top Pick, but it’s still a solid app for toddlers and preschoolers to learn opposites.

This is one cool app! There are two activities — in the first you match the first letter of a word to its corresponding toy picture.
It's the second activity that I'm really excited about, though. My kids already have an interest in learning Spanish from being exposed to Dora the Explorer so this game was warmly welcomed. Kids repeat a word in Spanish and if the the speech recognition bot thinks the pronunciation is correct the GoGo Lingo characters carry out their requests (ie: dance/baila, dance quickly/baila rápido).
Bottom line: Hold on — before you go run to your favorite translating site because you're afraid you've found the wrong website, rest assured. (And please don't leave.) SnowPo: The Trip for Fish & Chips is now available in Spanish! The same loveable polar bear, the same story, different language.
