Why isn't Boron or Aluminum included in Happy Atoms?

There were two reasons why we chose to exclude boron and aluminum from the Happy Atoms set. The first reason was science-based. The bonding behavior of boron and aluminum is a bit more complex than the other elements represented in the set. We decided it might dilute the bonding pattern we were trying to reach with the other elements. The other reason was more business-related. The number of compounds boron and aluminum form is limited and didn't justify the cost of adding two more manufactured elements to the system. We wanted to keep the price of the Happy Atoms as affordable as possible, so we made the decision to remove boron and aluminum from the set.

Why don't the characters actually have voices and vocalize the creations that appear on the screen?

There are a few reasons why we went this route:

1) There would be a great deal of dialog to record and place within the app, and the cost would be significant. We wanted to keep the set as budget-friendly as possible.
2) Many schools need apps to be used while muted, which means that audio alone wouldn't work for this part of our customer base. 
3) We plan to translate this game into as many languages as possible, and having to record dialog in many languages would make this task more difficult. 
4) The app is already large because of the big chemical database, and adding myriad voice recordings would make it much larger, which in turn, would make it harder to download and use the app.
