What is it
Join Duggee and the Squirrels at the Clubhouse as they work hard to earn their badges:
The Hair Badge – Cut, colour and style Duggee’s hair any way you want, using lots of different tools – a brush, scissors, colour dye and even hair growth cream for when you snip off too much. Frizzy hair, straight hair, blue hair…the choice is yours.
The Funny Face Badge – Using your superb powers of detection, can you help the Squirrels spot the correct leaves to add to their collections. Explore different interactive scenes to try to find the special leaves and discover a few familiar faces along the way.
The Drawing Badge – Select from different pens, pencils and paints to colour in the Squirrels however you choose – a pink and red Norrie with spots or a stripy Betty perhaps. When you’re happy with your drawing, watch with pride as Duggee displays your picture in the Clubhouse.
The Super Squirrel Badge – Dress up the Squirrels in an exciting range of heroic Super Squirrel outfits. Mix and match capes, masks, hats and more to style your Super Squirrel then watch them display their amazing costumes especially for you.
The Cake Badge – There’s lots of ingredients for you to add to your cake, so you’ll need to give it a good stir before Duggee pops it in the oven. The it’s time to decorate it with different coloured icing, sprinkles, fruit and more, present your cake to Duggee and the Squirrels so they can tuck in.
The Leaf Badge – Using your superb powers of detection, can you help the Squirrels spot the correct leaves to add to their collections. Explore different fully interactive scenes to try to find the special leaves and discover a few familiar faces along the way.

What our experts think
Children had lots of fun with this app – the Cake baking and Hair cut games were particularly popular!
The games in the app offer a chance for children to be creative with different materials and themes, from dying Duggee’s hair to creating funny faces on their own totem pole. Other skills are also developed – for example while baking the cake, children practise following instructions.
We liked how much guidance the game gave to children – the instructions are spoken aloud with a friendly and engaging voice and prompts are given if children get stuck.
It would be even better if...
Children might need some help when setting up their profile at the beginning, as they had trouble finding the correct letters. They also didn’t realise that they could scroll through colours and tools in the games by swiping left and right.
