Pepi Bath App
By Antanas Marcelionis
Age Recommendation 4+ years.
Pepi Bath will make you and your kids smile. The player must assist the character to get cleaned up in four different environments choosing to be either a boy or girl. The four areas are the bath, bathroom sink, toilet and laundry. There is a lite version available offering just two of these levels being the laundry and bathroom sink.
This app exposes the child to good hygiene routines and sequencing of events such as soap before water, flush after toileting, rinse hair after shampooing and many others. Kids can follow the sequences but are also able to randomly interact with the environment.
These guys have done a great job with making the character react to what you do. Put too much cold water in the bath they shiver, too much hot, their faces turn red. These characters truly are appealing with their big eyes and child like scruffiness.
I wish though the toilet paper would fall into the toilet and not the bin. I hope they get lots of emails about this as it’s so wrong making it such a shame! This though does not stop me from loving this app and seeing the benefits and smiles it will bring to young children.
A little hint before you start… the girl’s boots and boy’s shoes go in the laundry cupboard.
Compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, 4S, 5, iPod touch 3rd, 4th, 5th generation and iPad. Requires iOS 4.0 or later.
