The aim of the game is to successfully match up the three body parts of each character by swiping the sections into focus. Once the player has successfully lined up the body parts an animation plays of the character doing a funny dance.
It consists of 8 levels (the first of which is free) based around the following themes:
- Jungle animals
- People who help us
- Farm animals
Each level has its own unique characters, music and animations.
Children will enjoy swiping through the character sets and experimenting with different body combinations. The simplicity of the swiping motion is very rewarding and as such the game is suitable to use with pre-school children. However, some of the levels require more advanced observation skills to line up the characters correctly, making it equally enjoyable for an older audience.
It is now available to download on the App Store.

Each level uses the same format, however the characters, backdrop, animations and music change each time. Some of the levels are more difficult than others, for example during testing our participants found that the Pirates were more difficult to match up than the Jungle Animals.
