Monsters, eh? They might not exist, but try telling your child that at bedtime… However, if your kids are worried about big hairy things with teeth hiding in their wardrobe, a new iPhone app called Monster Meter could be your saviour.
It’s a monster scanner. You run the app to ‘scan’ any room, to check if there are any monsters hiding there. In fact, there are four different virtual meters within the app – the idea being that one of them will convince your child that nothing nasty is lurking for lights-out time.
It sounds ideal. Plus, there’s a special mode that you can switch on to detect monsters. Why you’d want to do this, I don’t know – the App Store description suggests “when in a haunted house”. Maybe you have to detect the odd monster to convince your child that it’s telling the truth when it gets a clear scan.
Anyway, it’s a lovely idea, and one that could be a big help to parents whose children are getting upset at bumps in the dark.
