Educational Objectives
Elevate your child’s social intelligence with the concept of sharing.

Teach your child appropriate social behavior to prepare them to be respectful human beings in the future.

Description
Your child will explore the playground with Baby Haha. They will encounter several social situations that can occur while playing at the playground. Your child will be asked to help Baby Haha make respectful social decisions, related to the importance of sharing.

How to Maximize the Learning Experience
During Play
  1. Baby Haha and Hohoha Monkey arrive at the soccer field at the same time. There is only one soccer ball. Your child will be asked what Baby Haha should do: take the ball and play alone or share the soccer ball and play soccer with Hohoha Monkey. If your child chooses not to share and play alone, Hohoha Monkey will become sad and your child will be redirected back to the edge of the field. If the correct response is given, Baby Haha and Hohoha Monkey will play soccer together and have a lot of fun. By dragging his/her finger towards the goal, your child will be able to score a goal, while building hand-eye coordination and concentration skills.
  2. The next stop is the sandbox. Baby Haha and Panda arrive at the same time and both want to build sandcastles. There is only one shovel. Your child will be asked what Baby Haha should do: take the shovel and play alone, or share the shovel – taking turns and building a castle with Panda together. If he/she chooses to play alone, Panda will become sad and Baby Haha will be redirected to the edge of the sandbox. If the correct response is given, Baby Haha and Panda will enjoy building castles together. Your child will have the opportunity to build a castle too. By choosing the shapes from the top of the screen, they can drag the shapes down and design a castle of their dreams.
  3. The ducks are hungry. Baby Haha brought bread to the park to feed the ducks. Billy Ant wants to feeds the ducks too. Your child will be asked what Baby Haha should do: share the bread with Billy Ant and feed the ducks together or keep the bread and feed the ducks alone. If your child suggests feeding the ducks alone, Billy Ant will feel sad and Baby Haha will be redirected to the edge of the feeding area. If the correct response is given, Baby Haha will share the bread with Billy Ant and they will feed the ducks together. Your child will build hand-eye coordination while helping with feeding the ducks. They will then drag the bread and aim it at the ducks.
  4. Billy Ant, Hohoha Monkey, and Panda are playing Hide and Seek. Baby Haha really wants to play too. Your child will be asked what Baby Haha should do: ask nicely if he can play too or not ask and play alone. If your child suggests playing alone, Baby Haha will feel sad and be redirected to the edge of the park. If your child suggests asking to play, all the friends will have a fun time together. Your child will use careful observation and hand-eye coordination skills while playing Hide and Seek. Once a friend has been found, your child will touch the friend and continue looking for the others.
