Kids Learn While They Play


This educational app from Visuals Work teaches young children simple cause and effect using fireworks and the concepts of numbers 1-3, big or small, and the colors red, green, or blue.

For instance, if your child touches the number 1, BIG, and red, one big red firework will be displayed on the screen. Then by touching the “launch” option in the top right corner or touching the black section of the screen, your child is rewarded by a fireworks display of one big red firework, complete with sound effects.  To find out more about the game, touch the question mark at the bottom left of the screen.


3 Little Green Fireworks


Each time your child makes a different selection, the display screen changes. This means there are actually 18 different combinations your child may choose. The timing of the reward is always at the choice of your child.


What I Like About Fireworks 123


  • The number,  size, and color can be changed independently of each other.
  • The app is simple in that it only addresses three numbers, two sizes, and three colors.
  • The user is able to control when the fireworks explode

Suggestions for Improvement


  • Add an audio feature to reinforce the different choices (e.g. When 1 is selected, the user hears “one”)
  • Add some more levels to the game


This is a free app and could be useful in teaching your young child about cause and effect. Try it out today.

    it is really useful for students with autism, it enables them to sort out things, and the best way to cope with the fast-changing world that they are in.

My name is Jack Kieffer and I'm a blogger sharing my love of technology at blogs like Cool Gizmo Toys, Greenamajigger, and here at Autism Plugged In where I'm trying to make a difference in the lives of children with autism.

Several years ago, I began volunteering with special needs kids, who gave me much joy and an appreciation for life. This blog is my way of giving back. Any proceeds from this effort are used to support my friends with autism. Read more about Jack or connect with him on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn.
