This app targets children when they are establishing their dental hygiene routine. Chomper Chums features three avatars: a blue lion, green alligator and pink horse, which teach children how to brush correctly, ensuring they reach all quadrants of the mouth. It also has a unique way to ensure brushing is timed correctly, by allowing children to chase a ‘sugar bug’ around each quadrant of the mouth for 30 seconds. This app also features timers for flossing and rinsing.
Similarly to the others, this app also has a wider focus: overall health. Chomper Chums use the interactive nature of the app to teach children about healthy food choices. Users will have to care for the avatar (who they get to name) by feeding it healthy food. If they choose unhealthy options, their avatar loses health. Avatars are also rewarded with ‘adventures’ if the child brushes for a number of consecutive days.
