About The App:
Help boost responsibility! By making chores fun Funifi DO gets kids excited and wanting to do their chores. Set tasks and reward them for a job well done once completed! Parents and Kids can set chores, points for chores completed and reward for when done!

Benefits:
We have used this app for just over a week now and it’s become more of a game to the kids than a boring old chore app! The kids love trying to get more points than each other, and often are overly helpful to gain just a few more points. Not only does it boost responsibility, it also builds confidence (when they get their chores done, they feel great!) and with the kids able to request rewards, and even chores that they want to do gives them the drive to want to get things done so they can get that special reward of their choice!

Ease of Use:
It is extremely easy for parents and kids to login to their own accounts. I showed the kids once and they got the hang of it very quickly. I also found it easy, although I often click the wrong button and it would take me into the kids app, simply clicking the home button brought me to where I needed to be.

Fun Factor:
Funifi DO also has some other fun features such as cleanipedia! It’s a little pop up that tells you fun little tips. There is also colors you can choose for each child’s profile, and little characters thoughout which the kids find amusing and cute! The colors alone draw the kids in to see what is it I’m looking at, so once they see it they want to know more, and see what they can do within the app. It’s very appealing, and fun for the little ones.

Why use Funifi DO?:
Why not? Sure, chores are a part of life and we want our kids to WANT to do them without hesitation and to be helpful but let’s be honest… Sometimes kids just don’t want to help out. I’m a firm believer of them helping, but not all the time and not big responsibilities either. With Funifi DO you can pick from simple (picking up toys, making a bed) to a bit more responsibility (doing the dishes, walking the dog) but nothing too extreme or above the age group your kids fall under. I find this much easier to use than a regular ol’ pen and paper, or something stuck to the fridge. Those get lost too easily in my house… wink, wink.

Why Reward them for something expected of them?:
Because it’s fun! There’s no harm in making things a bit more fun! I’m not sure about you but when we ask our 11 year old to take out the garbage it’s a constant struggle from him with sighs, stomps and the often mutter under his breath. Meanwhile he’s walking around with a $500 smartphone and a bill paid every month. I think there is no harm in extra responsibility and added incentive is fun for them and makes them work toward something. Not much different from school, or everyday life but a bit more fun!

I have made a spot for Jordan, Kyla, Ava and Jayden (ages 11, 8, 7 and 5) and so far they’ve all been enjoying without complaints. I was thrilled to find when I put Jordan’s birth date in it gave responsibilities for us to choose from rather than the same as Jayden or the girls. Each child got 3 different chores to do from me and they got to pick another of their choice.

What we all think of Funifi DO:
MOM: It’s fun. It helps me keep on top of what needs to be done, and who is doing what they need to. It helps take a little bit of the hassle away from me too, so I’m not running around all day trying to do everything or trying to remember who forgot to do what. It’s very easy to navigate and add/remove items from rewards and the chores list. I especially love the fact without my password the kids can’t tinker around with anything, and change anything. It’s an app that I think I’ll be using for years to come.

JORDAN: It’s really easy to use. I like that I can easily tap which chore I’ve finished and automatically get the points instead of waiting for mom to do it for me. It’s fun trying to beat everyone else with my scores too.

KYLA: I don’t like chores. But with the app if I don’t do some chores I won’t get the points. The other kids can do more chores and get more points, and we like to see who can get the most points! I am in 2nd place after Jordan and I will beat him for my reward!

AVA: This is a fun app! Better than our chores being on the fridge and fighting over which person has to do what chore! I like that I can finish my chores and go on to say I’m done without anyone’s help!

JAYDEN: I like the colors, and the chores are fun to do because I can get rewards! I really want to go to the movies with mom without the other kids so I will beat their scores! We’ll get popcorn and I can get my points back up and go again!

If you are looking for a way to make chores just a little bit more fun and rewarding Funifi DO is the app for you!

  1. When I was a kid, my siblings and I would always try to make chores fun. We would play games and the loser had to dust, do dishes.. etc. We thought it was fun at the time. I like your way better.

