Highlights Monster Day is the ideal first app for kids 3+, and easy for kids to play on their own.

This game is based on the positive values of kindness, compassion and friendship, and inspires kids to think about others. In the game, the player makes friends with a monster and cares for him during his daily routine and other fun adventures.

The game portrays monsters in the context of a child's everyday routine, so lessons such as regularly brushing teeth, going to school and taking field trips are relevant.

In the game, children tap, swipe, complete circle rotations, drag and drop, and pump levers. Some activities require quick reflexes on these actions. These activities and finger motions are a great way for preschoolers to practice fine motor skills.

Young children can have fun discovering 24 different scenes in the daily life of 5 different monsters, including ringing an alarm clock in the morning, eating exotic fruit for breakfast, investigating semi-precious stones in geology at school, making apple pie together at the farm and building a rocket at the museum.

Cute graphics. No annoying ads. Not much here, though. It's a good start. Needs much more content. Music WAY too repetitive. Didn't try add-ons yet. At 3.99 each, they would need to have far more game play than this free one. We finished all the option in less than 10 minutes.

This game is so cute. However, I bought the full version and feel a bit ripped off. The free game has lots of activities so it would lead you to think the paid portion would have just as many. This is not the case. Paid games add on have half the amount of activities and some of the same activities in each game. I'm disappointed really. I hardly ever pay for games and I wish I didn't with this one. Not worth 4 dollars.

Too pricey for only three game-scene option. My kids finish trying all of them within 20 minutes. It's repetitive for some activities. We have tried another app that is free and gives a lot more option to do. I hope, highlight monster updates more game-scene in the future, only three is just boring.
