Six activities allow the user to play and work with faces, facial expressions and appearance. Activities range from cause and effect to matching, including the whimsical Potato Face activity where the user can experiment with thousands of wacky combinations.
Players make simple choices to control the program and explore, match or play. They choose from dozens of skin colors, hair styles, eyes, mouths and noses. The player chooses each part of the face in turn until the face is complete. They can then choose from dozens of shirts, hats, jewelry, nail painting, face painting, glasses and mustaches.
Lots if settings allow the teacher to custom-tailor the software to best suit the needs and abilities of each player, and limit the number of choices, control music and sound effects, and set how the program interacts with the user.
