Families Love DardaCats


“We got to bond in a different way. What
we got to do is talk about emotions, &
that’s something we don’t usually get to
do in a fun way. The bonding was nice. 
It didn’t feel like learning. It felt like
playing, it was nice.”

“I loved that it was an opportunity for him
to recollect these scenarios & to release
emotions. We don’t talk about these
things in specifics, so it was insightful
for me to know what his
thoughts were.”

“It’s almost like this DardaCat gives
them the right to remove
whatever filter they want. He’s more
honest.  If he wants to act more
creatively, he can because it’s the
DardaCat, not him. He wants to do
something that’s silly, he can because
it’s the DardaCat and not him. ”

"I loved the engagement I had with
Martha during the game, as well as the
fun side. Martha laughed a lot at
everything that was happening. I loved
listening to her stories, and the fact that
the game triggered that in her.

It’s truly a 100% a family activity.“

For children ages 3+ and their parents too! 

We set out to create a game with 3 objectives in mind:

  1. Being simple: Feelings are complicated enough, so let's make sure exploring them isn’t.

  2. Being safe: We worked closely with child specialists and co-created with families to build a game that offers a safe space for players to bond.

  3. Being silly: The game must leave room for players to let go of their inhibitions and have fun together!
