How to Play

In ParkPals, players begin by creating a critter; will it have long ears and a top hat, or big eyes with sunglasses? Next, kids pick a name, and they’re ready to play. Throughout four mini-games, children train their critter to be kind by playing Fair and Square, Responsibility Response, Respect Detector, and Safety Hop. Players can test their critter’s skills by heading to the game’s park. As they encounter tricky social situations, they earn points for making honorable choices. Each mini-game is 5–10 minutes in length.
