Platform: iPad

In Match & Learn The Professions, a Petita Demas app for children aged two through six years, children are introduced to various professions through ten colorfully illustrated characters. Children tap each of three horizontal sections to choose/change the head, torso, and legs to match and complete each profession. Successful matching earns badges and unlock animations inside the story, which describes what each character does. They meet a doctor, a race car driver, a firefighter, a basketball player, a chef, an astronaut, a cowboy, a builder, a ballet dancer, and a traffic officer.

The app is a playful way for children to learn a variety of professions and to start talking about what each entails. The silly combinations (a policeman's head and a basketball player's legs) spark delightful tangents. "What do you want to be when you grow up?"
