From P.C. Stoecklin and Associates:
Intended Audience Bubble Phonics and Bubble Phonics Free is an introduction for toddlers to the phonetic sounds of the consonants and short vowels.
The Game Bubble Phonics Free provides a glimpse of the full version which is an entertaining phonics learning experience with colorful bubbles, audio and animated graphics. This free version allows the user to see the method used to introduce phonics to young toddlers. The free version is limited to three phonetic experiences. The game begins with graphical images that start with either a consonant or short vowel sound such as a seal for the letter s. Translucent bubbles containing random letters float across the screen inviting your child to choose the bubble containing the letter that makes the beginning sound. As an example, a voice instructs "Choose the letter that makes the beginning sound of the word seal". The image of a seal appears in the upper corner of the screen. A further hint is provided as the voice pronounces the letter s. Your child searches the floating bubbles to find the correct letter. Your child is rewarded with an audio response and a whimsical graphic animation when the correct letter is chosen. Otherwise, the child is gently encouraged to try again. Each incorrect selection reduces the set of incorrect letters, eventually leaving only the correct letter.
