Hat Monkey is a small monkey with a hat who needs our help around the house. Young children will find the objectives satisfying as they help Monkey do everyday things they cannot yet do themselves, like turning off lights, opening the door for him, turning the pages of his bedtime book or sending text messages. They can also speak with him on the phone, and play music or simple games like hide and seek. The beautiful simplified graphics and interactions allow even the youngest children to identify what Monkey wants, to empathise with him, and learn how they can help him.

Chris Haughton’s award-winning books ‘A Bit Lost’, ‘Oh No, George!’ and ‘SHH!, we have a plan’ have been translated into over 20 languages around the world. Instead of adapting his books, Hat Monkey was conceived and designed from the start as a stand alone app with engaging interaction at its core.

Love the giggles

I downloaded this app a long time ago and it has been a hit with my two year old son for months. He loves the hide and seek game, feeding the monkey bananas, and giving the monkey a high five. The whole time he has this app on, he just giggles nonstop. My only issues are: there is a bit of reading for a child under five so that they know what to do with each stage (this could easily be fixed by adding a VoiceOver option). It is easy to click over to the next stage accidentally. Some of the stages, like sending a text, seem to go over his head. I'm sure that will change as he gets older, though. Overall I'm glad I downloaded this app!

A must have for all ages!

Chris Haughton's Hat Monkey is AMAZING.
It's fun, engaging, clever and packed full of unique features. The fact that it's visually stunning doesn't hurt.
Hat Monkey is a terrifically expressive character who you'll instantly fall in love with. While features like texting Hat Monkey, feeding him bananas, and watching him dance will provide kids with hours of entertainment, its humor and sophistication will appeal to adults.
I'm a big fan of Chris Haughton's picture books and now I'm a big fan of his app.

Great conversation starter

This is darling. There's so much to talk about if an adult and child do this together (e.g., where do you think the monkey will hide next?). Great that it can be used with so many languages, too - I will be able to use it in my work with young children.
