…Kids and a blue monster tackle everyday frustrations -- such as struggling to tie shoes, dealing with separation anxiety, taking turns, and going to bed -- and learn how to deal with them. Kids have to work through one of the five problems before unlocking the next. Animated video clips show the blue monster's problem, and then kids tap his belly to help him breathe deeply and calm down. When the monster is calm, kids tap thought bubbles, which produce three possible strategies. Kids get to choose which strategy the monster will try, and then they see him attempt it in another animated video clip. The technique of breathing, thinking, and doing is reinforced throughout.”
