Here Kitty! is a real-world hide and seek game you play by hiding your phone. It's from the same team behind Heads Up. When the child calls out or gets near the phone makes cat noises to give them clues to find it. When it's found the phone plays a tune and tells them how long it took and offers a fun-cat-fact.

There are different cats and animals that you can select to hide. A new creature is added each Saturday. For really young children, of pre-school age, it's a great way to have some fun around the house while also adding a bit of a video game feel to the game.
