A Doctoring App
Kids join Dr. Panda in his veterinarian hospital to help him cure his eight sick patients. By following the sequence of selecting a patient in the waiting room, settling the sick animal into a hospital bed, investigating what is wrong and then nursing the animal back to health, preschoolers start to learn the routines involving going to the doctor.
How Kids Play
In the app's 10 minigames, kids drop medicine into a bear's pink eye, realign a monkey's broken ribs, and take a puppy's blood pressure. They also rub ointment on spots and even give a patient a shot. Some of the games aren't quite so serious.
Why This App is Good
The sick animals, while sad, are adorable and so appreciative of your child's doctoring. The app is simple to navigate without any words shown or spoken. A peppy sound track contributes to the fun, as does the fall of confetti when you cure a patient.
How Kids Learn
By putting kids in control of these medical procedures, the app makes doctor visits less scary.
This is a great app to play before heading off to your next doctor's appointment.
