This app is a virtual pet with amazing graphics. The focus is not on traditional literacy but it can work as a tool for becoming familiar with ICT. The games are simple, such as a hide and seek game and an animal puzzle, or simply watching the little kitten making fun moves into the room. It will keep children engaged for some time, as they discover all the different interactions. The most creative feature is the paw painting where you can mix colours and create paintings and make marks with a paw mark or paintbrush, an opportunity, with an adult's prompt, for practising early writing skills. Although children can easily learn to manipulate the app autonomously, joint-use is recommended, as the entertaining animations can also work as prompt for conversation.
