Habytars are a set of characters who have inhabited our Habyts software since we launched! Nobody is sure where they have come from, but they have just recently occupied the Child Dashboard. At the moment there are up to 10 to collect, each with their own personality.
Kids get an opportunity to earn a Habytar each time they complete a Task or when they didn't use all of their Play Time in one session.
Kids can earn up to 2 Habytars a day by clicking on the hexagon within their Child Dashboard.
They can click through to 'My Collection' at the bottom of the Habytar chance panel to view all their different earned Habytars. Kids can earn multiples of the same Habytar which will show in the red circle top right of each character.
There are rare Habytars that don't appear very often or are only available at certain times of the year.
If kids double click on each Habytar they get to learn a bit more about them like Brown Beard Bob below. Kids can also swap the order of the Habytars around by sliding them about.
When kids have earned their quota for the day they can view their collection at any time and can see how many they have on their homepage:
Kids can choose a specific Habytar for their profile picture by using the button on the details of the Character which says 'Set as my Habytar'.
If your kids have any characters they think we should have, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
