These water bears are sad and dehydrated. They need YOU to help get water to fall on their bubbles. Water bears are picky drinkers, though, so each one will only accept water of a particular color. You'll need to put your pipes in the right place and manipulate the color of the water to make all of the water bears happy.

Really cute, clever idea

Those little water bears are so cute, and I really enjoy the clever 3D setup. It's great for my iPad, where it's easy to rotate the puzzle and check it out from different angles. I like the baked in tutorial structure too.

Love water bears

I play this with my four year old son and we both love it! Challenging and fun. Very educational and perfect if your child likes to build or solve puzzles

Wow… gasps from the kiddos

Though I don’t necessarily think of this as a ‘kids’ game’, my 7 and 11 year old love it. SO much so that they work together, to go through every level (so that neither skips one). I love the problem solving and spatial cognition happening here… they are really enjoying it. (Plus… water bears are tardigrades… which is one of the coolest organisms anywhere). Well done!
