Once on board, the player can choose from a variety of activities; on the right side of the screen are the icons to select from:rainbow star, which will take the player to a group of alphabet-themed puzzles to connect-the-dots, mazes, find hidden letters or watch a moviemusical notes, which take the player to the alphabet songalligator, who provides assistancecrossroads, which exit the current screenIn the center of the screen are all the letters in upper and lower case. When the player chooses a letter, he will see a short animation and then go to a screen full of clickable characters and items - those that start with his chosen letter will be interactive.
