Got a little one at home who never hesitates to say what’s on their mind? It’s not always a bad thing. The trick is learning to temper the truth with kindness. Watch Big Mouth with your kids and see what we mean.

Time for some fun! Play this adventure game for kids aged 7 to 77 that deals with social innovation and sustainable economy issues in a slightly absurd, funny and quirky manner. Start playing!
