Current wearable device virtual assistant user response interfaces are primarily text-based and designed for adults. This disclosure describes a virtual assistant for wearable devices that provides audio and/or graphical responses, with little to no text. When the virtual assistant is used by a child, a face of a character is used as the main user interface. The personality of the character, e.g., the tone of the audio response, the character visuals, etc. can be customized by a parent. With user and parent permission, the virtual assistant character can detect and react to the surrounding environment or other cues.
