Azawhistle Kids Everything Has A Home is a unique interactive story about a boy named Tejas and his dog Lollipop. Lollipop is no ordinary dog, in fact she is a very wise pup that practices “mashpotato” (meditation) and yoga to help clear her mind. She teaches Tejas how to mashpotato too which leads him to a grand idea in a moment of boredom to clean his room as a surprise for his mother. He soon realizes how overwhelming his messy room can be and devises a plan to find a home for everything. Children help Tejas tidy his room by placing every item in the right place. This fun and interactive app is not only a good story, but one that will teach children the good habit of tidying their own room.
