Six activities allow the child to play and work with faces, facial
expressions and appearance. Activities range from cause and effect to matching,
including the whimsical Potato Face activity where the child can experiment with
thousands of wacky combinations. Potato Face works with keyboard, mouse, touch
screen, track ball or up to three switches. Players make simple choices to
control the program and explore, match or play. The program has dozens of
options for teacher control, including a variety of input options, the ability
to default to a single sex and/or skin color, setting program colors and sounds,
and the number of choices available to the player.

Cause and Effect
Use a key or switch to scroll through
a variety of fun facial expressions, animations and sound effects. An optional
2nd switch repeats the animation for an additional effect.
Each time the switch is pressed, a new
random part is added to your face. With millions of combinations, you will
probably never see the same face twice.
