A dress up game for children

October 11th, 2007 by Seb Chan

We’ve rolled out another simple game for young children over at our children’s website – Play at Powerhouse.

This one is called Zoe’s Dress Up Game and revolves around the Museum’s two children’s mascots – Zoe, a girl representing the local community, and Cogs, a robot that represents the Museum’s knowledge and collection. The game is very simple – find the appropriate clothes for Zoe to wear for one of three different outings.

Zoe’s Dress Up Game is one in a series of simple website interactives used to build familiarity with the Museum’s mascots and children’s brand, as well as teach basic memory and computer operation/coordination skills. They complement a range of offline craft activities that can be downloaded from the Make & Do part of the website.
