More kiddie games have made their way to Windows phones and these are both titles that a lot of iPhone users will be familiar with. The first is Money Preschool Lunchbox:
Monkey Preschool Lunchbox is a collection of six exciting educational games for your preschooler (ages 2 to 4).
** FEATURES *** 6 different games that teach kids about colors, letters, counting, shapes, differences, and matching. Lovable animated monkey helps kids along as they play the games. Dozens of sounds and voice recordings of colors, letters, fruit names, and more. Stickers! Kids get a sticker reward after every other game they win. Designed for preschoolers — no confusing menus or navigation. Unlimited play! Each game flows right into the next.

It’s a game now have on my kids Touch and my Windows Phone and it’s great. It’s $2 but there’s no trial. I can tell you that it plays as expected but the touch controls are a drop less sensitive than I wish as ids fingers are less exact that adults and I wish there were more forgiveness there but it’s still a great title.
And next up is Lola’s Alphabet Train that’s $1.49 to own and also lacking a trial. here’s the description:
All aboard the learning train for a fun time! Specifically designed for 3-7 year olds, Lola’s Alphabet Train is a guaranteed way to keep your children coming back for more fun as they master their reading skills!
The Alphabet Train is actually five exciting games in one. Play games like “dragging and dropping” individual letters, “form a word”, and even a matching memory game to become more associated with the alphabet. As your children’s skills improve, the games gets more challenging, but still manage to be fun and engaging! Languages: English, French, German, Dutch and Spanish
The Windows Phone version lacks decent screenshots and has not reviews so I’m going with the iPhone version here and it has 4 stars at 117 ratings. I’ve bought it and I’ll be testing it out tomorrow.
We’re seeing more and more developers start to work on Windows Phones even on these types of games so the momentum is continuing.
