Luca Lashes Visits Mommy in the Hospital
Luca Lashes is one of several well-designed apps that feature young Luca, a character with the ability to summon up new levels of bravery by simply blinking his long lashes twice. Kids loved this and every single child who played with this app could be seen blinking as hard as they could. Luca Lashes Visits Mommy in the Hospital is a story about Luca’s mom in the hospital because she’s not feeling well and needs extra care. While this is a very specific issue and isn’t going to be something you turn to regularly (hopefully) it still does a marvelous job of de-mystifying the strange and sometimes scary place a hospital can be. There are interactive elements like clicking on the IV Drip, pressing the elevator button, and so on. The app doesn’t shy away from the fact that Luca is sad that his Mom is hurting. Luca asks his dad how much longer till his mom will be home, and the dad explains that his mom will come home when her “owie” is gone. He tells his son to keep being brave and to keep blinking his eyes. The app is multi-lingual and at the end of the “book” there are very sensible and helpful tips for parents.