  2. My 10 year old is awesome about doing his chores and other things that I ask him to. He’s such a good boy. My little man on the other hand always gives me a hassle when I ask him to do things. I mean, even something as simple as throwing his trash in the trash. He’d let it sit there next to him until I walked by and did it for him. UGH. This app sounds like it might help me motivate him a little more :)

    1. My oldest and youngest are the EXACT same way Robin. As the older child, I get it, I was always more responsible than my siblings were. My mom had it so good! LOL

  3. If the Funifi DO will get Tyler, Alyssa and Abby excited about doing chores, I’m in all the way. I’ll also share it with friends and family members because everyone has problems inspiring their kids to do chores. What a fun idea, thanks so much for sharing.

  4. This is such a great app. I wonder if this will work for my 18 year old. It is still a pain to get him to clean his room.

  5. Man as much as I hated doing chores when I was a kid (mainly it was cleaning my own bedroom! LOL) I loved receiving that $2.00 bill every Saturday. Do you remember the two dollar bills? Am I aging myself? I do know I’m a few years older than you :( And imagine, two bucks a week! HAHA That’s nothin’ but it kept my room clean at least.

    What kind of rewards do you set for your children? I’d be interested in hearing! I love that you allowed them to pick what sort of chores they wanted to complete – gives them a bit of an option too, right? Not like “Here, you’re stuck cleaning the TOILET” LOL.

    Awww I love that you interviewed your buddies at the end! LOL Kyla, I don’t like chores either buddy.

  6. There’s nothing like a little healthy competition to help kids get stuff done!! I love the idea of this app. Genius. I’m not a mom, but I AM a proud aunt of 6 nieces and nephews, from ages 1-18, so this app would be perfect for when I babysit! :)

  7. It’s great to have kids help in doing household chores. Parents who don’t hire a nanny or a helper in the house will really appreciate their kids. With the use of the Funifi Do app, kids will be more encouraged to take part and share their time to accomplish chores and then get rewarded for the job well done!

  8. OH I really love this! We are about to start doing a few little chores with my three year old. Like setting the table. I can’t wait to pull this out and have him earn points! It looks like your kiddos had so much fun!

  9. Looks and sounds like such a great app, I wish we had something like this when I was a kid. The ease of use and the fact that kids are having fun and are very happy to build up their points is really awesome.

  10. I like the way you broke it down and you’re right sometimes kids just don’t want to help. Just like sometimes we don’t. I always tell mine they have to do what they’ve got to do so they can do what they want to do. My teen is not buying it all of the time though. She could use a little motivation. ;)

  11. WoW that is one of the most amazing apps I have ever seen. I can imagine kids love it and love doing there chores to earn points. I for sure would have loved something like this being around when my daughter was a kid.

  12. I didn’t know you could use the word FUN & CHORES in the same sentence! haha This is actually really awesome, something I would def try with the kids as they HATE doing chores. If I can throw the word FUN into it, maybe they might enjoy it more. We could def use the points for an award system of some sorts. This gets me excited in all.

  13. This sounds like a great way to get kids to do their chores, without really realizing they’re doing it. Kids love anything that a competition, although if you only have one kid I’m not sure this app would be as effective! Still a great idea though.

  14. Oh what a great idea for an app! Kinds love being on phones and tablets anyways, so why not use them to help out with chores! I’m going to download this for sure!

  15. It’s George here from Funifi.

    I’m really glad everyone seems to like the concept. We’re constantly working hard to make it as suited as possible to our parents needs so make sure you send through feedback if there is anything you would like to see added to the app or if something isn’t working the way you expect it to, or just to say hi :)

    We really believe that by completing chores we’re helping our children to become more responsible, well rounded little people who will eventually become big people with these qualities so it’s really important for us that we offer maximum value to our users.

    That’s me done :) hope you keep enjoying Funifi DO and follow us on any of our channels to stay updated!

  16. OMgoodness…what a clever concept, and it looks so cute and inviting. I know this would work for my nephew, and I am going to have to show this to my brother. At school, they have this Class Dojo that he races home to see how the teacher has graded his behavior and class work. So, I know this would motivate him. Plus, it would be a good way for him to earn electronics time.

  17. This is awesome & Kids are going to be super excited when they can set their own tasks & get rewarded as well for a perfect job done. I agree it should me more like a Fun game rather than a formal app to do daily activities or any sort of reminders. Love this idea so much & my kids are going to love it as well.

  18. Ok…this is brilliant! I don’t have kids old enough to use this yet but as soon as I do, I am downloading this app. I wish I had thought of this idea first! ;) I am so glad that your kids are loving it and are having fun with it. Cheers to your always clean & organized house now!! Xo
