The avatar is an animated cartoon child who keeps each player company as they journey through the Ignite by Hatch™ digital experiences.
Each child will create their avatar the first time they log in. They have the option to choose the gender, hair, and skin of their own character or avatar. They can also choose their avatar's clothing and accessories. Some children will design avatars that look like themselves, and others may design an avatar that does not resemble them, to serve as more of a "buddy."
Children will then have the option to edit their avatar inside the Ignite application after the completion of each game set (three digital experiences). As a reward for finishing three digital experiences, children will get to choose and add "gear" for their avatar to the avatar's dressing room. The gear may include new hairstyles, glasses, clothing, or even animal costumes.
Avatars provide a way for children to get creative and express themselves as they learn with Ignite and to feel like they have a companion along the way!
