Having played other Wombi apps, I was excited to check out Hippo Shower Time! With Hippo Shower Time!, kids can clean a dirty hippo and learn all about getting clean! This app is geared towards children ages 3 years old and up. I thought that this app had a great concept, teaching kids about getting clean with a fun game.
Ok, you have a dirty hippo on your hands…what do you do? It’s Hippo Shower Time! During the game, kids can turn on various shower heads to spray water on the dirty hippo. The problem is, sometimes those faucets malfunction and spray cold water on the hippo…which he does not like! When the hippo gets too cold in the shower, he will jump out and plop back into the mud…time for another shower. Kids can take turns with friends and family showering the hippo and see who will be the next one to turn on the cold water. So, as you can see, this game is meant to be a social game with an element of surprise. The object of the game is to not be the one who sprays the hippo with cold water, and you can play alone, with a partner, or with your whole family! Players will take turns as they pass around the device in this “digital board game”. The game is very easy to play, simply use the touchscreen on your device to tap the faucets, pull levers, push buttons and spin wheels to animate the various shower heads.
I really enjoyed the Hippo Shower Time! app. I think that kids will enjoy the suspense of not knowing when the cold water will spray, as well as the fun animations and the lovable hippo character. If you would like to share a new family style digital board game with your child, be sure to check out Hippo Shower Time!
