Learning Time With Timmy

Client British Council

We were asked to:

A series of 3 educational apps for non-native speaking 3-5yr olds to support their English language learning; teaching them their first numbers, colours, shapes and food with Timmy and his friends.

So we made:

Learning Time with Timmy 1 (launched in Feb 2015), followed by Learning Time with Timmy 2 (launched in April 2016) and finally Learning Time with Timmy 3 (launched in July 2016). All 3 are now available on Apple, Google Play, Amazon and Softbank platforms, individually as well as a bundle.

The apps feature a series of playful mini-games where children learn to identify and recognise new English words through fun but familiar game mechanics – including balloon popping, hidden object, pairs, object collecting. Learning outcomes, progression and rewards were carefully designed and rigorously tested with the support of an educational consultant. The games were developed from a series of core game engines which were designed to be rolled out for subsequent apps with new interactions and theming to introduce new lexical sets.


The game was released in Feb 2015 on the Apple store, Google Play and Amazon App Store.
