Welcome to the Sweet Little Shops! It's an extra special week at the market, and Hello Kitty needs you! Help her manage all six shops, meet new friends and use mathematics to serve customers, fill orders, sort groceries, pack up goodies and more. Complete quests to unlock all five themed days and earn stickers to decorate your photos. Play 3 levels of market fun to solve a total of 40 quests!
Every level is a new day packed full of fun! As you visit all the shops with the day's theme, play mathematics games to complete quests and earn friendship points to advance. With up to 10 themed quests in each day, there's always something new to learn and discover!
Five mini games include: Filling orders using charts; estimating the correctly sized package to hold your goodies; catching the right mix of numbered ingredients for a tasty treat; sorting grocery items on conveyor belts; and searching for the correct number of items.
Plus, play four fun activities: Use your estimation skills to guess how many jellybeans are in the jellybean jar and construct a chart to see your friends' favorite flavor of the day. Earn stickers as you play and use the built-in camera on LeapPad™ learning tablets and LeapsterGS Explorer™ to take, create and decorate photos Hello Kitty style.
"A robust, diverse title for developing mathematicians, Hello Kitty brings together foundational skills such as number recognition and shape knowledge with equally important but less familiar skills such as estimation and reading tables, charts, and graphs. The game is set in recognizable, lifelike scenarios, showing children that mathematics is all around them and is important for real life." - Jody L., LeapFrog Learning Expert

Tables, charts and graphs
The ability to use graphical representation, such as tables, graphs, charts and grids, is important in solving and enjoying real-life math problems.
Children use their knowledge of numbers and quantities to make reasonable guesses about "how many" and "how much" without counting.
Early number sense
Children learn to count and compare sets of objects as well as identify numerals as standing for specific quantities.
Sorting and classifying
Sorting and classifying objects based on size, function, or weight involves logical reasoning skills essential for learning.
