Oh no! The laundry has taken over the house!
Super Home Hero provides your family with opportunities to explore math, science and critical thinking concepts while doing an everyday activity—the laundry.
Discover super hero pretend play, interactive games and suggestions for simple activities and conversations along the way. Your young child will use super hero abilities in order to complete each cycle of the laundry with your help.
But be careful! There are silly dirt monsters and water blobs lurking about. Only your little one can save the day!
Only 3 activities?
I love the animation but there are only 3 activities! Wash (get rid of some dirt monsters by clicking on them) dry the clothes simply by dragging from washer to dryer... thats it on that one...and fold the clothes by completing a pattern. The first two activities might be good for toddlers but they couldn't do the 5 or so pattern questions they ask on the "fold section". This might be a good app if you want to get kids interested in helping with laundry although in my experience, they already are! If they add more chores it would probably be worth the download especially considering the nice graphics but good golly! 3 activities that take about 3 minutes to complete?!
Has potential, but it keeps crashing on me. It would be lovely if there were a 'skip to main menu' feature at startup. The 'oh NO' in the beginning was quite the unnecessary wake up call.
Please fix the crashes. Installed twice and never got past the intro. Tapped on the boy and then it crashes. But good idea.
