Get to Know a Friendly Monster

Help your preschooler learn about friendship, explore the world around them, and develop compassion, kindness and independence with Highlights Monster Day app.

Kids ages 3 and up can choose a favorite monster buddy and care for him from morning till night: brush his big teeth, feed him bagels, help with his science experiment and play basketball. At the end of their buddy’s day, they can wash and feed him, and gently send him to bed.

This imaginative app was named winner of the 2016 Editor's Choice Award from Children's Technology Review, and also of a 2016 Parents' Choice Silver Award.

What Kids Will Love

In the Highlights Monster Day app, preschoolers can follow their busy monster buddy on a routine that most kids can relate to: waking up, having breakfast, going off to school and more. Through 13 different scenes, kids can ring the monster’s alarm clock, feed him exotic fruit for breakfast, and smash rocks to help him find gems in class.

Preschoolers will get a kick out of:

  • Five friendly monsters to choose from, with an opportunity to unlock more!
  • Choosing their buddy’s wardrobe, snacks and activities for the day
  • Hilarious expressions and reactions from their monster friends
  • Up to 13 morning, mealtime, school and after-school activities

LOVE this app
This is now my granddaughter's phone. She cannot get enough hours playing with the monsters. Then she says 'take a pic' and i have enough of those showing up! It teaches her that a picture is more than a picture and if you do this, then this happens- like pumping the tire pump. Highlights excels at the app creation. Need more!

Not so good
Not as good as the Highlights shapes ap. I do not see any educational value in this.

Great game
This is a great game to keep my toddler occupied. She loves it and can play for a while.

Keep little ones entertained for long periods of time. The little monster is animated and tasks are easy for little fingers.

Son enjoys this, wish there were more parental control
My 2.5 son really enjoys this monster app- it's a reward for daily good behavior. He gets to play for 10 minutes and loves all the different games he can do with the monster. I wish the app had the ability to set a timer for when to turn off, and also allowed the parent to disable certain features. Maybe the next update ? :)
