What our experts think
This is a cute app the children really enjoyed. It can be a challenge getting children to take on the responsibility of their own self-care, the fun perspective this app brings is both informative and educational for children of the right age as well as being engaging.
It would be even better if...
The children loved it when the Pepi character said thank you once they had completed some tasks – they love to hear it say thank you every time and this helps to encourage good manners too.
Sit with your child as they play with this app and look for opportunities to help them learn more as they go. For example, get them to tell you the steps involved in washing their hands or going to the toilet.
