After you carve the pumpkins, drink some apple cider, and construct your kids’ costumes, sit down with your preschooler and enjoy Henry’s Spooky Headlamp by Campfire Apps; a fun game app designed just for them. Your child will guide Henry (that dashing young lad to the left) with the light from his headlamp, into the darkness, revealing Halloween objects like candy apples, friendly skeletons, and pumpkins.
Henry’s Spooky Headlamp is available for the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and the Nook for $.99.
Nothing about this app is scary, and it is simple for your preschooler to learn. Just place your finger on the screen, and it becomes the light that uncovers Halloween objects. Find the selected objects shown in the top right-hand corner. Play the game over and over to find more Halloween objects and beat your best time. Before you play the game, select an icon (objects like a butterfly, rocket, or flower), to represent each player’s best timed score; great for preschoolers who can’t spell their names yet. In the newest update, there is an interactive prize scene, where kids can design their own jack-o-lantern, along with many other fun surprises! After your child wins their first game, they’ll choose a pumpkin, and as they win and complete more games, they’ll earn more features to add to their pumpkin. When the pumpkin is complete, take a picture to save to your camera roll.
I love how Henry speaks to your child and engagingly asks him or her to join him. He enthusiastically instructs your child how to play, and there are also written instructions for you to help guide your little one. Here’s a hint, when you spot the object in the dark, hold your finger over it for a couple of seconds, it will enlarge, and you’ll receive the point. Watch the video below to see the app in action.
Henry’s Spooky Headlamp is a charming, simple and easy to play interactive game app for preschoolers, that is perfectly enjoyable for celebrating the spooky season. Get Henry’s Spooky Headlamp before Halloween is gone, although I feel my daughter will probably play it long after the pumpkins rot and the Halloween candy is eaten.
