A virtual interactive playhouse for children. The screen responds to children as they explore the different areas of the room. This is great to help children create stories as they move the characters around different rooms and situations. There are lots of opportunities to name objects around the house and talk about how they are used together. Children and adults can also talk about sequencing as children move the characters around, for example discussing morning routines, 'what do you do first, what do you do after you brush your teeth?'. Parents or adults can get more involved by giving children instructions to follow. Characters are able to interact with one another and you can talk with children about different verbs and action words, including self-care (i.e. washing, brushing teeth). Ethnically diverse characters within the family. Great opportunities for parents to continue play with real life small world toys and dolls houses. This app developer also has a range of other situational apps, such as school and store, for further opportunities for play.
