Review Comments
Pepi Bath is one of the most engaging apps for supporting toileting, washing hands, bathing and washing clothes. In each story, the child interacts with the objects in the scene. They touch the taps to turn on, lift the shampoo up onto the boy's hair and even flush the toilet.
 
The toilet section is my favourite. There are both boy and girl cartoon animations in this app. For toileting, both the boy and girl sit on the toilet. One of the funniest and most useful animation is when you press the stomach of the character, she bears down and you can hear her do a poo and a wee. This very direct way of teaching is really important for students with additional needs. She then prompts the child to get the toilet paper. She needs three good wipes. The toilet paper then needs to go in the bin (in Australia we usually put it in the toilet, but that's okay). Then she prompts the child to pull the chain to flush the toilet. She is sitting on the toilet when it flushes. The bathroom now may be a little smelly, so the student can press on the air freshener to make it smell just nice.
 
I have used Pepi on many occasions as a visual preparation tool for students to encourage them to toilet. It is so much fun to watch, my students want to play this game over and over.
 
Pepi Bath also includes washing hands. She puts on the soap, the washes her hands under water. She brushes her teeth- without toothpaste. She can blow her nose too. It is great to see the difference when you come Pepi's wild hair. When the child chooses the scissors, Pepi shakes her head for 'No". I am not sure why the scissors are there.
 
There are also fun animations for bath time and putting on the washing.
 
These wonderful stories will engage any child (and adult) to play and practice personal care activities.

Leisure App
Leisure apps are games designed for fun but can still offer a wonderful opportunity to support the student's learning.
Bloom's Thinking Process
Bloom's Taxonomy is classification system used to explain the behaviours important in learning. Apps range from simple memory tasks such as flashcards apps through to creative apps which ask students to create an original story or video.
Bloom's Creating
The student creates new ideas, products or ways of viewing things. Activities include making, animating, designing, constructing, planning, producing and inventing.
Bloom's Evaluating
The student justifies a decision or course of action. Activities include counting to check, hypothesising, critiquing, experimenting and judging.
Bloom's Analysing
The student breaks the information into parts to explore understandings and relationships. Activities include explaining, ordering, inferring, comparing and organising.
Bloom's Applying
The student uses the information in a new situation. Activities include implementing, carrying out, using, illustrating, classifying and categorising.
Bloom's Understanding
The student comprehends the new information. Activities include describing, predicting showing understanding use a multiple choice.
Bloom's Remembering
The student recalls information they know. Activities include matching, 'fill in the blank', making a choice, answering using a multiple choice, naming a group.
Learning Connection
How well does the app teach the targeted skill or concept? This is the area where we refer to current research and pedagogy to evaluate the efficacy of the app.
Authenticity
Authenticity looks at the manner in which skills are learnt. Authentic apps use real life or genuine activities. Students learn in context rather than in a contrived or rote fashion (such as flashcards).
Feedback
Feedback needs to be specific and result in improved performance. Feedback should be supportive and encouraging rather than negative. Data should be available to support decision making.
Differentiation
Differentiation is the ability to customise the app to suit the student. The ability to record you voice, customise text, add pictures and alter settings enables individualisation of the app.
User Friendliness
User friendliness is a measure of how well a student can use the app independently. Some apps are simply intuitive to use. Others include audio or visual prompts which support the student.
Motivation
All apps are engaging the first time they are played. However, students with diverse learning needs may need to return to the app many times. Motivating apps offer rewards,games or incentives.
Personal Care
Personal care includes a broad set of daily living skills ranging from personal grooming and hygiene to dressing, eating meals and toileting. These apps provide visual support and may give guidance or explain the steps in personal care routines.

Developer's Description
PEPI BATH is a pretend play, self-care game where children learn about hygiene in a fun way. Play together with your kids and help them understand the importance of hygiene while developing daily bathroom routines and healthy habits.


The app has 4 different situations in which cute character PEPI – a boy or a girl – appears: at the sink, washing clothes, going to a toilet and taking a bath.
Every scene offers nice and simple interactions that will help to develop daily bath routines. Characters have a wide range of animated emotions, to react to player actions, so they will frown if something goes not to their liking. This design choice allowed us to create an app without any spoken language, making it widely accessible for audiences all around the world, regardless of spoken language or age.

PEPI BATH can be played both as a set process of cleaning or without any pre-set sequence, thus little players are free to choose what they want to do.
Cleanliness is fun, however, after washing PEPI’s hands or brushing teeth, kids can pop soap bubbles or play with colorful sprayers, rubber ducks and other items and toys.

PEPI BATH was created as a premium app to be experienced by parents and kids of ages 2 to 6. As such, this app contains no in-app purchases or third-party advertising.
