How
to Play
“Happy Circus” is a memory game to exercise the
memory through a series of animal sounds.
Barks, chirps, squeaks … animal sounds can be heard
everywhere! The whole circus is in chaos. What's going on
here? What happened? Ha-ha, don't worry. It’ s only our
apprentice magicians playing with the animals! Whenever you
hear different animals make sounds in a sequence, you have
to press on the corresponding animals on the map in the same
sequence as you heard them. An extra animal sound will be
added at the start of every round – making the game
increasingly difficult. The last player standing wins the game.
The game is easy to handle. All you need to do is listen
carefully to the questions and make quick judgments,
Click on the corresponding animal to answer. This is the
game that moves up your ears, brains and hands!
1. Place the game map on the beyond tablet. When you hear
the intro music and voice instructions, you can start playing.

To parents
What parents want to see most is their child growing up happy.
Parent-child games make children feel love and warmth from
their parents as well as experience happiness and sense of
achievement by playing. It is an effective way to help children
build a sense of security and develop self-confidence.
“What can parents and children play?” “How to play?” is a
troubling question for many parents. Choosing a suitable game
for all family members to play together and with effective and
scientific guidance will further develop a child’ s various
abilities, and thus make parent-child interaction more efficient
and more valuable.
There are two kinds of relationships in parent-child games that
are based on kinship. The first one is horizontal, in which the
parents and the child are equal playmates. The other one is
vertical, in which parents are leading and teaching the child.
These two kinds of relationships make parent-child games
both emotional and educational. These two characteristics are
the most valuable elements of a parent-child game.
Key points
1. Help children understand the rules of the game and
distinguish what animal sound it is.
In order to distinguish different kinds of animal sounds,
children should understand the differences of various animal
sounds first. There are four kinds of sounds in “Happy
Circus” . Parents can click on the “Help” button first to let the
child understand the differences. After the child is familiar with
these, parents can then let the child play the game.
2. “Why can’ t he or she do it right?” Don’ t worry; the
memory of your child is gradually strengthening!
The memorizing process includes “remembering” and
“recalling” . When a child is paying attention to the question
(or listens to the animal sound sequence) from Beyond Tablet,
he or she is actually in the process of “remembering” . The
use of a finger to select the animals on the game map is the
process of “recalling” .
There will be one more animal sound added in each level. With
t he r e p e ti ti v e o c c u rre n c e o f th e previ ous ani mal sound
sequence and the incremental increase in the number of
animal sounds, children need to remember more and more
content. Each child (and adult) has a memory pocket, for
collection and reviewing what they see and hear. The richer
the contents of the memory pocket, the cleverer the child is.
When they grow up, these memories become part of them and
affect every step of their lives.
3. Do not always let the child play on his or her own.
Play together to help establish a sense of rules.

of the game
Before
the game
Parents need to know in advance what their
child is recently interested in, so as to better
guide the child to play the game.
During
the game
1) Respect the wishes of the children, and let
them choose the game mode they like;
2) Play together with children to further improve
the parent-child relationship;
3) Give tips when children do not play in
accordance with the rules of the game.
After
the game
Give specific encouragement to the child’ s
good performance to encourage his or her
experience of playing games.
During game play, parents can help the child understand the
rules of the game. Having the parent personally practicing the
rules of the game in order to let the child understand and
respect these rules is a prerequisite for success. It can also
promote the inhibitory control of the child. The ability to master
rules will be further developed, as well as the formation of rule
consciousness.
