my friend sana

The Lives of children are meant to be joyful, free from stress, anxiety and worries. Unfortunately this is not always the case. Certain situations can often make children nervous or anxious, and there can often be a negative effect on a childs self esteem when they are met with new challenges or possible failures.

Through the medium of an iPad game, “My Friend Sana” is a virtual pet simulator that helps teach and reaffirm basic skills and good habits for everyday life. Sana is cute, cuddle-y and an excellent mentor for children of all ages, helping to keep children focused and interested in the game while they play and learn. With “My Friend Sana” children can learn to eat well, bathe often, get creative and help to improve motor skills and memory, all while they learn to take care of their new best friend.
