Happi Full Throttle puts your child in the driver’s seat of 4 really cool vehicles. With the help of the iPad’s camera and a dashboard full of buttons, levers and of course a steering wheel, Happi Full Throttle will make your child feel like a real Fireman, Race car driver, Pilot or Submarine captain.
How it works:
Each vehicle come with a nice rendition of a dashboard packed with some of the most identifying features for that vehicle all made to be manipulated by young drivers. Sitting on top of the dashboard is your windscreen which will show exactly what your iPad’s back camera is seeing.
The interactive dashboard and the windscreen together give kids the feeling of piloting the vehicle for real. Just choose a vehicle from the main menu and get ready drive, honk, splash, wipe, accelerate, blink, blast, ping, dive and much more...
If your child (or your inner kid...) want to do all this in the living room, in the back seat of the family car, in the back yard or any other place you can think of, is up to you.
There are currently 4 different vehicles included with the following features. We will add more if you like the app. Please tell us about your vehicle and feature suggestions at facebook.com/happipapiapps

What's New in Version 1.0.1
Get those wiggles out with rescuing and running around!
Happi Full Throttle is a fantastic app designed for active play. Follow the parent recommendations to encase your device in something protective like an OtterBox, because the child must move around with it to really have fun. There are four transportation environments for the child to explore: firetruck, helicopter, sportscar, and submarine. Each has a different feel, but are related enough to be friendly to a youngster. Great to get kids moving!
There are just so many things to love about this app! It's simple and focused, which is a huge bonus. It's obvious what to do from the first screen. The play is exploratory and active, so it engages the mind and the body. It would be great to see this in use with a couple of kids with iPhones all pretending to go to a rescue of some sort. What a great expansion of play!
A cute new way to play with an ipad...lol. This is a fun little app that allows little ones to be in the drivers seat of 4 different vehicles, a fire truck, a helicopter, a racecar, and a submarine (our favorite). I wish they had this when I was a kid. I don't think I would've put this down. What a great way to excite imagination and play. The dashboards are wonderful and have many different options; you can even spray water from the fire truck and peer through a periscope aboard the submarine. I think it would be really neat if they could add even a few more vehicles like a snow mobile, a school bus, a tractor, or a train. This is a fantastic app and comes highly recommended for all little ones.
Original, fun and engaging app
This app is fun for young children and helps build creative imaginative play skills. The app allows a child to be in the drivers seat of different vehicles and even a sub. The different features in each vehicle are fun to explore, see how they work, and what sounds they will make. Also, with the use of the camera, the child can walk around their environment and really get into heir role of operating the vehicle. The firetruck has been a hit with the use of the water hose and pretending to put out fires.
