Meet seven cats: Pink Fluffy, Red Paw, Redhead, Yell-Aww, Ginger, Purple Tom and Green Feline. They do their best to meow, miaow and mew classic child songs. They sing old American, Chinese and Polish folk songs, because why not? It's a game about remembering after all! They even meow Chopin!
But "Simon says MEOW" is not only about kid music! Cats play a MEMORY GAME with young girls and boys. When a child makes a mistake, cats hiss and sing out-of tune, but then they help out by giving hints. Kittens wave ears to attract attention and I that doesn't help, summon the mighty Finger the Bandmaster.
"Simon says MEOW" is a game similar to "Simon Says" toy, but with cats! Minor's goal is to tap cats in order to replay their song. The sequence is presented in the most natural way: a big in-game finger points the cats. Infant should follow this instruction and repeat the sequence. It's super-easy, like preschool games, but it's not mindless! When a youngster succesfully repeats the song, your little player actually has a sense of satisfaction. The game is made by a father, tested by kids and iterated many times, each melody is easy enough.
If watching and repeating is too easy, try to copy the tempo and harmony of the tune! Or on the contrary: play this game like a "cat piano", hit random sounds and watch furry musicians doing silly faces.
My son wasn't interested in singing, but after playing "Simon says MEOW" at first he started meowing, then humming, then asking about the lyrics and finally singing along with me! I believe this game is a perfect opportunity for starting a sing along fun with your little girl or boy.
So if you've got a child in a preschool or even nursery age, why don't you replace those greedy "apps for children" made by major publishers, infested with in-app purchases (hey Tale Fong, Pink Tab, Toono Toots) and try "Simon says MEOW" for a moment. At least it attempts to deliver a valuable experience, tailored for young kids.
