What is it
In Dr. Panda’s Home, children can take charge and help the animals complete their chore lists.
They’ll take care of everything from hanging laundry, to mopping floors, to making breakfast with these adorably animated animals. As they do chores and tasks they’ll earn coins to put in their piggy bank, which they can use to buy fun rewards, from saxophones to rocket ships!

What our experts think
Dr. Panda’s Home is a lovely big environment to explore, full of different activities covering lots of different skills. It was lovely seeing one of the girls giggle when the chore list sparkled. We thought setting the clock before bedtime was particularly good because it can help children practice telling the time.
The different chores can help children understand the types of housework, which they may recognise, as well as familiarise them with self-care routines like having a bath.
The piggy bank was really popular and can teach children about saving money to buy the rewards they want.
It would be even better if...
Children might need some help to begin with to find out how to start the activities, by tapping the chore list on the top right corner. A bit more prompted to press this as well as guidance on how to do each activity and the need to scroll up/down to find the different rooms would also help, currently some adult support is needed to get started for many children.
