Wellapets Game App Helps Kids Manage Asthma & $50 Amazon Gift Card #Giveaway

This is a sponsored post to help spread the word about Wellapets.

My kids don’t have bad allergies or asthma, but of course we all know a child who does. Especially when allergies are extreme, I know that my friends feel more confident once their children are old enough to know what they can and cannot eat or touch or breathe.

The Wellapets are virtual pets, little dragons, who have asthma. By caring for them, kids learn how to care for their own asthma. Watch the preview video below:

I downloaded the app from the amazon app store onto my Kindle Fire (it’s also available for android on Google Play and of course at itunes). My 9 1/2 year old son tried it out, and I was honestly surprised how much he liked it. I asked him who he thought it would be good for, and he said, “Maybe 6 to 10 year olds?” I said, “What about people who have asthma?” The specific target audience had not even occurred to him! He just thinks it’s fun. I will say that if a child can’t read, he or she would need some help, but it’s pretty intuitive once someone shows them what is going on.

His one complaint is that there’s a time limit on it. The pet can only breathe fire (and thus wipe out the smog to move to the next level) every 8 hours. However, in the meantime, you can decorate your room, which he enjoyed, or play the game where you slash the triggers but avoid slashing the inhalers (just like a ninja).

I will say that though he didn’t like this feature, I think that it’s helped the game to keep his interest. He returns each day to check on his Wellapet and face a new adventure. If he could have just played and played, he might have gotten tired of it more quickly.

The app is available right now for FREE for android, apple, and Kindle.

    Yes, my son developed Asthma when he was an infant. We worked with the doctors to make sure we could control the triggers, however, it seemed that colds or flu was his many trigger. He has pretty much out grew a lot of the rough symptoms, but still will have a flare up every now and then. I wish this would have been available 20 years ago, it certainly would have helped. I would use the gift card on various items to make Easter baskets. :)
