GOOD MORNING GAMES
Daniel Tiger has lots to do to get ready before Trolley comes to take him to school!
Get Dressed: Help Daniel get dressed in his red sweater. Then, imagine with Daniel that his sweater is a “Super Daniel” costume.
Breakfast: Help set the table as Daniel gets ready for breakfast. Have fun topping a pancake and then imagining that the pancake can dance!
Brush Teeth: Help Daniel brush his teeth by moving your finger back and forth.
Shoe Time: Choose a pair of shoes for Daniel to wear and help him tie them. Then, imagine that his shoes can make him jump super high.
GOOD NIGHT GAMES
Daniel Tiger needs to get ready for bed!
Bath time: Help Daniel get washed up before bedtime and pop silly soap bubbles together.
Brush Teeth: It’s time to brush Daniel’s teeth again!
Pajama Time: Choose pajamas for Daniel and create a pair of make-believe pajamas for him.
Bedtime Story: Move Daniel through the clouds as his mom reads and sings a calming bedtime song.
Play the Good Morning and Good Night songs at any time to reinforce each routine.
Use the built-in timer for some of your family’s morning and bedtime routines to help you and your child stay on task. The timer can be used to help children know how long they should brush their teeth.

What's New in Version 1.0.1
Great play value and engaging education
I am an instructional designer, and this is a well developed app. We have had it over a year, and my now three-year-old daughter still returns to it again and again. It is interesting to see Daniel both getting ready for school, and getting ready for bed. We enjoy the TV show and I think that the age appropriateness for young children is spot on. I like this much better than the other apps that are offered (neighborhood and feelings) because there's more to construct and the story has continuity and processes. The other ones she has lost interest in, but this one keeps bringing her back. I also like that mom and dad are present here. In DT's neighborhood app, it is creepy that the parents are never seen, just voices like ghosts!
My 2 year old loves it!
My 2 year old loves this app! We use the songs for bedtime and when we are getting ready during the day! The only thing she doesn't like is that the "pancake" part closes out easily and she can't go back to without replaying the whole part. I highly recommend this to anyone trying to set a routine for bedtime and getting ready in the morning.
I downloaded this app and the sound didn't work. I uninstalled and reinstalled twice. I made sure my iPad software was up to date. I followed all of the troubleshooting ideas for no sound from the website. I still have no sound. The sound works on every other app I have, so I know it is not my iPad. So much of this app involves sound, so now it feels like I just flushed $2.99 down the toilet... It's frustrating because my daughter earned this as a reward for good behavior all week, and now she can't even play with it! Argh! If you can fix it, I'll change my rating...
