My Lil’ Hiking Buddy is an app crafted for children, encouraging
both kids and families to explore nearby trails.
User Journey 
My goal was to provide a platform for kids to create their own hiking buddy. This personalized companion becomes a delightful partner that children would want to choose to accompany them on their trail adventures.
App and Google Play Store
Customization instills a sense of ownership, making the buddy feel uniquely theirs, and motivates kids to get out into nature. 
Parent Mode
Badges & Social Media
Kids Mode
Based on what buddy is selected during onboarding, the icon in the navigation changes to match. This helps make the app feel more personalized.
Creating a section where kids could further customize and dress up their hiking buddy created a reward system to encourage kids to go outside more to unlock clothing and different decorations for their buddy.
