Is bath time a battle in your household? Does your normally docile child turn into a raging whirlwind when you try to get him or her into the tub? If you answered "YES" to any of these questions, you might want to check out Dr. Panda Bath Time.
Available now, it's a new interactive app where kids help Dr. Panda and friends get cleaned up. Along the way, they also learn that developing good hygiene routines can be a lot of fun.
Time for a Bath!
The app begins by asking kids to open the bathroom door. A randomly selected Dr. Panda character will come in, covered in dirt, and request help in cleaning up. By looking at the icons on the top right, kids can find out what each character needs, be it a bath or a change of clothes.
To navigate the bathroom, simply tap the arrows on either sides of the screen. There are six spots available: the laundry corner, bathtub, shower, toilet, sink, and closet. Kids can discover a different activity at each spot. At the laundry corner, for example, they can load up the washing machine and hang the wet clothes to dry.
The other things kids can do include giving the cute characters a soak in the tub, adjusting the water temperature in the shower, helping them go potty, brushing their teeth, and dressing them up in various outfits. Even though the app does tell kids what should be done for each character, it's also open ended in the sense that kids don't have to do those tasks right away. They can also replay any activity as many times as they like.
Parents Need to Know
Dr. Panda Bath Time is suitable for kids aged 5 and under. The goal of the app is to support good health and hygiene practices in a playful way, and there are no rules or scores to worry about. Instead, kids are free to discover for themselves what they can do in the app.
All Dr. Panda apps are safe for kids. They contain no third-party adverts, in-app purchases, or links to external sites. No Internet connection is required to use the app.
Things I Like
There are lots of apps that teach kids about personal hygiene, but Dr. Panda Bath Time is one of the more well-made ones. It has great graphics, adorable characters, and nice music. It's also easy to use and doesn't require any reading.
Diving into the app, kids will be delighted by lots of small surprises. While the characters are in the bath tub, for example, kids can drop colorful soap to change the color of the water. They can also dry off the character with the magical blow dryer, which blows rainbow air. What's also nice is that each character has a unique personality and a range of reactions.
If you're looking for a stress-free app to get your kids accustomed to good hygiene habits, Dr. Panda Bath Time is perfect. This vibrant, fun-filled app will get them giggling away while helping Dr. Panda and friends clean up. Highly recommended.
