What is it

Create your own little dancing character in Labo Dancing Kids! Children can choose a template to colour in or draw their own character from scratch – they can even use a photo of themselves!

Their characters then come alive in 3 dancing games – tap the emoticon to perform a move, swipe to make up your own routine, or try to remember and copy the other dancer’s moves.

What our experts think

Children loved drawing their own characters and being able to choose templates and colours to use. The freestyle game was particularly popular and lets children play imaginatively. The emoticon game is fast paced and helps children practise their concentration and attention skills to make sure they don’t miss tapping on the faces! The copying game gets children to remember a move (such as swipe up or down) to get their character to perform.

It would be even better if...

It would be nice if the characters for the games were more gender neutral – boys did enjoy the rest of the game but were a little put off by this.

In the freestyle game one feature that was liked but is easy to miss is the ‘add character’ button (the ‘+’ symbol in the top right corner) that lets children create a dance floor full of the different characters they have made.
