Sam Phibian

Sam Phibian makes counting fun.

Sam Phibian can only make it through the day by counting the bugs he eats. Eating too many bugs--or eating the silly things in his swamp that aren't bugs at all--will cause Sam to grow too big for his lily pad!

Sam Phibian combines attractive graphics, fun game play, and just the right amount of absurdity to create an interactive experience that makes counting practice engaging for young (and old!) learners.
