Best apps for kids: role-playing games.


Apps for preschool kids including role play activities are helpful in developing social skills. Applications featuring different jobs, characters or situations teach kids about social rules and help them understand the world around them. Role play apps are also very useful for children with special needs.


Here is the ranking of the best, most educational and valuable role play apps for kids in Appysmarts catalog:

Pepi Bath Lite - Android Version

Pepi Bath Lite - Android Version

Price: free

Lite or Demo version
Android

Overall Score: 75/100

version reviewed: 1.0.8

reviewed:


Best for: Interactive play, Attention & concentration, Creativity, Eye-hand coordination, Interaction, Personal & social, Thinking & problem solving, Understanding of the world

What it is: a role-play game for learning about hygiene and self-care situations in a funny way.

What you do with it: guide one of the two characters through 2 different situations: at the sink and washing clothes. Perform short tasks (in a sequence or freely) like washing hands, brushing teeth, undressing and putting clothes in the washing machine etc.

What we liked: the concept, funny illustrations and sound effects, cute and 'responsive' characters, sense of humor, the 'learning through fun' aspect. The app is extremely easy to navigate and operate.

What we didn't like: we would like to see more interactive elements (and maybe more tasks or even challenges - especially for older kids). The educational value could be higher (e.g. adding a narrator who could explain the purpose of some of the actions like brushing teeth etc).

Note about the lite version: contains prominent 'get 2 more levels' button embedded in the menu.
