Ideal for kids aged 7 – 10
Mindful Powers™ is designed to be a part of your child’s daily routine. It is simple, easy, and fun to use, so kids can pick it up and use it at any point in their day. The two key features are:
• Mindful Play | voice-guided mindfulness sessions
• Focus Time | a task timer
Through a series of 10 progressive and interactive voice-guided sessions, kids learn how to master the powers of mindfulness – the ability to know and understand what is happening in one’s head at any given moment, without getting carried away by it. Before each lesson, kids sooth their very own Flibbertigibbet™, who is in an agitated state, with the touch of their finger. This sensory-based repetitive interaction triggers the body’s rest and digest response, helping kids relax and regain focus.
The Flibbertigibbet™ self-set timer helps kids set mental parameters around a given task by applying focus time until completion. When the focus timer is on, Mindful Powers™ deters kids from using the device for any other purpose, encouraging them to work towards completing their tasks.
Mindful Powers helps grow the following skills:
• Calmness & relaxation
• Stress & anxiety reduction
• Concentration & focus
• Navigating big emotions
• Getting along with others
“Mindful Powers™ is not a cookie cutter approach to mindfulness. Based on contextual behavioral science and inspired by an approach to therapy called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, it recognizes that the mindfulness experience is a psychological experience that can be learned in small bits and gradually presented and trained.”
— Dr. Roger Vilardaga, Assistant Professor at Duke University

Flibbertigibbet has been working hard to improve the Mindful Powers App! With this update we've added a new feature; you can now pick different smoothing settings for Flibbertigibbet. If the current setting feels like there's too many spiky bumps to smooth-out, head over to the settings section of the app and select the "No extra bumpy spikes" option for a more relaxing smoothing experience. The app now supports newer iPhone screens and our new privacy update is Flibbertigibbet's way of showing you how much your satisfaction matters to us. Flibbertigibbet has been hard at work fixing minor bugs.
Ratings and Reviews
This is a great app, the flibbertigibbet is cute and I like how when you complete a story your plant grows and you get new actions for the flibbertigibbet to do.
Also, the stories are very useful, and make you more mindful, for example, after the body scan, I knew a lot more about what I was feeling, and also why I was feeling this. As well as this, the stories are interesting to listen to, which made me want to listen to them.
However, I'm trying to collect all of the awards, but whenever I spend time on the focus timer, (e.g. 5 minutes), I don't get the award. :(
But it's still a very good app :)

Thank you for the very thoughtful review Bjdmjjvmksjudc,linking! We are so happy to learn that Mindful Powers helps you calm your mind and focus your attention. And Flibbertigibbet appreciates all the time you spend with him! Thank you for bringing our attention to the issue of the Focus Time achievements not working. We are working on a fix for the next update. We will be sure to follow up and let you know when we fixed this issue and updated the app. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Love smoothing out the creature - an app where you only did this would also be great!! With lots of different characters 👍
