More on Highlights Monster Day:

PROMOTES CARING VALUES
This game is based on the positive values of kindness, compassion and friendship, and inspires kids to think about others. In the game, the player makes friends with a monster and cares for him. This builds character and confidence in young children by making them feel good about themselves.

PROVIDES MEANINGFUL LEARNING

The game portrays monsters in the context of a child's everyday routine, so lessons such as regularly brushing teeth and going to school are relevant.

DEVELOPS FINE MOTOR SKILLS

In the game, children tap, swipe, complete circle rotations, drag and drop, and pump levers. Some activities require quick reflexes on these actions. These activities and finger motions improve fine motor skills for preschoolers.

ENCOURAGES EXPLORATION

Young children can have fun discovering 16 different scenes in the daily life of 5 different monsters, including ringing an alarm clock to wake him up, feeding him exotic fruit for breakfast and investigating semi-precious stones in geology at school.

INCLUDES PHOTO FEATURE

Take photos of favorite activities in your monster’s day and save them in your device's photo gallery.
