In Hiding Hippos, children use their memory and observation skills to find cute hiding hippos. As they find baby hippos hiding in enticing environments, they learn to appreciate how unique and special their own brain is.
In the first level, hippos wearing various colorful swim tubes run in and out of beach cabanas, laughing as they go. Two of the hippos hide behind cabanas and the player is asked to find different color hippos. After finding all the hiding hippos, a segment of the Hippocampus Hip Hop song plays with nuggets of knowledge about memory and the hippocampus.
The hiding places change in each level. Players discover new environments and the challenge grows as they are asked to find more hippos.

Children learn about memory and the hippocampus and gain a new sense of wonder and appreciation for their brain as a whole. This encourages them to protect and nurture their brain.
