When the game opens the first time, the children choose their preferred dragon egg. When the egg hatches, the child has his or hers own baby dragon. The baby dragon has to be fed and trained each day, and each of the tasks(mini games) consists of working memory training and pedagogical exercises. The reward for each completed game is food for the dragon. The dragon grows together with the progress of the child.
