Highlights Monster Day is the ideal first app for kids 3+, and easy for kids to play on their own.

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 during his daily routine and other fun adventures.

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

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 are a great way for preschoolers to practice fine motor skills.

Young children can have fun discovering 24 different scenes in the daily life of 5 different monsters, including ringing an alarm clock in the morning, eating exotic fruit for breakfast, investigating semi-precious stones in geology at school, making apple pie together at the farm and building a rocket at the museum.

Amazing game I recommend it!

This game is the best when I want to calm myself or have alone time. I really recommend it for toddlers and 4567 year olds. I really hope you get it.

Cute game, don’t pay for the additional locations!

This game is fun and somewhat educational for my daughter who had a blast playing the “free version”. So I purchased the Museum and Farm locations for $3.99. Wish I hadn’t! The new locations were exactly the same as the free version, but had many glitches in moving objects and NOTHING new except buzzing a sheep’s hair off it’s head. Awful, lame, absolute crap. Refund please.

Developer Response ,

Hi, we're sorry to hear that. We work hard to provide the best content for growing minds. To address the glitching, I would suggest uninstalling and reinstalling the app and possibly powering down and powering up your device. If you are still experiencing technical difficulties please email us at highlights-apps@highlights.com. Thank you.
