A virtual playhouse where you are in control! My PlayHome showcases 6 different rooms of a house (kids bedroom, master bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, family room, and backyard). This app also comes in a lite version (free), but does not contain all the rooms.
My PlayHome is an original, multi-purpose, entertaining, yet educational app available in the App Store. Once purchased, you will be hooked navigating and exploring the different rooms with all you can do! This app is beyond impressive in its interactive capabilities. It is extremely user-friendly with no instructions needed. The main screen on the app only showcases one function, “Tidy the House.” This feature allows you to put the rooms back to the original settings (if you were playing with it previously). Once you begin, the user can touch to add people into the scene. To remove a character from your scene you must drag them back into their original spot. You can also investigate other rooms of the house and see what they have to offer by touching the arrows on the screen. From a therapist’s perspective, My PlayHome allows you to touch on multiple speech and language goals. Children and teens get to use their imaginations in this app and create stories, link ideas, and be engaged all while working on verbs, pronouns, labeling, and even following directions to name a few. This app is also great for working on complex sentences or having them describe a room or what they’re doing (i.e. Q: What is he doing?- A: He is jumping on the trampoline). Really, the educational characteristics of this app are endless.
