In Hiding Hippos, children use their memory and observation skills to find cute hiding hippos. As they find baby hippos hiding in enticing environments, they learn to appreciate how unique and special their own brain is.
In the first (free) level, hippos wearing various colorful swim tubes run in and out of beach cabanas, laughing as they go. Two of the hippos hide behind cabanas and the player is asked to find different color hippos. After finding all the hiding hippos, a segment of the Hippocampus Hip Hop song plays with nuggets of knowledge about memory and the hippocampus.
More levels are available in the full version of Hiding Hippos. The hiding places change in each level. Players discover new environments and the challenge grows as they are asked to find more hippos.
The lively song Hippocampus Hip Hop is available in both the free and the full app. The little hippos dance around Ms. Hippo as she performs and teaches about how your hippocampus helps you remember.
Children learn about memory and the hippocampus and gain a new sense of wonder and appreciation for their brain as a whole. This encourages them to protect and nurture their brain.
Hiding Hippos is the first in Morphonix’ forthcoming suite of NeuroPlay Adventures: mobile apps, stories, and songs that introduce children ages 5-8 to the workings of the brain in a fun and engaging way. Each app will introduce children to new wonders, new abilities, and new parts of the brain.
