About Sago Mini Friends

Sago Mini Friends is an open ended, no narrative app which allows children to explore at their own pace. Sago Mini Friends lets kids touch, try, play, experiment, and observe. This playful app is best for kids who like to explore independently, without rules or guidance. 

Teacher Review

In the Sago Mini Friends app, kids visit their animal friends to play mini-games together. The fun part of Sago Mini Friends is being in control and directing the activities. Let kids play individually so they can choose their own animal, choose which doorbell to ring, and fully interact with each activity. However, to extract learning from this experience, teachers should use Sago Mini Friends as a prompt for discussion about social interactions, working with others, and feelings.

Kids start by choosing to be one of the five Sago Mini characters, and they will then be transported to a street full of houses, each with a different friend looking out of the window. Kids can decide which friend’s house they want to visit by ringing the doorbell. Kids get to play interactive mini-games at each home, for example, blow up balloons and watch them float away, water a plant, wash dishes, play dress-up, fix a birdhouse, eat fruits, play with trains, have a sleepover, and more. There are 10 mini-games in total. 

Each activity helps parents teach a wonderful lesson to their toddlers, for example, why do plants need water, how to dress-up, or why one should eat fruits.

Kids can learn about playing well with others -- taking turns, sharing, and getting along with friends. They'll learn about cause and effect, seeing the impact their taps and touches have on the toys and characters. Kids are empowered to choose which house to play in and how to play, giving toddlers and young PreSchoolers the sense of control over their environment they crave and learn from. Sago Mini Friends lets little ones explore and learn social skills in a fun way.
